Prisoners of the Forest
Few of the thousands of British holiday-makers who flock to Spain every year will have any idea of the magnificent wildlife to be found in the last remaining woods of the Spanish high sierras.
This very beautiful and dramatic documentary reveals that the Spanish forests are the home of some of the rarest and most secretive animals in Europe. Sequences of hawks and eagles are matched by spectacular displays of rutting stags and ibex.
