Naturalist Stewart McPherson travels to all the UK Overseas Territories, exploring their wildlife, landscapes, history and people
Stewart McPherson, writer, explorer, and naturalist, sets out to follow his childhood dream – to be the first person to set foot on every one of Britain’s overseas Territories.

We follow him on a journey which will take him across all Seven Seas, allow him to study some of the most pristine nature reserves on the planet, and one which will see him cross paths with conservationists, “Saints”, survivors of volcanic eruptions, and the descendants of infamous mutineers. Along the way, we consider the precarious situation of many of these territories – sometimes politically, sometimes environmentally - and the challenges faced by those trying to protect them.
