Dogs In the Wild: Meet The Family is the first series to concentrate solely on the family of dogs in the wild that has been produced by BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit. Narrated by Chris Packham, this 3 x 60-minute series will feature astonishing cinematography, together with emotional and immersive storytelling around the remarkable members of one 37-strong family of wild dogs.
