An award-winning nature documentary telling the story of one of the world's biggest birds of prey, the white-tailed eagle - once persecuted, then brought back to the UK in the 1970s.

This film has attracted a lot of attention - firstly by winning best environment film at Banff, then by winning the people's choice award at Kendal. Directed by Ted Simpson, who also directed The Cull, the film dives unflinchingly into the controversy, pulling back the curtain on the reintroduction process, and combining breathtaking visuals with heart stopping action. The cameras even turn onto the filmmakers themselves as this epic documentary ultimately asks us - will we ever learn to live alongside the eagle with the sunlit eye? And what will we lose if we can’t?
