The Really Wild Show to make comeback

"The Really Wild Show" is set to make a television comeback.

The children's nature programme was pulled off air 11 years ago following two decades on screen, but fans may be in for a treat as the series" original presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan are in talks with the BBC about the possibility of doing a revamp in order to target a new generation of animal lovers.

"Springwatch" host Chris said: "There have been a few chats about bringing "The Really Wild Show" back. There is a certain amount of nostalgia for it."

However, although bosses are hoping to keep the format the same as the original run, there will be one drastic difference as host Terry Nutkins died a few years ago.

Chris explained to The Sun newspaper: "Obviously, our co-host Terry Nutkins died a couple of years ago so it would be down to Michaela and I. But there's a huge adult population that remember the show with enormous fondness.

"Virtually every time I go out someone talks about it. They say: "We watched you on "The Really Wild Show" and now we watch you and Michaela on "Springwatch" with our kids", and it's sort of fulfilling a circle for them.

"We hopefully inspired them when they were kids and now we're helping to inspire their own kids. So, yeah, we have been thinking about bringing "The Really Wild Show" back, which could be quite good fun."
