UK pubcaster Channel 4′s digital television channel More4 has commissioned STV Productions to make a documentary that follows actor, director and broadcaster Richard Wilson as he fulfils a lifelong goal to explore the highlands and islands of his native Scotland.

In Highland Odyssey with Richard Wilson (w/t), the actor returns to Scotland to explore the north of the country, and at the age of 80, the tour proves to be a  journey of discovery and personal reflection.

The one-off (1 x 60′) doc captures Scotland’s hidden treasures, as Wilson travels from Edinburgh to Mull.

“Richard is one of Britain’s most recognized actors with a successful career spanning several decades,” said Rick McAvoy, head of documentaries at STV Productions, in a statement. ” This documentary for More4 gives him the opportunity to explore a part of the world where he has always wanted to spend time, while giving the viewer an insight into the unique history and stunning scenery, all through the eyes of the iconic actor.”

Highland Odyssey with Richard Wilson was commissioned by Lizi Wootton, commissioning editor for features at Channel 4.
