Who is the Win the Wilderness: Alaska narrator? He's also a star of Watership Down!

A brand new competition series kicked off on BBC Two on Sunday, January 26th which sees couples team up to win a rather odd grand prize.

Rather than a huge cash prize or some kind of career-boosting opportunity, this prize is a grand house in the middle-of-nowhere Alaska. Over a series of trials, the current owners – and creators – of the house will suss out who really has what it takes to live in the wilderness.

But who is the rather familiar narrator of the BBC series? He’s been a voice actor in plenty of shows before!

Nicholas Tennant’s voice acting

As well as adverts and narration jobs, some of Nicholas’ most significant work to date has been voice acting.

Most recently, Nicholas starred in the 2018 adaptation of the classic novel, Watership Down.

This BBC adaptation brought in a cast of A-listers such as James McAvoy, Olivia Colman, Nicholas Hoult, John Boyega, Ben Kinglsey and Peter Capaldi.

That’s quite the company Nicholas Tennant was with!
