Take ambition, intrigue, passion, backstabbing, dastardly deeds and greed on a massive scale, add laughs, set it in the world of competitive bird watching and you have The Big Year.

Audience faves Black, Martin and Wilson embark on the yearlong competition to score the most species sightings, in a strangely fascinating, insightful and funny road trip and gets added credit for having the guts regarding the whole bird watching thing.
