Eagle: Few birds have captured the human imagination as deeply as the eagle. Throughout the centuries, this majestic bird of prey has been the symbol of strength and courage, such is the perfection of its design. There are 60 different kinds of eagle throughout the world--each type having adapted spectacularly to hunting different forms of prey. In this film, remarkable aerial photography captures the dramatic life of eagles as never seen before ...
Serpent: This film takes an intimate look at how snakes live and thrive.
Leopard: Leopards are the supreme masters of stealth and camouflage. Secretive and elusive, they're also the least known of all Africa's big cats. Rarely active in the daytime, they're creatures of the night and this has made them impossible to observe by film-makers or scientists - until now. This programme follows a scientist in Namibia as he works with bushmen to unravel the leopard's secrets. And state-of-the-art video equipment is used in Zambia's South Luangwa Valley to obtain unique images of the leopard's night-time world.
Tiger: The tiger is heart-stoppingly impressive--the embodiment of grace, power and danger--but filming them has, traditionally, been hampered by the elusive lifestyle they have been forced to adopt. But after 25 years of the Project Tiger scheme operating in the Madhya Pradesh, these magnificent animals have become more trusting; permitting this extraordinarily intimate film which follows them from sunrise to sunset, in monsoon rains and in shimmering heat.
