Predators captures for the first time the moment where life hangs in the balance, the split second that the human eye would never normally see. Using on-board miniaturised cameras, action replay and computer animation, tactics are analysed from every angle to reveal the awesome strength and determination of a predator and the matching skill of the prey. This is not a story of blood and guts - it is the behind-the-scenes drama of a gripping battle of wits that decides which animals get a meal or which escape becoming one. Predators is a new breed of natural history television. Animals are built for the critical moments in life when predator and prey clash, and like the goals in a football match these events happen so fast that to analyse them they need to be deconstructed and reconstructed to sense the acute action and drama. Only then does it emerge that a sprinting cheetah actually spends 50% of the time with all its feet off the ground, a diving gannet hits the water at 60mph and giant hornets can kill 30,000 bees in just three hours.
