It's true that elephants are naturals, especially the babies. Everyone loves elephants... except of course those unspeakable killers and butchers, the ivory poachers, and people living and farming along the seasonal routes taken by the family herds or the bands of young males. Ian Douglas Hamilton and his daughter Saba are devoted to them, and so are the other members of the Samburu team, of whom we see a lot. The narrative of the three episodes is roughly chronological, but we are shown a fair selection of the problems the team encounters, including real emergencies where there is a real threat to elephant life. They also go to considerable lengths to find solutions to the problems that are inevitable when the elephants leave the reserve.
The film is well shot, and the narration does not jar, though it is a little flat andf slightly po-faced at times. I thought it was a pity that the section on mating balked at showing the final act, the copulation, which is one of the funniest sights in the animal world - unless you're an elephant, of course; but that is a very minor quibble. By wife and I were both sad when it ended, and we'll watch it again. Heartily recommended!
