Product Description

Product Description

The complete first and second series of the wildlife documentary series, following the fortunes of groups of lions, leopards, and cheetahs over a two-year period in the Kenyan Masi Mari reserve. In series one, Simba is the only male lion in a 30-strong pride, who has to fight two rival males for control, while Kike the cheetah must look after her new litter of cubs. In series two, Kike's family have all ventured out of their own, Bella the leopard prepares her cub Chui for life on his own, and the two lions Cheza and Sala get up to all sorts of mischief. Presented by Jonathan Scott, Simon King, and Saba Douglas-Hamilton.

Synopsis

From a camp in the heart of Kenya’s magnificent Masa Mara comes the thrilling Big Cat Week, a unique glimpse of Africa’s majestic big cats in their natural habitat.
Series One follows lone male Simba, as he strives to defend the Marsh Pride of lions from two young outsider males who threaten them. Other storylines include Kike the cheetah’s struggle to feed her babies and protect them from danger, and Bella the leopard’s ambush on a herd of wildebeest crossing the river. Series Two re-visits Kike and Bella.

The release of this has obviously been timed to coincide with the end of the latest Big Cat week, or if you prefer Big Cat 3. This is a daily drama well worth investing your time in and it's a great shame it's only on our small screens once a year.

For anyone unfamiliar with the concept of Big Cat week three presenters follow three sets of big cats around for a week and see what happens. It's that simple, but some of the drama that unfolds is mesmerising and buttock clenchingly tense. Before the end of the first episode you are hooked into caring what happens to these animals and worry almost as much as the presenters, who let me, tell you worry a hell of a lot, every time something seems to be amiss.

We follow the pride of lions dubbed the marsh pride because they live near a marsh handily enough with Simon King who is probably the most dispassionate of the presenters. Saba Douglas Hamilton (driving her Big Cat jeep in bare feet) is attached to a leopard called Bella and her cub Chui while Jonathan Scott tracks the cheetahs. Hamilton is passionate and articulate but rarely gets overly emotional which is more than you can say about Scott who spends every episode getting in a right tizzy about something and is weirdly camp with it. The cheetahs though are the most at risk of the three groups so in a way it's understandable.

Series one has Scott following Kike trying to raise her litter of cubs , something she has never managed successfully before and for series two he follows up to see how she is getting on. King after following the marsh pride for the first series turns his attention to a couple of lions - Chezah and Sala- for the second while Hamilton stays with Bella for both.

I bought this DVD having watched the 2006 Big Cat Week on TV. This is a fantastic DVD with great camera work and the stories are really well told. It brings back great memories of my safari in the Masai Mara, where we were lucky enough to see Kike sitting on a truck and it makes me want to go back there again as soon as possible!

Great DVD, well worth the money!

Big Cat Week is a brilliant show, and these two series are no exception. You really go in depth into the cat's lives, and experience the ups and downs of what they go through each and every day to survive. You simply become so attached to the cats that the constant action will have you on the edge of your seat all of the way through the series. A definite must!

Hello Everyone,
I just wanted to suggest this DVD series for any wildlife lover of any kind. I live in the Unites States of America, and unfortunately we over here don't have the opportunity to buy these DVDs in America. Our local DVD retailers don't even know what the show is when I ask them, and they are only available on the European Region DVD players (which an American must have to play these DVDs). I took my search across the Atlantic to Britain and found them here on Amazon. These DVDs are just fantastic for those of us that can't afford to go to Africa at the moment. The narrators, are just great. One can tell that they really enjoy being in the Masai Mara and it just makes for a great viewing experience. I honestly would prefer watching this some nights over regular movies. The reason being is because the viewer gets to know the different cat's on a personal level because they follow the same group around on a daily basis. By the end of the show you will find yourself aligning yourself with the different cats. These truly are amazing and the best $14USD I have spent in a while!!

Blessings to all of my British Friends across the Atlantic

We bought this for our 8 year old son who is a big cheetah fan. This is by far his favourite wildlife DVD (and he has many). What makes it so different is how you get to follow different characters and become completely fasciated by them - a big hit with our son but also with his parents, I'm not crazy about wildlife movies but you just cannot stop watching this one. You just have to find out what happens to the lion, cheetah and leopard you are following - and meanwhile you learn a lot about these beautiful cats. The presenters are fantastic.
Great entertainment for the entire family!

Leopard cubs, cheetah cubs, lion cubs, wow... I love this show. Fantastic footage.

Unfortunately, they keep talking about cubs dying of hunger or being killed by adult males or by hyenas. It could be a bit disturbing for little children, so be careful.

English subtitles are available.
