Product description

Product Description

Box set containing four episodes of the wildlife programme narrated by David Attenborough, which uses state-of-the-art technology and camera techniques to gain an insight into the lives and habits of the world's most fascinating creatures. 'Tiger' is a study of the swift, powerful but elusive creature, including footage of the more trusting specimens who have grown up as part of Project Tiger in Madhya Pradesh. 'Leopard' offers a unique insight into the mainly nocturnal activities of the most camera shy of African cats, following two specimens along Zambia's Luangwa Valley. 'Eagle' is a study of the most famous bird of prey, looking at around sixty different types of eagle and their different methods of hunting and survival. 'Serpent' focuses on snakes: one of the most successful species on the planet - and also one of the least documented. The documentary uses pioneering techniques including miniature cameras attached to snakes' heads, high-speed photography, X-ray imaging and computer graphics to capture the world from the serpent's perspective.

Synopsis

All four programmes from the BBC Wildlife Specials series. Each film is a masterpiece of expertise and innovation: award-winning cameramen using revolutionary filming techniques, backed by the latest scientific research, and each features one of natures's superstars, revealing aspects of its life that have never been seen before.

Dangerous, powerful, but above all breath-takingly beautiful, tigers have for centuries sparked awe and admiration. Yet it is their very uniqueness that has made them a prized object for hunters. This film could be the last complete portrait of tigers in the wild as there is a real chance they could be extinct within the next decade.

The leopard is the least-known of all Africa's big cats. Until now, the leopard, and animal of the night, has been virtually impossible to observe. Using state-of-the-art camera equipment this film ventures into the night and follows the lives of two leopards in Zambia's Luangwa Valley, to reveal the night-time secrets of the cat that walks on its own.

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. Remarkable aerial photography captures the dramatic life of eagles as never seen before.

One of the most successful species on earth is also one of the least documented. Miniaturised camers reveal the world of snakes for the first time from their point of view. Head-mounted cameras capture gripping images of the world's most dangerous snakes hunting and overcoming their prey. Using high-speed photography, x-ray imaging and state-of-the-art computer graphics, this is the most ambitious look at snakes attempted on television.
