Visually stunning footage of the world's greatest predators
on 17 August 2001
This is a superb piece of natural history film making, even by the BBC natural history unit's high standards. The series focuses on the great predators of the animal world and how they catch their prey- but it's not all blood and guts, the focus is on how predators have evolved sophisticated adaptations to "outwit" their prey. Innovative film-making techniques make the series visually stunning as well as informative. At one point viewers are taken aboard a golden eagle as it hunts for mountain hares: the eagle's reaction times are beyond belief! A must for anyone with an interest in natural history.
