Big Cat Diary: Episode 1
In the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Park, wildlife filmmakers Simon King and Jonathon Scott explore the daily lives of the region's big cat population. Introducing the Marsh lion pride, Half-Tail the leopard and Fundi the cheetah, this production was the first ever episode in the BBC's long-running series of Big Cat Diary.
An in-depth and sometimes emotional account of the life and times of this vast park, the series proved hugely popular with the public, with each season looking at new families and revisiting old regulars.
Through the world-famous cinematography of the BBC's Natural History Unit the drama, beauty and mystique of these engaging animal families is brought to life. Fundi's hyperactive cubs play-fight noisily, the Marsh family relax in the long grass and Half-Tail quietly stalks the area's numerous impalas.
Capturing both the beauty and harsh reality of life in the Masai Mara, Big Cat Diary provides an absorbing insight into these magnificent felines and their struggle to survive and raise families in a bountiful yet highly competitive environment.
