The World About Us (1967 - 1987): Twilight of the Tiger  (1972)

The drastic decline in the number of wild tigers at large in the Indian sub-continent reflects the general disappearance of a great deal of wild life there.

Philip Wayre has travelled widely in India and Bhutan to film some of the remaining creatures of the vanishing forests and to observe some of the valiant efforts being made to conserve them in the face of a desperate struggle for living space.
