8:00 – Big Cat Challenge
Lions, cheetahs and leopards: each cat has developed its own hunting strategies, family upbringing and survival techniques. In this fast-moving one-hour special, we examine their behaviour and competitive interaction with each other to discover which is the ultimate hunter.
8:55 – Sharks: Scavengers Of The Seas
Before being an earthly paradise with enchanting colours, the lagoon of New-Caledonia is above all a paradise for sharks. Usually considered as fierce predators, sharks really are opportunistic scavengers. Scavengers that are not too picky when it comes to their menu: feathers, fins or fur, anything will do.
8:00 – Dolphins Of The Shadowland
It’s almost impossible to study dolphins for extended periods of time in the open ocean. For this reason a pod of sixty bottlenose dolphins resident in New Zealand’s Doubtful Sound provides a unique opportunity for scientists to improve our knowledge of these mysterious, appealing mammals.
9:00 – Lost Whales
For 150 years, southern right whales were hunted to the brink of extinction, but the discovery of a pod in the Southern Ocean has sparked fresh hope that their numbers are increasing. Intimate underwater footage unveils the behavior of these gentle giants and gives scientists a chance to predict and protect their future recovery.
8:00 – Penguin Invasion
When penguins takeover a popular South African beach resort, laughter, fun and conflict are the result.
9:00 – Peculiar Primate: Tarsier
