David Attenborough

¤  The Tree of Life  ↓

Sir David Attenborough gives credit to Darwin & Mendel, and comments on evolution and DNA from a modern perspective…

Some people in the States, so-called ‘creationists’, wouldn’t share David’s views on evolution.

◊  Naturalist Sir David Attenborough explains why he believes wildlife documentaries have become so popular. He adds that new technology allows him greater access to his subjects, be they plant or animal. (Originally aired Octobetr 1995) ↓

•→ Tiger: Spy in the Jungle

David Attenborough narrates the lives of four growing tiger cubs using footage collected by hidden-camera-carrying elephants. Over two years, the elephants help capture the most intimate portrayal of tigers ever filmed. As they grow, the cubs move from their mother’s milk onto meat. Fortunately, the tigress is a skilled hunter.

Charger, their imposing father, keeps his distance but helps to protect his vulnerable offspring from rogue male tigers and leopards.

The half-grown cubs are learning the hunting and fighting skills they will need as adults. The cameras also give an insight into the worlds of other animals, with leopards presenting a real threat to the growing cubs and deer making good hunting practice.

The tigers head to a water hole to cool off on a steaming hot day and the spy-cams show that the jungle pools are a magnet for a whole array of forest animals, including wild boars and sloth bears. But disaster strikes when both the cubs’ parents are injured and a rogue male puts in an appearance.

Their biggest challenge is learning to hunt for themselves, but their mother soon loses patience. Many new animal stars make their appearance, including an irresistible jackal family that has to cope when the tiger family invades their backyard, and a flock of peacocks that tease the tigers by playing a game of dare.

•→ Lions: Spy in the Den ⇐ (2000)  BBC Wildlife Specials

Introducing ‘Bouldercam’ – a revolutionary remote camera device that boldly goes where no camera has gone before – right into the heart of a lion pride. Looking deceptively like a mobile rock, but carrying a hidden digital camera, ‘Bouldercam’ gets up close and personal as it unravels the story of how cubs learn to become adult lions. Bouldercam was often just a whisker away as the cubs were watched, for over 3000 hours, growing up and learning to be lions. As David Attenborough says ‘This is no ordinary film about lions.’
