Predators Up Close with Joel Lambert

Ever wondered what it's like to come face to face with the planet's most dangerous predators? Brand new to Discovery in November, this series follows former Navy SEAL Joel Lambert and his team of experts as they do just that.

In a bid to analyse their sophisticated hunting behaviour, Lambert travels with a team of researchers from the four corners of the world to study the most powerful predators known to mankind. The project takes the team from the plains of Zambia and the frozen ice floes of Norway, to the treacherous waters off the coast of South Africa.

Using a specially-built, transparent pod made from the strongest jet glass, Lambert and his team spend 24 hours living among the animals. Their state-of-the-art laboratory contains an array of scientific equipment allowing them to come face-to-face with lions, hyenas, polar bears and sharks, to record and measure their fascinating behaviour, senses and skills, as well as Lambert's reaction to being the hunted, rather than the hunter.
