Animals with Cameras

What if animals could tell their own stories? Animals spend so much time in places where human camera operators can't go, filming wildlife is often impossible. But that's going to change in this groundbreaking series, where the cameras are given to the animals.

Presenter and wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan deploys specially developed on-board cameras to answer vital questions about their secret lives. How do young chimps learn to avoid deadly snakes high in the jungle canopy? How do cheetahs manage to hunt in tangled woodlands in Namibia? Who tends baby meerkats deep in their underground burrows, when mum is out foraging?

Gordon will works closely with scientists for whom on-board cameras are a vital new research tool, helping them better understand and protect animals. The delightful new perspective these cameras allow will take us deeper into the lives of some of our favorite animals than ever before.
