Saturday 24/ 7 WILD: A MEERKAT’S TALE
SBS ONE, 7.30pm
Meerkats love running about and popping their head up now and again to watch what is going on. But we humans are so fascinated by their behaviour that we spend many hours filming them for shows such as this fascinating animal doco. Tonight, we meet Swift, a five- week- old meerkat who was born in one of the harshest places on Earth, the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa. A drought has hit the region, food is scarce and Swift’s family is hungry. The family members’ desperation will lead them into danger – across busy roads and into the hostile territories of rival meerkats. Worse still, predators are on the hunt from above and below and meerkats are a target.
