DAVID AT­TEN­BOR­OUGH’S LI­ONS: SPY IN THE DEN

TDT, 6pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

DAVID At­ten­bor­ough’s lat­est wildlife doc­u­men­tary Li­ons: Spy in the Den’s big­gest sell­ing point is its “boul­der­cam”, a re­mote con­trolled mini- cam­era hid­den in a mo­bile rock. This gives view­ers an un­prece­dented look into the lives of adult li­ons and their cubs, which were filmed for more than 3000 hours, in East Africa. Film­ing starts when one set of cubs is six weeks old and tracks them through to the time they be­come pro­fi­cient hunters. There are runins with a hippo and a band of mon­gooses. The footage is sim­ply stun­ning.
