Tribes, Animals & Me

Tuesdays 8.30pm

Show Synopsis

Gordon Buchanan has spent the last 25 years travelling the world filming predators and the scientists who study them. It’s given him one view of these spectacular animals. But there is another tribal understanding of these creatures.

Travelling to some of the most remote wildernesses on Earth, Gordon wants to earn the trust of people who get closer to animals than anyone else. These unique people have the potential to revolutionise our understanding of animals. But joining them is one of the most dangerous things Gordon will ever do.

About the show

In Africa’s brutal Kalahari Desert, Gordon joins the San Bushmen in order to gain a new understanding of his favourite big cat – the lion.

Gordon travels deep into the Amazon rainforest to join the Huorani Indians in search of the largest snake in the world – the giant green anaconda.

Finally, Gordon goes on a journey up the Sepik River to meet the crocodile tribes of Papua New Guinea. They believe that they have a unique connection with these animals and claim to be able to hunt crocodiles in the water with their bare hands.
