The Hunt: The Hardest Challenge
The highly acclaimed BBC series “The Hunt” approaches predation as never before, taking an intimate look at the remarkable strategies employed by hunters to catch their prey and the hunted to escape. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, the new series comes from multi-Emmy®-winning executive producer Alastair Fothergill (The Blue Planet, Frozen Planet) and series producer Huw Cordey (South Pacific, Frozen Planet) — the makers of the landmark series Planet Earth.

In this, episode 1: The Hardest Challenge, the extraordinary range of techniques predators use to catch their prey is revealed - from a leopard using all its powers of stealth to stalk impala in broad daylight to wild dogs, whose tactic is to wear down their prey over long distances; from Nile crocodiles, the planet's most patient predators, to killer whales who use teamwork and intelligence to take on humpback whales. But even with these finely tuned strategies, the outcome is far from certain. Who will come out on top, the predator or the prey?

A production by Silverback Films, co-produced with the BBC, BBC Worldwide, BBC America, The Open University, CCTV9 & NDR Naturfilm
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Series Award, Script Award, Panasonic Cinematography Award (large crew), Editing Award, Music Award, Films at 59 Sound Award
