DESCRIPTION: (from BBC America's press release, October 2013) Across the globe, predators face unique challenges wherever they live, and these different challenges drive the narrative of each episode. Using character driven stories, the series will reveal the clever and complex strategies predators use to catch their prey, showing us how these are some of the hardest working animals in the natural world. It takes a new look at the state of our environment through the eyes of some of the planet's top predators: polar bears have been filmed hunting bearded seals for the very first time using a fascinating aquatic stalking technique; golden eagles and wolves working together to capture mountain lambs high in the Rocky mountains; and a totally breathtaking hunt where a pack of killer whales finally run down a humpbacked whale calf after a two hour chase.
