Our Wild Adventures – 11 July 2021 – 11/7/2021 – Sunday – BBC Two

Land of the Tiger
Series 1 Episode 8 of 8

BBC wildlife presenters look back at their adventures across India, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

Liz Bonnin remembers a remarkable morning migration by thousands of cranes to the small village of Khichan in Rajasthan. Colin Stafford-Johnson recounts his time filming tigers in India and forming a special relationship with the boisterous cub Brokentail.

Chris Packham looks back on a tiger-spotting trip to Bangladesh, which lead to ‘one of the worst views of an animal he’d ever had, and yet somehow the best!’ Liz Bonnin shares a memorable encounter in the Western Ghats, where she visited the locals trying to preserve the rare lion-tailed macaque.

Finally, Steve Backshall and Gordon Buchanan recall an expedition looking for tigers in the mountains of Bhutan. Although they saw a great many animals, including a red fox, a lammergeier, bears and even a snow leopard, there was no trace of a tiger population – until, after a gruelling trek, Gordon made a sudden and dramatic discovery.
