The Hunt

The Hunt (Hardback, Media tie-in)

By Fothergill, Alastair
By Cordey, Huw
Foreword by Attenborough, David

With over 240 breathtaking photographs and footage from the landmark BBC series, The Hunt captures the dramatic encounters of predator and prey in an entirely new light. Featuring the extraordinary strategies of a huge range of predators, from cheetahs and African wild dogs to ki...ller whales and polar bears, these images and stories will revolutionise what you thought you knew about life in the wild. Featured are the strategies of a huge range of predators, each fine-tuned to its environment, whether the frozen Arctic, the baking desert, the ever-changing extremes of a tidal zone or the pressurised depths of the ocean. Some are built to outrun their prey, with sheer speed or with stamina. Some stalk with a sophistication of planning and game-play that reveals great intelligence. Others opt for subterfuge, investing in complex traps or irresistible lures. The final chapter of the book goes behind the scenes to recount the adventures of the production teams as they themselves stalk their quarry - and are sometimes stalked - revealing how the key sequences were filmed. Illustrations include stills from the latest 4K, high-speed and time-lapse video, depicting never-before-photographed behaviour. From the producers of Frozen Planet and Planet Earth, The Hunt is a dramatic look at the strategy and ingenuity of the animal kingdom in its most crucial moments.
