ABOUT THE SHOW

From the executive producer of Planet Earth and Frozen Planet comes a stunning new series that explores the dramatic world of predation as never before. The contests between predators and prey are the most critical events in nature.

This series takes an intimate look at the remarkable strategies of hunters and, in some cases, the hunted, exploring the challenges animals face and the tactics they employ. Each episode focuses on one principal habitat, whether savannah, jungle or ocean.

Stories range from the desert lions that use the cloak of a sea mist to ambush oryx to killer whales who use teamwork and sonar to pinpoint prey in the open ocean, from the spider that alters its hunting strategy to match its prey to the octopus that walks across land to reach fish trapped in rock pools.

Confident and cinematic in style, The Hunt is a celebration of nature's most determined, specialised and cunning predators and their equally cunning and elusive prey. It combines the epic landscapes of Planet Earth with intimate, engaging behaviour.
