About The Hunt Series
This series will deconstruct the world of predation as never before, taking an intimate and detailed look at the remarkable strategies employed by hunters to catch their prey and the hunted to escape. Using groundbreaking photographic techniques and drama-like storytelling, the series will travel the world in search of the world’s top predators: from hunting dogs’s endless chases over the open plains to polar bears stalking seals out on breaking ice: from portia, nature’s smartest spider, that alters its hunting strategy depending on what prey it’s targeting, to the abdopus octopus, which, at low tide, walks across the ground to reach fish trapped in rock pools; from killer whales running down humpbacked whales in crystal clear tropical waters to the first ever images of blue whales feeding.
The strategies of both predators and prey are shaped by where they live so each episode will play out in one principal habitat, whether savannah, jungle or ocean.
Episode 1 - The Hardest Challenge reveals the extraordinary range of strategies used by both predators and prey.
Episode 2 - In the Grip of the Seasons : Arctic
How predators in the Arctic meet the challenges of the most seasonal place on Earth.
Episode 3 - Hide and Seek: Forests
Hide and Seek examines the huge challenges faced by predators that hunt within the forest.
Episode 4 - Hunger at Sea: Oceans
How hunters find and catch their prey in the open ocean, a vast watery desert where food is incredibly scarce.
Episode 5 - Nowhere to Hide: Plains
For predators in deserts and grasslands there is Nowhere to Hide. Here, they must make their own opportunities.
Episode 6 - Race Against Time: Coasts
The coast can be a rich hunting ground, but opportunities never last long so hunters are always in a race against time.

Ratings and Reviews
So fascinating that time disappears
The astonishing videos, the sensitive narration and the beautiful background orchestral accompaniment draw the viewer into a mesmerizing experience that is so gripping that time disappears and the viewer is totally absorbed in the drama of the life and death events chronicled in this series. The photography constantly amazes: cameras perfectly positioned to capture the movement of each subject, whether it be a hawk high in the air or a crocodile waiting patiently under the water. Or an insect on a branch in a jungle or rainforest. No matter what happens in each video the overwhelming effect is to induce wonder at the beauty and variety of nature's creatures. And there are plenty of laughs as well, when a creature's plans don't turn out the way they were supposed to! A splendid program indeed!! Highly recommended.
