King of the Taiga
Life has changed for Siberian or Amur tigers. Until recently
on the very edge of extinction, now protected at the highest levels, they are flourishing. But that brings its own problems. Older tigers don't give up their territories to young interlopers, forcing them to move into human settlements. As a result, the man-eating tiger is now truly
living up to its name. There is no better moment to capture the behavior of this majestic animal - four meters from nose to tail. In spite of its growing numbers, its stealthy hunting style makes it almost impossible to spot in the forest undergrowth, so high technology and the full cooperation of Russia's top trackers and tiger conservationists will be engaged in the production.
