Hi! I caught the second half of a program (not sure of the exact title of the documentary) - but, it has recent footage from when the Savute channel has started to flow again. The end credits mention Wilderness Safaris ....... So, I'm guessing it has footage from their concession. The bits and pieces I saw were fairly interesting - dogs and puppies, Lion Pride, Hyenas and Jackals .... all trying to cross the water etc etc.,

Anyone else see this? Pity I didn't catch it from the start.

The TV Guide listing calls the programme, "Predator Battlegrounds".

Look out for it - some decent footage there. Atleast, the half I saw.

Hi Tom,

The few bits and pieces I saw was pretty interesting with some unique footage. They also had a clip of dogs trying to chase a buffalo herd and the buffalo ran straight into Lions (not too sure, but, could well be the Selinda pride).

For UK viewers this will be on Nat Geo Wild Wednesday evening (12th) - 10pm I think. Also repeated 01.00am and 10.00 am Thursday morning (13th).

Thanks for the 'heads up' on this programme Hari.
