The Cheetah Orphans

Veteran wildlife filmmaker Simon King takes on a new role in The Cheetah Orphans -- that of surrogate mother. After their cheetah mother is killed by a lion, Simon assumes the parenting responsibilities for the cubs, Toki and Sambu -- a life changing experience that Simon describes as "privileged, humbling and enriching."

Sharkland

The waters off the tip of Southern Africa are a haven for sharks. Roughly 140 different species inhabit the cold waters along the western coast of the continent and the temperate seas along the east--huge, but harmless whale sharks, and predators like the fearsome Great White, 15-foot-long tiger sharks, swift short fin makos, and the sand tiger shark, one of a surprisingly large number of cannibalistic members of the animal kingdom, in which sibling rivalry reaches murderous extremes.
