Preview | The Story of Cats | Asia to Africa - About

Airs Wednesday, October 7, 2020, at 8 p.m. on PBS (check local listings).

In the first episode of The Story of Cats, we discover how the first cats arose in the forests of Asia, how they spread across the continent, and later came to conquer Africa. We reveal how they evolved flexible limbs to climb, giant bodies to survive in the cold, and super senses to catch prey. Ultimately we discover how becoming social made the lion, king of the savannah.
