“Some of the best tiger footage ever filmed, much of it amazingly close, which shows the life cycle of one of the rare, majestic cats – this is one of the best-kept secrets in nature documentaries!”

Complete series: contains 6 episodes on 2 DVDs

Untamed Asia: Chronicles of the Lost Jungle is a vibrant and very colourful wildlife documentary series that provides a unique account of the rare animals living in the area previously covered by the 'Forest of Siam' in South East Asia.

It follows families of tigers, bears, elephants, hornbills and monkeys over a period of time, showing their development, family structure, feeding habits and survival strategies.

The series was filmed over a number of years by some of the best wildlife film makers, mainly on location in Thailand.
By using the best camera techniques available, including static, hidden cameras and special night equipment, Untamed Asia has managed to capture the shy and elusive creatures of South East Asia in amazing quality and unparalleled clarity.

The images are vivid, razor sharp and much of the footage has been shot at very close range. The incredible close-ups of tigers, butterflies, hornbills and monkeys are unprecedented.
The documentary is complemented by a grand, specially composed musical score.

Untamed Asia provides more than five hours of amazing footage of some of the rarest and most spectacular animals of South East Asia. No interviews with scientists, no CGI graphics, no re-enactments or unnecessary background info – just 5+ hours of animals in their natural habitats.

The highlights of the series include:

  • very close-up footage of a Tigress giving birth to cubs, then licking and suckling them
