“A poignant tale of survival against the odds for one of the world's most endangered and fascinating creatures”

A multi award-winning true-life wildlife drama based on the life of Newky, a remarkable African wild dog, whose exceptional life was scientifically documented over a period of five years by wild dog researcher Dr J Weldon “Tico” McNutt.

Now, this emotive BBC natural history film brings Newky’s story back to life, in a faithful and detailed recreation of his experiences. Through Tico’s personal recollections, we follow the dramatic account of Newky’s life, in a moving, true story that is both heartbreaking and important to understanding the challenges wild dogs face as a species.

Set against the spectacular Santawani wilderness of Botswana’s Okavango delta, A Wild Dog’s Story follows Newky’s life from the dangers and joys of puppy-hood, through the loss of his siblings in tense encounters with lions, and into the trials of adulthood.

The Santawani pack is large and very successful – almost every hunt ends in a kill. The complex social structures within the pack are explored through lots of very close-up camera work, showing the puppies, a lion ambush, hunting scenes and various heart rending and dramatic scenes.

This is a tale of struggle, endurance and triumph, and of one dog’s extraordinary spirit to win through against almost impossible odds. Above all, it is an emotionally powerful, true story in which, through Newky’s remarkable life, we learn of the challenges facing one of the world’s most endangered and fascinating social mammals.

Narrated by Paul Phear.
Produced by Tania “TJ” Jenkins and Mike Holding.
An AfriScreen Films production for the BBC.
