“This beautiful and remarkable film gives a unique flavour of one of the most precious animals and forests left on earth”

Wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan heads to Eastern Russia on his most challenging trip to date, as he goes in search of Amba, the Russian tiger.

Gordon's spectacular journey in snowbound Eastern Russia starts in the most unlikely setting: Vladivostok, a naval outpost, a city that was closed to foreigners until the collapse of the Soviet Union. It's so cold the sea has frozen over, with no sign of any wildlife.

Gordon's journey will only get colder. He heads north for the beautiful and unknown area of Ussuriland, which has the largest unbroken area of forest with the single largest population of tigers anywhere in the world.

This incredible film tells Gordon's story as he sets out to find and film the tiger of the Russian Far East. He will be travelling in the footsteps of the first explorers, living in basic huts, trekking through forests and learning to survive in this harsh environment.

Gordon has the help of Anatoly Petrov, who has spent much time in these forests and is one of the few people who has seen a wild tiger. First they will explore the forest close to Anatoly's home before they set off on a long journey to 3 separate forest locations - even meeting one man who just last year saw five tigers in a single day.

Although containing relatively little tiger footage, this is a beautifully filmed account of this magnificent creature and its habitats. Amba the Russian Tiger has won multiple awards during 2009.

Filmed and presented by Gordon Buchanan
Produced by Mike Birkhead Associates for Animal Planet International (2008).
