Silent Roar: Searching for the Snow Leopard

Veteran wildlife filmmakers Hugh Miles and Mitchell Kelly spent four years in the Himalayas, risking life and limb in one of the world's most brutal environments in and attempt to film one of the world's most elusive and beautiful creatures - the snow leopard.

It had never been done before. Their success came at a price, but in the end, their skill and determination paid off. They captured unprecedented footage of snow leopards mating, hunting, feeding, and in one fleeting glimpse, a mother leading her fluffy snow leopard cub.

The Himalayas are perhaps best known for the world’s tallest mountain: Mount Everest. But the Himalayas’ snowy slopes and green valleys are also home to some of the world’s hardiest people and some of the world’s rarest wildlife.

It is not an easy place to live, as this documentary vividly illustrates. At higher elevations, the thick snow pack can remain on the ground year-round and temperatures may never rise above freezing. At lower levels, even summers can be cold and harsh.

Narrated by James Fagan and presented by Hugh Miles
Co-produced by Thirteen/WNET and Grenada Wild at Bristol (2005).

The Vanishing Lions
As the largest predator in Africa, the lion should have nothing to fear. But the king of the savannah is facing an uncertain future.

While concentrating on the dwindling number of gorillas, elephants and rhinos, nobody suspected the biggest of the big cats was in trouble.
When the number of lions turned out to be less than 30,000 and not 100,000 as previously estimated, it was clear that the great lion had become vulnerable.

The lion, King of Beasts, Africa's top predator, is under attack from all sides. Increasing human populations, disease, trophy hunting, and conflicts with farmers and herders have all taken their toll, as well as the debilitating effects of inbreeding among surviving lions in the isolated pockets of habitat left to them.

Big Cat experts, including Jonathan Scott and Alayne Mathieson, researchers and advocates of all kinds are looking for solutions, hoping to protect wild African lions from becoming an endangered species and teaching humans to live alongside lions.
In a world where the lion is a magnificent beast to some and a killer pest to others, theirs is not an easy task.

Narrated by Peter Coyote
Co-produced by BBC and Thirteen/WNET (2006)..
