Natural World, 2009-2010 Episode 10 of 14

Duration: 59 minutes

Jonathan Scott narrates the extraordinary story of the leopard - the one big cat that still survives across half the world while tigers, cheetahs and lions are all struggling.

By following the lives of leopard mothers and their cubs in East Africa, the film investigates what it is about the natural history of these cats that makes them born survivors.

Perhaps the most extraordinary revelation is that leopards are living undercover on farms and even in cities across Africa and Asia.
