Documentary about the mountain snow leopards of Pakistan. Two years in the making, it contains the most detailed footage ever to be taken of this elusive cat.
Northern Pakistan is the setting for this heartwarming tale of one man's quest to find and film the snow leopard. In 2004, a team from the Planet Earth series came to these remote mountains near the Afghan border and filmed the first ever intimate images of a wild snow leopard. For Nisar Malik, the Pakistani journalist who led the expedition, this shoot marked a turning point in his life: the images were not enough, he felt compelled to return and really get to know this creature of legend. Together with cameraman Mark Smith, he spent two years documenting the snow leopard's daily life, finally lifting the veil on the most elusive of all cats.
