Safari Live: Migration (Animal Planet) – Premieres 14th July
A live wildlife programme hosted by the South African cross between Richard O’Brian and Chris Packham. In it the show follows a selection of animals as they go about their business during the migration season through the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya, while being closely followed by an wildlife expert and camerman.
Like most live wildlife shows such as Autumnwatch and the like, not much really happens as they switch between the experts, but is held together by the earlier filmed footage and host answering questions fired in by the viewers.
The show is pretty slow going and something you wouldn’t go out of your way to watch, but the host with his eccentric demeanour and passion for the subject is the highlight of the programme.
