Lion Kingdom (Nat Geo Wild) – Premieres 4th August
Wildlife documentary that follows three pride of lions as they go about their business during the dry season in the Ruaha National Park. As it splits the story between the prides it shows the lions as the hunt prey and fight each other over one part of territory.
The show is similar to Savage Kingdom with the use of narration over dramatising what’s happening. Though unlike Savage Kingdom this has some sense of pacing to it all, and doesn’t rely on a multitude of slo-mo shots to pad out the run time. As a wildlife documentary it’s on a par with Natures Great Race.
