Wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan and animal behaviorists join forces to explore stories of animal lives "told" by the animals themselves. The series explores the secret side of the animal kingdom where human cameramen can't go, and camera-wearing animals film their own stories. Sprint across the savannah with a cheetah, plunge into the ocean with a seal, and swing through the trees with a chimp!
Nature: Animals With Cameras Get a front row seat for an extraordinary experience. Wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan (Snowbound: Animals of Winter) and a team of pioneering animal behaviorists join forces to explore stories of animal lives "told" by the animals themselves. A NATURE miniseries Animals with Cameras showcases a side of the animal kingdom where human cameramen can't go, when animals become the cinematographers. Using the specially-designed cameras, sprint across the savannah with a cheetah, plunge into the ocean with a seal, and swing through the trees with a chimpanzee. We will be privy to their secret lives like never before and uncover some truly unprecedented behavior through their eyes. Each episode features three different species. The series visits eight countries and features three different species per episode.
Episode 1: The astonishing collar-camera footage reveals newborn Kalahari Meerkats below ground for the first time, unveils the hunting skills of Magellanic penguins in Argentina, and follows the treetop progress of an orphaned chimp in Cameroon.
Episode 2: The cameras capture young cheetahs learning to hunt in Namibia, reveal how fur seals of an Australian island evade the Great white sharks offshore, and help solve a conflict between South African farmers and Chacma baboons.
Episode 3: We deep-dive with Chilean devil rays in the Azores, track Brown bears' diet in Turkey, and follow dogs protecting flocks of sheep from gray wolves in Southern France.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
