  1. The Last Lions (2011)

    Fifty years ago there were close to half-a-million lions in Africa. Today there are around 20,000. To make matters worse, lions, unlike elephants, which are far more numerous, have virtually no protection under government mandate or through international accords. 

    A story of a lioness and her cubs narrated by Jeremy Irons. WOW! touching and gripping at the same time. National Geographic delivers the goods once again.

    Wonder, pity, and awe are the general emotions poked at by this amazing story. A visual treat done by husband and wife team Dereck and Beverly Joubert. Those shots were great! how did they get so near those climactic scenes?!?

    And the “characters” - like out of the Lion King cartoon! A scarred buffalo, the silver eye lioness and her troupe. Spectacular storytelling skills. The violence of/in nature never fails to amaze.

    Fun to watch and an eye opener for those who do not know the current situation of the Earths animal population. Life… the tragedy and triumph.
