Fantastic documentary on the wildlife of the Indian subcontinent. This first episode gives an intro to the 6 episode series and then looks at tigers.

Brilliant Radhu what a great find. Just watched Episode 1 Part 1, it's really made my night. Not just my favourite Tigers, but Asiatic Lions with Cubs, Leopards, and a lovely shot of an Elephant with massive tusks, along with a multitude of wildlife. I could be up all night watching this
This is the link to Land Of The Tiger - Episode 1 part 2 each one is 91/2 mins long

Thanks Radhu - one to look forward to over the next few days.

Just watched Episode 1 part 1 - wow what a great clip, some beautiful animals as well as the tiger and it was lovely to see the eles swimming.

Definitely going to watch the other episodes later - and I think Pete and I are going to try and visit India/Bhutan next year with Jonathan so a great taster of things to come.

It certainly does Radhu. I decided to watch Episode 1 part 2 just now and it was lovely to see the tiger with her young cubs. I think by the end of today I will have watched all 6 parts as it is so wonderful to see the wildlife and the different landscapes.

I thought there was a lovely snapshot of Indian culture in Episode 1 Part two, and their reverence to animal wildlife, like the Guys enacting the monkeys. I thought their movement, and betrayal of them was brilliant, also they clearly revere the Elepant, as Radhu said in Stop killing them, there a lot of good people out there. Going to catch up on part two later

I Agree Lai it's brilliant. Just watched part three, I'm trying to ration myself . I could'nt belive the Jackals bitting the bottom of the Sloth Bear affraid , and I did'nt realise that only one in twenty Tiger hunts are successful.
Episode 1 Part 3

its true WS as u said Elephants are treated as God in our country,as we worship lord Ganesh...the very core of Santana Dharma highlight the fact that there is god in every living thing...as we are taught to respect that very God :)

but definitely like the two sides of coin there are also people who care little for animals...for some it is due of sheer ignorance and for some it is to fulfill their personal greed...

for this very reason poaching remain a constant threat to the wild life in india Sad

hope mankind will be soon enlightened to respect all living beings in nature,love and care for them :)

The whole 5 episodes are brilliant, and I agree WS, the sloth bear having its bum bitten by the jackal was amazing!

Thanks for the link radhu, I have watched some of Valmik documentaries before and they are always well worth a watch. I will catch up with this one and the other ones later.......probably over the weekend, it will be much better than the TV

Thanks Radhu. This is a great clip, i've definitely seen it before but it is wonderful and i've enjoyed watching it again just now. Ranthambore is such a stunning NP and a beautiful home for tigers.

I really enjoyed that, thanks.

Thanks Radhu thats a really great clip. A shame she's struggling now, but she's an old Girl now, and has done really well to survive to the age she has

Post  radhu on Sun Aug 19, 2012 11:11 am

yes at 17 years shes an old fellow now

but she is someone who made history , no tiger has even held on to their territory for more than 8 years and she was Rathambore's queen for over a decade,which is indeed a remarkable achievement!

she have killed a full grown crocodile to protect her cubs :) adding another feather in her cap :)

she is not allowed a natural death because no1 have the heart to let the queen of rathambore die that way,so they supplement her meals :)

i have seen her toothless pic , shes still beautiful i was searching for it to attach here,but couldn't find it now Sad

i hope she survives a few more years :) hats off to the brave mother and Queen of Rathambore

I hd seen that before Radhu but I so enjoyed watching that clip and will see if there are others to watch. Machli is such a special Tigress isn't she and I hope she lives on longer too. I know it isn't the norm to supplement food but you can understand why they are doing it.
Fantastic pic of her now and i'm really glad you managed to find it. Thanks so much for the clip and the picture Radhu cheers
