Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


The big cats of the Masaai Mara wildlife community as never seen before. Specialist wildlife presenters target individual families: a pride of lions, a cheetah mother and her cubs, and the elusive leopard. A very personal relationship develops between the humans and animals as the filmmaker records the daily routines and the ups and downs during six weeks in the life of their subject. The update is filmed six months later and catches up with the animals we have grown to know and love. Have they survived?

Awesome Cats

I love this program. Please, bring on the rest of the seasons.

Big Cat Diary Series 1

The series is awesome and the filming amazing. But beware, episode 6 is a truncated file. The file is cut off at 7 minutes. Don't buy the season, as you will waste a $1 instead of saving $1.


The entire series was great. It was suspenseful, and kept me at the edge of my seat as I waited to hear what happened to the lion cubs, or to the cheetah cub Toto. It is sad to hear that Honey and Red, the marsh pride's dominate female, died. Red was murdered by herdsman who had illegally moved to the reserve, while Honey died by a fatal accident in which the vet tried to save her from.

All in all, it was a great series. I wish it still aired in the US, but I can understand why they didn't continue it. At least we can still read the news on Jackson's blog, which gives you detailed information about each big cat in the series.
