VISIT THE WILDS OF AFRICA AND THAILAND WITH THREE NEW NATURE DOCUMENTARIES ON PBS

Friday, September 7th, 2018

PBS America is taking viewers to the great plains of Africa and the forests of Thailand this month with three new documentaries focussed on the regions’ unique wildlife.

In Fawn Identity, two fawns – one, an impala in Africa’s southern acacia forests, the other a Thomson’s gazelle in the grasslands – lead parallel lives, struggling to survive to adulthood. It’s a story of courage and instinct, hope and desperation, set in one of the most beautiful and dangerous places on Earth.

Hippo Supremacy takes viewers to the danger-filled waters of the Luangwa River in Zambia, where a mother hippo risks her safety to protect her struggling calf as it grows up. The third-largest type of land mammal on our planet, the world of the hippopotamus is revealed as surprisingly complex.

Documentary Elephant, Return to the Wild, is the heart-warming tale of two young elephants recently freed from a life of back-breaking servitude who are now getting a chance at life in Northern Thailand’s unique Elephant Haven.

All three films are produced by Jochem van Rijs and Nature Conservation Films WW.

Fawn Identity premieres at 9pm on Monday 10 September, Hippo Supremacy at 9pm on Monday 17 September, and Elephant, Return to the Wild at 9pm on Monday 24 September.

PBS America is available on Freeview 94, Freesat 155, Virgin Media 276 and Sky 160.
