There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Old Wildlife Documentaries

I have a fascination with old wildlife documentaries, those made in the 80s and 90s, that would have amazing narration and story telling, along with exciting footage, something that i miss from modern documentaries.

I have been searching for some of these for some time now. If anyone have any links to them, I would greatly appreciate.

1) Documentary on Bardia National Park, featuring footage of the legendary giant bull elephant Raja Gaj and his rival Kancha. People say Raja Gaj was never captured on video, but I remember seeing it in this documentary, because that is how I came to know about this giant.

2) Documentary on Royal Manas National Park, Bhutan - This documentary showcased the immense natural beauty of this country, along with footage of a young male tiger trying to ambush a wild water buffalo.

3) Documentary on Bandhavgarh National Park - Shows Charger's arrival on the scene and Banka's last days, before Charger took over completely.

4) Documentary on Ranthambhore - Has the footage of Chenghis stalking deer from the grass and attacking and killing deer in the lake.

Please also feel free to share any documentaries that you have links to or been looking for.

Let me start of with the one on Nagarahole (kabini)

I know you said 80s and 90s but I've just watched a newer one called secret life of tigers. It's a 3 part doc with great narration like you enjoy, I highly suggest it, I'll try to find a link.

All about pench, and a tigress raising 4 cubs.

Are you talking about "Tiger- Spy in the Jungle" narrated by David Attenborough, the one with elephant cams? If so, then I agree, it was a wonderful series.
