Lost Land of the Tiger: Discovery of a Lifetime
Following extraordinary reports of tigers living in the mountains of Bhutan, the expedition shifts to high altitude. Cameraman, Gordon Buchanan, captures remarkable footage of a snow leopard cub at over 5000 m. And on his heat sensing camera, he picks up a big cat stalking through camp in the darkness. Along the Tibetan border, explorer Steve Backshall, treks to the mystical Tiger Mountain. Helped by a remote tribe, he has a very close encounter with the world's most elusive predator. The plight of the endangered tiger brings biologist, Dr George McGavin, to tears. As the expedition culminates, Gordon makes the discovery of a lifetime.
