Predators don't normally show up at your home and watch you go about your day, so why risk life and limb by venturing into their neck of the woods? But some people aren't aware that hanging out in the land of wild animals is like getting lost in the seedy parts of town -- one wrong move could prove fatal. This series tells actual stories of people tampering with nature, upsetting the balance to the point that carnivores decide they don't want humans around anymore. Someone always loses the fight, and it's often us.

Put up your dukes -- er, paws -- and prepare to discover epic, bone-shattering clashes between some of the world's deadliest predators. From lions, tigers and bears to meerkats, mongoose and mice, the series features testosterone-induced battles between some of the biggest, baddest and often surprising fighters in the animal kingdom, revealing the extraordinary motivations and strategies that fuel each incredible brawl.
Not all animals are meant to be domesticated and kept as household pets. Many wild animals, by definition, are rough and rowdy, often leading to out-of-bounds behavior or savage instincts run amok. This series showcases jaw-dropping moments captured by cameras, including attacks on people and other animals, "believe it or not" encounters, and animals that portray human traits. Heroic acts of bravery, narrow escapes and unpredictable incidents are also featured in the hourlong episodes.
Produced by the team that created BBC's "Planet Earth" series, "The Hunt" explores the relationship between predators and their prey. Sir David Attenborough narrates this documentary while the cameras follow the animals in their natural habitats. With a specific focus on strategy, the hunters are examined in detail -- from their use of the environment to their sharp instincts and physical prowess. On the other side of the fence are the hunted, which use their senses and defense tactics to flee when they feel threatened. Each episode centers on a different habitat, and the last one focuses on the state of the planet.

Only the strongest survive in the animal kingdom, where the competition for food, territory or mates means employing skillfully crafted tricks of the trade. "Animal Armory" incorporates high-end imagery and computer graphics to reveal how wildlife use their teeth, claws, antlers, camouflage, venom and even spit to threaten and intimidate rivals and predators alike. With weapons of deception, animals disarm and entice prey to their death. Meanwhile, perhaps the oldest weapons employed by animals are projectiles, which have evolved into their own versions of poison-tipped harpoons, chemical missiles and high-powered bullets.
From the frozen tundra in the north to the dry forests of the equator, Sir David Attenborough narrates a compelling view of the planet. "Planet Earth" was the first natural history documentary to be filmed in high definition, and now a decade later improved technology has made it possible to capture further details, from elusive animal behaviors to previously inaccessible remote landscapes. In addition to exploring the wilderness, the series examines urban dwellings, focusing on animals that have adapted to city life.
English naturalist Chris Packham explores some of the strangest natural events to be caught on camera in this docuseries. Assisted by scientists and experiments, Packham explores the secrets behind bizarre science, crazy weather and medical marvels. Using footage taken by eyewitnesses and news crews, the host attempts to decipher the truth behind each scene. Some of the incidents under scrutiny are unusual animal friendships, towns under the siege of thousands of flying insects and extraordinary mating calls that have kept people awake at night.
Whenever documentary filmmakers at Discovery Channel and the BBC unite for a project, stellar television seems to follow. "Planet Earth: Africa" stems from this collaboration, as did the breakthrough natural history series "Life" in 2009. David Attenborough narrated that one, and he's back to take viewers on a journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa. Four years in the making, during which more than 2,000 hours of video were shot, the program consists of six hour-long episodes that feature an array of never-before-filmed species, animal behaviors and previously unknown places. Cameras uncover the extreme dangers of the Kalahari, the dense forests and snow-capped peaks of the Savannah, the dynamic Congo rainforest, the ever-changing climate of the Cape and the massive and parched Sahara.
