In an ancient land a battle for survival plays out like a "Game of Thrones" episode, but the warring clans here are lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs. Set in the remote wilderness of Savute, Africa, "Savage Kingdom" is a rare look at rival animal factions fighting for decreasing resources in a parched region. Complete with brutal violence, unexpected deaths, surprising characters, and even romantic interludes, each episode is told from one predator's point of view. The result is a dramatic, character-driven story shot by award-winning Botswanan filmmaker Brad Bestelink. Emmy-nominated actor Charles Dance narrates the miniseries.

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.

The day-to-day lives of majestic animals, including lions, zebras, baboons and cheetahs, over the course of a year in Tanzania are documented in "Serengeti."

There are new arrivals and unexpected problems, as well as danger at almost every turn.

Each animal has a unique story, and many of the stories come to the surface.
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.
"Born in Africa" takes viewers into the center of five animal families -- lions, jackals, cheetahs, hyenas and meerkats -- as they raise their young in the wilderness. Innovative camera techniques are used to follow the animals' tender, emotional and often stressful stories from the moment their babies are born through different stages in their maturity. The series provides a heartwarming and intimate look at the different parenting techniques each of these species employ to give their newborns the best chance at survival in the unforgiving wilds of Africa.
"Dynasties" is a documentary by Sir David Attenborough as he goes on a journey behind some of the most celebrated and endangered animals on the planet. Follow the stories of penguins, chimpanzees, lions, painted wolves, and tigers. Each of these animals is locked in a heroic struggle against the forces of nature and their rivals -- they face harsh environmental conditions, dangerous predators, and even the greatest threat: humans. They actively seek to fight for their survival and the survival of their families -- their dynasties.
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.

All of these have uniquely evolved to their environments and Africa's extremes, each hosts a haven for the varying animals of the savannas.
