Comments: Biggest downside is the location and time of year that means the lions all have a ton of flies on their faces

The Notch Bros had too much territory and too many prides to protect. Things got wrecked

First half is better, and really, the story told on Reinhard’s web site is more clear than it comes off in the Doc. It’s a cool story about the yearly cycle of plenty to scarce and what happens when the territory to be protected becomes too large to do it effectively

Summary: 1) Rulers at Risk 2) Days of Danger

"Pride" explores the natural history of African lions living near the Olkeju Rongai stream and the Mara River in southern Kenya. The mini-series focuses on the lives of two particularly prides, using thermal imaging cameras to capture their nighttime as well as daytime activities

Only few big cats have been as intensively studied as lions. We thought we knew everything about them. Yet some parts of their lives kept hidden in the dark. Cameras follow two prides and their respective females by day and by night, revealing astonishing behavioral patterns of Africa's largest lions. Symbols of courage and power, lions have been intensively researched for many decades. While hardly a single facet of their lives has gone unnoticed, certain things have remained hidden. Thanks to thermal imaging cameras, this two-part series reveals the last secrets of Africa's largest wild cats. We follow two prides in Southern Kenya and their respective females by day and by night, discovering astonishing behavioral patterns. Lean times face the animals as the huge wildebeest herds, which, until now have supplied the young families with ample food, are migrating south to the Serengeti. We will watch the daily struggle for survival as these mothers risk everything in order to rear their young. Protecting their youngsters from threats such as pythons, African buffalo, and elephants. However, it is the other lions that are the greatest threat. We will observe as the fate of the young lions is decided during the next few weeks and when a group of young male lions arrives with ambitions of wresting the territory from its current rulers, the situation escalates in this dramatic family saga
