Comments: Lots of big cat drama in this series but also a lot of human drama as the three presenters look on, acting for the camera. This is one of those that's as much about the people who are showing us the cats as it is about the cats. But it's big budget and the cats are a great show.

Summary: Big Cat Diary (known as Big Cat Week from 2004 - 2006) is a documentary film that has been running since July 1996 on BBC television. The documentary is set in the Masai Mara and follows the adventures of big cats. Normally each year they have a lion pride, a cheetah and a leopard.

The series is set in the Masai Mara. The reason the Mara is such a great place for a documentary is because of the great migration. This means there will be a lot of hunting for the animals they film and also a greater chance of survival.
