- Back to TV from BT
Savage Kingdom starts on Sunday 27th November at 6pm on Nat Geo WILD, BT TV 318/374 HD.
The global miniseries event Savage Kingdom, a rare look at warring animal clans battling for survival in a remote region of Africa that is drying up after years of flood-soaked abundance.
The royal families in the Savage Kingdom are lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs. Each episode is told from one predator’s point of view, resulting in dramatic, character-driven storytelling that seems like scripted drama, but no fiction could do this story justice.

The series has been made by Brad Bestelink, who has lived in the area his whole life and has been filming in the region for the last 15-20 years.
After ambushing a small family of Warthog on Savute Marsh, one of The Marsh Pride lionesses is seen with a young warthog piglet in her jaws.
Games of Thrones Charles Dance brings some gravitas and theatrical storytelling to the dramatic events in Africa.
Savage Kingdom will also be available for BT TV viewers in the Catch-Up area of the BT Player.
