In the Crossroads of Giants
Episode 1 - Dancing With Elephants
Episode 1 tracks some challenges faced by a documentary filmmaker trying to save his action cameras from being stolen by
thirsty African elephant bulls.
The cameras are discarded by the elephants, then retrieved... repeatedly.
Cameras get repositioned by the elephants numerous times - and even thrown around.
Interaction with these wild giants leads to some delightful - and some downright dodgy elephant encounters.
This action-packed first episode offers overview and insight into the entire series. Elements of other episodes are woven in to explain elephant and human behaviour. With exclusive, unparalleled access, the viewer gets an eye-opening perspective into what takes place and why - at Elephant Sands Lodge in Botswana’s north east.
Episode 2, 3 & 4 - Elephant Baby
Episode 2 tracks the events that unfold after a tragic accident in the wilds of northeastern Botswana.
After a truck is involved in an accident with an elephant on a national highway, a baby elephant barely a week old gets separated from its mother and herd.
Fortunately a number of truck drivers stopped to help - and before the day was out the elephant had been attended to and the relevant authorities informed.
We follow in this baby's footsteps and document what unfolds. A journey with highs and lows, with laughter, as well as a tear or two. A wildlife adventure from the heart of Africa.
It also gives perspectives on baby elephant behaviour in the wild.
