BBC Gordon Buchanan Elephant Family and Me 1of2

last year1K views

Gordon Buchanan tries to gain the trust of a herd of elephants in the wilds of Kenya to film this uniquely intimate portrait of their family life.

Wendy is a teenage elephant mother, struggling to raise her first baby Wiva. Filming them is tough - elephants are one of the most dangerous animals on earth thanks to years of human persecution. With the help of local expert Benjamin Kyalo, Gordon manages to get spectacularly close to the elephants on foot. And he witnesses at first hand the dangers baby Wiva faces growing up in the African bush.
