Trek: Spy On The Wildebeest
The famous spy-cams turn their attention to nature’s most awe-inspiring event – the great wildebeest migration. Trek features a cast of literally thousands, as countless wildebeest, zebra and antelope are joined by the hyena, leopard, jackal, cheetah and crocodile that prey on them. To personalise this story, remote cameras follow the fortunes of a baby wildebeest and a young zebra. Each has a very different story to tell. From their perspective, viewers experience all the significant events of the 3000 kilometre year-long circular journey. This epic story combines natural humour with high-octane drama. But the bouldercams, dungcams and invisiblecams of past productions have grown into an army of over twenty mobile and remote cameras, giving saturation coverage.
