Simon King has filmed Africa's big cats for 20 years - but he has never been to India and has never seen a wild tiger. With the catastrophic decline of the world's ultimate big cat, the chance of documenting a tiger making a kill is becoming rarer and rarer. To crack one of Natural History's toughest challenges, Simon teams up with Indian tiger expert Alphonse Roy - who after 17 years in the jungles of India knows his subject intimately. But even Alphonse has not been able to record a successful hunt. By sharing their field craft, technical skills and local knowledge, can Simon and Alphonse manage to record a Tiger Kill, and in doing so, better understand this magnificent but highly endangered species?
