This six-part series journeys to the eponymous region of Africa, swapping the usual natural history format for a dramatised narrative starring the continent’s most charismatic animals, and detailing how their interconnected lives comprise the Serengeti ecosystem.
There’s jealous rivalry between baboons; a young hyena that’s just lost her mother; an exiled lioness confronting a male stalker; and preparations for the annual Great Migration. These fictionalised stories make this unique mini-series particularly kid-friendly, although some predatory animal behaviour could result in tears, so parental guidance is of course recommended. John Boyega fills in for Sir David Attenborough as narrator, and new stabilised camera systems get up close and personal with the animals, adding a truly immersive and intimate quality to the stories that unfold.
