Groundbreaking three-part documentary Lion Country: Night and Day, narrated by David Morrissey, continues with it’s second episode airing on Sunday 12 February at 8.00pm on ITV.
In part two, Prides in Conflict, the prides find that their territories are overlapping, which means the action and events in one lion family inevitably has consequences for the other. The discovery that Ava, one of the dwindling Hollywood Pride, has a litter of new-born cubs hidden away is great news.
However, the trio of ‘Punk’ males that lead the neighbouring pride are expanding into Hollywood territory, putting the cubs in immense danger. Growing fast, one of the Punk’s own cubs, Grace, passes a major developmental milestone, but it comes with a harsh lesson in lion etiquette. Stuck between the two prides, a lost orphaned elephant needs to reconnect with its family to survive.
Meanwhile, out of the blue, two big, dominant males return to their former kingdom.
Lion Country: Night and Day – Prides in Conflict Episode 2 (of 3) airs on Sunday 12th February 2017 from 8.00pm-9.00pm on ITV
