Killer Islands (6 x 60′) – Taking a unique approach that blends all the splendor of a natural history documentary series with an incredible investigative twist, this series sees world-renowned wildlife expert Dave Salmoni turn predator-detective as he sets out to solve some of the last big mysteries surrounding the world’s most successful natural-born killers.
Dave treks to some of the most dangerous islands on the planet to investigate how and why their native inhabitants have been so spectacularly successful at surviving – despite the harshest of conditions. Getting dangerously close to the world’s wildest creatures – from the vampire bat and the great hammerhead shark to the killer whale and the grizzly bear – Dave lives alongside them to uncover the secrets of their domination of these strange, confined places, over and above any of the other species that live on them.
Heart-stopping adventure tempered with the eye-watering imagery of our planet’s hidden beauty – this series pits Dave among the terrifying unknown. Will Dave manage to escape unscathed as he dares to explore what these killer islands have in store?
