This is animal and human interaction on a truly compelling scale!
In series two of the hugely popular TV2 series 'The Lion Man', we return to the far north of New Zealand, back to the world of Craig Busch, New Zealand's very own Lion Man. Craig has dedicated his life to the preservation of big cats. He cares for and handles a number of rare and endangered animals, including royal white Bengal tigers and Barbary lions.
We open with the arrival of the rare white lion Gandor - he's come all the way from South Africa! We share Craig's excitement and anticipation of the birth of Rewa's cubs - will they be white like Rewa and Gandor? Watch again the animals enjoying the recently developed parklands. Check on the progress of our old friends - the tame lion Zion, his buddy Shia, the cheeky lion cubs, Foxy the baboon plus the progress of the young orange Bengal tiger cub Sita, and her mother Shikana.
'The Lion Man' reveals the quite awe-inspiring relationship that Craig has with these magnificent animals. Genuinely captivating viewing for all ages - this is an opportunity for you to relive the wonderful stories from this television series.
