Question.

about a year back i saw i doc on Television. ( i think it was on Discovery channel) ( not sure).

It was a beautifull blond lady, with an old Masai warrior and lions that were travelling and went to see the ocean. They travelled to a sand desert also.

I am still looking on the name , and if its out on DVD i will sure buy it.

Can anyone help me with the name ?

Take care.

After 12 years of broadcast, Big Cat is going live! An unprecedented three weeks of live webcasting leads the way so you can follow the fortunes of Africa's biggest predators and their prey 24-hours a day. With live webcams, daily videos and field reports and a week of live television beamed directly from the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara game reserve, the big cats are coming closer to you than ever before.

Two new presenters, journalist Kate Silverton and local Masai guide Jackson Looseyia, will join Simon King and Jonathan Scott at their camp next to the Mara River. With a supporting cast of hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, wildebeest and of course the cats, anything could happen at any time.

But dare you stay tuned once the sun goes down? Like domestic cats, lions have superb night-vision. Their prey won't see them coming but you will, as infra-red technology reveals what goes bump, howl and roar in the African night. Don't miss the monochrome drama that's red in tooth and claw.

The drama of the big cats, their predators and prey, begins on the web on September 22, with more live and recorded features rolling out over the weeks before the series airs on TV. Get ready for the ultimate armchair safari.

I did see the harpy though, with the monkey in it's claws.  I guess they have to eat. Sad

I loved those birds coming up close to them.

I'm sorry I didn't see it from the beginning. I was zapping around and didn't see it all. What a stunt to climb up there.
