South African filmmaker, John "JV" Varty, has spent some forty years photographing and working with big cats. His efforts were instrumental in helping Londolozi Game Reserve become one of the world’s premiere spots to view wild leopards. As the 21st Century began, Varty turned his attention to arguably the most endangered of big cats—the tiger.


Tiger Man of Africa covers two years in the lives of JV and his tigers at Tiger Canyons near Philippolis, South Africa. The journey begins with the mating of two pairs of adult tigers in 2008, and follows the adventures of the four cats and their offspring. Thanks to his ever present camera and his unique ability to get “up close and personal” with these magnificent animals, John Varty has created a remarkable video diary that documents the tiger as never before, from the miracle of birth to the thrill of the hunt to the hard reality of natural selection to the triumph of ultimate survival.

      On Christmas Day 2007, a 243-pound Siberian tiger named Tatiana escaped from her open-air enclosure at the San Francisco Zoo and mauled three young men. Before long, one 17-year-old boy and the 4-year-old tigress lay dead. The incident was the first time a visitor was killed by an escaped animal at an accredited zoo in the United States. Zoo Tiger Escape investigates the how and why of what really happened that night—from the possible motivational factors that led the tiger to escape, to the complex evolution of enclosure design. The show provides exclusive documentary access to the San Francisco Zoo's efforts to reconstruct its tiger enclosure, as well as candid interviews with zoo staff members on the tragedy.

From the scraps of DNA, an ancient face appears. But as they crack this genetic code, they find far more than they bargained for, and the discovery threatens to overturn our long-held concept of how humans populated the earth.
