The Tsushima leopard cat is one of the most endangered animals in Japan. Only 60 centimeters long and weighing about four kilograms, it lives exclusively on Tsushima Island in southern Japan. Automatic HD cameras were set up at locations where these cats were known to show up. Running 24 hours a day, the cameras recorded the habits of these rarely seen animals over one year. Viewers experience a leopard cat catching its rodent prey in the middle of the night, another stalking waterfowl in wetlands, even a parent and cub playing together in a rice field. The hitherto unknown life of the very rare Tsushima leopard cat is vividly shown here.

During the winter months, Kushiro Marshland in eastern Hokkaido, Japan, is home to the celebrated red-crowned crane or "tancho." As temperatures plunge, these cranes flock to the marshland where an underground spring provides warmth and prevents the water from freezing, and the local people provide food to nurture the birds back from the brink of extinction. These mass gatherings are fraught affairs with limited space and predators close by, but as winter progresses one of nature's most spectacular courtship rituals begins where courting birds mirror each other's movements in graceful, spellbinding displays that can last for days.

The Serengeti plain in East Africa is one of the world's most diverse and spectacular wildlife kingdoms. It's home to the bat-eared fox. They feed mainly on insects. With their long, big ears, they can detect the ultrasonic waves that insects emit. Ultrasonic waves usually travel in a straight line from their source, so a fox can determine the exact location the sound is coming from and strike, even if it's underground.

The Peruvian jungle in the upper reaches of the Amazon is home to two different species of monkeys, the Andean titi and the brown-mantled tamarin. What's interesting is that these two species live side by side as if they were members of a single troop. When titis feed on insects, they rely on tamarins to catch them. Meanwhile, tamarins use titis to get Inga beans to eat. To protect against predators, titis keep their eyes aloft looking out for birds of prey, while tamarins keep an eye to the ground for carnivores and large snakes.

The canals that crisscross England have long supported rich natural habitats. Along the Macclesfield Canal, in central England, diving rodents called water voles hunt for prey below the water's surface. Kingfishers alight on the trees that line the banks, intently eying the flowing water, then swooping down on unsuspecting fish. In spring and summer, flowers burst forth in waves of color. This program depicts the four seasons along England's canals, where people and nature live in splendid harmony.
