Big Cat Week 2018

The A to Z of Big Cat Week

Paws for thought this March as Nat Geo WILD returns with another week of fantastic felines

If the Ancient Egyptians had TVs, they’d be absolutely beside themselves about this week of whisker worship

Watch Big Cat Week from Monday, 8pm, Nat Geo WILD/HD (CH 264/265). Also available for 30 days in Catch Up > Channels > National Geographic

Let’s face it, we worship cats just as much now as our ancestors did back then. Instead of building shrines and statues, we share funny videos on the internet, watch The Lion King until we go insane in the mane and dedicate entire weeks of TV programming to our four-legged friends. For the last seven years, Nat Geo WILD has contributed to the furry frenzy with Big Cat Week and so, of course, it’s back for an eighth!

 

Among a claw-some range of feline telly all week, at 8pm every day you can catch the UK premiere of a different big cat documentary, starting on Monday with The World’s Most Famous Tiger.

 


At the more action-packed end of the spectrum, on Sunday Jaguar Vs Crocs will have you clawing into your sofa. This documentary sees wildlife photographers capture the incredible lives of jaguars in Brazil, including the aforementioned deadly battle between a male named Scarface (yes, really) and a six-foot-long caiman!
