    Their daily ritual is aimed at just one result: survival. At the start of the 20th century the major species roamed most of Africa with the exception of the Sahara and the jungles. One hundred years on their territory has contracted dramatically. It's in this context - the daily law of the jungle - fight for survival for individual creatures and the new fight for survival for entire species - that this documentary documents the majesty of Africa's superb wildlife. The programme begins with a spectacle of awesome proportions the annual migration of the wildebeest showing the attacks it comes under from crocodiles and lions. The daily ritual of lions is documented from mating and hunting to attacks they come under from baboons. We follow a group of baby elephants frolicking in the waters of Botswana's Okavango Delta and speaking a complex language with which they can communicate over great distances. Other animals featured include: a graceful and agile leopard with superb shots of drinking hunting and eating; two black jackals and their meal under attack from hyenas; the aggressive hippopotamus; the cape buffalo the rare aardwolf and serval cat; and the cheetah surging up to 112 kilometres an hour to kill a Thomson's Gazelle. The documentary concludes on a positive note with a captive breeding programme for cheetahs showing tactics that can save still more of Africa's superb creatures from disappearing forever.

Greg's programmes are seen around the world from Grainger's World screened daily on Europe's Travel Channel to Tour Deluxe on the USA Travel Channel as well as Channel 7 Australia's The World Around Us.

    Far back in the history of Scotland clans formed together under the image of the wildcat and fought wars for the independence of the land. Today less than 400 Scottish wildcats remain in the wild and the extinction of Britain's last large mammal predator could come within the next decade. Last Of The Scottish Wildcats is the first film to capture rare footage of these unique creatures in their wild habitat and to fully investigate the threats facing their future through interviews with the people dedicated to saving Britain's last wild feline. The Scottish wildcat is Britain's very own critically endangered wild feline with less than 400 individuals left in the wild. Whilst Government is working out what to do about the problem an unexpected mixture of film-makers writers sculptors and photographers united by their interest in the species have started working towards its conservation. Public awareness is so essential explains director/producer Steve Piper the greatest threat to the wildcat is that very few people outside of the Highlands realise they're even there and only handfuls of them fully understand the threats to the wildcat or how to help. Fortunately communication is exactly what creative artists spend their whole life doing.
