The Secret Life of Elephants - Episode 2


Second in the series of three programmes revealing the emotional and dramatic lives of elephants in Kenya's Samburu reserve. Baby elephant Breeze is growing up fast, but with the dry season approaching, she is about to face her biggest test yet. Meanwhile, Breeze's teenage brother, Buster, seems intent on getting himself and Breeze into trouble. Outside the reserve, more trouble is brewing as people and elephants come into conflict. Elephant expert Iain Douglas-Hamilton sends daughter Saba on a mission to help one of their best-known elephants, Mountain Bull, who is on a collision course with farmers and villagers. Elsewhere, a marauding group of bulls are causing havoc by breaking into fields and raiding crops. The team think they might have an unusual solution and will need the help of some African honey bees. Back in the reserve, a devastating drought takes hold, and Breeze and her family are forced to compete with other elephants for food and water. Will baby Breeze survive these hard times?
