Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom: Hunters of the Sky

1968 NR

Hosted by mustached ecologist Marlin Perkins, this Emmy Award-winning program revealing the fascinating habits of wild animals in their natural habitats served as an archetype for the narrative nature documentaries that would follow it. This collection of episodes, centered around the theme of birds of prey, features footage of cranes, condors, eagles, falcons, puffins and other "Hunters of the Sky" in pursuit of their quarry.
