This visually beautiful documentary shows a glimpse of life in the Serengeti by focusing on a single family of cheetahs. It follows the standard nature documentary format: a male British narrator, lots of interesting facts, and a framing that helps humans understand the lives of wild creatures. Fans of big cats will enjoy it, and the many shots of Africa's natural resources are stunning to watch.
