The Passing of the Buck Narrated by David Attenborough
Blackbuck once roamed India in herds of thousands.
Mogul Emperors coursed them with cheetahs, British sportsmen shot them for their horns, and expanding human populations overran their grazing lands until, today, those huge herds are but a memory.
This rare glance of India's seldom-seen wildlife portrays the behaviour of the most graceful of antelopes, and investigates its relationship with modern man.
