The wetland paradise of the Okavango in Botswana is a rich feeding ground for a spectacular array offish predators, including the magnificent fishing owl. By day, eagles and kingfishers also plunder the waters, while below the surface lurk other bizarre hunters. But by night the fishing owl rules supreme.
Narrated by David Attenborough, this documentary captures the hunting prowess of this rare bird in action as it plunges into the dark waters to seize the pike that live there.
It was 250 years ago on Tuesday that the Jacobite Rebellion was crushed when the English army, led by the Duke of Cumberland, defeated the troops siding with the Young Pretender, Charles Edward Stuart, in the Battle of Culloden, near Inverness.
This drama-documentary, the first of tonight's two programmes looking at a bloody chapter in Scottish history, was written by John Prebble, author of an account of the battle. It tells the story of the Jacobites, with historians shedding new light on the motives of Bonnie Prince Charlie, whose invasion of England in 1745 and opposition to King George II had lit the fuse that initiated the rebellion.
The battle left behind it a legacy that included the Highland Clearances during the 19th century, as well as contemporary resonances with the suppression and decimation of Gaelic culture and language.
Culloden, a film about the battle, follows at 7.25 pm.
Tonight's second programme marking the 250th anniversary of the Battle of Culloden is a 31-year-old drama-documentary hailed as a masterpiece when it was previously shown on BBCtv.
Directed and produced by Peter Watkins, it re-creates one of the bloodiest engagements ever fought on British soil, stripping away many of the romantic myths surrounding Bonnie Prince Charlie and his Jacobite army. Descendants of those who fought in the battle are featured in the reconstruction, which also looks at how the conflict has shaped modern Britain. See today's choices.
