A BBC documentary done in the style of a soap opera, focusing on the lives of lions, cheetahs and leopards in Kenya's Maasai Mara. Includes eight seasons overall, having gone through several incarnations as Big Cat Diaries, Big Cat Week and Big Cat Live. Filming is timed to coincide with the wildebeest migration into the Mara. At the start of each season, they select several cats, including at least one lion, leopard and cheetah group, and follow their adventures. On occasion they also discuss animals of other species who happen to be passing through, such as showing the crocodiles' attempts at hunting the migrating herds while they cross the Mara River, filming the servals they occasionally spot in the grasslands, or giving a look at the softer side of the hyenas that the big cats repeatedly tangle with. Tropes in this show: AnyoneCanDie - The producers have no control over the fate of their big cat stars, and life in the Masai Mara can be harsh, ''especially'' for the small and cute cubs. Toto, a young cheetah cub, is one of the most heartwrenching examples. DayInTheLimelight - Has happened for many of the other residents of the Masai Mara, like the crocodiles, servals, hyenas, vultures, elephants, etc. PantheraAwesome - Obviously.
