Animals with Cameras
Programme Name: Animals with Cameras - TX: n/a - Episode: n/a (No. 1) - Picture Shows: Gordon Buchanan meets the meerkats at Cambridge University's Kalahari Meerkat Project in South Africa. Gordon Buchanan - (C) Gordon Buchanan - Photographer: Gordon Buchanan

Gordon Buchanan, probably the most famous wildlife camera in the country, is now working with scientists to get a really close-up look at animals – by fitting the beasts with their own cameras.

Among the animals featured include meerkats in the Kalahari, who show us what it is like in their underground homes; an orphaned chimp in Cameroon as it tries to find a family to adopt it; and penguins in Argentina as they catch their prey.

Animals with Cameras is on BBC One at 20.00.
