The Tigers of Scotland - close up

“We naturally wanted to aim for high quality - 4K should really be the default for all natural history programming.

4K TV owners will be able to enjoy an incredibly unique natural history documentary about the Scottish Wildcat, in the highest resolution ever – and it will be the first in 4K about the Wildcat species.

Leanne Gater, Director for Wild Films, who is creating The Tigers of Scotland, added “We naturally wanted to aim for high quality - 4K should really be the default for all natural history programming. It means viewers get the best possible picture quality in which to view the wonders of the natural world. We really wanted to make a film about the Scottish Wildcat because it’s such a charismatic creature that is simply unknown to most people - and it really needs our attention because we are in danger of losing it as a species within just a few years.”

The feature documentary journeys across Scotland to uncover the traits, clues, underestimated threats, the landscapes and the conservation efforts which currently shape the life of the Scottish Wildcat.
The Tigers of Scotland will also investigate the life of the Wildcat, from past through to the present, and how they overcome the challenges of surviving when they are so close to extinction.

Viewers will be able to experience the sheer wonder of wildest Scotland as the documentary takes you on an epic journey through the dramatic native landscape.

Scripted by well-loved Scottish poet John Rice, and soundtracked by Sophie Mapplebeck – it will be a unique natural history programme addressing a little-known species which is under serious threat of complete extinction. For natural history fans and 4K TV owners, it will prove a fascinating and satisfying watch.

The Tigers of Scotland will enjoy the stunning depth of field and needle-sharp resolution which 4K has to offer, wowing audiences, and perfectly showcasing the production efforts of the Wild Film's crew.

About the Scottish Wildcat

Scottish Wildcats are affectionately known as the ‘Tigers of Scotland’ or ‘Highland Tigers’. The name originates from their striped fur and that they’re not only Britain’s largest predator, but the UK’s only big cat.
