UK terrestrial BBC1 has commissioned Fight for Life, a live event program from its Natural History Unit following animals as they go through the most critical and vulnerable periods of their newborn’s lives.

Among the animals to be featured in the program will be black bears and their tiny cubs in Minnesota, baby ring tailed lemurs in Madagascar, and cheetah cubs in the Masai Mara.

“With its global reach and an A-list cast of animals, Fight for Life will be the most editorially, technically and logistically ambitious live wildlife event we’ve ever undertaken,” said executive producer Tim Scoones.

Fight for Life was commissioned by BBC1 controller Danny Cohen and commissioning editor for science and natural history Kim Shillinglaw.
