STF: Broken Tail

Colin Stafford-Johnson spent almost 600 days filming the tiger Broken Tail and his family which resulted in some of the finest tiger documentaries ever made. Broken Tail was the most flamboyant tiger cub he’d ever seen. Impossibly cute, he gamboled and posed for Colin’s camera through the first years of his life. But then, without warning, Broken Tail disappeared. He abandoned his sanctuary and went on the run, vanishing into the Indian wilderness for almost a year. He was barely three years old. In this spectacular quest across Rajasthan, Colin retraces Broken Tail’s last journey, gathering clues as to his route and his behaviour, asking why he abandoned the park and, above all, searching for the truth behind the future of the last wild tigers in India.
