With thanks to the BBC website for sharing a great clip with Eaglefalconer.
It’s a video of a Kazakh hunter in Mongolia who forms a partnership with a golden eagle in order to hunt a fox. A tiny camera strapped to the eagle gives an eagle-eyed view of the Altai mountains as it swoops on its prey. This sequence was shot last (2010) year while making the documentary series Human Planet.
Human Planet is an 8 part series about the relationship with the natural world. You can find more information about the programme from Human Planet Explorer
Kazakh musician Aigan Badel plays music directly inspired by the eagle hunters and landscaoe of the Altai Mountains. The footage of the eagle hunters was shot on location in Mongolia during the filming of Human Planet.
