Into The Dragon’s Lair

DISCOVERY CHANNEL – Sunday 30 May, 9.00pm

Discovery Channel takes you on a perilous journey with underwater cameraman Didier Noirot and environmental photographer Roger Horrocks as they embark on an expedition Into the Dragon’s Lair. The plucky duo have decided explore the one hundred metre deep papyrus caves of Botswana’s Okavango delta and get up close and personal with one of nature’s most fearsome predators: the Nile Crocodile – which will see them diving into the actual den where these giant crocodiles drag their prey.

Didier and Roger set out to understand and document the underwater behaviour of these dangerous reptiles, while exploring the fears and fascination that humans have with them. They confront our ultimate nightmares and transform them into scientific understanding and beauty.
