Duration: 2 x 52'

Play Trailer  Play Screener  Contact Sales  Collection: Animal

In this unique series, Steve Backshall explores every aspect of fox life; an animal that's a true natural history success.

The fox is secretive, spending much of its life out of sight. In this engaging two part special, we explore the life of these often vilified and misunderstood creatures.

We’ll witness a vixen give birth in an underground den, see five cubs take their first steps outside, share the magic of rural encounters and witness the harsh dangers a city fox faces in our human world - from cubs being severely entangled in football goals to an adult fox trapped in barbed wire. There’s inner city fox rivalry and a unique opportunity which allows us to follow the life of seven rescued siblings from just nine days old to taking their first steps back into the wild.
