I was lucky to be the cinematographer on this sequence for the BBC's Planet Earth series. We spent over two months trying to capture this unique behaviour and had many a night fighting with tiredness whilst watching lions sleep! When the moments of action happened they were fast a furious and we had to be ready. It isn't easy witnessing an elephant being killed but the lions had many cubs to feed and it was a fight for survival.There is also a 'Diary' at the end of the programme showing a bit more about how we managed to film the sequence.
