Bertie Carvel has a sleek purr of a voice and the Doctor Foster actor is ideal as the narrator of this slightly breathless tour of the world’s big cats, which continues tonight.

Some of it – lions on the savannah – we’ve seen before. But it’s unlikely the footage of night-vision cameras following a jaguar trying to crack open a turtle will be familiar.

Then it’s off 2,500 miles north, to California, where a bobcat has set her sights on a gull, clearly having missed the memo that it can fly and she can’t. And she’s blind in one eye.

Need more be said about the determination of this most elegant of predators?
