What time is Big Cats on TV?

Big Cats concludes on Thursday 25th January at 8pm on BBC1.

For more than two years the Big Cats team has travelled to 14 different countries and filmed 31 out of the 40 species – more than any other crew has done before.

We’ll see everything from the Canada lynx in the frozen North to the Pallas’s cat in remote Mongolia, the swamp tiger of the Sundarbans and the spotted cat of Sri Lanka.
