Telecast on Animal Planet from June 13 at 8.30 pm

The documentary on wild dogs of Asia produced by city's renowned wildlife photographers Krupakar and Senani, titled 'The Pack' has been nominated for being screened during the ensuing prestigious 'BBC Wildscreen' festival.

The above documentary, entirely produced in Asia, is the only entry in the open section of the festival, a distinction. The festival will be taking place in Bristol, UK in October this year.

The film that has been made on a hunting animal is quite long (150 minutes) and was screened for many years in the forests of Nilgiris. It portrays many aspects of the social life of wild dogs not known to the world of science.

The popular television channel 'Animal Planet' will telecast the documentary 'The Pack' across 140 countries including India in five installments of 30 minutes each. The telecast will begin on June 13 at 8.30 pm and will be continued on the following four Sundays.

The same team of Krupakar-Senani hailing from Mysore had in 2006 produced a 47-minute documentary titled Wild Dog Diaries under the banner 'Krupakar-Senani Features'. The documentary had earned appreciation and won prizes after being screened during Wildlife film festivals in Japan, France and Singapore.
