If you have listened to One Voice From Africa, you will recallKenneth Hieber’s exceptional interview with filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert covering The Last Lions.
Finally, The Last Lions will air on NatGeo WILDTV at 8:00PM on December 16th, 2011. The Last Lions is a masterpiece in cinematography with a gentle yet thought provoking story line. The filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert are an exceptional couple whose artistry touches all who view The Last Lions. And no more fitting storyteller than Jeremy Irons narrates the story of Ma di Tau (“Mother of Lions”) as she battles to protect her cubs against a daunting onslaught of enemies in order to ensure their survival.
Dereck and Beverly Joubert are award-winning filmmakers from Botswana who have been National Geographic explorers-in-residence for over four years. Their mission is the conservation and understanding of the large predators and key African wildlife species that determine the course of all conservation in Africa.
