Nature Documentary Uses Elephants as Camera Crew
An upcoming BBC documentary series by John Downer captures life in India's Pench National Park by use of hidden HD cameras, including this "tusk cam," a fairly unwieldy rig that is hung from an elephant's tusk. The crew also secreted cameras in rocks or logs able to be positioned by the trained elephants, allowing them to capture intimate shots of tigers, monkeys, and more.
The series "Tiger - Spy in the Jungle" will be shown on BBC One on March 30th and is narrated by Sir David Attenborough. I can't wait.
