Triumph and mishap, comedy and tragedy - everything a good story needs, but this one is different, it stars a group of wild meerkats in South Africa. This ground-breaking thirteen part series records the daily lives of a group of meerkats known as "The Whiskers". Using state of the art camera technology above and below ground, and by tracking the group's movements 24 hours a day, the series paints a dramatic picture of a year in their highly complex and social lives. From viscous fights with rival gangs to infighting within the group, snake attacks, births of two dozen pups, and tragic deaths, "Meerkat Manor" includes animal behavior never recorded before. With characters that would be more at home in a real life soap opera, their entangled lives make for addictive viewing."Meerkat Manor" is "All My Children" meets "Wild Kingdom". The show is narrated by Sean Astin of "Lord Of The Rings" and "24".
