National Geographic snaps up Power’s croc docs

UK-based distributor Power has sold a pair of crocodile documentaries to National Geographic Channels International.

Nat Geo has acquired Touching The Dragon and Dragon’s Feast for its international services. Both series are produced by Power’s affiliate company NHU Africa.

Touching The Dragon documents the “incredible interactions between a man and a wild, five-metre long crocodile who have formed a genuine bond of friendship”. Nat Geo has taken worldwide rights and the one-off special will debut on its US channel in July.

Dragon’s Feast follows underwater photographer Roger Horrocks (Nature’s Great Events) as he dives among crocodiles during a feeding frenzy. Nat Geo has worldwide rights excluding the US and Italy.
