But when he learns that his estranged elder daughter Sawsan is missing Khafaji is forced into a desperate search to find her.

He soon finds himself up against her enigmatic university tutor, Professor Zubeida Rashid and discovers that Sawsan and her two close friends Sanaa and Zahra have been leading a hidden life that's led them into great danger.

Khafaji feels powerless until he meets Frank Temple, an ex Police Officer played by double Olivier Award-winner Bertie Carvel who has arrived from Britain on a mission to rebuild the Iraqi Police Force from the ground up.

Meanwhile a new threat represented by security op Douglas Evans provides a terrifying and sinister counterforce to his efforts.

King of the Mountains: Golden Eagle

Channel: Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Wildlife, Documentary

King of the Mountains: Golden Eagle

Aerial shots of mating Golden eagles, a fight between a Golden and a White-tailed eagle and a close look into the nursery of these birds combined make a spectacular film.

This documentary gives an intimate portrait of this large predatory bird and tracks the birth and coming of age of two Golden Eagle chicks in the High Tatra Mountains, from the hatching of the eggs, until the moment when the young birds leave the nest.

Tragic and funny moments make this movie an entertaining trip into the treetops of the European forests.

This documentary accompanies the mighty hunters of the skies on patrols across the breathtaking mountain scenery of its hunting ground.

While tracking the mighty bird, the wild nature in the hunting ground of the eagle family and the animals and plant life that share their habitat with the "king of the skies" add dimensions to the dynamic portrayal of the powerful creature.

The viewer is also right up close with the majestic bird as it, almost without beating its wings, glides over its territory filled with forests and canyons, stops suddenly and swoops down on its prey in a striking nosedive.

To see these birds in their habitats is to see them at their best.

Eagle: Queen of the Skies

Eagles are dramatic predators, powerful and agile.

They are top predators who battle fiercely for survival and work hard as parents to raise their young.

There are 60 members of the eagle clan, all united by their acute eyesight, broad, powerful wings, sharp talons and hooked beaks.

To explore the world of the eagle we follow the fortunes of one individual from hatching to leaving the nest and setting up a home on her own.

Her fight for survival reveals what it takes to become a queen of the sky.

King of the Seas: Sea Eagle

Channel: Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Wildlife, Documentary

King of the Seas: Sea Eagle

Follow into the different habitats of the sea eagle and learn more about this beautiful and fascinating bird of prey.

Featuring spectacular pictures of the Norwegian Lofoten Islands, where sea eagles "piggyback" on the catches of orcas and hunchbacks and pictures of the swamps of Finland, where they enjoy a similar symbiotic relationship with wolves and bears, the film casts a gaze at uncharted territories.

Thanks to dedicated conservationists, foresters and hunters, our forests are, now more than ever before, a breeding place for sea eagles.

The times where eagles have been seen as varmints are over. They are now perceived as an integral part of the food cycle.

Due to the fact that the habitats of the sea eagles in Germany are largely found in the north-eastern regions that are rich in water, the movie accompanies the eagles to an island, home to hundreds of sea ravens, where they rob the baby sea ravens of their food.

They seem to always profit from the successes of the fellow creatures in their habitats.

This film introduces you to the expert poachers of the animal kingdom.
