THE PREDATORS Narrated by Robert Redford, this film explores the dramatic relationship between predator and prey. They are shown not as fearsome enemies of humans or of each other, but, rather, as vital parts of a balanced wilderness ecosystem doing what Nature intended - killing to eat. The story stresses the importance of preserving the Predators as an integral part of the beauty, mystery and diversity of life.
