Our forests are filled with creatures, some of them very familiar to us, and others not. There is one inhabitant everyone thinks they know — but hardly anyone ever gets to see: the badger.

This documentary shows that, contrary to their reputation as grumpy loners, badgers have close family bonds. Follow a female badger and her two cubs as they learn to walk and take a few shaky steps outside. Get to know the entire badger clan and the creatures who share their habitat as the seasons change, and the badgers prepare for the long months of hibernation in winter.

This remarkable documentary finally reveals the secrets of the elusive creatures, showing them as they really are — clever omnivores, skilled master builders, and social family animals.
