As originally produced for - and broadcast on - PBS, the documentary program Nature: The Cheetah Orphans witnesses a remarkable phenomenon. When two baby cheetahs are orphaned (their mother devoured by a lion), documentary filmmaker Simon King travels into the grasslands and assumes the role of "surrogate mother" - teaching the cubs basic survival skills, observing quietly as the creatures undergo the successive stages of maturation and social development, and preparing emotionally for that bittersweet day when he must reintegrate them with larger packs of cheetahs and relinquish regular day-to-day contact - thus severing the emotional bonds established between himself and the cubs.
