Fox Tales

Red foxes are an impressive species that demands our respect and our attention wherever they are found. One of the most widespread and adaptable mammals on the planet, in the last century red foxes have moved into urban areas in Europe, Australia, the USA, Canada and Japan and are able to change their behaviour to make a home almost anywhere. This documentary follows scientists in Madison, Wisconsin and Bristol, England as they track the stealthy encroachment of red foxes into cities. And we also join Dr James Roth as he studies how red foxes are moving out onto the Arctic tundra and the surprising way they are surviving in this harsh landscape.
