Episode Details

First aired: May 27, 2014.

Only a hundred and fifty years ago, polecats were amongst the most common predators throughout the British Isles. At that time, they were familiar to country-dwellers as the "Masked Raiders". By the end of World War I, these beautiful, enigmatic animals had been brought to the very brink of extinction. The causes of such a rapid decline in numbers makes for a classic tale of conflict between carnivores and people. This film tells the dramatic story of how these enigmatic animals survived.
