Veteran presenter and Alastair Fothergill working on separate BBC projects, with latter making predators and prey programme

The fruitful creative partnership between Sir David Attenborough and his long-serving producer, Alastair Fothergill, who have worked together for more than 20 years on landmark natural history series including The Trials of Life and Frozen Planet, appears to have come to an end.

Fothergill said his next landmark natural history project for the corporation, which will be filmed on location around the world and explore the relationship between predators and prey with a budget predicted to be more than £10m, "will not be presented by David". "It will not have a presenter. I will choose a narrator later," he added.

The seven-part series, which has a working title The Hunt and is due to be broadcast on BBC1 in 2015, will have camera crews travelling far and wide to capture footage of a range of species and their hunting tactics. »
