This is a documentary drama series which follows a meerkat family in the Kalahari Desert, South Africa, called the Whiskers. Flower is the leader/dominant female of the group, Zaphod is her partner and dominant male, Youssarian is Zaphod's younger brother and Flower's ex-lover and Mozart, Tosca and Shakespeare are all children of Flower. In our journey with this group we'll follow several intriguing events like: Fights with arch rival group the Lazuli; storms; death; family politics and the disappearance of a meerkat we had gotten to know very well. Written by
The meerkats Youssarian and Zaphod are named after two rebellious characters from satirical and humorous literature: the insubordinate John Yossarian in Joseph Heller's "Catch-22", and the egocentric Zaphod Beeblebrox in Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". See more »
The thing that struck me most about this program is that meerkats are more interesting than any Big Brother series. It has a distinct Big Brother style situation with cameras situated around a family of meerkats and it follows their everyday movements. The group is dominated by 'Flower'. The voice-over is totally hilarious as well for example; "Flower has been the only female in the family allowed to have babies, a) because she loves being the centre of attention, and b) because she's a psychopath" The program is what show like Big Brother and Celebrity Love Island want to be. The show is just a great piece of television, whether its the members of the family sneaking of to a different clan to have a quick nookie or to the young-ones fighting off elders for bits of scorpion!.
