From a boyhood spent catching snakes and crocodiles with his father and living in a caravan, Steve Irwin, is now a Hollywood celebrity. More commonly known as the Crocodile Hunter, he is seen by over 200 million people in 230 countries. However in Australia he's not as well known and sometimes not as well loved. Politicians have accused him of taking tourism back to the Stone Age and projecting the wrong image of Australia. Steve was brought to the screen by filmmaker, John Stainton and together with Steve's wife, Terri and daughter, Bindi, they now generate millions through television, movies and merchandising. Steve says all of that money is pumped back into wildlife and conservation projects. In this behind-the-scenes look at the Crocodile Hunter you will meet his family, his friends and see what a highly charged and emotional man Steve Irwin really is.
