For those who wish to contribute to Christian's legacy, John Rendall recommends WildlifeNOW.com (or The George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust for those outside the US).

John Rendall is one of the two men who raised Christian in England, and he is currently a trustee of The George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust. The charity is hoping to raise funds to restore the Kora preserve where Christian was rehabilitated.

"Christian the Lion" - DVD

Christian the Lion

The filmed-as-it-happened story of Christian the Lion is available on DVD!

The true story of a lion cub taken from his zoo-caged parents and sold in a London department store, and bought by two of the most understanding men a lion could hope to meet. Named "Christian", this remarkably gentle and intelligent lion became a British celebrity and professional model. As he reached maturity, his owners decided to give him something he was never destined for: freedom to live as a wild lion in Africa. A chance meeting with "Born Free" stars Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna led to an appeal to George Adamson to take Christian and teach him how to be a wild lion.

"Christian the Lion" is a most extraordinary film. It was made to finance the long effort to bring Christian to Africa and establish him with a pride of lions. You will see Christian in London and in Africa, George Adamson and his brother Terrence, many lions the Adamsons worked with closely, including the huge Boy from the movie Born Free, and the ENTIRE heartwarming reunion scene you've seen on YouTube.

This is the genuine, full-length, original documentary. Now digitally restored with 7 more minutes of original footage that was not included in previous editions. These DVDs are factory made, factory sealed, brand new, and guaranteed to play on US DVD players. They ship from the US for fastest service to US addresses.

4 Lion Documentaries on DVD

Lions Deluxe DVD Set

Includes "The Lord of the Lions", about Geoge Adamson

The Lions Deluxe Box Set includes four of the best wildlife films ever shot on the subject of the king of beasts.

Lord of the Lions
Travel to the African wild in this memorable film about George Adamson. Gaining worldwide fame through Born Free, the literary and cinematic story of the lioness Elsa, Adamson was known by many as the Lord of the Lions and master of the greatest wilderness in the world. Join Sandy Gall as he experiences Kenya and examines the life of the well-respected animal protector. Finished only months before his death, this film features first-hand accounts of Adamson s extraordinary adventures and inspiring life. APPROXIMATELY 60 MINUTES

Lions and Hyenas: A Balance of Power
On the grasslands of the Serengeti, home to the largest concentration of game in all of Africa, a delicate balance has developed between two species often presented as competitors. Join Martin Dohrn as he uses thermal cameras and image intensifiers to film day and night, charting the lives of the mystical scavenger and the king of beasts. Watch as the hyena and lion vie for power, sharing the same inhospitable habitat and pursuing the same prey, each existing at the top of the food chain and maintaining a relationship that is far more complex and surprising than myths reveal. APPROXIMATELY 60 MINUTES

Lions of Etosha
Nearly 500 lions roam the vast land of Etosha National Park in Namibia, each pride guarding territory, raising young, and feasting on prey. This film follows the Ombika pride, a family of nineteen, and offers a rare glimpse into the pride system, from family interactions and shared responsibilities to raising cubs and teaching them to hunt. Watch the pride s successes and failures, battles and births, and encounters with elephants and the rarely seen black rhino. APPROXIMATELY 60 MINUTES

Lions of Gir
India s Gir National Park and Sanctuary, one of the largest stretches of unbroken forest, is the last home of the Asiatic lion. Once found from the Mediterranean to Central India, the Asiatic lion was nearly hunted to extinction. Despite conservation efforts, their territory is decreasing and battles with humans are steadily rising. This eye-opening documentary examines the struggles these lions face in surviving. Captured on video for the first time, the Asiatic lion hunts, cowers from humans, and searches longingly for a place to roam. APPROXIMATELY 60 MINUTES
