SUPER FAST FALCON

In 2015 Sunbittern Media took their Chicago peregrine story to the BBC as a programme idea and in the spring of 2016 production began on 'Super Fast Falcon'.

Named 'The Perry's', the falcon family were very unique, setting up home on the 26th floor of a downtown Chicago condo block, in a flowerpot! 

The pair of falcons were filmed by Sunbittern Media to act as the wild 'spine' of the production, with the natural behaviour documented then being shown in captive falcons to analyse the behaviour and the science behind the world's fastest creature.

Super Fast Falcon aired on BBC2 on 26/4/18 and will air on PBS later in 2018.
