Joanna Lumley: Catwoman

Right under our noses, a quiet invasion has been taking place. The cat is now officially the most popular pet in the western world. And yet, for thousands of years, no creature has divided us quite like this one in stirring such conflicting emotions. Now, Joanna Lumley turns cat detective, unraveling this feline enigma everywhere, from their god-like status in Ancient Egypt and their persecution in the Middle Ages, to a bizarre medieval cat festival in Belgium. From the cats who formed a Chicago rock band, to tracking down the amazing big cats and lords of the jungle, Joanna charts the evolution of the species from one common ancestor. Further exploring why cats stir such conflicting emotions in us, Joanna hopes to learn how one of nature's most efficient killers ended up as our favourite companion.
