    Found this today,I devour anything Jim Corbett and have done since I was a small boy. Thanks for posting that film,I wasn't aware of it existing at all.
    The historical footage was interesting.
    As a sambar hunter I saw a sambar stag on the wall and heard one 'honk' also

    There is another BBC Corbett film that was produced much more recently. Less historically accurate, by all accounts, but enjoyable nonetheless. I have searched but have not yet been able to locate it.

    Anyone else seen it or know where it can be found?

    Found this one as well. Haven't watched the whole thing yet. Not sure if the link will work as it is a mobile YouTube link.
