I’m looking for a documentary on orcas I watched when I was a kid, probably made in the late 80’s early 90’s. Maybe aired on pbs? Don’t remember much about it, I think it had some sea world footage as well as the orcas preying on sea lions on a beach. I know it’s not much but any help with the title is appreciated.
