Product Description

Documentary series focusing on the wildlife of America's Yellowstone National Park. A World Heritage site with an area of 3,400 square miles, Yellowstone boasts lakes, canyons, rivers and mountain ranges, and is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. Set against a backdrop of stunning scenery and majestic panorama's, this series follows the lives of Yellowstone's wolves, grizzly bears, antelope and buffalo, as they try to survive three widely differing seasons.

Product Description

Yellowstone is no ordinary wilderness. It has the distinction of being the worlds' first national park and is a lost world of vast plains, lush meadows and endless forests defended on all sides by towering mountains. It is the most extensive thermal area on earth with more than 10,000 boiling springs, fumaroles and bubbling mud pots and more geysers than the rest of the world put together. It's these strange natural wonders that first made Yellowstone famous and still make it unique today. It is also the natural beauty of Yellowstone combined with its iconic inhabitants that attract millions to visit every year. Home to America's last great Bison herds, the grizzly bear and realm of the grey wolf, this landmark series reveals the grandeur of this unique place as its animals struggle to survive over the course of the vividly changing seasons. Join the charismatic cast of Yellowstone's wildlife as they turn to face the extreme challenges of the seasons and discover just what it takes to brave temperatures 40 degrees below zero, to live through raging forest fires or to fight to the death for the right to breed. The daily struggles of the wildlife are intimately linked to Yellowstone's greatest secret: that sleeping right beneath the snow is probably the world's largest volcano. The fate of everything in this extraordinary wilderness is in the hands of forces more powerful than we can possibly imagine. Larger that some American states, Yellowstone National Park is one of the world's last and most spectacular wildernesses - a global icon of natural beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime BBC Blu Ray Nature 18 Jun 2009
Format:Blu-ray
This is an excellent Blue Ray, my copy has 1 disc not 2 as indicated and includes the Yellowstone people diaries. Favourite chapter is Winter the photography is sublime with crisp sharp images favourite shot the fox diving through six foot of snow for a mouse. Makes you want to go and buy a plane ticket and just go there. Envy the "Snowman" on the Yellowstone people who spends all winter removing snow from buildings can see why he loves it.
Just buy it, it's the BBC at it's best.

By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Yellowstone isn't the sort of natural history documentary to challenge your perceptions, but it is another of the BBC's thoroughly well-produced programmes which is a pleasure to kick back and enjoy.
The park's geology produces a weird backdrop of hot springs, savage winters, vast panoramas filled with wild elk, wolves and bears. There are three 50-minute episodes, one each for Winter, Summer and Autumn, demonstrating the savage extremes which the Yellowstone wildlife must endure. Snow as deep as houses settles for six months, the wild-fires spread in summer. All of this is filmed in gorgeous clarity and detail, demonstrating how the plants and animals cope with one of the harshest environments on the planet which swings between such complete extremes.
Yellowstone has also revised some of my opinions about different animlans; sheep, for instance. The Big Horns which survive throughout the bitter winter in the park are nothing like the tame creatures we see in the UK; the short sequence of the males engaging in their annual ferocious pre-breeding fights is astonishing. They're aggressive, no-holds-barred fighters -- not at all woolly-minded!

Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the series is, ironically, the ten minute fillers which concentrate on the people who work and spend time i nYellowstone. The people who watch geysers are a curious bunch, and the guy who clears the snow from rooftops for six months at a time must really like his own company! Similarly, a chap who swims (in a crash helmet) in the Yellowstone river gives a radically different perspective of life in the surrounds -- and the unhappy effects of introducing foreign species for sport fishing.

Yellowstone underlines the global importance of the National Park, especially now that increasing urbanisation touches almost every wild area in the world. It's an easy series to like, and enjoyable to watch again. Would be really stunning in Hi-Def, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yellowstone experience 19 April 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In this age of LCD Digital TV, this documentary about Yellowstone Natinal Park is probably the best ever produced. The photography is simply stunning, as is the stereo sound. It is almost as good as being there in person. One easily gets the 'feel' of the park, and the magnatude of it. The naration is excellent too, with just enough information to explain the picture, never talking down to the audience, or talking above their heads.
But the most impressive aspect is the photography. I particularly found the snowfalling in the first part to be the most stunning visual display I have ever seen on my 32" LCD TV.
I may never get to Yellowstone in person, but I feel that I have 'been there' and probably seen more of it than if I did actually visit in person.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful wild spaces... 12 Jun 2009
By RMCW
Format:DVD
We bought this for our 5 year old son who is animal mad - the beauty of this excellent series is that it is suitable for children and adults alike and can be watched and enjoyed by a wide age range. The series itself is beautifully shot and will make you plan a trip to Yellowstone to see this amazing place for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 9 July 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After watching this it makes me want to go there to see it for myself.

The picture is crystal clear and gives you the feeling you are right there with the animals and can feel the cold as the snow falls in winter.

Any documentory lover would remiss in not adding this to their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and educational 13 Aug 2009
By Peter H
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The plants, animals and people that make up Yellowstone National Park.

If you like nature and have a blu-ray player click this on to your wish list, because you can't possibly feel short-changed. The four seasons are spread over three chapters and between them (if you play from back to front) you get diaries of the people that live and work in the park.

(These bits are not all in HD).

Might have liked to see more of the birds - but that is just me and you can always replay the bits you love. The humming bird scenes are just sublime in HD. Will probably end up watching it many times over - and so would you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking beauty 15 Sep 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Having been in Yellowstone for 3 Weeks, I was rather excited to watch it on Blu-ray.
What can I say, the footage is marvelous. Very intimate insight into the live of Yellowstone during the harshest winter season, were temperatures drop to 70`Fahrenheit. I'm a private videotographer so I know when artists are at work. I was just stunned how many differen angeles a wolf chase was taken at. And perfectly so, really close up. For the just mere mortals Yellostone is closed during wintertime. Streets up to 15 feet under snowfall. How it was possible to set up a camerateam in these conditions defies my imagination. And there were multiple teams out there in one location. It must have been incredibly difficult. Only people who really love the environment and do relate to the wildlife are able to pull off a feat like that.
The picture quality is superb. Especially with aerial wide angle shots the detail you could make out got me almost on my knees. On a mountain slope, kilometers away you could cleary see the tracks of different animals. That is just amazing.
The eery atmosphere of hissing geysers, steaming pools of surreal colors and fogy mountains is put together like in a dream.
The sound quality doesn't stand behind. Very nice and clear surround sound.

Some details:
- incredible satelite images in a quality I didn't believe to be possible
- hunting packs of wolves
- captivating aereal images
- otters roaming through the snow to find ice-free riverbeds
- coyotes hunting mice in 3 feet deep snow
- impressive geyser activity
- buffalo and how they struggle to pull through this extremely cold weather
- grizzly bears with cubs
- and lots and lots more

It kept me in awe for the whole running time. I just can't recommend it enough, for children and adults alike.
