This review is from: Natural World - The Bear Man Of Kamchatka [DVD] (DVD)
As a huge fan of bears, I love this documentary. Seeing the bears grow up with Charlie is wonderful, and Charlie is the best bear-friend I have ever seen on TV. I am a huge believer in people living in harmony with bears, bears only become agressive to humans because they have never forgotten what man has done to them before.
This documentary shows Charlie doing the most wonderful thing - taking orphaned bear cubs from a zoo and taking them to their natural habitat, where they rightly should be. He acts as a "mother" to them, teaches them how to swim, catch fish, be bears. There are cute moments, funny moments, such a brilliant documentary to watch. Charlie respects the bears and in turn they respect him. Its a shame not all humans can do the same.
If you like this documentary, you will LOVE reading about his bear project "Grizzly Heart: Living Without Fear Among the Brown Bears of Kamchatka" which he wrote with Maureen Enns. I only wish Maureen were in this documentary too, after having read the book, I know she was just as in love with these gorgeous cubs as Charlie was!
