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.
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.
Just buy it, it's the BBC at it's best.
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.
- 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.
Despite this, these 50 minute documentaries are intriguing, mind blowing and awe inspriring and I would highly recommend them for anyone interested in Nature and Science.
