Yellowstone

Saturdays 8.30pm

Show Synopsis

Yellowstone is no ordinary wilderness – a lost world of vast plains and endless forests defended on all sides by towering mountains, home to America’s last great Bison herds and realm of the wolf.

It is also the most extensive thermal area on Earth. There are more than 10,000 boiling springs, fumaroles and bubbling mud pots here and more Geysers than the rest of the world put together – these strange natural wonders first made Yellowstone famous and still make it unique today.

In a land of beauty and peril, the dramatic lives and fortunes of its animals are inexorably bound together. Intimate and emotional, epic and engaging, Yellowstone reveals the grandeur of this amazing place as its animals struggle to survive over the course of three vividly changing seasons.
