Using specially designed and camouflaged cameras this documentary offers an intimate look into the secret lives of bears in various parts of the world. The disguised spy-cams blend into the bears natural environment to capture a glimpse of the everyday life of these engaging creatures. Unprecedented footage of wild Pandas in their native bamboo groves in China shows never seen before activities of these elusive and endangered bears. The documentary also gives a new insight into the lives of Grizzly bears and Arctic Polar bears. The last bear shown is the South American Spectacled bear, the inspiration for Paddington Bear.

This documentary is quite fun and very insightful. The filmmakers with their clever camouflage camera have captured images never seen before, like the infamous Panda Bear headstand. (watching it, you'll understand why its infamous.) Because the action is very much in frame, its hard to believe that a human wasn't really standing there. But, because a human wasn't standing there, the bears are at their most natural and rambunctious selves. David Attenborough narrates this show and he is quite pleasant to listen to. The music is fun and matches the action nicely, but there were a couple of times I wish it would shut up. My favorite segment was the Spectacle Bear. The mother was so endearing and caring, I myself, wanted to hug them. My sensible mind says "that is not possible" but with this video, its the next best thing.
