Nature Documentary At Its Best
12 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

BBC nature documentaries are always worth watching as the images captured are quite remarkable. This BBC series, which consists of 3 episodes, is divided into winter, summer, and autumn. The series examines wildlife at Yellowstone National Park, which is the world's first national park and situated mainly in Wyoming, America. The three episode series focuses primarily on wolves, elk, pronghorns, beavers, trees, and bison as well as many other wildlife. Overall, Yellowstone is an amazing documentary. The images shot were captivating and inspirational. It's unbelievable how some scenes were shot as they were highly detailed and visually striking. One other factor worth mentioning is the narration. The script is written beautifully and merges perfectly with the imagery. I look forward to the next BBC documentary.
