Storyline

Sweeping across some of the most diverse landscapes on the planet, North America takes viewers from the silent grandeur of lofty snowcapped peaks to fertile forests and dramatic windswept coasts. The continent's unique geography creates some of the most extreme weather on the planet. Wild animals living in these astonishing and sometimes brutal habitats must be fiercely resilient sharing that human spirit the continent is known for. From jaguars to spinner sharks, wolves that fish to wolverines high in the mountains, this is North America. Written by Discovery

Very good, but needs more continental view besides USA
10 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

For a series called North America, it seemed too focused to the US market and called some places that were Canadian, American, and some Canadian inhabitants, American. I'd like to see a more continental and balanced viewpoint in some terminology in the narration. OK, that's my only gripe really here.

Photography and production were first rate and I do recommend this. Shows of this calibre deserves a good reception because we need to see more stuff like this and take better pride of our great continent. The BBC sets the benchmark for this type of documentary, but this is a very worthy contender and I will definitely be watching all of this series. The cinematography is stunning and it's a definite must see.
