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

Back To Nature, Local Branch
19 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WITH SO MANY nature films stockpiled, how few pay any attention to what is essentially our "back yard"(here in the United States). It is indeed a pleasure to see and hear about the incredible interactions between the Flora, Fauna and the ever-changing Weather of our Continent.

IT WOULD APPEAR that generally we as a viewing public seem to prefer such nature documentaries to be set in more exotic venues; or so it would seem that way to the studios, producers and networks. One only need look at the list of previous popular films and series. From those Safari Movies of Martin & Osa Johnson through the present day PBS staples,such as NATURE, and you'll see that programs centering on our continent are numbered among a small minority.

WE STUMBLED UPON this gem tonight, quite by accident. The filming, editing and varying subject matters all have come together in making it a delight to the senses. The two installments that we watched on the DISCOVERY CHANNEL proved to be as entertaining as they were informative. (Even "Educational", if you will).

HERE'S HOPING that NORTH America will have a long life and that it will be prolific and spawn many like series in the future.
