Quite simply, the best documentary series on Yellowstone ever produced.
Sets the standard for a wildlife documentary. Highly educational with stunning photography and well written narration. I visited Yellowstone in 1995 and wish that I had been able to see this series before my visit. Viewing this series should be mandatory for all aspiring wildlife documentary producers. Rather bizarrely, in 2017 the BBC decided to produce a new three part documentary, again based on the seasons, but this time with on-screen 'presenters'. The result is awful, with lingering shots of presenters walking up hills, speaking as if we are all morons. Why they decided to do it, I've no idea. It's like trying to replace Champagne with Cider. I have this original series on DVD. I won't be buying the 2017 version.
