Yellowstone as seen on ABC TV in-store October

Yellowstone is no ordinary wilderness, it is the world’s first national park and one of the world’s last and most spectacular wildernesses – a global icon of natural beauty. It is also home to some of the richest wildlife beyond the plains of Africa. Vast panoramas are coupled with intimate close ups as this landmark 3 part series reveals the grandeur of this unique place as its animals struggle to survive over the course of vividly changing seasons. The daily struggles of the wildlife are intimately linked to Yellowstone’s greatest secret: that sleeping right beneath the snow is probably the world’s largest volcano.

In winter, Yellowstone is frozen solid – buried by snow as deep as a house for six months. While the herds of elk and bison are gradually weakened by the cold, the park’s wolves grow stronger – but with one of the world’s largest volcanoes beneath the surface, everything from the freezing cold to the creation of a snow-storm is determined by the power at Yellowstone’s heart.

As the snow melts the extent of Yellowstone is revealed. Grizzly bears teach their young how to hunt fish and when to move out through valleys and grasslands into summer forests and up into the peaks. But summer here is fickle. August is the only month in the year when it does not snow, but then, just as it seems the easy living of summer has finally arrived, it is brought to an abrupt end as fires sweep through the forest. Also features the people who live and work in Yellowstone during the summer season.
Elk move down from the mountains and beavers repair their dams in preparation for winter. Winter is around the corner and there are just two months for the animals to get ready or get
out. Elk move down from the mountains to find food, and beavers repair dams before ice freezes their ponds. As the snow and ice return, many animals move out from the heart of Yellowstone, away from the protection of the national park.
