“The wild wolf is back! An elite BBC camera crew follows their travels in the Cascade Mountains between Canada and Washington State”

This is a 2-disc DVD set, each DVD containing one 52 mins episode

At a time when wildlife is disappearing across the planet, one animal is making a comeback – the wolf.

This beautifully filmed 2-part documentary documents the return of one very special wolf pack to the snowy peaks of Washington's Cascade Mountains.

BBC cameraman Gordon Buchanan goes on the trail of the elusive wild wolf, which is returning in droves to North America. Few other animals inspire such hatred and passion.

The creatures were all but wiped out on the continent when European settlers arrived and killed an estimated one million wolves, but with the animals making a comeback, clashes with the local communities are also likely.

Once shot to the brink of extinction, the wolves are coming back with a vengeance and are on a collision course with humans. Scientists know very little about where they are from, how fast they are spreading and what their impact will be.

Gordon teams up with Jasmine Minbashian and a team of local scientists to track these invading wolf packs through the snowy peaks of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State, USA - the first specimens to return to the American Northwest in 70 years. As sightings of packs are being reported closer to major cities than ever before, understanding these animals has never been more important. Recently a pack was recorded just hours away from Seattle.

The team follows the elusive wolves of the Lookout Pack throughout the year using a variety of means – from dog sleds to snowshoes and skidoos. Finding the wily animals requires every ounce of field skill and technical expertise the crew can muster.

Does the resurgence of this magnificent animal signal a better future for all wildlife or will it inflame the age old dispute between man and beast?
