“The majestic Canadian Rockies with its free roaming bison, wolves and elk: one of the last remaining truly wild frontiers”

Complete series: contains 6 episodes on 2 DVDs
more than 5 hours of stunning wildlife footage

Untamed North America is a vibrant and very colourful wildlife documentary series that provides a unique account of the animals living in the mountains, valleys, glaciers, lakes and prairies of the Canadian wild west.

The series was filmed over a number of years by some of the world's best wildlife filmmakers, mainly on location in the Canadian Rockie Mountains.
By using the best camera techniques available, including static, hidden cameras, underwater cameras and special night equipment, Untamed North America has managed to capture the beautiful creatures and seasons of the Canadian wilderness in amazing quality and unparalleled clarity.

It looks at the many different animals that live in the untouched wilds of western Canada. The mountains, valleys and prairies have their own weather systems and micro climates and support a vast variety of wildlife throughout the year.
From Mount Robson to the banks of the Saskatchewan River, and from the Takkakaw Falls to the Columbia Icefield and Mount Mitchener, the majestic scenery of the Canadian Rockies is breathtaking.

The filmmakers have focused on a small number of key species by following them through their life cycles and key events. Many other animals make a brief appearance and some are shown in amazing detail.
The series follows families of Elk, Bison, Wolves, Grizzlies, Coyotes, and Beavers over a period of time, showing their development, family structure, feeding habits and survival strategies. Each animal is a link in the food chain in the mountains and on the plains, and this series shows both natural beauty and cruelty.

The images are vivid, razor sharp and much of the footage has been shot at very close range. The incredible close-ups of Wolves, Cougars, Bison, Goshawks and Moose are unprecedented.
The documentary is complemented by a grand, specially composed musical score.

Untamed North America provides more than five hours of amazing footage of some of the wildest and most spectacular animals of North America.
No interviews with scientists, no CGI graphics, no re-enactments or unnecessary background info – just five hours of animals in their natural habitats, without a single human in sight.
