1.  In the Valley of the Wolves

The Druids are the most celebrated wolf pack in North America. For almost a decade, they have held the Lamar Valley in northern Yellowstone. The valley is prime winter grazing for thousands of elk and thus the most coveted wolf country in all the Park.
But when their alpha female is killed by another pack, and their patriarch is found dead, their reign over the spectacular Yellowstone National Park's Lamar Valley comes to a sudden end - at least for a time.

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Bob Landis has chronicled the adventures of the Druids since their very beginnings and in this, his third film on the wolves, the Druids find themselves in trouble for the very first time.
After reaching the astonishing number of 37 members, the largest wolf-pack on record, the Druids begin to decline. Their leaders are failing with age and new packs are crossing their borders looking to claim the valley.
Then, a lone black wolf dubbed Casanova takes charge of rebuilding the clan on the edge of the valley. With a new generation thriving, Casanova leads the Druids back to battle the rival Slough pack.

This is the epic story of the fall and rise of the most famous wolves in America, their battles against rival wolves to hold on to their beautiful range, the dramatic twists in fortune that banish them from their valley, and the perseverance and devotion that bring them home at last.

Filmed over three years, this film is all about the extraordinary wildlife in Yellowstone National Park. It doesn't show any humans, just stunning close-up footage of wolves, as well as coyotes, foxes, bison, grizzlies, eagles, otters and a host of other animals.

Narrated by F. Murray Abraham
Filmed & produced by Bob Landis
Produced for National Geographic Television and Thirteen/WNET (2007).

BONUS: this DVD also contains an interview with legendary filmmaker Bob Landis.
 

2.  Christmas in Yellowstone

Look in any direction and it takes your breath away. Celebrate the beauty and wonders of the season in one of the most extraordinary places on Earth.
Here are sights that only a fraction of Yellowstone's almost three million visitors each year are privileged to see.

  • Observe red foxes as they dive head-first into the snow seeking a rodent repast.
  • Marvel at the beauty of "diamond dust" crystals as they swirl around herds of elk.
  • Listen for the percussive thunder of cracking ice as it ricochets off the mountains.
  • Enter the den of a grizzly bear that gives birth to two cubs while deep in hibernation.
  • And follow the trail alongside photographer and writer Tom Murphy, who has been coming to Yellowstone for the past twenty-six winters to camp, take photographs and experience the solitude of the park.
  • Conclude this unforgettable visit to Yellowstone on a joyous note by joining revellers in the Lodge to sing songs of the season by a roaring fire.

Narrated by Linda Hunt
Produced by Thirteen/WNET (2006).
