Summary
  • Braving Alaska. Ventures to the Alaskan bush where four families are carving out lives for themselves in the tradition of the state's early settlers. Focuses on the daily challenges of surviving in an untamed wilderness
  • Bear island. Researcher LaVern Beier attempts to deploy National Geographic's Crittercam, presenting the opportunity to walk vicariously with brown bears in their Alaskan habitat
  • Alaska's last oil. Explores the push to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Travels in time back millions of years to see how oil was created, and looks to the future to ask how far America will go to find every last barrel and at what cost
  • Giant bears of Kodiak Island. Explores the life and habitat of the world's largest carnivore, the Kodiak bear. Includes discussion of threats from human encroachment
