DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, July 2017) Canyonlands, high country and sprawling shores take center-stage in BBC AMERICA's Wild West. Explore this fascinating area of North America in the networks three-part natural history program premiering Saturday, August 19 at 9/8c. The all-new series anchors a look back at some of BBC AMERICA's groundbreaking, Emmy(R)- nominated natural history events including, Planet Earth II, Planet Earth and Wild Alaska. Welcome to America's Wild West. A picturesque land with a litany of characters including the shrewd coyote, the feisty hummingbird, the mighty blue whale and the spirited mustang. The documentary explores this fascinating area of the continent, revealing how three radically different worlds were formed, the forces that shape them today and how life has found brave and enterprising ways to survive. Discover the gritty, tough deserts, the cool grand mountains and the dynamic and changeable coasts. Home to a vibrant cast of tricksters, pioneers and outlaws, the series also finds out how people have survived in this harsh environment over the years. Beginning with the examination of Native American cave art, the documentary moves through the ghost towns of past pioneers and on to today - where the land is used for both business and pleasure. Produced by BBC Studios, Executive Produced by Emmy(R) -winner, Michael Gunton (Planet Earth II, Life), with Patrick Morris (Galapagos, Wild Africa) serving as Series Producer, Wild West will shine a light on the landscapes, wildlife and people of this vibrant world in new and compelling ways.
