From the makers of Human Planet and Planet Earth, and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, Wild Canada is an epic four-part series that takes place through time and across the vast scale of the Canadian landscape, revealing the country as it has never been seen before.
Played out in four, back-to-back episodes, Wild Canada takes an awe-inspiring look at the country’s majestic terrain and diverse species. This is the largest natural history survey of Canada ever seen on television and shows animal behaviour never before captured.
From the spectacle of massive humpback whales feeding off the coast of Newfoundland to ice-covered grizzly bears living near the Arctic Circle, to pronghorn antelope — the fastest hoofed animals on earth — racing across the prairies, Wild Canada explores the diverse animal kingdom that lives across this enormous country. It also tells the story of how humans have made their mark over millennia in often surprising ways.
Shooting close to 500 hours of footage with almost 20 different cameras to capture the images that comprise the four-part series, most images were composed in 4K resolution on the same RED Epic cameras used to shoot The Hobbit. Some sequences were shot at 10,000 frames per second to capture exquisite detail in slow-motion. Yes, it’s safe to say Wild Canada is a stunner.
