From the makers of Planet Earth comes the ground-breaking new series North America. Three years in the making, each episode ranges across this immense continent taking in the fascinating animals, threatening terrain and ferocious weather. The series also shows some animal behaviour never-before-captured on camera, from the diving Grizzly bears in Alaska trying to catch salmon on the way to their spawning grounds to the little-seen, elusive desert jaguar in Mexico. This is where life collides with hostile, untamed wilderness in the most diverse, deadly environment on Earth.
