new PBS live nature special in July 2017
« on: June 01, 2017, 08:29:48 AM »
"Wild Alaska Live"  will air this July on PBS stations in the U.S.

We know how John loved Alaska and always supported nature however he could.  This show could be used for inspiration for us to carry on.  July 23, 26 and 30.  Add it to your calendar?

The show was quite good. Reminded me of a ramped up version of the nature shows of my youth.   

How many of you saw it and what were your impressions?  '

Makes me want to go back again pronto!! ;) 

If you missed this show tonight, you can watch it here.

Elizabeth and Quilter,  Our impressions are the same on the enthusiasm levels being over the top; however, I think so much of mainstream media is this way today.  I guess if we want to see the beautiful scenery, we have to deal with it, or watch on mute - now that's an option,  mute with closed captions! :) :)

I found the camera work to be spectacular.  And the environmental message they are including just by describing the seasonal actions taking place right now, are worth their weight in gold.  I guess there's always trade-offs!  The next two episodes aire on July 26 and July 30.
