Big Pacific - Violent

Wednesday, June 28th at 8 PM

"Big Pacific" presents the ocean and its denizens in ways never before seen on television, exploring the monstrous to the minute; the alien to the intimate. Man has explored land, the ocean’s surface and large parts of the solar system, and in the 21st century we are just beginning to explore the depths of the Pacific Ocean. We yearn to unravel the mysterious Pacific, but she does not give up her secrets willingly. Surrounded by the Ring of Fire, the Pacific Ocean is the epicenter of natural mayhem. In the violent Pacific creatures must choose whether to avoid conflict or rise to meet it. There is plenty of food in the Pacific Ocean, but it is the challenge of finding that food that drives all life in the Pacific. In the voracious Pacific every mouthful counts. In the passionate Pacific, the quest to multiply has spawned a stunning array of unusual behaviors and adaptations.

Great Yellowstone Thaw

Wednesday,, June 28th at 9 PM

Wildlife cameraman Jeff Hogan discovers a nest of Great Gray Owls perched on top of a broken tree. There are three chicks, but one is a runt, significantly smaller than its siblings and at risk of starvation. And when the worst storms for years hit the Beartooth Mountains, Jeff wonders whether it can hang on. Even if it can, will all three chicks successfully fledge the nest before they overheat? Down on the Snake River the family of beavers is busy making the most of the Spring vegetation. Their winter larder is exhausted and the fresh supply of aspen leaves is a welcome feast. Infra red cameras give Jeff and host Kirk Johnson a secret view of life in the lodge, as the beavers squabble over food and do a spot of spring cleaning. Kirk dons a dry suit to head underwater to admire the engineering skills of these rodents. Massive boulders and branches are there to strengthen their dams, but will they be enough to withstand the thaw?
