From the makers of the acclaimed BBC series Human Planet and Canada's top wildlife filmmaking team, Wild Canada is an epic narrative through time and across the vast scale of the Canadian landscape. This spectacular four-part series on the wildlife and the wild lands of Canada reveals our country in a way that few have ever seen before. Canada's natural history is one of the last unexplored territories on the global television landscape. Underlying the series is an epic narrative through time and across the vast Canadian landscape. New research reveals that many of Canada's fabulous natural landscapes are the direct result of ancient human activity. Each episode tells two parallel stories: the natural history of Canada, and how past humans shaped Canada's landscape and the wildlife spectacles we see today. Just 15,000 years ago all of Canada lay beneath a layer of ice over 1000 meters thick. Under the ice nothing lived: it was only when the ice began to melt that the land was exposed - and then invaded by an array of colonizing plants and animals, including one rather special mammal...Homo sapiens. When the first Europeans sailed to the eastern shores of eastern Canada, they found an unexplored, pristine wilderness. Or so they thought. We follow those first European explorers as they pushed westwards - and re-discover this land through fresh eyes. It is the story of a remarkable land where humans have made their mark over millennia in surprising ways. Each of the four episodes is a fabulous natural history spectacle about Canadian wildlife and wilderness.

This is a fantastic series. A must-watch for every Canadian.
Great so far
Very well executed so far (I'm one episode in) great cinematography crystal clear and fluid shots, a true testament to what canada has to offer. Also make sure you download the companion App also very well done
Beautiful, considerate, perfectly timed.
I'm proud to live in Canada surrounded by such beautiful landscapes and plant and wildlife. As our federal government defunds science and promotes resource excavation, this is a perfectly timed, considerate and eloquent series that supports First Nations, ecology, and environmentalism. From the migratory patterns of humpback whales, to the cultivation of black oaks in Ontario, to the arctic tundra (a historically lush grassland where mammoths once roamed), to artificial clam gardens on the west coast (dating back half a millennium); it's brilliant. It's a beautiful reminder of why I love this country, but sadly, also a reminder of what we stand to lose
