High School - Planet Earth: Great Plains by BBC, Discovery Channel, and NHK
Trek to the Earth's largest land habitats, where vast open spaces play host to the biggest groups of animals in the world. Following the immense migrations of caribou across the Arctic tundra and wildebeest through the African savannah, the program details life on Earth?s varied plains: dodging predators, mating and raising young, and, in many grassland habitats, the constant search for water. A pride of hungry lions hunting elephants and a stealthy Arctic fox chasing snow geese reveal some of the boldest hunts on the planet, and battles between Mongolian wild donkeys for mates illustrate the harsh competition for resources, even in temperate climates.
