The Nature of Things – The Wild Canadian Year (2017) 1of5 Spring

CBC The Wild Canadian Year 1of5 Spring
From the creators of the acclaimed series WILD CANADA, comes a new five-part legacy series, which will view Canada’s extraordinary wildlife through the lens of its four distinct seasons.

The seasonality of the weather on our planet defines and drives the lives of every creature on earth. Humans, plants and wildlife must navigate the changing conditions they face as a result of our planet’s annual trip around the sun. But in some places the effects of the seasons are especially pronounced – one of those places is Canada.

Lightning storms and tornados whipping across the Canadian prairies, secret worlds buried beneath the snow, polar bears hunting in the open summer waters of Hudson Bay, a bizarre animal that lives underground and has 28 tentacles around its mouth instead of eyes, frogs that actually freeze solid in the winter – miraculously coming back to life year after year each spring, and lynx that walk on snow chasing their elusive quarry through the northern forests – THE WILD CANADIAN YEAR will showcase the most amazing and rare natural wonders of Canada.

Part 1: Spring
The first days of spring sees Arctic fox pups take their first steps and black bear cubs learn to climb trees after the long cold days of winter while female caribou make the dangerous trek to reach their calving grounds.


Part 2: Summer
Killer whales and blue sharks are on the hunt and amorous fireflies light up the night forest with their dazzling display as summer reveals Canada’s landscape at the peak of its splendor.


Part 3: Fall
Fall chronicles a remarkable season of change – young northern gannets leap off perilous cliffs as chipmunks race to gather winter supplies, and prairie rattlesnakes give birth to live young.


Part 4: Winter
Lynx hunt snowshoe hares in the boreal forest and the ancient dance between wolves and caribou on Canada’s vast tundra reveal the harshest time of year when landscapes are transformed by the cruel and dramatic beauty of snow and ice.

Part 6: Making
The first days of spring sees Arctic fox pups take their first steps and black bear cubs learn to climb trees after the long cold days of winter while female caribou make the dangerous trek to reach their calving grounds.
