Abstract:

"We're trying to imagine what it was like to be the very first people to arrive on the continent almost 14,000 years ago," explains series producer, Miles Barton. This is the first attempt in television to discover the landscape and wildlife of America after the last Ice Age. The series features amazing re-animations of such animals as the sabre-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth and, using computer graphics, returns lions, cheetahs and zebras to North America where they lived thousands of years ago. This look at the past provides a unique perspective on North American wildlife of today, including those creatures who now depend upon people and cities for their survival. First of a six-part series revealing the spectacular wildlife of Ice Age North America, as the first people to enter this vast continent would have seen it. Evidence uncovered from today's landscapes is used to build a picture of the prehistoric past. In the far north there was a land which doesn't exist today, where huge beasts roamed the icy steppes. A mummified bison carcass yields clues to its Ice Age killer. Could it have been a pack of wolves, a giant short faced bear or a huge American lion? As the day in the life of prehistoric North America continues there are further exciting encounters. A pair of bull woolly mammoths clash on the icy wastes. A giant short faced bear challenges a herd of well armed musk oxen. And a family of woolly mammoths defend their baby from huge American lions.
