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. America's Ice Age plains - home to a menagerie of giant beasts. A land where herds of female Columbian mammoths grazed the rich meadows and 10-ton males fought for dominance - sometimes to the death. Where high-speed cheetahs chased down antelopes at over 60 mph and packs of wolves over-powered 2-ton bison. Meet the largest mammalian flesh-eater ever - the giant short-faced bear - which challenged prides of American lions for their prey. Welcome to the American Serengeti! This dramatic series reveals 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.
