'Nature: Arctic Wolf Pack'
(DVD / PG / 2018 / PBS)
Overview: At the very northern edge of North America is Ellesmere Island, where the unforgiving Arctic winds tear through the tundra, dipping temperatures to 40 below zero. Discover the White Wolf, one of the most hardened predators on the planet in the Ellesmere's unforgiving ice and snow.
DVD Verdict: 'Nature: Arctic Wolf Pack' is another Top 10 documentary of this year from PBS, in my book. Here they take you out into the middle of nowhere, knee deep within the Arctic with frost and subzero temperatures eight months out of the year abounding.
And for our pleasure, our viewing requirements, those men and women that brave those temps manage to capture so many great cinematic scenes of wolf families with so much drama that you wonder if the wolves themselves were in on it from the very start!
'NOVA: Arctic Wolf Pack' is an absolutely divine look into the lives of these creatures and also comes complete with some delightful, and perfect musical backing. Also, it should be noted that the narration by Campbell Scott was brilliant and fits in perfectly to what we view.
In closing, Director Oliver Goetzl has given us a splendid look into these wolves and how when they are traveling farther and farther away from their den each day, that it puts these hunters and their children at risk in this fight for survival.
