This beautiful series immerses the viewer in the nature of the northern extremities of Europe, beyond the Arctic Circle and into a land of ice and fire; from the Tundra and on to the Arctic Ocean. Wildest Arctic captures the awesome cinematic range of the Arctic region, from the crashes of vast glaciers, to the howls of the wildest wolves and the haunting remoteness of this true wilderness.
We find wolverines, lynx and leopards in the Taiga (Russian for “forest”); polar bears and whales in the Arctic Ocean; Arctic foxes and Atlantic puffins in Iceland; and follow the 2,000 mile migration of 500,000 caribou in the Tundra.
This is the arctic as you’ve never seen it before: surprisingly rich in wildlife and completely – beautifully – wild!
101: Arctic Ocean: The Frozen Sea
A year in the High Arctic, where during the winter, the sun doesn’t rise for months on end, creating perpetual night. But in the summer, the Arctic thaws out in an explosion of life.
102: Taiga: The Frozen Forests
This great forest spans right around the globe: across North America, Scandinavia, and extending across Siberia to the shores of the Pacific, sheltering some of the Earth’s most majestic animals, and some of its most secretive.
103: Tundra: Deserts of Ice
The piercing temperatures and powerful winds of the Tundra challenge even the hardiest of creatures. Life here must adapt or perish. The remarkable diversity of life in the Tundra includes the snowy owl, Arctic foxes, millions of migrating birds and the lemming.
104: Iceland: Land of Fire & Ice
Home to some of the planet’s rarest and most spectacular creatures and Iceland harbors some of the most extreme environments on Earth. Yet new land is forged every day in Iceland’s heart of fire.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
