I've already got it set to be recorded Kathy. It looks like being a belter. I've recently invested in HD, so that should be excellent. Thanks for thinking about us.

Missed it last night, silly me thought that it was on at 9pm.........so, recorded the repeat this evening and have just finished watching it. Excellent programme. Absolutley loved the otters, they looked as though they were swimming in all that snow!

If anyone wants to follow the seasons at Yellowstone around Old Faithful geyser, then go to http://www.nps.gov/archive/yell/oldfaithfulcam.htm. The picture updates every 30 seconds and soon they will be giving prediction times for the next eruption. Also, there will be stats about the temperature when the predictions resume. Sometimes you can get lucky and see the bison wandering around in shot.

Bring on the next programme!

Me too!

I was trying to work out how the cameraman (men?) managed to be in the right places to apparently get that action from so many viewpoints.

Was it just pure luck that they 'chanced' upon this event, or was there some fantastic planning behind it?

Whatever it was, they made a superb job of it, and I can't wait for the next episode.

(BTW, I managed to get my own first video footage of wild Otters just 2 weeks back, on Bassenthwaite Lake. I was so chuffed, I didn't stop grinning for days )

hi Wendy

Glad that you enjoyed the programme a lot. Super coverage was it not. The Otters looked strange moving through the snow, as we always used to seeing them in water or around water all of the time.

Looked at your additional link, Wendy, and it is very interesting indeed. Will have another look or two yet no doubt (I will add to favs). Love to see what is going on there!

My Godmother visited there years ago and I have a track top with Yellowstone written on it. Great memories and my godmother enjoyed herself a lot too.

Got the right time this week!!!

Another excellent programme. The colours of summer are amazing, but so short lived. Loved the Hummers and Bluebirds and fascinated by the bears going up on to the scree slopes to get the moths....pretty incredible really.

Do you think that I've left it too late to become a Geyser Gazer?!!!! I could happily spend hours watching them.

Hi Wendy

Geyser Gazers, well you never know Wendy. Could be new thing we could all do. They are very thereputic on the mind. They keep us on our toes too.

Watched the second part of Yellowstone tonight, and really enjoyed it a lot.

There where some interesting parts of the program about Hummingbirds how they cope with living at Yellowstone in the cold months. Some shots of a Blue Bird feeding its young and a Woodpecker of some type.

Some superb shots of an Osprey, and again some shots of birds which remained nameless. Oh I wish they said what they where.
I am sure i could hear a Ravens calls through a good bit of thr program. There where other twitterings of birds which we could hear but not see. No doubt someone will know what they are.

The Otters and the Bears where well portrayed with their babies. Even in the so called warmer months life is never that easy for any of the wildlife that exists in the park itself. Tough and robust comes to mind.
The Rodents, Elks, Pronghorn, Bison and the Wolfs super viewing once more

The last 10 mins was given The Geyser Gazers well that is a different hobby to have! Mmm not sure what that was about at all.

Anyway, here is the link to BBC I-player.

Found last night's episode a bit disappointing, possibly because there was not much about the physical state of the park and a lot about elk, bison and pronghorns....none of which do a great deal for me! We didn't even get to see the bears heading for hibernation or where the lovely otters went.

Probably just me, I like wild places better than I like wildlife (birds excepted!).
