National Geographic: Giant Bears of Kodiak Island
Kodiac Island in the Gulf of Alaska is home to the amazing Kodiak bears, cousins of the grizzly, which reach an astounding 1,500 pounds. This National Geographic documentary follows the development of the tiny cubs until they become 2 year olds. Then their mothers reject them and they must follow a tough life of survival. Eventually the bears learn to feast on salmon and to call truces during mating season. Encounters with humans nearby often lead to tragic consequences, as foraging bears are fatally shot by locals. Most of the island is a bear refuge, with the remainder belonging to Native Americans since 1970. But the encroachment of some unapproved housing on bear habitat suggests that humans are still wresting with how to share the island peaceably. ~ Gayla Mills, Rovi

National Geographic: American Serengeti
Filmed over the course of two years, this documentary from National Geographic takes a look at the landscape of the American Great Plains, once an epic grassland explored by Lewis and Clark, now an ecosystem in danger, and the subject of a grand conservation project. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

National Geographic: Great White Odyssey
Shark experts tag a great white and track its movements for 99 days. ~ Karen Kelty, Rovi

National Geographic: Eden at the End of the World
Travel to the southernmost point of South America, to the spot where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet, and you'll find a place called Patagonia that many folks often compare to the Garden of Eden. Sadly, the misguided actions of man nearly destroyed this sub-Antarctic region, and Patagonia is only beginning to recover from some serious environmental damage. For those who wondered if they'd ever get a good look at Patagonia, the filmmakers at National Geographic take viewers on a wondrous journey to this so-called "Eden at the End of the World." ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
