Nature - Pets: Wild at Heart
Wednesdays, June 20 at 8:00pm and June 27 at 8:30pm
From the award-winning team that brought us "Earthflight" and "Penguins: Spy in the Huddle" comes a revolutionary look at our pets. Our pets may seem familiar but they exist alongside us in a secret world of wild behavior and natural abilities that we hardly recognize. This two-part series explores this parallel existence with all the techniques that have been perfected in past “spy” shows, including HD spy cameras, night vision cameras, drones, miniature on-board cameras and digital high-speed cameras.
NATURE has been the benchmark of natural history programs on television, capturing the splendors of the natural world from the African plains to the Antarctic ice. The series has won more than 600 honors from the television industry, parent groups, the international wildlife film community and environmental organizations, including Emmys, Peabodys and the first award given to a television program by the Sierra Club.
