A new television mini-series airing next month will focus on the world’s first national Park.
Filmed over three years, the Smithsonian Channel’s “Epic Yellowstone” program will be shown in four parts starting on March 10 at 7 p.m. The films are narrated by actor Bill Pullman.
The project used state-of-the art 8K cameras, thermal imagery, drone timelapse, cineflex aerials and miniature nest cameras to reveal the world of Yellowstone’s predators and prey. David Royle, of Smithsonian Networks, said in a press release that developments in new technology have enabled them to capture moments never before seen.
In the lead-up to the series, the Smithsonian Channel will also premiere an all-new episode of “Aerial America” focusing on Yellowstone on March 3 at 7 p.m. The first episode of the series, “Fire and Ice,” will showcase the park’s toughest inhabitants who remain year-round, and tells stories of survival in Yellowstone during winter.
“Epic Yellowstone” was produced by Bozeman-based Grizzly Creek Films.
