Plot Synopsis

NATURE is a series of one-hour documentaries that highlight various animals and ecosystems -- everything from stallions to black mambas to Arctic bears to housecats and everywhere from the edge of the world's most active volcano (Kilauea) to the top of the earth's largest waterfall (Victoria Falls). The series has won more than 600 honors from the television industry, parent groups, the international wildlife film community and environmental organizations, including 10 Emmys, three Peabodys and the first award given to a television program by the Sierra Club. In October of 2010, the series won the Christopher Parsons Outstanding Achievement Award, given to "an organization or individual that has made a globally significant contribution to wildlife filmmaking, conservation and/or the public's understanding of the environment." The award, given by the Wildscreen Festival in Bristol, England, is one of the wildlife film industry's highest honors. The program's 32nd season debuted on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 8pm on PBS, with a season opener, "Saving Otter 501," documenting how the Monterey Bay Aquarium made its 501st attempt to save an orphan otter, while showing how its otter rehab program has developed over the past few decades. NATURE returned for its 33rd season on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at 8pm on PBS. The season opener, "Animal Misfits," reveals some surprising details about how evolution really works, demonstrating that all animals are remarkably well-adapted to their chosen way of life -- even if some odd, bizarre and unlikely creatures seem ill-equipped for survival. Other upcoming episodes in Season 33 include: "Big Thinkers of the Forest," "A Sloth Named Velcro," "Invasion of the Killer Whales," and "The Animal Home Show." PBS premiered the 34th season of NATURE on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 8pm (check local listings). Season 34 kicks of with a two-part story that profiles how rescue centers raise and rehabilitate nature's wild baby orphans, giving them a second chance at life. The season opener, "Nature's Miracle Orphans," follows the work of animal rescue centers around the world and introduces the extraordinary people who have devoted their lives to helping all sorts of wild orphans get back on their feet. It follows the different stages of caring for these little heroes, from rescuing and tending to young babies in the early stages of life, to teaching them how to look after themselves, and finally looking to the future when, hopefully, they will one day be released back into the wild. Part 2 premiered one week later. Subsequent episodes include: "Big Birds Can't Fly"; "Soul of the Elephant"; "Pets: Wild at Heart"; and more. Season 35 of NATURE premiered on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at 8pm on PBS (check local listings). The season opener, "Super Hummingbirds," is narrated by actress Patricia Clarkson, as Emmy-winning filmmaker Ann Johnson Prum returns with her second film on hummers. For the first time, this new documentary reveals how the birds mate, lay eggs, fight, and raise families. Subsequent documentaries in the 35th season include: "My Congo"; "Giraffes: Africa's Gentle Giants"; "The Story of Cats (Part 1): Asia to Africa"; "The Story of Cats (Part 2): Into the Americas"; and many more.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The upcoming season of NATURE will include "H is for Hawk: A New Chapter," a new episode that premieres Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 8pm (check local listings). Helen MacDonald's international best-selling book "H Is for Hawk" told the story of a grieving daughter who found healing in the form of Mabel, a goshawk. The goshawk is one of Mother Nature's own fighter jets, capable of finding and killing its prey with tremendous speed. For the first time after Mabel's death, MacDonald tries again to train another one of these secretive birds of prey and intimately explore their lives in the wild forests they call home.
