Bear Family & Me


Season 1, Episode 3 of 3

In this absorbing series, experienced wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan learns how to 'walk with bears' with Lynn Rogers, a pioneering biologist, to get as close as can be to these often fearsome beasts. Over the course of a year, the pair follow cheeky young bear Lily, her mother June and their new cubs as they emerge from hibernation in the Minnesota Northwoods to begin their feeding, courting and mating cycle. The rewards are huge as Gordon gains the trust of Lily and June and captures the emerging personalities of the individual cubs to give a captivating insight into the life of the black bear.
