Preview – Mountain: Life At The Extreme

The Rockies

With breathtaking footage and photography, this documentary takes us to the most stunning mountain ranges in the world, revealing the animals and people that have made the mountain’s their home.

Tonight we’re in the Rockies in North America, the beautiful snow-capped peaks and valleys span for miles.

Cougars, wolves and grizzly bears hunt in the mountain meadows and Daredevil wingsuit fliers leap from mile-high cliffs and Native American tribes compete in breakneck horse races. The Rockies are also home to tiny cannibal salamanders hunting in mountain ponds and hummingbirds making enormous migrations.
