Whether you think bears are cute or terrifying, could you imagine living with them?

That's what a group of filmmakers have done for new BBC documentary, Great Bear Stakeout.

They set up camp in Alaska, which is home to thirty thousand grizzly bears, following their day to day lives for five months.

Ricky has been speaking to the Executive Producer of the documentary, Vanessa Berlowitz.

Great Bear Stakeout is repeated on BBC One at 4.35pm on Sunday 28 April (episode 1) and Sunday 5 May (episode 2).
