Series covering one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet, live from the Alaskan wilderness, with Steve Backshall, Matt Baker and Liz Bonnin.

Matt will introduce us to one adorable black bear family with three cubs during one of the most important weeks of their young lives. Liz will be in one of the remotest locations in the whole of Alaska, living right amongst the largest protected population of brown bears in the world.
