If you’re a fan of the Grizzly Bear then you wont want to miss this great 2 part series starting tomorrow on BBC 1 at 21:00hrs and the second part on Thursday 25th April at 21:00hrs.

Three Bear experts are in Alaska following the grizzlies – Chris Morgan, Brad Josephs and Buck Wilde.

In the first episode we meet Parsnip, a first time grizzly mum and her young cub Pushki. Only half of new bear cubs make it through the season, and they are both struggling to survive in the vast Alaskan wilderness.
This area is ruled by a massive male Van and his partner Alice, a prized female bear with an aggressive and sinister side. Hungry adult bears will kill cubs, so Parsnip`s summer is full of unexpected adventure, she has to escape Van`s clutches and learn from her mistakes if she and her cub are to survive the season.

In the second episode, the world-famous salmon run arrives in Alaska. The bears must catch hundreds of these fish if they are to bulk up and survive the harsh winter months. We discover that young grizzly mum Parsnip and her cub Pushki have returned to the bay to feed on the salmon. But predatory adult bears will kill cubs and, with fierce competition, Parsnip must protect her cub and learn the skills of fishing if they are to both make it through hibernation.
