The Great Bear Stake­out with Billy Con­nolly

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 6.30pm, Ten A tele­vi­sion crew with spe­cially de­signed re­mote cam­eras spent five months in a re­mote and hos­tile part of Alaska to film this two-part se­ries on griz­zly bears; Billy Con­nolly’s warm and funny nar­ra­tion adds an ex­tra di­men­sion. But if you thought bears were just great big cud­dly-wud­dleys, this will change your mind. Their be­hav­iour can be any­thing but cute, es­pe­cially when love is in the air. As win­ter ap­proaches, they must fo­cus on the salmon runs that will pro­vide them with the bulk they’ll need to get through hi­ber­na­tion. Parsnip re­turns to the main­land from an is­land where she sought pro­tec­tion with her cub, but her fish­ing skills are not up to scratch and Van, a mean ol’ bull, has his eye on the cub. Mother Na­ture, take a bow.
