WILDLIFE -- King of the Prairie: Bison

In the middle of the North American continent, across a prairie stretching 3,000 kilometers from north to south, live the awesome American bison. Also known as the buffalo, these impressive animals are familiar to many from old western movies.
Although some 60 million bison once dominated the prairies, they were at one time hunted almost to extinction. This program paints a portrait of the lives of the bison through the changing seasons of this beautiful land.
