It did on this occasion and Daniel Zatz (Cineflex operator) and I were left stranded on a mountain top in the far northwest corner of Alaska as the fog rolled in after the helicopter left for another location. It was due to return to collect us but didn't show up. Our satellite battery was down to one bar, food was low, and we began to really take stock of the equipment we had with us. Fortunately I was a boy scout, so I'm always prepared. In this clip you'll see me reviewing the situation and figuring out a game plan, just in case our ride doesn't come to pick us up."Nature joins adventurer and bear biologist Chris Morgan and filmmaker Joe Pontecorvo on a year-long motorcycle odyssey deep into Alaska's bear country to explore the amazing resiliency and adaptability of these majestic animals as they struggle to make a living in five dramatically diverse Alaskan ecosystems: coastal, urban, mountain, tundra, and pack ice."Bears of the Last Frontier" premieres on PBS Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 8pm and is part of the 29th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS.
