Wild Alaska Live is a three part series broadcast live across a week and will showcase one of the greatest wildlife spectacles from one of the remotest corners of Earth.
Viewers will be taken on a live adventure, as the crew broadcasts from across the vast wildernesses of Alaska, one of the last and best places in the world to see these spectacular animals in all their glory.
Steve Backshall, Matt Baker and Liz Bonnin will be there at the most crucial time of year for Alaskan wildlife; the annual salmon run triggers the start of a remarkable summer feast as black bears, brown bears, Kodiak bears, orca, humpback whales, salmon, beavers, salmon sharks, walrus, wolves and many others gather for a summer feast like no other on the planet.

The Feast Reaches Climax
Episode 1x3; Jul 30, 2017
A look at the impact of the feast across the vast state of Alaska. What does the future hold for our characters?
If our predictions are right, salmon should have arrived, in their millions. Liz Bonnin will be live at Katmai National Park to witness bears and if we're really lucky, wolves running up and down the rivers chasing after salmon. If there's enough fish these two top predators will happily eat side by side, but you never know what will happen when they meet.
Steve Backshall will be on board a boat heading to the epicentre of the marine feast, on the trail of orcas and humpbacks. This is the only place in the world where humpbacks perform bubble netting, a spectacular feeding behaviour where they perform synchronised dives, blowing bubbles as they rise, before erupting on the surface to catch fish.
Matt Baker will be at the salmon finishing line, the end point of their incredible migration where they undergo incredible body changes from silver to red, their entire shape shifts and the males compete in violent fights. This is what our black bear family has been waiting for, and we will follow the cubs as they try to catch their first fish.
The team goes on an expedition to the wilds of Kodiak Island, in search of the world's largest land predator - the legendary Kodiak bear. It's make or break for one fisherman, who depends on this week for his entire year's salary.
