The Yellowstone is one of the most remarkable places on the planet. It's home to North America's most iconic wildlife and every year these animals must survive The Thaw - one of the harshest seasonal changes on Earth. Temperatures swing from minus 40 Celsius in the winter to approaching 40 plus in the summer months.
To understand how the animals cope and to witness the effects of our changing climate, this series follows the Thaw during 2016, a year when it's believed the unpredictable weather broke new records.
Presenters Kate Humble and Patrick Aryee are joined by a team of scientists and wildlife cameramen. They capture the wildlife dramas as they unfold and analyse the impact on individual animal families of wolves, grizzly bears, beavers and great grey owls.

It's summer - and the Yellowstone beavers have a new challenge.
Will the young survive as the river dries up and the colony is forced to move home? As food becomes scarce wolves have a surprising strategy to keep their pups fed and grizzly bears are unexpected visitors on a cowboy ranch.
By midsummer the hot dry conditions create a new danger - deadly wildfires burn out of control and threaten to engulf a family of great grey owls. 2016 was the hottest year on earth since records began, and across Yellowstone scientists reveal the effects of rising temperatures on the animals that live here.
