To make NORTH AMERICA, film crews crisscrossed the vast continent for three years. With over 2,800 days in the field covering eight countries and twenty-nine U.S. states, this series reveals the full wonders of the North American continent as never before. Many of these shoots required exceptional skill and pushed the crews to the limits, whether filming hugely elusive animals like jaguars and mountain lions, getting close to battling bison, or trekking across the Rockies’ bone-chilling peaks in the middle of winter in search of mountain goats. The most dangerous mission of all was when one team went head-to-head with Hurricane Irene, one of the biggest storms of the decade.
