Documentary following horse whisperer Buck Brannaman from a painful childhood to his inspiring work as a trainer. It may be the stuff of Hollywood legend, but the cowboy who inspired the novel and film is very real. Buck - master horseman, raconteur and philosopher - is a no-excuses cowboy who travels the world sharing a hard-won wisdom that is often more about human relationships than about horses. As Buck says, 'Often instead of helping people with horse problems, I'm helping horses with people problems.' He possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses - and people - with his deep understanding, compassion and respect.
Experience the incredible and inspiring rebirth of an African wilderness through the eyes of an Emmy Award®-winning wildlife cameraman. American-born, African-raised Bob Poole embarks on an amazing adventure: spending two years living in the million-acre paradise of Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park, joining scientists and conservationists in the battle to re-wild this once-legendary nature preserve. Restoring the fabric of life in the park after a long civil war is one of the most ambitious wilderness restoration projects ever attempted. This is no ordinary filming assignment for Poole, as he combines his passion for conservation with his career filming the world's beautiful but vulnerable wild animals. He helps scientists dart and track the park's elusive lions, decodes the behavior of the park's angry elephants, wrestles and studies massive crocs, and helps truck in herds of animals to replace the ones that were lost during the war. In addition to stunning images of Africa's iconic wildlife, Poole shares firsthand one of the most exciting conservation stories happening in the world today.
