Upcoming TV specials on Yellowstone and Paradise Valley wolves

Here is the info on when the two documentaries we have been discussing will appear on television.

I want to thank skyrim for gathering it. He emailed the following to me:

Excerpt from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. . .


“Wolves in Paradise” will be aired on Montana PBS at 7 p.m. on Nov. 1 and on other public broadcasting stations afterward.

And . . .


Three days later, at 6 p.m. Sunday, Montana PBS will air the national premiere of another wolf documentary, “In the Valley of the Wolves,” by Gardiner-based producer Bob Landis.

The film will appear on the “Nature” program.

Landis spent more than three years tracking the Druid pack, and his film “is an intimate record of their lives and their great battles with rival wolf packs in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone.”

From http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/wolves/index.html

NATURE’s In the Valley of the Wolves premieres Sunday, November 4 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check your local listings).

    Oh good. I’m glad you already know about this, cousin Ralph. I just going to tell you. I work for a PBS station now and was putting publicity about these programs on our website. Hope to see you at Thanksgiving.

    In The Valley of Wolves airs on Rocky Mountain PBS (Denver) on Nov 4 at 7 pm. They don’t have a listing for Wolves in Paradise as yet.

    Speaking of Yellowstone wolves it seems the Hayden alpha female was somehow badly injured yesterday. She could be seen from the road badly bloodied.

    your site is still great, I love being able to check up on the wolves of the Lamar and the entire greater yellowstone area from all the way back here in Connecticut. its been almost 2 years since i last worked in the park and i happened to catch Bob Landis’ ” in the valley of the wolves” on pbs it was great to see # 302 stepping up. it brought back many great memories. I was wondering if you might know where i could purchase this on dvd, i havnt been able to find it online or anywhere else for that matter.
    Sincerely, Joe O’Reilly
