Nature

Description

PBS's signature (and multi-award-winning) natural-history series uses gifted wildlife documentarians and stunning photography to reveal what its first host, Donald Johanson, called `the magic and mystery of the fascinating natural world.' The series has garnered numerous prizes, including the Sierra Club Award; and both an Emmy and a Peabody in 1987 for `A Season in the Sun,' a memorable portrait of East Africa by Alan and Joan Root. Its first show was the lyrical `Flight of the Condor.'
