Great Bear Stakeout
For five months a team from the BBC's Natural History Unit embedded itself in Katmai Alaska.
It's mission was to document the lives of the Grizzly Bears in this incredible habitat. From waking from hibernation through to mating season, the salmon run and their preparation for winter, they followed the fortunes of the bears that called this coast their home.
During those five months the team got to know the bears from up close. Documenting the mothers and cubs and their battle for survival and the males who competed with each other to be the dominant bears of Katmai.
