Australia is notable as the only country that is also a continent, but details of the Land Down Under aren't necessarily as well known as other areas around the world. This miniseries delves into some of the various species of animals that call Australia home. The cassowary, tree-kangaroo, dingo (keep an eye on your babies), echidna and platypus are among the creatures profiled on "Wild Australia," which also looks at the varied environments where the wildlife lives.

Actor James Norton narrates a series exploring America's iconic Wild West, known for its legends and synonymous with Hollywood productions. Miles of desert landscapes, redwood forests and extreme coastlines make up the topography, shaping the lives of the wildlife and inhabitants of the area. Filmed over a two-year period, the camerapeople use the latest technology to capture the location from land, air and sea. Episodes discover the animals and plants that have adapted to life on the sand dunes, including mustangs, coyotes, desert tortoises and cacti.
"Wild Scotland" is a four-part nature documentary narrated by Ewan McGregor. Filming takes place over the course of a year as the Highlands are captured during each season. Episodes reveal how the wildlife, animals and local communities adapt to the changing and often unforgiving climate. Episodes take viewers north of the fault line from Arran through to the Cairngorms and out to the magnificent northern seascapes. Spring marks an unpredictable time for the animals in the Cairngorms as Ospreys, red squirrels, dippers, roe deer and bottlenose dolphins struggle against harsh winds to find food for their young.
Chris Barnes has a large and unusual family. The Australian is `mum' to nearly 30 kangaroos that he cares for around the clock. That seems to explain his nickname, Brolga, which is an aboriginal word for stork. Brolga spends his days rescuing and raising orphaned joeys, some of which are so tiny and fragile that they require constant care. Brolga provides the marsupials with everything they need -- including food, love and even a makeshift pouch. He spends months preparing the animals so they can eventually be released into their natural habitat and live a more normal life.
Not all animals are meant to be domesticated and kept as household pets. Many wild animals, by definition, are rough and rowdy, often leading to out-of-bounds behavior or savage instincts run amok. This series showcases jaw-dropping moments captured by cameras, including attacks on people and other animals, "believe it or not" encounters, and animals that portray human traits. Heroic acts of bravery, narrow escapes and unpredictable incidents are also featured in the hourlong episodes.
