    Brown bear

    Brown bear at Katmai National Park.
    Alaska contains about 98% of the U.S. brown bear population and 70% of the total North American population. An estimated 30,000 brown bears live in Alaska. Of that number, about 1,450 are harvested by hunters yearly. [Documentary]

    Black bear

    The black bear is much smaller than the brown bear. They are found in larger numbers on the mainland of Alaska, but are not found on the islands off of the Gulf of Alaska and the Seward Peninsula. Black bears have been seen in Alaska in a few different shades of colors such as black, brown, cinnamon, and even a rare blue shade. They are widely scattered over Alaska, and pose more of a problem to humans because they come in close contact with them on a regular basis. They are considered a nuisance because they frequently stroll through local towns, camps, backyards, and streets because of their curiosity and easy food sources such as garbage. Black bears are big dangerous animals that attack when bothered or hungry. As many as 100,000 black bears live in Alaska.

    Polar bear

    Polar bears on the Beaufort Sea coast.
    Alaska's polar bear populations are concentrated along its Arctic coastlines. In the winter, they are most common in the Kuskokwim Delta, St. Matthew Island, and at the southernmost portion of St. Lawrence Island. During the summer months, they migrate to the coastlines of the Arctic Ocean and the Chukchi Sea. There are two main polar bear populations in Alaska. The Chukchi population is found off in the western part of Alaska near the Wrangell Islands, and the Beaufort Sea population is located near Alaska’s North Slope. [Documentary]

  • The Salmon Forest | Tongass National Forest - Alaska Nature Documentary

    30:23

    The Salmon Forest is a 30-minute documentary film that explores the connection between
    wild salmon and life in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the United States.

    The film follows Alaskan salmon on their epic migration from the streams of the forest to the ocean and back, revealing the various lives they impact along the way.
    Pull in a huge catch with commercial fishermen, explore the breathtaking landscapes that draw in millions, watch as a mother bear lunges into a stream to feed her cubs, visit a native Tlingit community to better understand salmon’s cultural significance, and meet the people who work day and night to ensure this public resource is protected for generations to come.
    Filmed in stunning high definition, The Salmon Forest highlights one of the last healthy homes for salmon on Earth, and provokes a deeper understanding of this complex and beautiful ecosystem.

    Ultimately, this film celebrates the unique role public lands play in salmon production and reminds us that proper management is vital to sustain the future of commercial fisheries, subsistence, recreation, and our forests.

    Alaskan adventure with the world through Bears of the Last Frontier. It has been quite the journey. The film has been nearly two years in the making, and for both of us it has become an unforgettable part of our lives. Over the course of a year and a half we traveled well over 3000 miles across Alaska and shot 500 hours of footage for this epic three-hour PBS Nature series. We spent many, many months in bear country – piecing together the lives of these fascinating animals by observing and filming them, and by living in bear country, among the animals and people that share bear habitat.

  • Wild Alaska- Full Documentary

    25:01

    ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES |

    ▶ Spanish video:
    Alaska, at the northernmost tip of America. 1,530,700 square kilometres encompassing more than one half of the protected lands of the United States, make this country’s 49th state a natural paradise.
    Alaska is divided into three large regions: the mountains of the Pacific along the meridional coast, the central plains and plateaus bathed by the Yukon River and the northern slope or septentrional arctic zone, a land of ice, cold and tundra.
    The climatic conditions of the extreme north are very harsh. The summers have no night-time; they are cool and short, while the winters are long, dark and very cold. For eight months of the year the average temperatures are below 0ºC. These regions are the domain of the tundra, a word taken from the Finnish “tunturi” which means “treeless plain”. Under the surface layer, the subsoil remains frozen all year long. This permafrost precludes the development of trees and the only vegetation supported are small creeping plants, low-growing shrubs, herbaceous plants, mosses and lichens.
    Further inland, the change in vegetation marks the border between the tundra and the conifers of the taiga forest. This is a transitional strip of land where many of the tree species are shrub sized due to the tense conditions under which they develop, while the shrubs, lichens and mosses of the tundra persist.


    The tundra’s harsh winter climate has also forced the animals inhabiting the region to develop survival strategies and the species must choose from three alternatives: they either migrate to avoid the winter, hide themselves away until the warm weather arrives or confront the climate openly with special physiological adaptations.

    Musk deer fall within the last group. They have short legs, sturdy bodies and a layer of thick, long hair which minimises the loss of body heat. They also have a subcutaneous fat layer which builds up during the summer months and is used as an energy reserve during the long winter season.


    The arrival of the thaw is the commencement of a period of abundance.
    The animals come out of their winter lethargy, there are new pastures for herbivores to graze on and the entire community finds food easily.
    Spring is also the time when many animals bring their young into the world. Some, such as the caribou, migrate from the taiga to the northern tundra, while others such as the wapiti remain under the shelter of the conifer forest taking advantage of the explosion of vegetable matter to replenish the fat lost during the winter.
    In early June, Alaskan rivers are the scene of the arrival of different species of salmon, thousands of which return from their stay in the ocean to spawn and die in the waters where they were born.


    Alaska is a land of bears. There are between 4,000 and 6,000 polar bears, more than 50,000 black bears and between 35,000 and 45,000 brown bears which, although they belong to the same species as the European brown bear, are larger in America. Here in Alaska the subspecies known as the Kodiak bear is the largest of them all; an animal which can grow as tall as 4 metres and weight up to 1,200 kilos.
    The mountains play an important role in the water cycle and therefore in the gradual transformation of the landscape.

    The fishing and forest industry are the two pillars of the state’s economy which are directly dependent on nature. Several fishing villages in the fjords live on the salmon they fish and therefore on the ecological health of the water and marine beds. It was only thanks to government assistance that they were able to survive the years following the Exxon Valdez tragedy and even today they note that the ecosystem has not fully recovered.
    When the base of the ecological chain is damaged, the entire system suffers the consequences. The most visible animals such as fish or fowl return gradually, but without the basis of the food pyramid their populations decrease and the animals are weaker and less developed.

    Alaska is privileged to have a low population density. It is therefore one of the last virgin territories where nature is still seen in its wild state. But it is a fragile paradise floating amidst a great oil reserve, making its future dependent on man taking the correct actions. It will be necessary for an understanding and appreciation of the incalculable ecological value of this land to take precedence over quick economic profits in order for Alaska to continue as the final frontier for future generations.

  • Alaskan Killer Shark - Nature Documentary

    44:59

    Alaskan Killer Shark - Nature Documentary (HD)

    Once a year, one of Nature's great spectacles takes place on the northernmost coast of the Gulf of Alaska. It is a predestined collision of two massive migrations -- a David and Goliath event -- when thousands of ravenous salmon sharks gather to attack millions of Pacific salmon. The salmon are desperately trying to reach their spawning grounds in Prince William Sound. The sharks are there to gorge themselves. But sharks? In Alaska? Of the nearly 500 known sharks in the world, this is the only large, agile shark equipped to ply these icy waters. This shark is warm-blooded! In the end, the salmon run on an urgency born of their need to reproduce while the sharks run on...hunger. This one-hour spectacular travels with the salmon shark and the salmon in the most revealing portrait ever of this rarely filmed, little known shark: Alaska's Icy Killer.

Believe it or not, Bob was VERY nervous when we first began the videos. However, right when we began speaking his passion came forward and he did a great job. A huge pet peeve of mine is fake reality RV. There are plenty of scripted Alaska shows out there, this is the real deal.

  • Living on the Land in Alaska: Two Stories

    29:16

    Excerpt from Alaska Review 50. In this segment, Alaska Review explores the lives of those pursuing subsistence and self-sufficient lifestyles in Alaska despite outside pressures from a quickly changing world and the availability of new tools and methods for hunting and gathering and producing energy. Program contains images and interviews that appeared in several earlier Alaska Review programs. Those interviewed include: Arnold Brower, whaling captain; John Evak, subsistence hunter; Juanita Melsheimer of English Bay; Bobby Kuasnikoff of English Bay; Walter Charlie of the Lake Louise area; L. Jolson? of Kachemak City; Judy Theringer and Daniel Breslaw, subsistence fishermen; and Everett and Diane Drashner, homesteaders. Program contains views of Point Hope singers and dancers, a Point Hope whaling celebration, people pulling in fish nets at Bishop Mountain near Galena, scenes at a fish camp, harvesting of fish at English Bay, an Alaskan garden, and a self-sufficient homestead south of Fairbanks. (Sound/Color/1-inch videotape).

    Airing from 1976 to 1987, Alaska Review was the first statewide public affairs television program in Alaska. The show was designed to explore public policy issues confronting Alaska, and to assist citizens in making decisions about the future of their land. Produced by Independent Public Television, Inc., (IPTV), the series eventually consisted of 16 one-hour shows, 46 half-hour shows, and one three-hour special broadcast. Funded through the Alaska Humanities Forum and State of Alaska, the series won multiple awards for public service and educational programming. IPTV dissolved in 1988. Videotapes for all finished productions and raw footage were later moved to the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), where they became housed with the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives department in the Rasmuson Library at UAF, shortly after the unit was founded in 1993. The Alaska Film Archives is currently seeking funding to preserve and digitize all of the original full interviews gathered in the making of the Alaska Review series. Copies of finished productions are also held by Alaska State Library Historical Collections in Juneau. For more information, please contact the Alaska Film Archives at University of Alaska Fairbanks.

    This sequence contains excerpts from AAF-4995 from the Alaska Review collection held by the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives Department in the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks.

  • Alaska Salvaje. Documental Completo

    25:01

    ▶ TODOS NUESTROS DOCUMENTALES COMPLETOS AQUÍ:
    ▶ English video:
    Alaska, el extremo norte de América. 1.530.700 km2. que albergan más de la mitad de las tierras protegidas de los Estados Unidos, convierten al estado número 49 en un paraíso para la naturaleza.

    Alaska está dividida en tres grandes regiones: las montañas del Pacífico, a lo largo de la costa meridional, las llanuras y mesetas centrales que baña el río Yukón y la vertiente norte o zona ártica septentrional, un territorio de hielos, frío y tundra.
    Las condiciones climáticas del extremo norte son muy duras. Los veranos carecen de noches y son frescos y muy cortos, mientras los inviernos son largos, oscuros y muy fríos. Durante ocho meses al año las medias diarias son por debajo de 0ºC. Estas regiones son el dominio de la tundra, palabra que proviene del finés “tunturi” que significa “llanura desprovista de árboles”. Por debajo de la capa superficial el suelo permanece helado todo el año. Este permafrost impide el desarrollo de los árboles y sólo crecen pequeñas plantas rastreras, arbustos bajos, plantas herbáceas, musgos y líquenes.
    Hacia el interior, el cambio en la vegetación marca la frontera entre la tundra y los bosques de coníferas de la taiga. Es una franja de transición donde muchas de las especies arbóreas se encuentran en forma de arbusto por las condiciones de tensión en las que se desarrollan; mientras persisten los arbustos, líquenes y musgos de la tundra.

    La dura climatología invernal de la tundra ha impuesto también a los animales que la habitan el desarrollo de estrategias de supervivencia y las especies optan entre tres alternativas: o emigran evitando el invierno, o se ocultan al resguardo hasta la llegada de la estación cálida o se enfrentan abiertamente al clima con adaptaciones fisiológicas especiales.

    Los bueyes almizcleros entran dentro de este último grupo. Tienen patas cortas, cuerpo robusto y una capa de pelo largo y espeso que minimiza las pérdidas de calor corporal. Además cuenta con una capa de grasa subcutánea que acumula en los meses de verano y le sirve de reserva energética durante el largo período invernal.


    La llegada del deshielo es el comienzo de la época de abundancia. Los animales salen de su letargo invernal, hay nuevos pastos para los herbívoros y toda la comunidad encuentra alimento fácilmente.

    La primavera es también el momento en el que muchos animales traerán al mundo sus crías. Algunos como los caribúes migran desde la taiga a la tundra del norte mientras otros como los wappities permanecen al abrigo de los bosques de coníferas aprovechando la explosión de materia vegetal para reponer las grasas perdidas durante el invierno.
    En los primeros días de junio los ríos de Alaska son el escenario anual de la llegada de millares de salmones de distintas especies que vuelven de su estancia en el mar para desovar y morir en las aguas en las que nacieron.

    Alaska es una tierra de osos. Hay entre 4.000 y 6.000 osos polares, más de 50.000 osos negros y entre 35.000 y 45.000 osos pardos que, aunque son la misma especie que el oso pardo europeo, en América alcanzan mayor tamaño y aquí, en Alaska, adquieren su máximo desarrollo con la subespecie conocida como oso Kodiak, un animal que puede llegar a medir más de cuatro metros y a pesar 1.200 kilos.

    La pesca y la industria forestal son dos pilares de la economía del estado que dependen directamente de la naturaleza salvaje. En los fiordos existen distintos pueblos de pescadores que viven de la pesca del salmón y por lo tanto de la salud ecológica del agua y los fondos marinos. Sólo gracias a las ayudas del gobierno pudieron superar los años siguientes a la tragedia del Exxon Valdez y todavía hoy comprueban en sus capturas que el ecosistema no se ha recuperado por completo.
    Al dañarse la base de la cadena ecológica todo el sistema sufre las consecuencias. Los animales más visibles como los peces o las aves vuelven paulatinamente, pero sin la base de la pirámide alimenticia sus poblaciones disminuyen y los animales son menos desarrollados y fuertes.

    Alaska tiene el privilegio de tener una bajísima densidad de población. Es por tanto uno de los últimos territorios vírgenes donde la naturaleza aún se manifiesta en su primitivo estado salvaje. Pero es un paraíso frágil que nada en una importante reserva de petróleo lo que hipoteca su futuro a una adecuada actuación de los hombres. Hará falta que el entendimiento y la apreciación del incalculable valor ecológico de estas tierras prime sobre los rápidos beneficios económicos para que Alaska siga siendo la última frontera para las generaciones futuras.

  • Alaska Initiative To Protect Wild Salmon Could Kill Off A Massive Open-Pit Mine

    5:55

    BRISTOL BAY, Alaska — Alaska voters are considering a ballot measure that would make the state's already strong protections for salmon fisheries even stronger, and make new mining and oil exploration projects difficult — if not impossible.

    The measure, called Proposition 1, is intended to protect Alaska’s salmon runs, especially in Bristol Bay, the designated site of the massive proposed open-pit mine project, the Pebble Mine. The site contains some of the largest undeveloped copper and gold deposits in the world.

    As things stand, the state has to prove that any big project would not impact healthy salmon waterways. If Prop 1 passes, the roles reverse, and the project would have to prove the habitat is not home to salmon at all, a drastic change to current regulation.

    Salmon streams don't recover. That's the point of this ballot measure, said Morgan Jones, a third-generation fisherman supporting Prop 1 and opposing the Pebble Mine. Once you dig up a salmon nest, it's gone. It's not like you can re-lay a place where salmon can spawn.

  • ???????? We Are Still Here: A Story from Native Alaska l Al Jazeera Correspondent

    47:23

    Every summer, Amira Abujbara boards a nine-seater plane at a tiny air taxi office. It is the same plane, with the same pilot, that she has flown in almost every year of her childhood.

    The 50-minute flight will take her over a snowy mountain range, a volcano and an elaborate tundra of blueberries and mushrooms, tea leaves and caribou moss, wildflowers and spider webs.

    She is heading to her mother’s childhood home and the place where she spends her summers – the remote Alaskan village of Iliamna. Without any roads connecting it to the outside world, this is her only way of going ‘home’.

    Iliamna, which is an Athabascan word meaning “big ice” or “big lake” sits on the shore of the lake that shares its name. The largest in Alaska, it spans more than 2,500 square kilometres, is pure enough to drink from and is home to the biggest sockeye salmon run in the world.

    Iliamna shares a post office, school, airport, medical clinic and two small stores with the neighbouring village, Newhalen. Together, they have fewer than 300 residents.
    It is a far cry from her father’s home country, Qatar, where Amira spends the rest of the year.

    Her father is Qatari and her mother is Dena’ina - a subset of the Athabascan Alaska Natives.

    Amira was born in Alaska and is registered as an Alaska Native.
    When her father married her mother he promised her parents that they would return regularly and so Amira and her sister spent their summers in Iliamna.

    Their grandmother ran a bed and breakfast for fishermen, so she would help make the beds, clean and prepare the meals for her guests. She learned how to subsistence fish – catching, smoking, brining and canning salmon during the summer months to store for the rest of the year.

    For the villagers, their home is a beautiful and fruitful land, but it is also a place of incredible hardships.
    Tiny villages are dwarfed by the vast wilderness that surrounds them, and while the region is rich in natural resources, many Alaska Natives struggle to remain above the poverty line. According to the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, over any five-year period between 1993 and 2013, an average of 11 percent of the state’s rural population moved into urban areas. Those aged 18 to 24 are the most likely to leave. But life in the city can be overwhelming for those used to the safety net of a tight-knit rural community.

    Then there are the alcohol and substance abuse rates: in Alaska, age-adjusted rates of alcohol-induced deaths are 71.4 per 100,000 for Alaska Natives and 12.1 for whites.

    Suicide rates for Alaska Natives are almost four times the national average, and Alaska Natives are far more likely to succumb to each of the state’s leading causes of death – cancer, heart disease and unintentional injury – than their white counterparts.

    In Alaska, Native children are nearly three times as likely as white children to die before their fifth birthday.

    The situation Alaska Natives face can, perhaps, best be summarised by a note in the minutes of a meeting of Newhalen residents. In a list of wishes for the community’s future, one states simply: “To still be here.”

    But why is this community so at risk and will a proposed gold and copper mine, located close to the villages, endanger it further still? Residents know it offers the promise of jobs, but there are fears it could ruin the salmon run, and with it, their way of life.

    We Are Still Here tells the story of a community fighting to preserve its culture and its connection to the land.

  • The Ends of the Earth - Alaskas Wild Peninsula

    56:37

    The Alaska Peninsula is a cloud-cloaked land of active volcanoes, rolling tundra and the greatest concentration of the largest bears on earth. The writings of naturalist Loren Eiseley inspire this filmic essay on a landscape where bears outnumber people and the sockeye salmon run is the most prolific in the world. At the base of the peninsula lies Katmai National Park, a wilderness larger Yellowstone and Yosemite -- combined. Farther down the peninsula a giant volcanic caldera emerges on the horizon, so remote that more people climb Everest than visit Aniakchak. But Alaska is warming at more than twice the rate of the rest of the planet; The Ends of the Earth, John Grabowska's lyrical film on the Alaska Peninsula, asks how climate change effects will impact this magnificent land of wilderness and wildlife.

  • Tour of the Arctic – from Svalbard to Siberia | DW Documentary

    42:26

    The Arctic is one of the most fascinating regions on our planet, and one of the most threatened. Two film crews explore its spectacular wilderness in a two-part documentary. Part one takes viewers from Norway’s Svalbard archipelago to Siberia.

    The region around the North Pole is one of the greatest and least-known wildernesses in the world, and it’s rapidly changing due to global warming. The retreat of Arctic sea ice can be observed everywhere along the Arctic Circle, presenting those who live there with dramatic changes. This documentary takes viewers on a journey through the Arctic circle and explores those changes.
    It begins in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, a place to see one of nature’s most spectacular displays — the northern lights. With the ice retreating, cruise ships can now travel further north than was previously possible. This places a strain on the fragile ecosystem. But more visitors may also mean more awareness about the risks that face the region, and more motivation to protect the Arctic.
    But as if often the case, protecting nature in the Arctic is at odds with economic interests. Russia, in particular, is keen to sell Arctic fossil fuels to the rest of world. The film next takes viewers to the gas-rich Yamal Peninsula in northwestern Siberia, where the Russian company Novatek has built the northernmost industrial facility on the globe.

    Further East in Yakutia, two noises fill the air: the relentless buzzing of mosquitoes that infest the Siberian tundra in summer, and the steady dripping of the thawing permafrost on the banks of the Kolyma River. The film’s journey ends in Chukotka in the northeast of Russia, a region closer to Alaska than to the Russian capital Moscow.

  • Majestic Bears of Alaska & British Columbia | Free Documentary Nature

    51:39

    Our film journey begins in Alaska's west. We are hoping to find glacier bears in the glacial regions of the Katmai National Park on the Douglas River. At the end of July, brown bears have now arrived to fish for salmon. In the surrounding forests, grizzlies look for berries and fresh, green twigs. The Katmai is Alaska's most volcanic area, and with 15 active volcanoes it is a veritable powder keg, surrounded by glaciers. In the Hook glacier region moose and lynx accompany us. Bald eagles have arrived at the glacial boundary and begin to tear apart their freshly caught prey. At last, we catch sight of a glacier bear. Hungry, he has left the ice region and has been forced down here in search of food, which he satisfies extensively with fresh shoots and berries.
    Continuing our film trip, we head for Prince Royal Island in British Columbia. En route, we meet with black bears on their way with their young to fish for salmon. The mother bears have to remain alert to protect their young, as we have spotted some New World porcupines too.
    Then, out of the blue, directly in front of us: the Kermode, or spirit bear. He shows no signs of timidity and is only interested in one thing: salmon. Then, a further Kermode appears, enjoying his cranberry dessert, allowing us to approach him, almost too close for comfort. But a black bear arrives on the scene and claims the cranberry bush for itself. After a brief confrontation, the Kermode opts to leave, preferring to focus on salmon fishing. Fascinating footage of this rare species of animal.

  • Mountain Wilderness Adventure in Alaska

    23:51

    Standing on top of the mountain the vast largely unaltered landscape of southeast Alaska features a gorgeous panoramic view of rugged mountain peaks, thick pine forests and pristine lakes. In the summer months snow still covers the highest mountain peaks while in the lower elevations berry bushes burst with over a dozen different species of delicious wild edible berries. In this video I document a two-day adventure hiking one of many mountains in Baranof Island, Alaska and minimalist camping by an alpine lake near the top at 2700 feet (823 meters) elevation. It was actually a three-day adventure but due to the amount of time it took to hike the rugged terrain and shoot the video I show just one day and overnight experience.

    My good friend Ben Dever joined me on this adventure (look him up on YouTube). We brought camping gear in anticipation of cold weather but the days and nights were unusually warm on this excursion. I had intended to build a shelter out of pine branches but due to time constraints I did not build one. I always get so involved in shooting video that I fall behind schedule. At this elevation no large trees grow and I would have had to hike at least 500 feet (150 meters) lower in elevation to find tall pines. However, the night was not too cold (low temperature was probably about 50˚F (10˚C)) and keeping a fire burning all night provided enough heat to lie on the ground and rest next to the fire.

    Watch as I show how I make a simple buckskin poncho to keep warm, identify several wild edible berries, jump into the cold lake (about 48˚F (9˚C)), show what I take with me for a protein source, use the knife Ben let me borrow to cut firewood, start a fire using flint, and capture some breathtaking imagery of the pristine landscape.

  • Our Alaskan Winter, 1949

    1:21:40

    Our Alaskan Winter is a silent film by Harmon “Bud” Helmericks and Constance Helmericks, circa 1949. The film details the Helmericks' lives as homesteaders in the Brooks Mountain Range of Alaska, and as explorers of northern Alaska and Canada.

    Bud Helmericks and his first wife Constance (Connie) Helmericks spent more than a decade living in and exploring northern Alaska during the 1940s and 1950s. Constance was the best-selling author of eight non-fiction books, five detailing their lives and adventures in the far north. Films that the couple shot on 16mm color film were the subject of national lecture tours. Shot with great care and artfulness under extreme living conditions, these films depict the unique lives of the Helmericks family, as well as the rapidly-changing lives of Iñupiat peoples during the era of pre-Statehood and pre-pipeline Alaska. Bud and Connie's daughter, Jean Aspen, continues the family story in her books and documentaries at

    Detailed summary information for We Live in the Arctic was provided by the filmmakers. According to these notes, the film includes scenes of the “Arctic Tern” (Cessna 170 airplane) on skis; Six different airplanes, all named the “Arctic Tern” and all painted with a bird symbol, were used in the production of the three Helmericks films over seven years; Upon return to Brooks Range cabin in Alaska after many months away, Bud takes down hanging empty gas cans left to scare bears away; Bud shows how the arctic dweller uses an ice chisel — it takes about one hour to cut through the four-foot ice of Takahula Lake; Lifting out net and fish catch; Icy lake water is hauled to the house; Tramping down an airfield for the plane with snowshoes; It is necessary to push a small piece of stove-wood under each ski of the airplane when parked to keep it from freezing down; Oliktok Point on the Arctic Ocean; Friends run out of their door waving joyously; Bud and George work with shovels and flags to make a more safe airplane field; Oolak returns hours later with a load of small driftwood sticks for fuel; Sled with a big sail approaches out of the frozen ocean; Carrie with her boy Maugulauk and husband Jacob; When Carrie becomes ill, Bud flies her to Point Barrow Hospital during wind storm; Back at Oliktok Point camp, Connie directs the airplane to safety; Dog buried in snow in a spring blizzard during month of May; Another dogsled visitor arrives, and all shake hands with Colliak, who has come from 100 miles inland; Caribou butchered; Sawing out new sled from driftwood as Lydia plays about; Apiak, older son, builds sled flooring — it is necessary to make an entirely new sled almost every season; Flight out over the polar ice fifty miles; Landing fifty miles offshore where Apiak had designated a hunting camp in his earlier explorations by sled; Pitch tent; Rifle close at hand in case of polar bears; Travel via dogsled and hunting for seals; Polar bear tracks; Connie comes up to her dead polar bear — shot from the tent at 1 a.m. in late May — feasting (not shown) followed immediately after butchering; Seal meat goes into modern pressure cooker; Apiak serves dogs their meal; Starving seal has lost its diving hole and can’t find the ocean — carried in a sack on the sled to the nearest seal hole and it finally dove down into the ocean; On shore after two months at sea; Summer tent; Lydia, Nannie and George; Saying goodbye; Home to cabin at Takahula Lake; Unloading cargo from Hughes, the trading post (100 miles away), at the new dock at Takahula Lake; Bud cuts moose hide into strips and makes chairs; Connie casting for pike at tent camp at nearby Iniakuk Lake; Broken airplane tail — Bud fixes it by taking off part of the tail and then fortunately it flew OK; Connie catches a grayling; Geese migrating; Grizzly and moose and other animals; Roasting caribou ribs; Connie uses the little yellow kayak on Takahula Lake before winter; Ice pans float down the adjacent Alatna River; Arrigetch Peaks rising above the house; Bud and Connie, in full winter dress, are prepared for winter again; Connie reads contentedly by the blazing hearth. (Color/Silent/16mm film).

    This sequence is numbered AAF-16009 and AAF-16010 from the Constance Helmericks Film collection held by the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives Department in the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks.

  • Railroad Crew Uses Howitzer CANNON to Trigger Huge Avalanche - Railroad Alaska

    5:23

    (Short on time? Skip to 3:03.)

    In this spectacular clip, Alaska Railroad crew pull out a massive 105mm military Howitzer long-range artillery cannon to fire 5LB TNT charges to deliberately create an avalanche on a mountain miles away! It's unbelievably awesome.

    The crew noticed small natural avalanches signaling a bunch of snow ready to tumble, so they use the long-range Howitzer to fire dynamite-tipped rounds at the top of the mountain to trigger a big avalanche under controlled conditions to release it and clean up the snow during a time they know the tracks will be clear of any trains.

    Watch how enormous the thick pile of snow is on the tracks at 4:24 - 30 FEET HIGH, TREETOP LEVEL!

  • The Land of Giant Bears, Alaska, Grizzly Paradise | Nature - Planet Doc Full Documentaries

    10:52

    Documentary The Land of Giant Bears, Alaska, Grizzly Paradise
    In the far north-west of the American continent stretches a land some one and a half million square kilometres in size. Only six hundred thousand people inhabit this region where the frozen tundra, the coniferous forests and the mountains dominate a landscape which, in some places, has never been trodden by man.

    The start of the melt announces the resurgence of life in Alaska. With the vegetation, food returns, and the largest of Alaska's land carnivores, the grizzly bear, awakes from its winter sleep.

    The grizzly bear belongs to the same species as the European bear, but its better diet enables it to grow much bigger. Kodiak island has some bears can weigh almost 1,000 kilos and measure 3 metres.

    7:25

    Explore Alaska’s wild side with filmmaker Ben Hamilton as he ventures into the largest national forest in the United States. Traversing land, air, and water, Hamilton journeys deep into Alaska’s great frontier and uncovers the raw beauty of the Tongass National Forest.
    In this excerpt from his full-length documentary The Meaning of Wild, Hamilton spotlights the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act with stunning footage of this preserved paradise and its thriving population of bears. According to Hamilton's guide, wilderness ranger Don MacDougall, “It’s one of the highest densities anywhere in the world, a 1,600-square-mile island and somewhere between 1 and 1.2 bears per square mile.” Together, MacDougall and Hamilton reveal the beautifully connected wild ecosystem in one of the nation's wild treasures.
