What's the story?
MUTUAL OF OMAHA'S WILD KINGDOM is a virtual field trip into the natural habitat of all sorts of wild animals. Beautifully filmed and expertly narrated (most recently by Alec Baldwin), the award-winning show continues to set the standard for wildlife documentaries. Episodes have chronicled topics as varied as wolves' adaptability in areas populated by humans; relationships among killer whales, elephant seals, and king penguins; and the first film footage of the highly endangered and elusive Butaan lizard. The show explains animals' amazing survival tactics, dispels myths about them, and highlights their battles against extinction.
