That's right, a blast from the past.
I was talking a bit on another forum about the BBC Planet Earth series and commenting on how it was right up there with New Wilderness, but a bit different. Then I was asked what was Lorne Green's New Wilderness was all about. Talk about trying to pull from memory.
But it got me thinking. The Wiki article states the following:
Lorne Greene's New Wilderness (or just New Wilderness) was a Canadian television nature documentary series starting in 1982 starring Lorne Greene. The series initially aired on CTV but was later widely syndicated. It was a followup to an earlier, similar 1970s documentary series entitled Untamed World (later titled Untamed Frontier).Quote has been trimmed
It is a multiple award-winning wildlife program, number one in its time slot for five years running, and provides stunning
So I got to wondering. I grew up on this show and was the only other thing besides cartoons that I'd sit and watch. It was #1 in it's time slot for 5 years straight and won so many awards......
..... Why isn't it digitally remastered and put out in a box set to buy?
I looked online for a bit and all I could find were 2nd hand VHS tapes, which I imagine are about as old as the show itself, and I doubt the quality wouldn't be all that great.
Has anybody else ever heard of this show (I imagine most here did) and do you know where one could get the collection, if possible?
Lorne had the proper voice for the show too.... all wilderness-like and such.
