Plot Synopsis

Each one-hour episode of NATURE'S GREAT RACE follows one of three groups of animals -- caribou, zebra, and elephants -- as they face the immense challenges of migration in places around the world. Captured in real-time, using the latest satellite-tracking and filming technology, the program gives unparalleled access to the great obstacles facing each individual herd, from treacherous terrain to merciless predators, as they risk danger and death in a race for their lives. In breathtaking spectacles spanning Canada, Alaska, and southern and eastern Africa, the documentary gives a front-row seat to the ultimate test of survival for each of these animal groups, showcasing their journeys more intimately than they've ever been seen before -- each fraught step captured in unprecedented depth and detail. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at 9pm (check local listings.)
