Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge Previous Broadcasts

Africa: Madagascar (Episode #105)

KQED Life: Sat, Nov 17, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

Eighty million years ago, Madagascar split off from Africa. Separated from the mainland, the sturdy and lucky creatures that reached Madagascar's shores intact took off on a wild and bizarre evolutionary journey. Art documents Madagascar's most famous inhabitants: it's a who's who of the weird and wonderful, including dancing sifakas, rainbow-colored chameleons, a forest of upside-down trees and a spiny desert.

Alaska: Katmai Coast (Episode #104)

KQED Life: Sat, Nov 10, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

The remote Katmai Coast is the largest intact stretch of uninhabited coastline left in North America. Art takes advantage of the long days of Alaska's short summer in Katmai National Park, spending time with the largest population of grizzly bears in the world. Joined by bear biologists, he gets up close and personal with Ursus arctos to provide a fresh look at the behavior of these powerful predators in the wild.

The Southwest: Zion and Canyon De Chelly (Episode #110)

KQED Life: Sat, Nov 3, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

The American Southwest is a geological time machine. Its bizarre and beautiful rock formations are the result of eons of erosion. In Utah's Zion National Park, Art explores surreal slot canyons carved from wind and water and encounters the strange rock spires-hoodoos-that punctuate the landscape like giant exclamation points. In Arizona's Canyon de Chelly, he goes by horseback with a Navajo guide to discover petroglyphs hidden in tribal lands. With its brilliant light, red desert rock, cobalt blue skies, golden cotton woods and white-barked Aspens, the American Southwest is a photographer's playground.
