Great Plains –America’s Lingering Wild Documentary Goes National

Great Plains –America’s Lingering Wild Documentary Goes National

Originally premiering in Nebraska on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012, Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild, was released to a national audience by PBS in September 2013. Based on Forsberg’s award-winning book of the same name, it will be shown nationally as a two-part series: Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild: A Long Hard Struggle (Part 1), and We Live With the Land (Part 2).

Teaming up with veteran NET film producer Michael Farrell, Forsberg sets off on a remarkable journey where he not only captures the resilience of the Great Plains, but the host of dedicated people working to keep the wildness alive.

Once home to millions of bison, elk, pronghorn and deer, vast prairie dog towns, top predators like plains grizzlies and prairie wolves, and massive migrations of birds and fish, the Great Plains became tamed by an expanding America. In the blink of an eye, this vast, fragile, biodiverse ecosystem vanished, and now only remnants remain. The remaining wildlife and native landscapes are what fueled the fire for Forsberg’s Journey, to capture and share in Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild.
