Explore New Hampshire's Outdoor Wonders
on WILDLIFE JOURNAL
Second Season of Series Premieres Thursday, October 2, at 9 p.m.
DURHAM, N.H. -- Get ready for more wild New Hampshire wonders when the second season of WILDLIFE JOURNAL premieres Thursday, October 2, at 9 p.m. on New Hampshire Public Television. The award-winning series is co-produced by NHPTV and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
WILDLIFE JOURNAL's cameras capture wildlife that most of us never see; introduce people whose lives are deeply connected to the natural world, from wildlife researchers to outdoor enthusiasts; and transport viewers to remote destinations in the Granite State. Each half-hour program includes two features and a Wild Ways and a Wild Places segment. Wild Ways has a "how-to" focus, with tips on many outdoor activities. Wild Places features areas of scenic or recreational interest in the Granite State.
"We're pleased to offer a second season of WILDLIFE JOURNAL to viewers in Northern New England," said Peter Frid, general manager and CEO of NHPTV. "Our first season was an acclaimed success, both with viewers and with professional peer organizations." The series received a number of awards, including a bronze Telly Award for excellence, eight New England Emmy nominations, the 2003 Eco Award from the Outdoor Writers Association of America for Best of Show in the Outdoors Category, and second place for a television series from the Association for Conservation Information.
"We're happy to be able to share our passion for wildlife and outdoor recreation with NHPTV viewers," said Lee Perry, Executive Director of N.H. Fish and Game. "WILDLIFE JOURNAL gives them an inside look at the full scope of wildlife management activities in the state."
