About the Program



If families want to learn more about animals and plants, and find ways to help protect our natural heritage, they don't have to trek to Africa or even travel to America's national parks. All they have to do is tune into WILD TV, a two-part program from the producers of the NATURE series.

WILD TV will air on two successive Thursdays, September 5 and 12, at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).

Hosted by actor/comedian Wali Collins, the program uses popular music, lively graphics and real-life situations and people to show that nature is accessible to everyone, whatever the setting -- urban, suburban, or rural.
