Also known as Lorne Greene's New Wilderness, this filmed half-hour weekly compilation of wildlife footage with on-camera and voice-over narration by the Bonanza veteran was co-produced by Greene's son Charles and experienced documentary producer/writer Stephen Dewar. Its superior production values and Greene's authoritative delivery combined to give CTV a Canadian ratings winner for five years, and the series also enjoyed significant success in syndication in the U.S. and internationally.

It played on CTV on Tuesdays at 7:30pm from September 1982 to September 1987.
