Follow nature photographer Michael Forsberg as he examines the remaining "wildness" in the Great Plains of North America. Featuring stunning imagery, NET Television's "Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild"—which premiered in Nebraska on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012, on NET1 and NET-HD—is based on Forsberg's book of the same name.
Today some of the biggest issues of our time—water scarcity, climate change, food production, energy development, pipelines, etc.—are playing themselves out right here in the heart of the continent, the Great Plains. As Forsberg says at program's end:
"Moving forward, perhaps the most important question to ask now is, what do we want the Great Plains to be? What will it look like, how will it function, and will it have wildness? What will our generation leave behind for our children's future."
"Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild," is funded in part by the Nebraska Humanities Council, the Nebraska Environmental Trust, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment and the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. It is a co-production of NET Television and Michael Forsberg Photography.
