ABOVE YELLOWSTONE is the first-ever aerial tour of Yellowstone National Park. It begins a 2-year run on PBS stations in June 2011. The purposes of the 40-minute film are to reveal Yellowstone as never seen before (virtually all of the park from the air), to celebrate its natural wonders, and to provide a brief contextual history of its geology, Native Peoples, wildlife, and current status as a destination for 3.6 million visitors annually. The film is a celebration of Yellowstone and acknowledges the vital work done by NPS. Shot in High Definition during two days of flying in a helicopter in October 2010, the film has an original score and will be closed-captioned. A few of the segments are: The Lamar Valley, The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Forest Fire, The Geyser Basins, and parts of Yellowstone as seen during the flight of a Bald Eagle. ABOVE YELLOWSTONE also has a series of maps which are helpful in contemplating or planning a trip
Fabulous, majestic, memorable, beautiful, inspiring, holds attention, the historic pictures are wonderful, editing's terrific, the writing's inspiring and the whole thing's brilliantly-paced. Twenty thumbs-up. You have done an important American icon a huge service, and you have stood on the shoulders of many others who have stewarded and cared for this great treasure, and have then added new dimension and perspective. I think your work will be of great interest to many. --Yellowstone National Park Ranger
As someone who has lived and worked in Yellowstone National Park and who is familiar with the landscape, it was wonderful to see a new, magical Yellowstone from above. To see favorite places--such as Lamar Valley, Mt. Washburn, Norris Geyser Basin--through the vantage point that usually only an eagle soaring overhead is able to enjoy, made watching this film an amazing experience. I'm never look at Yellowstone the same way again! --Yellowstone Scholar
It's looking stunning. Nice work. Some of these shots look like Monet paintings. --Bozeman, MT Resident

Unfortunately, the segments are not well-organized, jumping from one area of the park to another. I've been to Yellowstone a number of times and yet it was not always easy to follow the progression. My disappointment was not with the quality of the video, or even the amount of coverage (although I'd have loved for it to be twice as long!), just with the fact that the segments were not arranged geographically, which would have seemed to be a logical and straightforward thing to do.
There was also a montage (perhaps five minutes?) at the beginning which seemed to be compiled from random clips of footage - again, beautiful but difficult to follow. Unlike most of the video, this montage was not captioned or narrated, and therefore difficult to identify.
Definitely worth having, but doesn't quite live up to its potential.
It added so much to what I had already seen and makes me want to go back. You also see things you would never see from the ground and they tell you what they are as you watch it. So enjoy and relax and plan your next trip.
This video gives not only an arial view of the Yellowstone we know- it also visits less celebrated parts of the region of the park, especially areas with limited access. It's a good companion to the standard Yellowstone tourism video. Worth the purchase, especially for the enthusiast.
