When I was a kid, our family always looked forward to Sunday Night and "The Wonderful World of Color". It was an hour of Disney productions. Sometimes there were Disney movies in two parts, sometimes Disney serials like "The Adventures of Davy Crocket", sometimes Disney cartoons, and sometimes we'd get to see some of the fabulous Disney Nature films. I can still see the Disney movies and cartoons if I want but I really miss the Disney Nature films. I went searching and was able to purchase "White Wilderness" which focusses on animal life in the artic. I was reminded early on to watch my weight as I watched the walrusses laboriously waddle around the rocks. The two young polar bears were a hit for viewers of all ages. There were some life and death scenes as well as some very unusual footage of a wolverine in the wild. I also got to finally view lemmings which I found very interesting.

The one problem with this and other Disney nature films I've seen recently is that the quality of the color has suffered a lot over the years. I don't know enough about film to know what they should have used but the producers apparently weren't looking to the future. I suppose color film was still in early development although this was at least 16 years after "The Wizard of Oz" and THAT hasn't seem to suffer. Anyhow, it merely managed to keep a very good documentary from being great.

If you grew up on Disney's wilderness tales as I did, you may be shocked to find them to have been falsified documentaries. Not only false, but in many cases cruel. In this particular video for instance a polar bear is actually PLACED at the top of a steep snowy hillside and forced to "accidentally fall" several hundred feet. Additionally, this is the title that propagated the myth that lemmings commit suicide. They don't. Walt's producers actually THREW them off a cliff and taped it, saying they jumped... Check out Cruel Camera - Hollywood Animals.

No money should be made from the sale of this footage...

I loved these Disney documentaries when I was a child. They would play them before the main feature at our local 'drive-in' movie. I now have two and am still seeking the others. Known as True Life Adventures. The VHS was as described however, we discovered our old player was ailing. We tried a different unit and the movie played (as described).

I loved this documentary but I was disappointed of learning that the lemmings were forced to fall off the cliff to resemble suicide during the filming process.
