Wild Russia Clean up.

Postby mythman » Tue Jul 19, 2016 11:33 am

There seems to be some confusion with the National Geographic's Wild Russia https://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=118501&lid=7. There were only 6 episode but there seems to be more blank ones. The reason for this I think is that according to wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Russia it was shown 3 times on different channels in 3 different orders. The current order reflects the Animal Planet order.

    Kamchatka
    Primorye (The Secret Forest)
    Siberia
    Caucasus (The Great Divide)
    Arctic
    Urals (Primeval Valleys)

The empty episodes need deleting and I think the order should be change to the original Aired order of National Geographic , namely,


    Siberia
    Kamchatka
    Arctic
    Caucasus (The Great Divide)
    Primorye (The Secret Forest)
    Urals (Primeval Valleys)


It would make more sense and be more consistent.

Thanks,

In fact, there are 2 very different versions of this show.

The ones currently on TVDB at https://www.thetvdb.com/series/wild-russia are the National Geographic versions named as follows:

Kamchatka
The Secret Forest
Siberia
The Great Divide
Arctic
Primeval Valleys

These ones run 50 minutes each, and have a british host doing the voiceover.

The other version which is not on TVDB, but should be as well was produced by Animal Planet, and is completely different. The episodes run 42 minutes each, and use some of the same footage, but not in the same order as the NatGeo versions, and have some of their own unique cuts, and are all sequenced differently than the NatGeo versions with an american host doing the voiceovers, with a completely different voice script from the NatGeos. Those are named:

Kamchatka
Primorye
Siberia
Caucasus
Arctic
Urals

The Animal Planet site for these is at:

https://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/wild-russia/

They ran in July-Aug 2009.
