We show a lot of great programs on AETN--from PBS KIDS to "Masterpiece," "Austin City Limits" and Ken Burns documentaries. But the one program that outshines nearly all of them in regards to viewer requests: "Alone in the Wilderness."
"Alone in the Wilderness" follows Dick Proenneke as he builds a cabin by hand on the shore of Twin Lakes, Alaska in 1967. Proenneke documented his experience on a 16mm wind-up Bolex camera and turned it into the film we know today. You won't see stunning HD footage, or shocked by life-or-death "reality TV" situations. However, you will witness a man building a simple cabin with his bare hands in an untamed, harsh wilderness. It's most likely the simplicity and solitude that viewers find so relaxing.
So what are we getting at here? You may have seen the original and enjoyed it. If so, you're in for a treat. "Alone in the Wilderness" part 2 will air Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m.
"Alone in the Wilderness" part 2 follows Proenneke as he continues to document his experience in the Alaskan wilderness, capturing his own amazing craftsmanship, the stunning wildlife and scenery and even a visit from his brother Ray.
"Alone in the Wilderness" part 2 premieres Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m.
