One of my favorite wolf documentaries is Living with Wolves, by Jim and Jamie Dutcher.

Have any of you seen it? =) It's quite long, about two hours minus commercial time.

I saw that documentary!
It's the one with Kamots and Wyakin and everyone, right? And where they release them into the wild?
It was great -- we watched it in our Biology class in October.
And then we had to do a prompt on it... xD

Yes it's the documentary with those wolves, but the Sawtooth pack was never released into the wild. At the end, they're transferred to another wolf sanctuary run by the Nez Perce tribe. And you're lucky to have watched it in school, I wish we watched interesting stuff in my biology class. xD

Oh yeah, now I remember. Thanks!
It was a good documentary, but they were a little outdated because they used rank names like alpha, beta, and omega.

I have a coffee-table book, Spirit of the Wolf, by Shaun Ellis (that British guy that lived with a wild wolf pack [for stufy purposes, I think]) with pictures by Monty Sloan.
It also uses things like alphas/betas/omegas, but it has a lot of good info, otherwise.

We're watching Darwin-related movies now. It's at least better than taking notes and stuff, but even though it's an advanced class (most highschool freshies take IPS, which is intro to physical science), we're behind for some reason. At least one other class is doing viruses/bacteria. D:
I usually doodle during movies, anyway. :P

and to stay on topic...

I also remember seeing a National Geographic special on dire wolves, which was cool, too.
And there was a sabertoothed cat one right after.

That documentary is part of the Nature series on PBS, and I agree it's amazing, I loved that one.

I really enjoyed In the Valley of the Wolves...it focused more on the actual Yellowstone wolves without any human involvment and had some intresting footage. The part where the two wolf packs fight is neat to watch because its the only footage of such an event.

The national geographic ones are pretty well done. I'm not really a fan of the Hunted Hunted series...sure their intresting but it kind of anthromorphizes the attacks. Like you can't speculate on what happened or could have, all you have are facts of past events. I found the show had too many 'what ifs' and not enough evidence.

Growing Up wolf was cute! It was on animal planet.

some other less well known ones are The Global Wolf and one on Italian wolves.

I used to have a whole slew of wolf documentaries recorded on my DVR, but there was some weird glitch and it erased everything. :/

But The Global Wolf was on there, and Growing up: Wolf was as well.

I like watching documentaries....its like a mini story into the life of another organism on earth. Besides its educational and shows diffrent viewpoints too.

BBC has a very good documentary on wolves. It features snippets of wolves from around the world.

One of the first shows about wolves I saw was a Canadian film grant one...I don't know what its called but a scene with a hunter and a researcher finding wolves always stuck with me for some reason.

In Praise of Wolves by R.D Lawrence is an older one, but its intresting in the fact that the author was an avid wolf enthusiast and had his own captive pack.

Ohhh darn, I can't remember of that one documentary by Nature that focused on Ernest Thompson Seton and his mission to eliminate Lobo and Blanca.

I found it to be a very moving documentary though. =) And it was educational too. When I read The New Wolves by Rick Bass and came across the section of the book that discussed Seton and Lobo, I found that I already knew a lot of what Bass talked about.
