Nature: The Born Free Story

Press Release distributed at The Television Critics Association Press Tour, August 2010, by WNET

THIRTEEN's Nature explores the legacy of perhaps the most iconic wildlife story ever told in The Born Free Story, Winter/Spring 2011 on PBS. Featuring George Adamson's diary entries and rarely seen home movies, film examines how the story of one lion changed the way we look at animals today. Nature Online (pbs.org/nature) features more than 30 full episodes.

The year 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of Joy Adamson's milestone book, Born Free, a book that forever changed the way we think about wildlife. The dramatic story of Joy and George Adamson becoming surrogate parents of an orphaned lion cub named Elsa and her eventual release back into the wild sold millions of copies around the world, and the extraordinarily successful film based on the book went on to win two Academy Awards. It was one of the earliest representations on film of animals as individuals and had considerable repercussions in the world of conservation. The idyllic story portrayed on film was far from reality. Behind its romanticized depiction of Elsa and the Adamsons is the compelling story of the daring and controversial life two lovers of wildlife chose to live. But it is also a celebration of how a simple act of kindness taught us all how to see animals in a brand-new way.
