The Born Free Legacy

If you have any interest at all in PBS's "Elsa's Legacy" (part of their "Nature" series), then you owe it to yourself to forget all about it and watch the BBC version of the same show, which is titled "The BORN FREE Legacy". The difference is beyond belief. Fortunately, some very nice person has placed the BBC version on YouTube, and I have placed all 4 parts of it below. The BBC got it right, and they even live up to the "legacy" aspect of the title. So far, only 339 people have watched it all the way through on YouTube; but this is the version of the show we should have been shown on PBS. Please watch and recommend this BBC show to everyone you know.

  1. Thanks for posting this. It was better than the PBS version

  2. I feel like such a fool. The original "Born Free Legacy" has been removed from YouTube, and I did not save a copy. All that you can find there now is the PBS version of the show (even though the YouTube clips may be labeled "BBC").
