National Geographic Films “Yellowstone Live” on the Yellowstone Basin Ranch

The owners of Yellowstone Basin Ranch were honored National Geographic chose the ranch as part of their base of operations while filming the much anticipated 4-day television event, “Yellowstone Live”. The Yellowstone Basin Ranch is located under ten minutes from West Yellowstone, Montana – home to the famed west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The ranch is the first private land upstream from Hebgen Lake on the South Fork of the Madison River and is adjacent to the two million acre Custer-Gallatin National Forest lands that lead into Yellowstone Park. Only one paved road separates the ranch from Yellowstone. Wildlife pass back and forth from Yellowstone and onto the property – making this 294± ranch its own private version of Yellowstone National Park.

“Yellowstone Live”, hosted by Josh Elliot, which premiers on Sunday, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. MT on National Geographic Channel and simulcast the following three nights on Nat Geo Wild should be considerably more interesting than the average webcam feed. The live broadcast will sweep through parts of Yellowstone National Park via 25 live cameras across 35 locations, as well as first-ever cell-phone bundling technology to broadcast from the most remote locations. “With Yellowstone Live, we hope to leave no stone unturned as cameras film more than 22 million acres across three states and five national forests to capture the stunning beauty and wonder of the most remote wilderness in the lower 48 states,” says Geoff Daniels, President of Original Programming and Production for National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild. “Our exceptional lineup of storytelling experts will immerse viewers into a four-day journey that encapsulates everything that is great about America and its wildlife.” In addition to filming the Park itself, National Geographic is also filming on the Yellowstone Basin Ranch capturing multiple wildlife species in their splendor.
