On the one hand - I found "Siberian Tiger Quest" to be quite a sad and distressing tale about the plight of these magnificent and beautiful tigers who were attempting to live out their lives in the desolate forests of northern Siberia.

Not only was food scarce and difficult to find at times - But, these unfortunate creatures were also being ruthlessly hunted down by profit-hungry poachers who couldn't care less that extinction was (soon enough) facing these poor, hapless animals.

But, on the other hand - I found the Korean researcher, Sooyong Park, who frequently appeared in this nature-documentary (and who had spent 5 years "roughing it" (literally) in the wilds in order to film the Siberian tigers) to be a real peculiar oddball. Indeed.

To say that Sooyong's eccentric demeanour hinged on the brink of near-lunacy would truly be an understatement of the highest order.

This otherwise intriguing and potentially promising nature-documentary about the elusive Siberian tiger, unfortunately, lost itself some serious points due to the introduction of the Sooyong Park character into its presentation.

To say that this Korean researcher was truly an "oddball" (who went to the most bizarre and perplexing extremes in order to photograph the Siberian tigers) would definitely be an understatement like no other.

Yes. Indeed. There were some really excellent moments in this wildlife-documentary when the viewer was given a close-up look at the beautiful Siberian tigers - But, then again - When the decidedly unhinged Sooyong Park appeared on screen (which was quite often), there was certainly a disturbing edge about him that left this spectator feeling somewhat ill-at-ease by his presence.

Anyway - You really have to watch this presentation for yourself to know exactly what I'm talking about here.... (*watch video-clip sans Sooyong*)

Yes. I believe that once you see this first-rate nature-documentary you'll completely agree with me that the Siberian tiger, in all of its awesome ferociousness, has got to be one of the most handsomely beautiful animals that exists anywhere in this world.

Unfortunately, today these truly magnificent beasts-of-the-wild are being ruthlessly hunted down by insensitive poachers to the near-brink of extinction.

Featuring some really excellent photography - This enjoyable, 50-minute wildlife program, from PBS, offers the viewer a close-up look at the ever-elusive Siberian tiger as it struggles to survive in a vast wilderness that is, sadly enough, being carved-up by man and his never-ending drive to conquer, control, and develop the untamed world.

I have always enjoyed episodes of nature. I learned things that I did not know these great Cats.

Wow! This is an amazing video. I have watched hundreds of documentaries on animals and I don't remember ever being inspired the way this film inspires me.

Outstanding! Tragic and uplifting, this documentary about the disappearing Siberian Tiger simply must be seen to be appreciated. It's only an hour, and will make you say, "wow!".

Exceptional documentary about tigers in the far eastern stretches of Siberia. The narrator, a naturalist filmmaker, spends time with another filmmaker who spent years in the wilds, conceiving ingenious ways to film tigers and other local wildlife in their habitat, and who got some outstanding footage of the big cats in the process. The sight of these animals at the edge of the world is astonishing.
