Premise

The long-running nature series that emphasized conservation was a TV pioneer in visiting remote locations for up-close footage of exotic animals in their natural habitats. A staple of NBC's Sunday schedule for nine seasons before going into first-run syndication in 1971, `Wild Kingdom' won numerous awards, including four Emmys. An updated version of the show with Alec Baldwin as narrator began airing on Animal Planet in 2002.
