MontanaPBS presents "Back from the Brink: Montana's Wildlife Legacy - Part 1" on June 6 at 7 p.m. and June 20 at 3 a.m.

This two-part documentary is about exploitation and depletion, need and greed, but is ultimately a story of restoration, renewal and rebirth of Montana's rich wildlife resource.

Part One chronicles the depletion of Montana's wildlife during the 1800s and features the beginning of Montana's conservation movement during the first half of the 20th Century. Developments include the establishment of game farms for planting birds, the advent of scientific wildlife management and the landmark federal Pittman-Robertson (P-R) Act.
