Land of the Eagle is the first television series to attempt a comprehensive account of North America's wildlife and wild places. Land of the Eagle turns the clock back to reveal the continent as it used to be, hundreds of years ago, a story told by the people who lived on it, charted it and shaped it - the Native Americans and the European explorers and settlers. This eight-part series explores the great diversity of the continent, revealing the bonds between human history and natural history as it travels from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Along the way, it traverses the rugged Canadian wilderness, the swampy Everglades, the sweeping Great Plains, the majestic Rockies, the arid, hostile deserts, and Alaska - the last wild frontier of America. Together, the eight programmes reveal the way that the nature of this 'untamed' land shaped the lives and fortunes of those who ventured into its vast interior. Through their writings and diaries, Peter Crawford's award-winning series recreates the landscapes and wildlife of North America at the time when the first Europeans came to this 'new world'.

Eagle Creek Park is the largest park in Indianapolis, and one of the largest municipal parks in the United States. It is located at 7840 W. 56th Street in Indianapolis, Indiana and covers approximately 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) of water and 3,900 acres (16 km2) of land. There are about 10 miles (16 km) of paths within it. Eagle Creek Park serves primarily as a nature reserve. Before coming into the possession of Indianapolis, the land was owned by Purdue University, and by Josiah K. Lilly Jr. before that. The Eagle Creek Park Foundation serves to promote volunteerism and provide funding for the Park and its programs. The NCAA Rowing Championships were held in the Park in 2003, 2014, and 2015 and the World Rowing Championships were held there in 1994. The 1987 Pan American Games used the park for rowing, canoeing and archery.
