In the Americas with David Yetman, the new HDTV series by multiple Emmy Award-winning producer and director Dan Duncan and internationally renowned writer, host, and producer David Yetman, takes a fresh look at the lands that make up much of the Western Hemisphere. Each country contains landscapes, peoples, and history that have not received the attention they deserve on the world stage. In the Americas with David Yetman undertakes a new approach to travel and adventure.

Part 1 will be the segment "Peru: A Train to the Clouds." Once each month a train departs the coastal mega city of Lima, Peru, bound for the highlands. Along the way the railroad passes through numerous tunnels and over trestles, crowning out at nearly 16,000 feet elevation. Host Dave Yetman hops on the train to arrive at its
destination, the indigenous city of Huancayo, high on the Altiplano of the Andes and as different from Lima as any two cities in the world.

Part 2 will be the segment "Winter in the Caldera: January in the Yellowstone Hotspot." Yellowstone National Park is our first, and one of the most visited national parks. In winter, access is limited, and visitors and
wildlife are challenged by deep snow and fierce cold. The frozen landscape is utterly transformed from summertime, and its explosive potential is even more evident.
