The roots of taxidermy date back to ancient times, and can even be traced through such famous taxidermists as Charles Darwin, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. Now, the exciting, entertaining and often surprising world of taxidermy is revealed in a new half-hour personality-driven series, Mounted in Alaska. Enter the unusual workplace of Russell Knight, the owner of Knight's Taxidermy; an Alaska based family-run shop with a worldwide reputation for doing some of the finest work in the business. Assisting Russell is an expert team of colorful craftsmen and outdoorsmen with a passion for preserving the wildlife and natural history that hunters and fishermen - from local Alaskans to African hunters - bring into the shop. With over 30 years of experience under his belt, Russell does more than just some of the best work in the industry. There's no job too challenging for him to tackle. From mounting a charging warthog so that it's busting through a wall in one client's home to creating the world's first camel form to the complete restoration of an historic 50-year-old polar bear that's an Alaskan landmark - Russell is constantly put to the test with difficult and sometimes strange requests for mounts from his customers that come from all over the world.
