While turkey certainly makes for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, there’s a lot to love about these humble creatures year-round. In the light-hearted documentary My Family and Other Turkeys with Nigel Marven, British wildlife TV presenter, author and avid birdwatcher Nigel Marven is on a mission to discover the remarkable history of this iconic bird – both at home and in the wild.

Using his own brood of newly-hatched turkeys, he reveals fascinating insights into their behavior, explores the story behind the domestication of wild turkeys and discovers why these birds have been an important part of numerous cultures for centuries.

WXXI-TV is pleased to present My Family and Other Turkeys with Nigel Marven on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 10:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
