The Humboldt Current
Along South America’s western coast, the Humboldt Current promotes a food web that can support the largest creatures to ever live on our planet, and encourages life to thrive in places where it should be barren. We’ll reveal the catalysts behind the Current’s powerful life-giving engine as we follow it from the frozen south to the scorching north during three unique episodes: Genesis, Journey and Arrival.
Royals: Keeping the Crown
Nothing quite captures the world’s attention like the rise, the fall, and the rebranding of royalty. From Queen Victoria’s attempts to unite Europe, to the end of Russia’s Romanovs, right up to Princes William and Harry, this series explores the survival strategies of royals through the ages in rare and never-before-seen archives, colorized for the very first time.
Exploring nature, ecology, science and tech like never before, biologist and wildlife adventurer Patrick Aryee sets out to bring humanity’s future into focus. This epic six-part docu-series, filmed across 4 continents, explores how humanity can solve many of the fundamental issues facing us today by “mimicking” the incredible innovations found in nature. Nature, in its unparalleled genius, has already solved many of the problems we face today. But the key lies in the emerging technology on the cusp of innovation right now. Using cutting-edge CGI, the series will explore a future where the technology is already applied, and each problem is solved.
