The Last Lions

 

The gripping real-life saga of Ma di Tau, her cubs, the buffalo, and the rival pride unfolds inside a stark reality: Lions are vanishing from the wild. In the last 50 years, lion populations have plummeted from 450,000 to as few as 20,000. Dereck and Beverly Joubert weave their dramatic storytelling and breathtaking, up-close footage around a resonating question: Are Ma di Tau and her young to be among the last lions? Or will we as humans, having seen how tough, courageous, and poignant their lives in the wild are, be moved to make a difference.

Deepsea Challenge - Leaving March 31st!

 

This remarkable achievement is now an amazing film, “DEEPSEA CHALLENGE.” It captures all the drama and danger of Cameron’s epic journey to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, 6.7 miles down – a world no human had ever explored. The technology is fascinating. The footage is stunning. And the whole expedition is inspiring.

Extreme Weather - Coming April 1st!

 

Weather has always been one of the most dynamic and complex forces shaping our planet, but now it’s intensifying in varied and complex ways. Extreme Weather takes us to the front-lines where few have gone.

Flying Monsters

 

220 million years ago, dinosaurs were beginning their domination of Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap: pterosaurs were taking control of the skies. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction.

Sea Monsters

 

Prehistoric marine reptiles, both alien and awe-inspiring, at once utterly inhuman and somehow irresistibly compelling. Nothing can prepare you for this amazing plunge into the Cretaceous oceans of 80 million years ago, a merciless realm ruled by some of the most ferocious animals ever to stalk the seas of planet Earth. It scarcely seems possible that these swift, massive underwater predators actually existed, but they did, and this is their fascinating, unforgettable story.
