Saving The Ocean
"The Sacred Island"
Host Carl Safina is on the island of Pemba, part of the Zanzibar chain off the east African coast. The island's reefs and lagoons, once threatened by resort development, are now managed by, and for, the local villages' fishermen. Safina fishes with them and learns about their traditions of stewardship of the world and its resources.G
"Climate of Doubt"
In 2008, climate change was hot. Politicians in both major parties, pressed by an anxious public, seemed poised to act. Today public opinion has cooled and politicians ignore the issue or proclaim their skepticism of scientific evidence that human activity is imperiling the planet. FRONTLINE correspondent John Hockenberry of PRI's "The Takeaway" goes inside organizations that have fought the scientific establishment, environmental groups and lawmakers to shift the direction of debate on climate issues and redefine the politics of global warming.G
"Animal Odd Couples"
Nature investigates why some animals form special cross-species bonds and explores what these relationships suggest about the nature of animal emotions. Some of the relationships the film documents include: a goat guiding a blind horse; a doe visiting her Great Dane surrogate mother; and a juvenile gibbon choosing to live with a family of capuchins.G
"Chasing Wild Horses"
Roberto Dutesco, a New York City fashion photographer, photographs human beauty every day, but since childhood he has carried with him a singular artistic vision: the wild, long-maned dark horses of Sable Island off the coast of Nova Scotia. We see him and the wild horses interact as the horses roam through the white sand dunes of the remote island.G
