    The Great Barrier Reef is a planet of its own, home to over 9000 known species such as turtles, crocodiles, sharks, venomous sea snakes, brightly colored worms, and large algae.
     

     
     

    These species interact with the coral to form a complex and delicate ecosystem dependent on each other for survival. Yet today the coral—and therefore all the organisms that depend on it—is gravely at risk. In a visually stunning series of one the most beautiful natural habitats on Earth, our international award winning crew has followed a team of scientists for 5 years. Their mission is to develop groundbreaking technological solutions to save the GBR from destruction.

    The Pyrenees are one of Europe’s oldest mountain range and shelters a wildlife that is almost impossible to observe, as the area is inaccessible. Our team lives on site and will film its wildlife for two years. 

    Discover wildlife filming behind the scenes and find out that more often than not, animals are much more cunning than men. Unfortunately, this lush world is still not very accessible – the animals fear the presence of man in this emblematic massif. To discover them, you have to investigate, find clues, follow tracks and be very patient before you finally get the chance to see them.
    Luckily, the journey proves to be just as exciting as the objective: chance upon a mountain-size game of hide-and-seek where man must understand nature and tame it in order to discover its secrets.

    Beneath the oceans’ surface, thousands of volcanoes have yet to be discovered or explored. Mount La Pérouse is one of these sleeping giants, off the coast of Reunion Island. It is a genuine oasis of life that could be sheltering sprawling coral reefs.

    The scientific expedition “La Pérouse” has made it its goal to reveal the sunken haven's secrets. This geological anomaly is only known to a few    Réunionese longline fishers who regularly enjoy miraculous catches there. But as for oceanographers, they still consider the area to be a true “terra incognita”, a mystery to solve. To date, no diver has ever approached it.
    What kind of species lives there and at what depth?  What predators feed there? Are there any rare, or even unknown, fish? To what birds and marine mammals is it home?
    Underwater GPS, photogrammetry, environmental DNA, 3D cartography, with the help of the most modern scientific techniques, all will be revealed about one of the last virgin territories on Earth, located in the French economic zone. Embark on an unprecedented human and scientific adventure.

    Hernin and Marcellin Abong are two Vanuatu twin brothers with very different backgrounds: one has become the “Very Great Chief” of his tribe, while the other is an ethno-archaeologist. 

    Their culture is slowly but surely disappearing forever. To keep a record of it, they both delve into the most remote parts of Vanuatu in search of the customs and rites of their people. On foot and by canoe, their journey takes them to grandiose and isolated territories, to discover spectacular and unknown rituals, even for them.

    To the rhythm of the tides and for 24 hours, we will sneak into the secret and tumultuous life of the strange creatures of the shorelines, to discover their incredible way of life.

    "The secret life of shorelines" takes us between land and sea where the ceaseless ebb and flow of the water shapes mysterious and spellbinding universes. Sandy, rocky, silty or made of coral; cold or temperate; subjected to strong or weak tidal ranges, each shore is a world of its own, populated with unique species.
     
    At the heart of these remarkable environments, we will discover the various strategies animals and plants have developed to survive the periods when the sea washes over everything and those when it brutally disappears. Because, twice a day, the dwellers of the shores must adapt to brutal temperature or oxygen changes, stand firm against the waves, currents or the violent gusts of wind.
     
     
    To each shore its heroes, and to each hero its strategy to brave the elements. From the rocky tide pools of the Salish Sea in Canada, to the emerging coral plateaus of Kimberley, Australia; from the shoals and seagrass beds of Zanzibar, Tanzania, to the dunes and lagoons of Wadden Sea, Germany, we will follow the incredible adventures of the animals of the seashores.
     
    You’ll never see shorelines the same way again.

    This series reveals how beautiful some sites are and their unique ecosystems in the company of rangers, zoologists or biologists who work on the ground to conserve them. In the heart of these breathtaking sites, we discover their work of protection, awareness or repopulation.

    Some natural sites’ breathtaking beauty should not take away from their role as unique ecosystems. Within them, animal species and nature live in perfect harmony. Sadly, their wealth makes them a prime target for men’s greed. The fight to protect them is a relentless struggle, and the people who lead it have become true heroes of our time.

    Everywhere on the planet cities seem to pop up and grow, sometimes despite climatic or geographical conditions that seem impossible to live in. How do people acclimate to lead a normal life?

    Follow Alexandra, a travel reporter, to meet those living in the most extreme cities of the world. The coldest, warmest, highest, most humid, etc. First stop in Yakutsk, Siberia and then La Paz in Bolivia,  to show the incredible adaptability of their inhabitants.
    Some are extremely cold, others extremely hot, very high, very isolated or incredibly densely populated. The planet already has dozens of cities which, seen from our perspective, do not appear to be very appealing places to live. And yet, people like them and live in them, unaware that their daily life is a feat in itself. 
    Journalist Alexandra Alevêque will experience life in some of the most extreme cities in the world, living in each one long enough to learn about the locals' way of life.
    What she brings back is an insight into humankind's incredible capacity to adapt and find behavioural and organisational solutions.
    What do these unusual cities look like?
    What is life like for their inhabitants?
    What can we learn from them?

    Far from the frenzy of urban life, DESTINATIONS is an invitation to enjoy the simple pleasure of traveling to the four corners of the world to discover places that inspired the great artists, resulting in an exchange between a land, a town, a landscape and a work of art.

    The Provence of Cézanne, the Brazil of Stefan Zweig, the Kenya of Karen Blixen, the Catalonia of Salvador Dali, or the Japan of Katsushika Hokusai. The series will also take in places fashioned by mankind which have become legendary in their own right, such as Jerusalem, Harar in Ethiopia, the hanging gardens of Singapore, and the iconic Route 66.
    DESTINATIONS tells how these places have evolved through history, and which cultures shaped their character, their monuments, their music and their gastronomy. In 13 minutes, these films combine learning with the pleasure of delightful images and unusual encounters with local figures and artistic sensibilities. This is an invitation on a slow voyage, to satisfy an urge for adventure, with some enlightening stopovers to fire the curiosity, inspiring one to pack one’s bags and immerse oneself in the experience.

    When one thinks of kangaroos, one thinks of Australia. And yet, they completed a fantastical voyage around the world, from North and South America, to Europe and Antarctica, before landing in Oceania. Where do the animals symbolic of each five continents really come from? 

    65 million years ago, dinosaurs perished, allowing the advent of mammals on every conti­nent. Over that time, climates have changed, continents have shifted, oceans and seas have risen and died out, new predators have appeared provoking the evolution of these animals and great migrations for survival often far from where they were first seen, from one continent to another.
    Scientists use the latest research of evolutionary paleontology to tell the 65 million year odyssey of animals we think we know so well: the monkey, the elephant, the horse, the bear and the kangaroo.
