Part of the popular and highly originally BBC “Spy in the…” series, Spy in the Woods is not just about one type of bear but several species, including the American Brown Bear, Polar Bear, and even the Giant Panda.
Like the other films in the Spy series, Spy in the Woods makes use of clever custom made camouflaged cameras that have each been developed to be used around each type of bear – without them knowing. Read more “Bears: Spy in the Woods”
Sharkwater has won over 20 international awards making it one of the most succesful documentary films in recent times.
This is a film that is both stunning and haunting.
Rob Stewart’s passion for sharks is clear. But like so many people today are now aware, we have to do more than just admire these magnificent animals. They are at real risk of extinction due to the trade in shark fins throughout Asia. Read more “Sharkwater”
Disneynature films might not be everyone’s cup of tea, particularly if you’ve grown up watching and enjoying more traditional documentary styles. But one thing is for sure – Disney provides an excellent way to get the kids involved in watching nature films.
Using the absolute best 3D technology available, as you would expect from the BBC, Tiny Giants 3D takes you down into the world’s little (and very cute) creatures.
As we live our lives almost completely unaware of the battles and challenges the world’s smallest animals face every minute of their life, there’s a lot going on. From mini wars, to romance, to behaviours that are as mysterious as they are amazing.
Unlike some of the older and legendary BBC titles like Life in the Undergrowth, which was focused almost solely on insects, Tiny Giants also includes small animals such as chipmunks. Read more “Tiny Giants 3D”
This 2010 Discovery Channel film is another in what has become quite a long line of animated prehistoric documentaries which have proven popular not only for their educational value, but for the stunning recreation effects used.
Discovery is at the top of the game when it comes to special effects and Clash of the Dinosaurs continues that legacy.
It runs in four separate episodes, each focusing on a particular aspect of dinosaurs from their survival mechanisms, to how some dinosaurs become such effective and feared predators. Read more “Clash of the Dinosaurs”
Join a passionate primatologist, a cameraman and a writer from their exotic treehouse in the middle of the jungle in Gabon as they spend their days looking for the not so famous monkey, the Red-capped Mangabey.
The trio a whole six weeks living in the treehouse and having to deal with the challenges that living in the dense forest brings, not the least of which are the large mammals below including forest elephants and buffalo.
This is more than a documentary; it’s a true adventure and really immerses you from beginning to end of the two hour feature.
This is an interesting boxset, with 375 minutes of footage dedicated specifically to aquatic life and environments. Not a big budget BBC or National Geographic production, Water Life makes up in substance what it might slightly lack in cinematography standards.
It is a special production developed in conjunction with a number of conservation groups like WWF, coupled with Caribbean International Networks. Read more “Water Life”
This four part series focuses on species that are at the top of the food chain in their respective habitats. A National Geographic film, Secret Life of Predators contains many of the usual suspects you would expect in a predator documentary, like big cats and birds of prey, as well some lesser knwon species like wasps.
