Eating Animals

Nearly all of the meat, eggs, and dairy we eat comes from the industrial system known as “factory farming.” This system destroys our environment and harms public health, and never before has humankind caused more suffering. Based on Jonathan Safran Foer's critically acclaimed book of the same name, EATING ANIMALS spotlights the heroic farmers, whistleblowers, and innovators who are standing up...

Five Seasons

“For me, garden design isn’t just about plants, it is about emotion, atmosphere, a sense of contemplation. You try to move people with what you do. You look at this, and it goes deeper than what you see. It reminds you of something in the genes — nature, or the longing for nature.” – Piet Oudolf...

The Ponds

In a world of constant flux and chaos, it's almost a shock to discover some experiences remain natural, unhurried and unchanged. In the middle of metropolitan London lies Hampstead Heath, 320 hectares of forest, parkland, wildlife plus three swimming ponds. People swim in them all year round, whatever the weather, just as they did in the time of Keats and Constable, and our cameras filmed them ove...

For ten years or more...

Two fearless women, children in tow, take charge and lead the growing protest in their community, repeatedly facing imprisonment and violence. Shot over six y...

Resilience

The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation.

With vivid home movies and archiv...
