Trees That Walk
The campfires of our ancestors. The ships with which we first explored the globe. Instruments, artwork, buildings, furniture - these are only some of our innumerable uses for wood. From cradle to coffin, we owe much to the second life of trees. But are we doing enough to protect them? Trees That Walk is a meditative, intricate exploration of the deep and enduring bonds between trees and people. Thought-provoking, haunting, and wise.

How to Save the World
As climate change continues to threaten our future, we travel around the world to explore the ways that young entrepreneurs are coming up with creative solutions, offering a fresh and positive insight into this global issue.

To have our political leadership ignoring it is ridiculous". In the face of such danger, young entrepreneurs all over the world are creati...

Left in Kathmandu
As the issue of Kathmandu's street children is undermined by political instability, one small orphanage stands as a beacon of hope. Bishwa Pratap Acharya had a choice, go into business and become a successful Nepali, or fight for the abandoned and orphaned children of Nepal.

Shot over a period of five months, Left in Kathmandu is an insight into a once powerful city and the amazing children who, with so much working against them, still maintain hope, joy and innocence.
