TRACKING ARCTIC GIANTS

DIRECTED BY ALEXIS BARBIER-BOUVET | DIDIER NOIROT

The hope in the Frozen North

All along the Arctic coast of Norway, there’s a bloody battle going on between three different species: orcas, whales…and humans! And it’s all over the vast schools of herring that migrate to the Frozen North to seek shelter there in the fjords.  Follow Didier Noirot, one of the world’s greatest underwater cameramen as he tracks down the giants of the deep – and dives right into the heart of the hunt.

Orcas – or “killer whales” – have developed what is called the “carousel” technique for catching herring: they surround them with bubbles then drive them up to the surface. But now the other whales are no longer scared of joining in to claim their share of the booty. Then there are the humans, with their huge nets: they too are after the same prize.

So who’s going to win the Herring War?

24H WITH SHARKS

DIRECTED BY ALEXIS BARBIER-BOUVET | DIDIER NOIROT

Sharks Day…

They’re everywhere, in every ocean in the world, and they’re always busy, both day and night.

 They’re hunting; they’re mating – brutally; they’re massing together in great hordes; they’re cooperating in astonishing ways with other species, often other predators; and they’re even – on occasion – as docile as lambs, such as when they go to get themselves a good clean-up. All over the world, their fascinating behaviour is there just waiting to be filmed.  Galapagos sharks… white-tip and black-tip sharks… sand tigers sharks… silky sharks… hammerheads… Greenland sharks… whale sharks… and of course the famous great whites: each and every species comes up with its own tactics for hunting, reproducing – in short, for surviving.

 We’d like to propose an undersea journey around the world with these great predators, each of them with its own codes, habits and survival strategies.

Ocean’s battle

Since the end of the 19th century, the world’s major naval powers have pioneered increasingly powerful fleets of warships. The oceans have become strategic battlegrounds. These ships have been designed to outperform other warships, resist attack and match the firepower of any formidable enemy. But these Clash of the Titians have rarely been captured on film, and the wrecks of some of these defeated giants can lie hundreds of metres below the surface of the ocean. Yet, luckily, some these steel monsters have been given new life as floating museums or teaching ships and can be found all over the globe. They bear witness to the technological advances of their age, the developments made in naval engineering in the 20th century, and the history of war at sea. These floating superstructures are the forebears of our aircraft carriers, battleships and modern destroyers, which still play an important strategic role in global politics today: the command of the sea.

By retracing the history of these legendary ships, this innovative television series, which features previously unseen archive footage as well as photorealistic 3D models in 4K, will immerse the viewer and take them to the heart of the naval battles that made history.

NEW GUARDIANS OF NATURE

A film by Sylvain Garassus

Umbrella species

Today, no one can ignore the critical state in which the planet finds itself in: the extinction of species, deforestation, water pollution, and the exhaustion of natural resources. Yet no one has found a miracle solution to halt this impending disaster. The enormity of the subject is probably too vast to tackle. How can we even begin to reconcile human development and nature conservation?

Scientists have devised a new conservation strategy: identifying and preserving a handful of animal species as a priority, which have been chosen for their effect on the environment as a whole.

By concentrating efforts on the protection of these ‘umbrella’ species, a virtuous circle is created, which in turn will restore the balance of the whole ecosystem. Crocodiles, seals, tigers, turtles, pandas and a few others and now ‘umbrella’ species and have inadvertently become the new custodians of nature!

THE EDGE

A FILM BY THIERRY ROBERT

The final frontier

For centuries, an imaginary line has demarked the outer limits of the Arctic Circle. One just had to travel past a certain latitude and consider the territories above this line as the Far North. Today, with climate change, all of these certainties have been called into question. This natural climatic barrier must now be redrawn.

From the Torngat Mountains of Labrador to the Chukochya River in Yakutia, via the Hudson Bay and Alaska, the only way to find this geological boundary is to travel through these territories in the summer months and then again in the winter. By carefully observing the different ecosystems at different times of the year, it should be possible to establish where the boreal forest stops and the tundra starts, and then exactly where the tundra ends and is replaced by endless ice.

It will be necessary to establish where the last few trees are located. With this knowledge, it will then be possible to draw this new physical boundary line encircling the Arctic region, and with it register that this natural boundary is also a highly-strategic geopolitical boundary.

THE FIREFLIES PROPHECY

DIRECTED BY Sarah Del Ben

The reflection of a world

In several parts of the world, fireflies are threatened with extinction.

In China, which are very popular for bringing a little magic to various celebrations, a vast traffic has developed. In Malaysia, their reproduction has become a real tourist event, creating many problems for the survival of the species. On the other hand, in the small village of Piedra Canteada, Mexico, villagers have developed a reasoned eco-tourism to observe this breathtaking spectacle, stopping the logging of their region from 60 to 70%. Finally, in Japan, fireflies have become THE national symbol of environmental conservation and many firefly festivals are organized each year to celebrate this great collective effort.

These four intertwined stories symbolize the questions that arise about the biodiversity of our planet. How can man’s hand lead to the extinction of a species or, on the contrary, preserve it? How can eco-tourism lead to the extinction of its financial resource?
