Equator From The Air (360G-Wellcome-210563_Z_18_Z)
We plan to make a four part television series for the BBC entitled Equator From The Air. It has been commissioned by the BBC, and is slated for broadcast on BBC Two in early 2019, in a primetime slot. The series will see television presenter Gordon Buchanan will travel around the Equator. It will be an accessible and beautiful series with an emphasis on aerial photography, but the substance will be Gordon exploring how the world is changing through the eyes of scientists and locals. The series will contain a mix of stories about wildlife and people. 25 minutes of content across the series would explore issues relating to human health. We have been working with Sophie Tunstall-Behrens of the Our Planet Our Health team, who has put us in touch with several scientists whose work we intend to feature in the finished programme. We fully expect that the series will raise awareness of how climate change is currently affecting human health, vulnerable communities and wildlife.
