How Earth Made Us: Deep Earth
Explore the relationship between the deep Earth and the development of human civilization. The exploration reveals that throughout history our ancestors were strangely drawn to fault lines; areas which connect the surface with the deep interior of the planet. These fault lines gave access to important resources, but also brought with them great danger.

Natural Curiosities: Remarkable Regeneration
Some animals can do the seemingly impossible. Salamanders can regenerate entire legs and tails to replace ones they’ve lost, while deer shed their massive antlers and re-grow them from a few remaining cells each year. How do these animals regenerate entire body parts and why is it not possible for all animals to do the same?

A BBC Production. Hi-Def Cinema from CineMuse.
Driven by a passion to seek culture inspired by nature, scientist Rob Butler takes us on a journey through the Salish Sea that begs the question.. “what would it take to re-connect?” RETURNING began as a sailing journey where we searched for people whose lives and livelihoods were connected to the natural world of the Salish Sea. Over two years in the making, RETURNING will whet the appetite of viewers who savour a new pact with nature and those who have fallen for the siren call of the Salish Sea. By Mike McKinlay
