Yes, the airplane has changed our world, but do we really understand exactly how much? LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES renews our appreciation for this amazing invention as it stunningly conveys the wonder and grandeur of flying. Not that long ago, traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and products between any two points on Earth in a matter of hour s. Indeed, the airplane may be the closest thing we have to a time machine. Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, the film explores the countless ways the airplane affects our lives (even when we don’t fly). With a fascinating take on history, breathtaking visuals, soaring music, and a truly unique perspective, LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES shows the airplane in a fresh light as it takes audiences on a wondrous trip around the globe. LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES is narrated by Harrison Ford, produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), and features an original score by Academy Award® winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic).
As a boy, filmmaker James Cameron dreamed of a journey to the deepest part of the ocean. This film is the dramatic fulfillment of that dream. It chronicles Cameron’s solo dive to the depths of the Mariana Trench—nearly seven miles beneath the ocean’s surface—piloting a submersible he designed himself. The risks were astounding. The footage is breathtaking. JAMES CAMERON’S DEEPSEA CHALLENGE 3D is a celebration of science, courage, and extraordinary human aspiration.
On a thrilling ride, we spin back in time to an extraordinary prehistoric world: Alaska in the Cretaceous period, 70 million years ago – the last great flourish of the dinosaur era. BBC Earth invites you to come on a journey through the seasons, and experience a year in the life of dinosaurs fighting, feeding, migrating, playing and hunting.
Spring signals new life as many species of dinosaurs start to lay eggs, rearing the hatchlings to ensure a chance of survival. But as the young grow through summer, they are vulnerable to predators like the Troodon. Cool autumn months spur the dinosaurs to migrate, but not without risk from natural catastrophes and packs of Gorgonsaurs hunting. In winter, temperatures drop and the sun ceases to rise. As spring approaches, the mature dinosaurs go in search of a mate. For the Pachyrhinsaur, scientists believe the frill on its head could help to attract a mate or do battle with a contender. Once mated, the pair will migrate back to their nesting ground to start their own family.
With the most ambitious CGI visuals, this film reveals the story behind the lives of the dinosaurs and the challenges they faced in a constant battle of survival.
