THE AGE OF NATURE is a three-part documentary series, for PBS and BBC Studios Distribution.  This forward-thinking series explores how an increased awareness of the natural world is leading to a new chapter in the story of both humanity and the planet. With stunning photography, the series focuses on the resiliency of Earth’s ecosystems through stories of success, as scientists, citizens and governments act to fix past mistakes and restore the environment. With the current pandemic exposing the fragility and vulnerability of humankind, the balance of nature and our relationship with it is more important than ever. Narrated by Uma Thurman in the US and Anna Friel for international sales, the premiere of THE AGE OF NATURE is PBS starting October 14-28, (check local listings) on PBS, pbs.org and the PBS Video App.
