    Rise of The Wild, Season 1 | Episode 1

    Episode 101 of The Primitives dives straight into the world of wild living as six individuals tough out winter in America's backwoods and swamps. Everyone is in search of food, but the winter weather is making the hunt difficult for some. In the Blue Ridge Mountains, primitive woodsman Thorn struggles to find even a trace of wildlife to turn into a meal. Meanwhile, close by, homesteaders Tony and Amelia battle the cold in their small cabin, making use of any meat they can get their hands on. Down in a river-swamp in southern Georgia, modern frontiersman Colbert shows his expertise when he catches something big near his river-swamp home. And across the country, in drought-stricken central California, primitive hunter Gabriel sets his sights on small game. Disappointed with the results at first, his luck soon changes.

    Space Station, Season 2 | Episode 3

    This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have enabled the worlds biggest space station the International Space Station to be built. The International Space Station orbits 200 miles above our heads, hurtling around the Earth at seventeen and a half thousand miles an hour. It is one of the greatest engineering feats of all time. Its crew performs vital experiments that will one day allow humans to live permanently in space. A test bed for future missions deeper into space, the space station could enable future generations to journey throughout the Solar System or even live on Mars. This film explores how the space station was made possible through a series of five engineering breakthroughs. The film features five landmark space stations that have contributed innovations to allow engineers to build bigger and explore the wonders of space travel. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these structures and the inventions that have pushed the boundaries of science. Five ingenious leaps forward that enabled space stations to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World

    Polar, Season 1 | Episode 3

    Step inside the most frigid habitat known to Earth - the poles. Here, the planet's ultimate survivalists include whale-hunting polar bears, leopard-seal dodging penguins and a pack of Arctic wolves that bring down a pair of musk oxen. Polar species have evolved bodies and behaviours that help them combat the intense hostility of their habitats. But now, their world is changing so fast - literally breaking apart under their feet - and their resilience will be tested beyond the extreme.

This film explores how the prison was made possible through a series of four historic engineering breakthroughs. The film explores the inner workings of four landmark prisons, including the formidable Tower of London and infamous Alcatraz Island. Each features a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to build more and more secure prisons. The film explores the development of perimeter fortifications, layers of surveillance and impenetrable cell design. Using stunning CGI animation, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these prisons and the inventions that have enabled them to become more secure. Four ingenious leaps forward that enabled prisons to become SAFER, TOUGHER and BIGGER.

    Building The Channel Tunnel, 1

    The Channel Tunnel linking Britain with France is one of the seven wonders of the modern world but what did it take to build the longest undersea tunnel ever constructed? We hear from the men and women, who built this engineering marvel. Massive tunnel boring machines gnawed their way through rock and chalk, digging not one tunnel but three; two rail tunnels and a service tunnel. This was a project that would be privately financed; not a penny of public money would be spent on the tunnel. Business would have to put up all the money and take all the risks. This was also a project that was blighted by flood, fire, tragic loss of life and financial bust ups. Today, it stands as an engineering triumph and a testament to what can be achieved when two nations, Britain and France put aside their historic differences and work together.
