The premiere of a new documentary Wild Edens: Russia the first in a new series that highlights the issue of climate change, took place in Sochi, Russia. Brought by Rosatom, it will be broadcast by National Geographic starting this summer.
Focusing on the flora and fauna in the one-of-a-kind natural habitats of Russia, the programme highlights the unique and delicate habitat of the Altai Mountains, the Kamchatka Peninsula, and the Arctic.
Filmed over 12 months, the 1 x 60 documentary, an Off The Fence production, will air across multiple markets in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Europe.
“We want to draw the public’s attention to the global warming crisis and showcase the detrimental impact that mounting CO2 emissions generated by carbon energy sources are having on our planet”, – Rosatom Director General Alexey Likhachev said.
Executive producer, Off The Fence productions Ellen Windemuth, said: «Russia is such a vast and elusive land that we relished the opportunity as film makers to capture the unique footage of this incredible region. This documentary helps viewers to discover Russian’s rich natural wealth and catalogue it before this fragile paradise is negatively and possibly irrevocably impacted by climate change”.
