    The Human Face is a four-part scientific documentary TV series developed by BBC that focuses on the science behind the face, including facial beauty, facial expressions, and its importance in perception, creativity, and sexuality. Actor, comedian, and intellectual extraordinaire John Cleese takes on the task to unlock just what secrets are hiding in the unique mask of a person's face. Part One focuses on cultural identity and gender as Cleese shows looks into family resemblances and the purpose a face can have in telling of a person's history. Part Two centers on fame and the iconic looks of Princess Diana, Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe, and Cleopatra. What is it about the face and its beauty that allows it to sell products? Part Three delves into the question of beauty and its affect it has on people's interactions. What is the unconscious perception of big eyes, smooth skin, and symmetrical features? Part Four digs into the idea of micro expressions and the face's ability to communicate beyond words. With twitches, quirks, and immediate facial reactions, the face holds a number of expressions and all it takes is knowing how to read them.moreless

    Big Ideas is a four part series with intimate interviews from some of the most notable minds at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. In 2004 producer Larkin McPhee brought us a truly groundbreaking miniseries, hosted by science journalist Ira Flatow, that focuses on four main topics. Exploring the Cosmos opens up discussion about everything from extra terrestrial life to the ever fascinating subject of black holes. In the segment Einstein's Dream, Flatow sits down with a litany of notable physicists to discuss Albert Einstein's quest to find a unifying theory to the Universe. A New History of the World allows for topics of war and culture to be thoroughly dissected, and Thinking Big treats the audience to a fascinating conversation of the parallel between math, biology, and everything in between. Some of the most interesting discussions are in store for all of us, with countless videos available to get our fill. Big Ideas, presented by New York public media provider THIRTEEN, is truly a remarkable and one of a kind broadcast.moreless

    In the early 1990's, the United States Navy began a series of covert sonar tests that were linked to mass die-offs of whales washing up on beaches around the world. These beachings were well-publicized, but startling amateur video and photographic evidence - much of it never released until now - suggests that whales were not the only creatures affected by the Navy's sonar. In 1997, scientists monitoring underwater microphones recorded a mysterious sound deep in the Pacific Ocean, a sound from an unidentified creature unlike any other animal recorded. What made that sound, dubbed "The Bloop," has remained one of the greatest mysteries of the oceans, until now... as Animal Planet presents the CGI, two-hour special Mermaids: The Body Found.moreless

    Steve the star was born after a chance encounter with his friend, a television producer who was filming in the Park for TV. In true Steve style they took a punt and the first documentary, "The Crocodile Hunter" was produced in 1992. The tremendous success of this one program quickly encouraged the making of more and so over the next 3 years, 10 one hour episodes were made and on television screens all over the world. Steve has now filmed 50 episodes of "Crocodile Hunter", 52 episodes of "Croc Files", and his next project will be an animated series. WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE CROCODILE HUNTER SERIES? Steve: "Our aim is to continue producing more wildlife programmes to entertain and enlighten. We'll take the audience to some of the wildest and remotest territories in the world. The time has come when all of us must be accountable. We don't own the planet Earth, we belong to it. And we must share it with our wildlife. It's obvious that every man, woman and child can contribute to the well being of our native wildlife and the planet through simple day-to-day stuff such as recycling, chemical and pollution awareness, and not wasting water. Terri and I eat, sleep and live for wildlife. Our love, passion, and devotion is to educate and share with the world our magnificent - often threatened or sometimes threatening - wildlife. Our job in this world is to bring misunderstood and feared animals (as well as the cute and cuddlies) right into your house, so that we can share and learn about the world's wildlife.

    Terri: "Steve and I are very lucky to live and work with what we love best. Zoo life definitely has its ups and downs but there is nothing else we'd rather be doing. It's our goal and our passion to open everyone's hearts to love and care for wildlife for generations to come."
