    Swords: Life On The Line takes cameras into the high risk world of New England's long line fishermen, who risk everything to catch an elusive prey in some of the most dangerous waters on the planet. These men and women are uniformly tough and resilient and they need to be as every day could be their last. The prey they hunt is the swordfish -- those magnificent giants of the deep that can weigh over a thousand pounds and are found in the waters around the Grand Banks off Newfoundland and the Georges Bank off the Gulf of Maine. These waters are also home to some of the wildest storms on earth. Swords follows four boats: The Eagle Eye II, Big Eye, Seahawk & The Frances Ann, as they head into these stormy waters hoping to hit the jackpot. The skippers of the boats use every bit of experience and knowledge they have to try and find the fish, at incredible risks. Even if these fisherman catche plenty of fish, they still have to make it home alive, and some never did. It's a gamble where lives are on the line and it's all caught on camera on Swords: Life On The Line.moreless

    This six-part series, developed by Framestore Ltd. and the BBC, follows the life of Earth's greatest life forms through their reign over the Mesozoic world, from their humble beginning in the late Triassic, to their fall in the Cretaceous. Along the way, we are also witnessed to their reptilian cousins that ruled the seas and air during this fantastic time in Earth's history. Though one must keep in mind that the stories are mere speculation, the filmmakers enlisted the aide of scientists to provide them with as many facts as possible for this series. Walking with Dinosaurs scored the highest ratings for a cable series ever when it aired on the Discovery Channel. The series won an Annie, two BAFTAs, a Broadcasting Press Guild award, three Emmys Awards for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming More Than One Hour), Outstanding Sound Editing in Non-Fiction Program & Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special (out of six nominations), the Peabody Award, three Royal Television Society awards, a TV Quick Award, a Television and Radio Industries Club Award, and a Young Artist Award. Since this series aired, it has spawned several follow-up series, including The Ballad of Big Al, Walking with Beasts, Walking with Cavemen, and at least three specials hosted by naturalist Nigel Marven.moreless

    Miami is a vacationer's paradise with its beautiful beaches, myriad of outdoor activities and sizzling nightlife. Yet, the city is situated in the center of a giant swamp making it a Garden of Eden for snakes and other overgrown reptiles - many not native to the area. Snakes are everywhere, and the potential for a snake to strike is at an all-time high. One hundred percent of backyards in Miami and throughout South Florida have snakes; you just can't always see them. Not to mention, dangerous alligators, aggressive iguanas and Africanized bees. Animal Planet takes to the front lines of this daily combat in SWAMP WARS introducing the only team with the fearlessness and knowledge to battle these vicious and often venomous creatures - Venom One. The Venom One team is an elite group of specially trained fire fighter/paramedics within Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. It's the only emergency response team of its kind, and it currently holds the largest and only anti-venom bank available for public use in the United States. SWAMP WARS follows the intensity and urgency of their daily clash with nature as this courageous team takes down killer snakes, rushes against the clock to deliver anti-venoms and ultimately saves lives.moreless

    The History Channel
    Life After People: The Series is a speculative documentary TV series developed by the History Channel as a what-if look on what would happen to Earth if humanity no longer existed, including the affect its disappearance would have on not only the environment, the human-made inventions, and any of the human-affected areas of the world. While the cause of humanity’s disappearance is never stated, the series picks up immediately after the departure, showing the slow degradation of manmade constructions like office buildings and bridges and the eventually progression of nature, including the outspread of flora and fauna and the evolution of natural predators, from a day to centuries after the initial loss. Scientists, anthropologists, and other experts give their opinions on what would happen to a number of factors, including deadly viruses, formerly human-controlled populations of animals, buildings and bridges, and machines of war, with each passing year. Each episode also explores sites from around the World that had been abandoned for one reason or another, like the nuclear devastation of Chernobyl, a 900-year-old vacant Cambodian temple, and a geologically instable Italian town of Balestrino. Life After People is an interesting exploration of humanity’s effect on the planet and Earth’s ultimate evolution after we are gone.moreless

    BBC Two (ended 2005)
    Rough Science takes five scientists to a remote location where they are set challenges to be undertaken with only basic equipment and whatever they can find or extract from the local environment, although a few special items are sometimes provided. US publicity called it "Survivor meets Junkyard Wars", though Rough Science actually went into production before Survivor. From a British point of view, the show fits into a similar niche to that occupied by the 1980s ratings-winners The Great Egg Race and Now Get Out Of That!, as well as belonging to BBC2's portfolio of "popular science" shows alongside such hits as What The Romans Did For Us and Hollywood Science. The scientists who take on the challenges cover most of the major specializations; the regular team comprises a chemist, a physicist, a botanist, an engineer and a geologist. Rough Science demonstrates how different specialisms can come together to solve scientific problems - or, conversely, how a problem can be solved from more than one angle. What rivalry exists among the scientists is purely of the friendly kind, in fact it's obvious that they're all good friends and their camaraderie is one of the things that makes Rough Science such a success. The team's challenges have thus far always taken place somewhere very hot or very cold. The first series took the original team - including Anna Lewington and Vanessa Griffths, who do not appear in the later series - to a secret island location, and their first task was to work out where in the world they were. For the second series, American Ellen McCallie replaced Lewington as the team's resident botanist, and Kathy Sykes also made her debut, around the same time that she began presenting another series from the same stable, Ever Wondered About Food?. This time the setting was a Caribbean island and the tasks were more technology-based. The third series was a complete contrast. The same team were sent to New Zealand, where they were set tasks on a gold-mining theme. Amid spectacular glaciers, they were set the challenge of finding enough gold to make a piece of jewelery, with four of the six episodes dedicated almost entirely toward this goal. Having used numerous different approaches to find gold (including a search for "buried treasure"!), the team eventually achieved their goal, and the pendant they made was given away in a competition on the Rough Science website. For the fourth series, it was back into the heat. Based near a NASA testing ground on the edge of Death Valley, the team (now including geologist Iain Stewart) faced a series of challenges on the theme of space exploration, with high points including Ellen's "moonwalk" in a spacesuit built from scrap material, and a closing rocket-building challenge with a memorable finale. Note that when shown in the USA, the first two series were combined into one, with the order swapped round so that the second series episodes appeared first. The third and fourth series were similarly combined into a single, 12-episode series when they appeared in the USA the following year. Jonathan Hare's website provided details of filming dates for the various series.moreless

    Hogs Gone Wild is the Discovery Channel series that takes viewers to the front lines in a war against feral hogs. The adrenaline-packed series shows expert trappers tracking and fighting against aggressive and dangerous boars. Most people don't know that these boars can be a danger to homes, farms, and even urban backyards. The free-roaming wild hogs are increasingly destructive and invasive, with an unbelievably high reproduction rate where two hogs can produce 44,000 new hogs in just five years. Weighing in at up to 800 pounds with a top speed of 30 miles per hour, these hogs are not your average swine. With no natural predators, they can easily survive without fear, and often will charge humans that they come across. The hogs and the problems they bring now extend into 44 states, and could become one of America's worst environmental catastrophes if left unchecked. That is where the animal removal companies come in, and viewers ride along with three of the toughest companies in Texas, Hawaii and Florida. Watch as these crews do battle with the deadly hogs on Discovery Channel's Hogs Gone Wild.moreless
