    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

    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."

    Hosted by reformed ex-burglars, Matt Johnston and Jon Douglas Rainey, It Takes a Thief tests the home-security of the average home owner by staging actual burglaries to reveal security shortcomings. In each episode, Matt and Jon search for a location to rob. In the first season, Matt would speak to the owners and convinced them that it would be a good idea to have their house robbed. Matt would then have the owners show him what security they did have in place. Then the homeowners would lock up and would join Matt in the production van to watch the break in on closed circuit TV. In the second season, the producers would approach the owners and in most cases, Jon would break in while the owners weren't home and Matt would watch the break in alone. The homeowners would then be shown the tapes upon returning home. In both seasons, after a walkthrough of the house, the homeowners had the opportunity to meet Jon and have him answer their questions of how and why. After all of the property was returned and the mess cleaned up, Matt would return with a team of security experts then give the property a full security makeover complete with everything from locks to landscaping. A few weeks later, Matt and Jon returned and Jon tested the new security system by attempting to break in once again. After premiering in 2005, It Takes a Thief ran for 2 seasons and is currently on hiatus.moreless
