DD to host new green series

NEW DELHI: Doordarshan will telecast a new series titled Earth Matters, from 4 February. The series will be telecast on Sundays at 11 am on DD National (DD-1), a press statement from the national broadcaster said today.

Earth Matters is a series made by internationally renowned film maker and conservationist Mike Pandey (the only Indian to have won three Green Oscars in addition to a host of prestigious international and national awards).

The series will take the viewer on a journey across India, looking at some of the biggest issues that are facing the planet, and the human race at the same time looking at the many wonders that nature has.

The series brings the viewer closer to nature increasing their understanding of delicate balance that exists within it, it looks at the recent destruction and also looks at ways to help protect and conserve our natural world for future generations.

In an attempt to make the programming informative and educational, Earth Matters focuses on contemporary issues and covers a wide range of subjects.

From the underwater world of corals and exploring the marine life to a look at the endangered species, including the tiger, the series takes a broad view at public interest programmes on health issues, environment and wildlife, and sensitising people at the grassroots levels, and how their actions can make a positive difference.

Earth Matters has been shot using the latest specialty equipments and after extensive research across India. 

The prime objective of the series is to alert the individuals and create awareness about the threats that our world is facing today and encourage each one of us to make an effort towards conservation of our natural environment.
