Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet (Now on Netflix)

Narrated by David Attenborough, this documentary follows the scientific journey of world-renowned scientist Professor Johan Rockström. It tells the story of the most important scientific discovery of our time - that humanity has pushed Earth beyond the boundaries that have kept the planet stable for 10,000 years, since the dawn of civilisation.

The 75-minute film takes the audience on a journey of discovery of the nine planetary boundaries we must maintain, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity.  It offers up the solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support system.

Sweet Tooth (Now on Netflix)

This new show, produced by Robert Downey Jr. and based on a DC comic series, takes place ten years after a mysterious virus wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids - babies born part human, part animal.
