 Fish Meat: Choose Your Farm Wisely- The age of fish meat has arrived. The seas are running out of fish, and aquaculture has stepped in to meet rising global demand for seafood. But what exactly is farmed fish? How is it made? Is it good or bad for the environment? Two friends, an ecologist and an engineer, take a scientific voyage along the sparkling coast of Turkey to pull back the cover on modern fish farming. They experience the tragedy of tuna ranching, a successful nursery for sea bass, trout ponds elegantly terraced into a hillside, and an enormous fish feed factory, before finding hope for the future at a traditional mountain carp pond.

The Surprise Salmon- A school of Alaska’s sockeye salmon have found a breach leading to the heart of a volcano. Navigating the sulphurous waters, bears, sharks and vultures, they escaped the Earth’s wrath to give birth to descendants that continue this epic journey.
