Are you stuck in class or at work, and can’t get out and do something for Earth Day? Pivot-participant media is going to stream 24-hours of shows for its “Earth Day” marathon of environmentally focused programs about our precious planet. Starting at 5:00am, the day will be filled with captivating shows and documentaries on the Earth. The marathon will include airings of Future of Water and Last Call at the Oasis, History of Earth, The Great Invisible, and original programs such as “Fortitude” and “Angry Planet.”
- The Future of Water is the future of humankind. How water will run in our societies will determine the future of our environment, power relations, the balance between rich and poor, war and peace and the destinies of countries and continents. Nobody can escape the consequences.
- Last Call at the Oasis looks at the global water crisis facing our world, illuminates the vital role water plays in our lives, exposes the defects in the current system and shows communities struggling with its ill-effects.
- History of the Earth details how Man first started cultivating the land, which forever altered living conditions, our way of thinking and lifestyle. These changes affected religious and political developments and global distribution of power.
- The Great Invisible examines the crisis through the eyes of oil executives, survivors and affected Gulf Coast residents affected by the Deepwater Horizoin oil rig spill on April 20, 2010.
- “Fortitude” is the most northerly town in the world, and the most peaceful – until a prominent member of the community is found eviscerated in his own home, and suddenly the town’s sheriff has his first ever murder to investigate…
- In “Angry Planet” storm chaser George Kourounis traverses the globe tracking severe weather and its scientific relation to climate change. George jumps into the heart of the action investigating up-close the fiercest natural phenomena the Earth has to dish out.
