National Geographic Australia & New Zealand this week launches a six-part documentary series from Essential Media and Beyond International, titled Nature’s Fury, which examines the devastating impact mother nature can have on us all.
The new series will premiere on National Geographic from Thursday June 11 2020 at 8.30pm AEST.
Nature’s Fury will examine how Australasia’s weather is evolving and mutating by reviewing some of the worst natural disasters over the past decade.
Nature’s Fury will also examine why events that were previously considered “once in a generation” have now become so commonplace.
Brendan Dahill, general manager for Essential Media said: “We are delighted to be working with both National Geographic and Beyond International to create a series that could not be more timely nor relevant right now – considering the extreme weather conditions we have witnessed here in Australia in the past 12 months – from drought, to bush fires and catastrophic flooding.”
Mikael Borglund, CEO & managing director of Beyond International said: “We are really proud to have worked on this series with Essential Media. As well as co-producing the show, we are also launching it to international buyers for distribution worldwide. Having experienced some of the worst natural disasters in our country’s history, I’m sure this series will provoke further interest from international viewers as well as those here in Australia.”
Nicole Keeffe, content & program manager National Geographic Australia & New Zealand, said: “This series showcasing how amazing yet devastating the Australian environment can be is something that all viewers of National Geographic can relate to. Essential Media has a great history of telling Australian stories so we are looking forward to bringing Nature’s Fury to our viewers.”
