Like millions of people I have the next few Wednesday evenings mapped out already - I’ll be watching David Attenborough’s groundbreaking new series Frozen Planet. In the tradition of Planet Earth and Human Planet, this new BBC production is bringing extreme environments into living rooms across the world, with unforgettable sequences that take the viewer to the ends of the earth and into the habitats of extraordinary species.

VW film competition: classic Greenpeace films - Ancient Forests

Posted by Richardg — 12 August 2011 at 11:07am - Comments

This September, we're running a film competition. We need your help to turn the cameras on Volkswagen and expose their dirty lobbying against laws to reduce our carbon emissions in Europe.

In the past, Greenpeace has worked with some amazing film makers, and they’ve made really creative films to support our campaigns. So each week between now and the start of the competition, we’ll be digging through our archives and showcasing some of the best.

Greenpeace podcast: Attenborough and our own chief scientist

Posted by tracy — 9 May 2008 at 2:05pm - Comments

We made it, version two. Ok so it's not exactly fortnightly (it's not at all fortnightly), so we're going for the classic monthly format. In this episode I head down to Google's headquarters in London to hear Sir David Attenborough speaking about the access to information we have about the natural world through programs like Google Earth and the responsibility that comes with that knowledge. Bex talks to Fish (if you speak Mandarin that's peng yo gan tongshi) from Our office in Bejing about their chopsticks campaign, and Jamie speaks with our chief scientist about biofuels and the threat they pose to the climate. The podcast is presented by our very own James Turner (who lies, I have never been nor will be a fan of Jason Donovan).

Ancient forest destruction video

Can you imagine what it would be like to have your home torn down around you and destroyed? It's a horrible thought, but that's exactly what is happening in forests around the world. With an area of forest the size of a football pitch being destroyed every two seconds, endangered species such as gorillas, orang utans and chimpanzees are at risk of extinction within our lifetimes.
