LIVING OUR YEARS DANGEROUSLY! ‘Years of Living Dangerously’, a gripping Emmy Award-Winning multi-part series on climate change, premieres on Monday, 13 April 2015 on the National Geographic Channel
Each year, Earth Day is celebrated on 22 April, marking what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement, which began in the United States of America in 1970. Today, Earth Day is celebrated internationally as an on-going effort to fight for a cleaner and more sustainable planet.
In conjunction with Earth Day, FOX International Channels (FIC) brings ‘Years of Living Dangerously’, which won Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series in the 2014 Emmy Awards as well as being the first honouree of the 2014 Environmental Media Awards, to awaken our social consciousness and inspire us to make a change.
‘Years of Living Dangerously’, the multi-part television series on climate change and its impact on people, will make its debut on the National Geographic Channel on Monday, 13 April 2015 at 11pm.
Over the course of nine episodes, the show will chronicle celebrities like Jessica Alba, Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, America Ferrera, Mark Bittman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, to name a few, going into the field to speak to real people who are dealing with the crippling effects of climate change-related weather events.
“In line with our efforts to bring viewers the best of entertainment first, we are pleased to air the premiere of ‘Years of Living Dangerously’ in celebration of Earth Day. What’s exciting about the show is that throughout the nine episodes, viewers will get to follow these well-known celebrities investigating the impact of climate change and trying to get to the root of the problem,” said Ms. Penny Tan, Marketing Director of FIC.
“The programme intends to spark an interest and create awareness on the realities of climate change and its actual impact on our lives, and the lives of millions around the world,” she added.
Said to be the biggest story of our time, the series will feature gripping, character-driven narratives with uncertain outcomes, the politics of global warming and the efforts made by individuals, communities, companies and governments to find solutions to the problem.
