The Show

A documentary series (5 x 52 minutes) from Sky Studios
Produced by M.E.Works and Constantin Documentation
In cooperation with ThurnFilm

The film team accompanies activists and campaigners for a year on their mission to save our planet - worldwide and with exclusive insights. For the high-end documentary, Greenpeace is granting exclusive access for the first time to previously unseen footage selected for the five-part Sky Original, consisting of archive material with 18,000 tapes spanning 50 years. Not only is the crew of the icebreaker "Arctic Sunrise" accompanied on their month-long journey from the coast of Africa to the eternal ice of Antarctica. Spectacular actions planned in advance with the utmost secrecy are also accompanied at close quarters. But the hitherto lesser-known side of Greenpeace can also be seen: with legal campaigns, scientific work at the highest level and political lobbying right at the heart of power. Critics of the environmental protection organisation also have their say, giving a differentiated assessment of the NGO's role.
