- Environmental & Wildlife

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, H2O The Molecule That Made Us dives deep into one of the most critical issues affecting our planet: the fresh water supply. In the emptiness of outer space, Earth is alive because of water. Yet it turns out the notion of running out of water is not so far-fetched. This 3-part broadcast, digital series, and global engagement campaign dramatically reveals how water underpins every aspect of our existence. Segments from across the planet, intimate documentary, and natural history cinematography combine to uncover dramatic discoveries and compelling characters and deliver important stories about this mysterious molecule. Honored for Best Limited Series Long Form at the 2020 Jackson Wild Media Awards and Best Series at the UK’s Wildscreen Festival 2020 Panda Award, H2O The Molecule That Made Us was selected from 600 entries received from over 30 different countries in these two of the world's top Nature Media competitions.
