This fall, National Geographic Channel’s Great Migrations seven-part global television event will take viewers around the world to follow the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure survival of their species. Shot from land and air, in trees and cliff blinds, on ice floes and underwater, Great Migrations tells formidable, powerful stories of the planet’s species and their movements across seven continents. To mark this historic programming series, NGC producer David Hamlin will join filmmaker Andy Casagrande, cinematographer Robert Poole, producer James Byrne, and associate producer Katie Bauer, and aquatic biologist Rory Wilson to describe the challenges and technological breakthroughs involved in creating a global experience in breathtaking, high-definition clarity. Post-film discussion moderated by Karen Kostyal, author of the series companion book.
