This visually arresting two-part documentary looks at the everyday lives of conservationists across the globe. Grant Burden protects the elephants and black rhinos of the Serengeti. Liu Yidan hunts down illegal bird trappers and traders. In Norway, Fredrik Myhre is combating overfishing. All of them are motivated by a shared passion: to save our planet – often at great personal risk. Footage of burning forests and heavily armed personnel looks like it was shot in a war zone, while other images reveal swathes of as-yet unspoiled nature whose pristine beauty takes our breath away.
