MOST DRAMATIC NATURAL EVENTS ON THE PLANET FEATURED IN EPIC SIX-PART PREMIERE SERIES, NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS

�- Reunion of PLANET EARTH Co-Production Partners; Filmed Over Two Years, Series Premieres May 29-31, 2009 �

(Los Angeles, Calif.) � Each year, the planet is transformed through some of the most breathtaking natural events across our ecosystem, triggered by seasonal changes on a grand scale. These dramatic natural visual spectacles will be brought to vivid life in a new six-hour high-definition series, NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS, premiering on Discovery Channel on May 29, 30 and 31. The series is a co-production of BBC and Discovery Channel �- the partners that brought PLANET EARTH, the most lauded natural history series of all time, to the screen.

NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS immerses viewers in unique natural phenomena across the globe, dictated by dramatic shifts in seasons, vast climate changes, powerful storms and mighty floods, in greater detail than ever seen before. Each episode spotlights not only changes to the landscape but also the powerful and intimate stories of the animals caught up in them. Using cutting-edge technology utilized to such success in PLANET EARTH, the series is set in the world's most iconic wilderness areas �- from the flooding of the Okavango Delta in Africa to the great summer melt of ice in the Arctic and the massive annual bloom of plankton in the northern Pacific Ocean.

"This remarkable series takes the pulse of the planet itself," says John Ford, president and general manager, Discovery Channel. "The combination of the latest in high-definition filming techniques with the incredible skills of this production team, allows us to show the world these seasonal phenomena in ways we've never seen before."

NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS features advanced time-lapse and macro photography on the ground, in the air and underwater. High-tech, high definition stabilized camera mounts were utilized, often for the first time for a natural history film, on microlights, helicopters and boats alike. Filming the series in the midst of such intense natural phenomena and wild and dangerous weather proved a considerable feat. In addition to the advanced technology, there was also the most formidable challenge of all: being in the right place at the right time to capture the action.

Filmed throughout 2007 and 2008, the NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS filmmakers captured remarkable moments in the lives of wildlife, including tiny grizzly bear cubs emerging from their den in snow-covered mountains, baby elephants struggling to survive against drought and lion attack in Africa, humpback whales hunting as a team, the world's largest concentration of dolphins and sharks gathering off the coast of South Africa and polar bear families navigating their way on ever-thinning ice.

NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS is a BBC/Discovery Channel co-production. For BBC, executive producer is Brian Leith and series producer is Karen Bass. For Discovery Channel, executive producer is Susan Winslow.
