Welcome to the new, improved NATURE site…more for the NATURE viewer to do and enjoy.
First, we’ve added a lot more content including behind-the-scenes updates from filmmakers, news about upcoming episodes and a selection of full episodes online. Next, we want to hear from you. At the bottom of every post you will see a ‘commenting’ tool. Use it. Tell us what you think, what you like or dislike, make suggestions or just add a comment. Do you have an idea for a NATURE documentary? Pass it along.

Usually, behind-the-scenes action is as interesting as the finished film — so, I want to share with you the experience of shooting underwater lava from the Hawaiian volcano, Kilauea. The film will air next winter, but the footage is very recent and cameraman Paul Atkins’ account of filming ‘fire underwater’ is pretty amazing.
So, pick up a snorkel and fins and read on…
