THE TIPPING POINTS IS SET TO SCREEN IN AUSTRALIA 23RD MARCH 2014 ON CHANNEL 34 NITV/SBS
The Tipping Points takes NITV viewers around the planet to visit the most extraordinary natural wonders that have been the homes of Indigenous peoples for thousands of years, to try and better understand how much of our climate system is changing.
The groundbreaking documentary series directed by Liz Courtney and hosted by Bernice Notenboom, polar explorer, climate journalist and the first woman to climb Mt Everest and traverse the North and South Poles, follows a group of scientists to discover what and why environmental changes are occurring.
It features Australian Indigenous climate ambassadors Narelle Long and Malcolm Lynch, who in 2012 were the first young Indigenous peoples to set foot in Antarctica, in the final episode that explores the future of Australia’s natural environment.
The term “tipping points” follows the concept that small change can be enough to affect a fragile climate system. When the natural world is pushed past the “tipping point”, it could potentially lead to a chain reaction.
“NITV brings The Tipping Points to your screens a week before Earth Hour 2014, which aims to bring people together to raise awareness about the importance of looking after our environment,” said NITV Channel Manager Tanya Denning. “The wonders of the world are integral to our people, whose spirituality is entwined with the land and who are brimming with traditional wisdom as custodians of the land.”
The Tipping Points meets with a number of leading international environmental scientists, including Professor Matthew England, Peter Cox and Yadvinder Malhi, to explore the collapse of the Greenland ice sheet, melting of the Himalayan icecap glaciers, dieback of the Amazon rainforest, shutdown of the Atlantic Thermohaline Circulation, the melt of the Permafrost in Siberia, and the impact this is having on the myriad of local communities and all those in between.
Earth Hour 2014 will be held from 8.30pm – 9.30pm on March 29, 2014.
The Tipping Points coming soon on SBS/NITV – first episode 8.30pm on Sunday 23rd March.
