Hampi - Valley of the Kings - documentary about wildlife conservation in India
Between 2011 and 2015, we travelled the world to create four documentaries about subjects we really care about. The subjects are diverse but they are all inspiring stories about people trying to make a difference. We sought out a marine conservationist in Indonesia, a theatre teacher in Ghana, a conservationist in India, and a musician who cycled from England to Mali.
In 2017, we decided to release all of the films for free on YouTube so that as many people as possible can be inspired by these stories of amazing people having a positive impact on their communities and the planet.
We welcome any donations. Thank you.
You can see all of the films here, as well as some of our other documentary content:
The small village of Hampi was once the capital of an empire stretching across the whole of Southern India. But with the ancient city's fortifications in ruins, Hampi has little defence against the invading forces of development. In the last 15 years, tourism has grown 75% and now threatens the local community’s way of life and the rich diversity of wildlife that lives nearby.
Bobby Vallabhchandra owns a large swathe of land in Hampi and has turned it into a nature reserve, attempting to conserve a unique landscape in the face of growing industrialisation.
The film features amazing footage of leopards, crocodiles, wild bears and a host of other wildlife.
The Queen Uses Enormous Ceremonial Sword to Cut Royal Birthday Cake at Eden Project
'The Queen Uses Enormous Ceremonial Sword to Cut Royal Birthday Cake at Eden Project'
The Queen was presented with a giant cake in Cornwall to celebrate her official birthday.
Joined by the Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall, Her Majesty toured the Eden Project.
The botanical garden in Cornwall is currently hosting world leaders for the G7 summit.
After being shown around the centre, the Queen was offered the chance to cut her cake.
Despite a traditional knife being available, Her Majesty went for a more unorthodox method, using a ceremonial sabre to do the honours.
