Father of three Brendon Prince, from South Devon, attempts to become the first person ever to stand-up paddleboard around mainland Britain – a challenge that many have tried, but none have achieved. Circumnavigate joins Brendan on his gruelling journey around Britain’s spectacular and often treacherous coastline, in an attempt to break five world records and raise awareness for water safety education.
Portugal’s exposed northwest coast produces powerful and challenging waves, which makes for a life and death moment for big wave surfer Alex Botelho during a surf competition. Mar is a tale of discovery, triumph and (almost) tragedy, but above all it’s a life-affirming celebration of surfing its original form – with exciting camera angles and stunning big-wave riding. You’ll be on the edge of your seat!
TIGER (SHARK) KING
More than 20 years ago, conservationist and diver Jim Abernethy discovered the ‘affectionate’ side of large predatory sharks after removing a fishing hook from the jaws of a tiger shark. Since then, he has removed thousands of hooks from sharks in the warm, clear waters off the Bahamas and has brought divers to safely encounter these apex predators with the goal of de-stigmatising sharks as mindless killers.
EYRE & SEA
At the remote Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, vast desert spills into roaring ocean and weather is king. It’s a pristine environment supporting a unique array of wildlife, including the endangered Australian sea lion. Here, in a town with a population of three, lives Alan. In a life shaped around the natural world, an unlikely relationship with a colony of seals has fundamentally changed him.
In Rebirth we meet Benoit, a surfer from the Basque country, fighting for his love of riding waves after a freak accident. Through perseverance and an upbeat spirit, the challenge to adapt develops Benoit both physically and mentally. His journey pushes him to relearn and find freedom from surfing once again, while inspiring new possibilities for the adaptive surf community.
IF YOU GIVE A BEACH A BOTTLE
Max Romey is a filmmaker and painter who uses a unique blend of watercolours and videography to tell stories. Inspired by a picture book, Max heads to a remote beach in Alaska in search of marine debris – and comes back with an entirely different story to the one he was expecting.
I AM OCEAN
I am Ocean showcases the inspirational story of Australian diver, oceanographer and underwater photographer PT Hirschfield, who’s successful 11-year battle with cancer has been fuelled by her passion for scuba diving, a deep connection with the underwater world, and a mission to save the wildlife at her local dive sites.
