In September 2019, two teams toured the south of Japan over a three week period. After visiting Nagasaki and the Goto Islands, the volcano Unzen on the Shimabara peninsular - one of the most fiery mountains - was the next attraction. There the camera crew around actor Oliver Hörner not only got to the bottom of the dangers and safety measures of Mount Unzen, but also the blessings of the volcanism: mineral-bearing as well as fertile grounds and hot springs.
The production in Hongkong in the beginning of October was dedicated to the ongoing rebuilding of the local infrastructure as part of the metropole's integration into the greater region of the chinese Pearl River Delta. Since Hongkong struggles with numerous environmental problems amongst others, an inventory of actions taking on sustainable energy generation and recycling consumer goods were therefore in the spotlight. It then became apparent: Hongkong is a city in a state of flux, with the strive for more democracy, social reformation and better environmental conditions determining day-to-day-politics.
Whether in the Australian Outback, in the urban canyons of Hong Kong, in the Rocky Mountains or in rural Lower Saxony: the team of blue planet tv is at home all over the world. In our travel magazines we present interesting and trendy destinations. It does not always have to be the Caribbean!
There are certainly many ways to bring exciting destinations closer to TV viewers. We have taken our own path and work with celebrities from film, television and sports. The result is our successful travel format "This is my ...". Each episode is a very personal travelogue, exciting and charming.
In addition to travel magazines, we also produce classic reports and documentaries. Our TV series "Myth Hong Kong" or - in 2017 - the documentary on AIDS orphans in South Africa are only two examples. In addition, we produce and design image films for TV, cinema and the Internet.
