The Unboxed Media-made series (6 x 60 minutes / 6 x 30 minutes)  identifies various “tipping points” around the world that could potentially destabilize the climate system. In each episode, host Bernice Notenboom (pictured), a polar explorer and climate journalist, is joined by international environmental scientists as she travels to locations including Greenland, Brazil, India, Australia and the Antarctic.

Electric Sky has sold the series to Portugal’s TVI, Turkey’s Bugun, Italy’s Discovery, Norway’s NRK, Latin America’s Pramer, Denmark’s DRTV, Sweden’s SVT and Chello (Spektrum) for Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
