Factual SVOD service CuriosityStream has acquired more than 56 hours of documentary content from German producer-distributor ZDF Enterprises, including The Power of Volcanoes (pictured) and The Celts: Blood, Iron & Sacrifice.

The ad-free streaming service has picked up the two-part docuseries The Power of Volcanoes, which explores the events leading up to a volcanic eruption and how we can predict them. Cologne-based prodco Gruppe 5 Filmproduktion produced the 50-minute series.

The three-part The Celts: Blood, Iron & Sacrifice examines the life, work and struggles of the Celts during the Iron Age and Medieval Europe. The series was produced by ZDF and BBC, in association with ARTE.

Elsewhere, CuriosityStream has also secured the 50-minute one-offs Children of the Wild and World War A: The Human Chronicles.

Produced by ZDF in association with ZDF Enterprises, Children of the Wild studies documented accounts of feral children and probes potential cases in India and Africa.

World War A: The Human Chronicles, meanwhile, examines various predictions made by leading scientists about an alien invasion. The doc, from Story House Productions and ZDF, combines scientific theories and military defense plans with fictionalized first-hand accounts.

The Power of Volcanoes and The Celts: Blood, Iron & Sacrifice have currently been made available on CuriosityStream, with the remaining two programs expected to debut this fall.
