BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit preps Big Cats

BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit celebrates the world’s top predators in the upcoming series Big Cats.

The three-part series looks at the behavior of the big cats, as well as the insights they give us into the secret lives of the elusive small cats.

For more than two years the Big Cats team has travelled to 14 different countries and filmed 31 out of the 40 species. Cats featured in the series include the Canada lynx in the frozen North; the Pallas’s cat in remote Mongolia; the mysterious swamp tiger of the Sundarbans and the rusty-spotted cat of Sri Lanka.

Big Cats looks to uncover their social side, their complex communication, parental care, courtship, and reveal how cats survive and thrive in all four corners of the world.

Alex Gibney doc No Stone Unturned heads to VOD  

Distributor and producer Kew Media Group has released Alex Gibney’s latest documentary feature No Stone Unturned on all major video-on-demand platforms in North America.

Gibney’s doc looks at the massacre that took place on the evening of June 18, 199, in a pub in the small village of Loughinisland in Northern Ireland, where six men watching the World Cup game were shot and killed by two men, with five others were injured.

No one was ever charged for the crime, and for more than twenty years the victims’ families have searched for answers. Gibney works to connect the dots between the murder and official malfeasance.

With No Stone Unturned, Gibney sets out to uncover the truth behind the massacre and reveal why the case was not properly investigated.

No Stone Unturned is a Fine Points Film in association with Jigsaw Productions and Kew Media Group.
