10 years ago Planet Earth changed our view of the world. Now we take you closer than ever before. This is life in all its wonder. This is Planet Earth II. A decade ago, the landmark television series Planet Earth redefined natural history filmmaking, giving us the ultimate portrait of life on Earth. Planet Earth II, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will reveal our planet from a completely new perspective, using significant advances in both filming technology and our understanding of the natural world.

A film about the turbulent relationship between an Icelandic surfer and the North Atlantic wind.
The reality of growing up a surfer in Iceland is different from anywhere else in the world. It’s a harsh place. There are no surf shops, guidebooks or webcams. But being so far removed from the hustle and bustle of the known surf world hardens Iceland’s surfers to confront the issue they all must face: the North Atlantic wind.
A couple years ago Dane Reynolds tucked his left knee while doing an air in Mexico. We’d never seen a surfer do it like that. And I remember Curren Caples — who was probably 15 at the time — was one of the first people to say that it was one of the first airs in a long time that a skater would appreciate. Since then, surfing and skating have begun to intertwine here and there, with at least a layer of appreciation exposed. Curren Caples is one of this generations most stylish hybrids to emerge from this old romance. More professionally known as a skateboarder, Curren has a distinctly poetic and tweaked style in transition and has developed his street skating in recent years as seen in his Flip 3 part. He surfs extremely well and it’s fascinating to watch the different approaches he brings to each. An ode to Nathan Fletcher’s ability in surfing and skating, using them to influence the other.
Ace Kvale turned 60 last fall, and to celebrate, he planned a 60-day, off-trail backpacking trip around Utah's Canyon Country, leaving from his front door. He had a dozen friends join him for different sections of the trip, and one friend who joined him for the whole thing: his blue heeler, 10-year-old Genghis Khan. They covered more than 400 miles on their journey, and Ace wore one pair of shoes for the entire trip: Vasque Inhalers. Filmmakers Forest Woodward and Brendan Leonard captured the trip, and Genghis and Ace's special relationship, in the short film "Ace and the Desert Dog."
