PBS sets premiere dates for upcoming Earth Month programming – Realscreen

To celebrate Earth Month in April, PBS is premiering nature and environmental programs exploring the impacts of climate change. The programming will continue into the fall on PBS, PBS.org and the public broadcaster’s video app.
Changing Planet is one new title highlighting the slate. The program, which premieres April 20, is the first entry in a global storytelling effort led by conservationist Dr. M. Sanjayan that monitors climate change in six locations around the world — California, the Maldives, Cambodia, Kenya, Iceland and Brazil — each Earth Day for seven years.
The PBS documentary series ‘Frontline’ will premiere a three-parter titled The Power of Big Oil from April 19 to May 3, covering the oil industry’s relationship to climate change. The series investigates what scientists, corporations, politicians and the public have known about climate change for decades, and the missed opportunities to mitigate the problem.
“As a trusted voice in the science and natural history space, PBS and its member stations have the unique ability to assist in deepening the dialogue about the future of our planet on air, across our digital platforms and in local communities,” said Bill Gardner, PBS vice president of multi-platform programming and head of development.
“What happens in one part of the world is relevant to us all, and PBS is committed to airing programs that inform and empower audiences not just during Earth Month, but all year long.”
PBS’ Earth Month programming will be available on all station-branded PBS platforms, including its website and video app. The programming joins other Earth Month titles on PBS like the American Arctic documentary airing on its Nature program, and a new entry in the Weathered series about sea-level rise.
Other new environment-themed titles planned throughout the year include a two-part documentary on Californian wildlife and environment titled Planet California; a six-part series from author Baratunde Thurston titled America Outdoors with Baratunde ThurstonThe Green Planet, a five-part documentary on Earth’s plant life featuring David Attenborough; and The Pride, a documentary that follows a lion family’s fight for survival.
