APRIL 2012

Every Day is Earth Day


NATURAL WONDERS

Joseph Sinnott/©WNET

Every year on April 22, people across the world celebrate Earth Day. On Nature, the award-winning series produced by THIRTEEN and now in its 30th season, every day is Earth Day. Each week, the series brings the beauty and endless wonders of our planet to viewers, capturing the world’s ecosystems and their varied inhabitants in intimate detail. Series Producer Bill Murphy spoke with THIRTEEN about the dedication and detail that go into the creation of television’s premier natural history series.

Q: Why does Nature continue to attract so many viewers and filmmakers? A: I think it’s because we’re committed to finding the most interesting stories in our genre, spending the appropriate time researching and developing films, and working with the best filmmakers in the natural history business. Filmmakers tell me they love working with THIRTEEN and the Nature team because they trust our guidance and support and we can tell our stories without commercial interruption. That’s a real luxury in today’s media landscape.

Q: What qualities do you look for when considering story ideas and proposals? A: Some of the things we think about are: Is this story right for Nature and will it hold our audience’s attention? Does the producer have the talent, access, and experience to make the film? Although Nature is known for story-driven natural history films and stunning cinematography, we also feel it’s important to address topical stories as we did in Salmon: Running the Gauntlet, which looks at endangered Pacific salmon populations. We’re also attracted to stories that give our viewers an inside look at an environmental situation

You can catch a special encore presentation of this film Wednesday, April 25 at 8 p.m.

that may otherwise be offlimits, such as Radioactive Wolves, which examines the health of wildlife populations in Chernobyl’s radioactive exclusion zone.

Read the complete interview with Bill Murphy at thirteen.org

Q: Is there a program you’re particularly excited about in the 30th anniversary season? A: One of my favorites is My Life as a Turkey, the true story of “turkey mom” Joe Hutto. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend streaming it from thirteen.org. It’s must-see TV. I’m also very excited about our pipeline of films in production for our 31st season, so stay tuned!
