Among The Stars

Big News-TV and Film, movies, Stewart Pink, TV

Coming soon to Disney+ this six part original docuseries series follows Nasa Astronaut Captain Chris Cassidy as he prepares for and embarks on one last space mission.

With intimate footage, personal video diaries and livestream footage — stationed both on Earth and in space — we gain a rare insight into the work of an incredible team of engineers, flight controllers and specialists who take on dangerous and awe-inspiring missions that quite literally push the limits of mankind.

Following the teams’ successes and failures over the course of two years, “Among the Stars” provides raw, behind-the-scenes access to the critically important NASA mission of repairing a $2 billion science experiment, the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), which aims to reveal the origins of the universe. To repair the AMS, Cassidy and his team must undertake a series of complex spacewalks, but the story quickly becomes a tale about the broader team at NASA, their roles on this daring mission and the immense pressure to succeed as the mission becomes uncertain when the world goes into lockdown from COVID-19.

Filmed across the globe on location from NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston to the European Space Agency in Cologne to the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency outside of Tokyo and the Russian Space Agency in Star City, the series captures the true scale of a global effort and goes beyond the spacesuit, as we are transported to meet other astronauts and engineers from around the world.

“Among The Stars” captures the last bastion of the previous era of space travel through shuttle astronauts, gives us a sneak preview into what the future holds with NASA’s plans to return to the moon, and how new commercial partnerships are pushing the agencies and mankind further into space.

“Among The Stars,” from Fulwell 73 premieres on Disney+ on 6th October.

Big News-TV and Film, movies, Stewart Pink, TV

Coming soon to Disney+ this stunning new four part original series from National Geographic premieres on Earth Day, 22nd April and is awash with never before seen moments. Produced by legendary filmmaker James Cameron and narrated by Sigourney Weaver the series sees two lifelong conservationists reunited for the first time since Avatar.

Filmed over 3 years in 24 global locations this groundbreaking new series ventures deep into the fascinating world of whales as we witness the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures to reveal life and love from their perspective. Throughout this epic journey we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than we ever imagined.

Secrets of the Whales unveils new science and technology to spotlight whales as they have never been seen before. Featuring the expansive knowledge and skill of acclaimed National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Brian Skerry, we witness how whales make lifelong friendships, teach clan heritage and traditions to their young and even grieve for the loss of loved ones. This is a personal story that very few are lucky enough to witness … until now.

The series includes scientific breakthroughs and never before seen moments such as evidence suggesting that Belugas give themselves names so groups can keep track of each other; baby belugas sharing their moms’ call signs, 30,000 humpbacks charging down the coast of Australia towards Antarctica and using breeches to talk to each other, the first cross-species adoption ever recorded; Beluga pod adopts narwhal as part of the pod and the first ever recording of a baby sperm whale feeding.

A sperm whale calf is recorded feeding for the first time ever.

With a beautiful soundtrack composed, produced and mixed by Raphaelle Thibaut, the three-year project will also be featured in the new National Geographic book, Secrets of the Whales, now on sale, and the May issue of National Geographic magazine, The Ocean Issue. 

“Secrets of the Whales,” from National Geographic begins streaming on Disney+ on April 22.

Finding Netflix’s Hidden Christmas Content

Features, movies, Stewart Pink, TV

With the big C just around the corner and most of us having spent the majority of this year devouring every box set, blockbuster and B-movie on the watch list, 2020 could be a big year for Christmas films. As always, Netflix has you covered with a huge catalogue of options from old classics to new releases and everything in between. However, to manage such a massive library, menus are curated by algorithms that only show you what your Netflix account thinks you usually enjoy… not much good when Christmas only comes around once a year!

So to save you from repetitive strain injury and a fruitless 30 minute scroll through the menus here’s a top secret tip to find some new (and old) festive favourites. All you need to do is log in to your Netflix account on an internet browser (use a computer: not on your TV or app) and copy this address followed by any of the codes below: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/

Add any of these codes to the end of the address above to start browsing a category. When you find something you like, add it to your list and it’ll be waiting for you next time you fire up your TV or app. You can save next year’s Christmas too if you add this web page to your favourites; we’ll make sure the codes are up to date next year.
