strange days on planet earth
season one

This partnership with National Geographic raises public understanding about how individuals are interconnected to our planet’s life systems. The inaugural 4-part PBS series, hosted by Academy-award nominated actor Edward Norton, earned 14 major film festival honors—including Best Series at Wildscreen, the environmental equivalent of the OSCARS®. Strange Days has been possible thanks to generous support from The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, National Science Foundation, and the ITT Corporation. In 2007-2008, Strange Days will focus on global ocean and freshwater issues.
