In the countryside of southern China, a team of French cave divers are the first to explore and begin to map what could be the largest underground limestone karst system in the world. This discovery convinces the local government to develop diving tourism rather than industry. It's a tremendous gamble. But in China, everything is possible ... and that is what they want to prove. They dared explore beyond frontiers and could change the very way we look at the Earth.

AQUA INCOGNITA is a human adventure, a journey into the bowels of the Earth, to reach something undiscovered in ourselves and others.

Coral bleaching, driven by rising sea temperatures, has grown from isolated, regional events to become a global threat. If we are to have any hope of saving the world's coral reefs alive for future generations, a new strategy is needed. Increasing seawater temperatures have resulted in global coral bleaching events that threaten the world's coral reefs. THE END GAME follows the most recent wave of bleaching, and highlights the efforts of scientists to find a way to save the world's reefs before it is too late.
