As originally produced for - and broadcast on - PBS, the documentary program Nature: The Silence of the Bees travels back to the winter of 2006, when an odd and enigmatic phenomenon transpired in the entomological realm: millions of honeybees vanished without a trace from their hives, thereby putting the global food supply at risk and rendering untoward acres of crops extremely vulnerable to externalized threats. Tragically, this phenomenon continued far beyond the initial season in which it was discovered. Silence of the Bees carries audiences to a series of locales where the catastrophe continues to transpire, including hives now vacant and fallen. It also ventures into scientific laboratories, where entomological researchers race against time to prevent the complete and permanent extinction of the honeybee as they search for the reasons behind its demise. The program then provides a detailed exploration of the insect's history, its role in influencing human diets, and the potential losses wrought if honeybees vanish from existence altogether.

As originally produced for - and broadcast on - PBS, the documentary program Nature: The Cheetah Orphans witnesses a remarkable phenomenon. When two baby cheetahs are orphaned (their mother devoured by a lion), documentary filmmaker Simon King travels into the grasslands and assumes the role of "surrogate mother" - teaching the cubs basic survival skills, observing quietly as the creatures undergo the successive stages of maturation and social development, and preparing emotionally for that bittersweet day when he must reintegrate them with larger packs of cheetahs and relinquish regular day-to-day contact - thus severing the emotional bonds established between himself and the cubs.

As originally produced for - and broadcast on - PBS, this documentary program argues that the titular beasts represent one of nature's most remarkable species. The direct product of a global Ice Age, and the descendant of the traditional brown bear, the polar bear (or ursus martimus ) learned to adapt to subthermal environs with astonishing ease and rapidity. But all is not well for these majestic creatures: as global temperatures peak and the ice slowly melts, the polar bears' sources of food are dwindling, and the beasts have begun to evince signs of intense anguish that foreshadow a dire and deadly period for it. With rapidly increasing ecological threats posed to the arctic regions, then, the polar bear's very existence may be threatened. Yet, ironically, warmer temperatures mean happier times for grizzlies, which find it difficult to thrive in subthermal climes; with rising temperatures, they may eventually, it seems, begin to usurp the polar bear's position as king of the Arctic. This program travels to the said regions, evaluates the impact of global warming on polar bears, and speculates on the future for these wondrous beasts and for traditional land grizzlies.
