Climate Change: The Facts

Channel: BBC Earth (DStv 184)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Nature, Documentary

Climate Change: The Facts

We're just two degrees away from a climate catastrophe. If the rate of global warming continues, we'll reach the threshold for permanent environmental damage within 40 years.

Heatwaves from the Mediterranean to the Arctic. Wildfires running out of control across the USA. Rising numbers of heat-related deaths.

The evidence of climate change is all around us: it's happening now. But we have the power to prevent it.

Using dramatic user-generated content and emotional first-hand testimony, this documentary delivers the facts about global warming simply and strikingly.

Intimate stories get inside the lives of the people affected by climate change, and those fighting it. And world-leading experts reveal the developments that are redefining our horizons.

The documentary will provide an urgent look at the science of climate change and the potential solutions to this global threat, combining footage that reveals the already devastating impact of climate change on our planet, with interviews from some of the world's leading climate scientists.

How can cows eating seaweed save the planet? Why should we put power plants on water?

These inspiring stories show how we can take control of our future. This is the greatest challenge we've faced. And the human race can rise to it.

After one of the hottest years on record, climatologists and meteorologists explain the effects of climate change on both the human population and the natural world.

Scientists will forensically unpack the science behind the extreme weather conditions of recent years - which have seen unprecedented storms and catastrophic wildfires - as well as detailing how the accelerating rate at which the world's ice is melting is causing sea level rises, and how deforestation is exacerbating the problem of global warming by adding to CO2 in the atmosphere.

The film will deliver an unflinching exploration of what dangerous levels of climate change could mean for human populations, what is likely to happen if global warming exceeds 1.5 degrees and if major reductions in CO2 emissions are not made in the next decade.

The documentary looks too at potential solutions, exploring the innovations, technology and actions the world's governments and industries are taking to prevent further warming - and showcasing individuals who are creating change at grassroots levels.

The Real Housewives of Orange County

Channel: eReality (Openview 108)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Docu-Reality

The Real Housewives of Orange County

Docu-reality series set in the gated community of Coto - one of the wealthiest planned communities in America - and follows the lavish livestyles of several "housewives" and their families who live there.

The series follows a number of different housewives who lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community where the average home has a $1.6-million price tag and residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes.

The original Orange County housewives - Kimberly, Jeana, Vicki, Lauri and Jo - were used to the good life and would do everything they could to hang on to it.

The women each have their own personal story to share and they've granted an all-access pass into their lives, families, friendships, careers and homes.

From diamond parties to Botox sessions to the stress of having a high-powered career, the women take viewers along for the ride and into their real-life dramas that show how life isn't always perfect behind the gates.

Just what lies beneath the surface of this seemingly perfect community?

The women mostly live the good life, but also represent the modern-day version of the happy housewife, which today includes juggling the challenges of a stressful career with a busy family life.
