The Making of PBS’ Nature Series EarthFlight
What would it be like to see the world from a bird’s perspective? State-of-the-art technology and sophisticated camera techniques have now made it possible to do just that and more as EARTHFLIGHT, A Nature Special Presentation takes viewers on a breathtaking aerial adventure over six continents.
It took EARTHFLIGHT series producer John Downer and his team four years to film more than 100 bird species in 40 different countries. Using strategically placed cameras, including tiny HD cameras placed on the backs of trained birds, this six-part series captures amazing viewpoints that have never been seen before.
MetroFocus spoke with Fred Kaufman, Executive Producer of WNET’s series “Nature,” about the final part of the six-part series.
The sixth and final episode of Earthflight, “Flying High,” airs Wednesday, October 9 at 8 p.m.
