A new perspective on the Serengeti, from Global Ideas
Our team from Global Ideas has never shied from adventures. They have been to the forests in New Guinea and Guyana, in the Favela in Rio de Janeiro, the coral reefs of Vanuatu and the streets of Mumbai. But the latest webdoc takes on even more unchartered territory – with a virtual safari in the Serengeti. Reporters from Global Ideas spent two weeks in May on the East-African savannah and recorded a majestic world. They witnessed the wildebeest migration and got close-up lions, zebras, rhinos and many other colourful creatures. The Serengeti is also in danger and the documentary brings experts together to explain how vulnerable this precious natural reserve really is. The project was produced in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS).
Serengeti – Toward an Uncertain Future combines breathtaking photography with high definition video and audio to give you a fascinating multimedia experience, deep inside the animal kingdom.

New webdoc from Global Ideas
With its latest webdoc, DW invites children young and old to explore the underwater world in the South Pacific with Namati – a young coral off the coast of Vanuatu. Namati’s World is the latest webdoc from the Global Ideas team. It offers spectacular underwater video footage and a story full of suspense. Namati tells the story of her amazing experiences off the coast of Pele Island in the Pacific archipelago nation of Vanuatu. At 114 years of age, Namati is still a child. Brain corals can live to be over a thousand years old – that is, if they can withstand the effects of global climate change such as the warming of the world’s oceans.
