Abundance on a Dry Land

Learn rainwater harvesting techniques. In California and other regions affected by drought, agriculture is suffering from a lack of water and farms are being abandoned at an alarming rate. But some people have developed solutions to capture the rains that do fall. In this state and in many other dry regions around the world, land restoration helps water penetrate healthy soils and in turn increase crop yields. Even in dry areas, water which typically might run off can be harvested and stored in tanks, ponds and swales. By using gabions, biodiversity, mulching, pioneer trees, wild and domestic animals, swale systems, check dams, fruit forests, keyline plows, compost teas and many other methods, it is possible to restore the soil and design new productive landscapes. This film explores [...]

The Future of Food

In this edition of Make, Create, Innovate, we explore an area close to all our hearts or rather our stomachs; food and how technology is changing what and how we eat. We first explore how technology can help with the growing problem of food security and sustainability with an inventor who has developed an innovative approach to help stabilize fish stocks. His nets contain special portals that attract undesirable fish and those from endangered lists using special wavelengths of light. These fish are then able to escape the net and help replenish the population. And we travel to Barcelona to explore how food-preneur, Marius Robles and his Re-Imagine X group, are re-imagining the future of food with everything from 3D printed meals to a nutrition paste that could replace our normal meal [...]

Generation Earth: A Place to Live

Exploring how we have been redesigning the planet as we build ever more astonishing places to live. In Dubai, we climb to the very top of the world's tallest building—over half a mile above the desert sand—to help clean the highest windows in the world. In China, the rate of change is accelerating as millions move into the cities; to keep pace, they have learned to erect 30-storey buildings in under three weeks. The world is changing underneath our feet too; we dive beneath Mexico City with the two-man team whose unenviable job is to keep the city sewers flowing, before examining a very new-world solution to this age-old problem.

Generation Earth: Food Fire and Water

In this final episode, we examine what it takes to keep seven billion humans alive with food, energy and water. Forty percent of the Earth's surface is now devoted to growing food. To appreciate how we have transformed vast swathes of land to produce food we paraglide over the south coast of Spain to see an arid landscape that is home to the world's largest greenhouse array. We also ride with the cowboys on Brazil's largest cattle ranch, to help herd over 125,000 cattle. We visit Lake Mead, the biggest man-made lake in the USA, to see how it has helped us transform harsh desert into the bright lights of Las Vegas.
