Infonation announces the launch of a new television series and internet project, Earth On The Edge. Earth On The Edge will focus on the scientific and social aspects of climate change and aims to become a comprehensive resource for proactive responses to global warming. The project, which is based on the proven success of our science and technology series The Edge, will introduce extensive web broadcast elements and involve international viewer participation. The project represents our recognition of the dynamic changes effecting distribution and the need to develop more engaging formats to address global audiences.
New for 2006, Infonation Media is embarking on a prime-time documentary series for mainland China. Letter Home will be produced by Infonation in the UK and will be originated entirely in Mandarin Chinese. This is Infonation’s second Chinese language series and is destined for an existing syndicated documentary strand shown throughout China. The completed series is expected to reach a first run audience of 110 million viewers.
