"Life in Colour with David Attenborough"
Flame Distribution will be presenting over 100 hours of new programming from a robust slate of documentary and factual content during the upcoming Digital MIPTV market.
“We have a stellar line-up for this market. The pandemic has definitely propelled the demand for content especially relating to nature and wildlife to a whole new level. Working closely with various producers and seeing how they have creatively navigated the filming of these productions reminds us of how privileged we are to work in such an incredible industry,” said Fiona Gilroy, Content Sales & Acquisitions Director, Flame Distribution.
Flame will be shining a light on the premium 3-part documentary series "Life in Colour with David Attenborough", presented by the world-renowned natural history icon as he reveals the extraordinary ways that animals use colour. The series is produced by Humble Bee Films and SeaLight Pictures for the BBC, Netflix, Channel 9 and Stan.

With catastrophic global consequence, a super-eruption at Yellowstone could trigger an ice age event causing long-lasting climate change, plunging the world into a nuclear winter, destroying crops and impacting the global economy. Produced by Wildflame Productions for Discovery+ and Channel 5.
The catalogue also features a selection of new factual titles such as "The Bizarre Pet Vets" (6x1 hr) produced by Metamorflix for Channel 9, which sees Dr James Haberfield and his team apply their exotic expertise to treat the most bizarre and beloved animals in Australia.
