    For filmmaker Rob Stewart exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth. Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas. Filmed in visually stunning high definition video Sharkwater takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands Ecuador. In an effort to protect sharks Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala resulting in pirate boat rammings gunboat chases mafia espionage corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges forcing them to flee for their lives. Through it all Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey and how despite surviving the earth's history of mass extinctions they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed. Stewart's remarkable journey of courage and determination changes from a mission to save the world's sharks into a fight for his life and that of humankind.

    We might think humans are the most powerful living thing on Earth, but it's plants that time and again have set the agenda for life. All animals rely on plants for their survival. This is not an accident - they are the most powerful evolutionary force on Earth. Plants enabled amphibians to leave the water, they had a hand in the rise and fall of the dinosaurs, and they ensured the ultimate triumph of insects, mammals, birds and even us - all for their own benefit. Because plants have only ever had one goal - the total domination of the planet. It is a story of ruthless ingenuity, seduction and deception; of unimaginable power and ambition. An epic tale, How to Grow a Planet offers a stunning new perspective on Earth history.
