Filming has begun for the Sky Original documentary Greenpeace Inside – Mission: Saving the Planet.
The five-part documentary for Sky Documentaries and NOW will take an in-depth look at one of the largest and best known environmental protection organisations, with unprecedented access to Greenpeace's full archive.
Activists and campaigners worldwide will be followed for over a year as they embark on their mission to save the planet.
Fifty years ago, the NGO launched its mission to stop the destruction of the planet, leading to some of the most iconic and moving environmental campaigns ever created.
From Brent Spar’s daring actions against whaling fleets, to incredible missions with hot air balloons, Greenpeace is known for its peaceful and bold, but not always legal, attention-grabbing actions.
The cameras follow the crew of the icebreaker “Arctic Sunrise” as they embark on a month-long journey off the coast of Africa to the ice of Antarctica, and go behind the scenes of Greenpeace’s most explosive and secretive campaigns.
They also highlight a lesser-known side of the organisation, including their legal campaigns, scientific work and political lobbying.
The documentary will also hear from Greenpeace’s vocal critics, who question if the NGO is current enough and can still have an impact on the media world when competing for worldwide attention with younger organisations like “Fridays for Future”.
Greenpeace Inside – Mission: Saving the Planet will air on Sky Documentaries and NOW in 2022.
