Socially Minded Documentaries

  1. Since we first learned how to point and speak, our knowledge of plants has constantly expanded.

    Kew called on us to help explain a digital revolution taking place within their quiet walls. A small team of their dedicated staff are leading by example and digitising their data to a single online resource. Our job was to put some perspective on the scope of this endeavour.

(The background photograph is of Kibera, the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Homes in Kibera are shacks of corrugated metal, with no plumbing or electricity. 20,000 children in Kibera can't afford to attend public school, due to the cost of books and uniforms. HIV/AIDS devastates the community.)
