Tibet: Roof of the World, takes an in-depth look and explores life on the highest mountain plateau on Earth. This beautiful and other worldly place is also one of the harshest on the planet. The special follows the lives of some of the iconic creatures that call it home. From Tibetan wolves struggling to raise pups in the rugged peaks, and rare snub nosed monkeys facing family dramas on the forest slopes to chiru antelopes that travel hundreds of miles to give birth while facing death, and hardy pika who tough out the elements all year, whilst under constant attack. Tibet: Roof of the World discovers how these extraordinary animals manage to not only survive but also thrive on the roof of the world.
Dean Johnson, EP and IFA Media partner commented, “Our China office enabled us to gain unprecedented access to one of the most difficult places on earth to film’. The result is a spectacular blue-chip special that will be enjoyed by audiences around the world.”
Commenting on the deals Nha-Uyen Chau, Founder & CEO of LGI Media added, “It’s a great honour to have brokered these international co-productions. Tibet: Roof of the World is an incredible program that explores and provides a fascinating insight into the inhabitants of one of the harshest places in the world.”
