Smithsonian Channel with David Royle – It’s Brighter Here

At a time when most television channels have gone the reality route, the Smithsonian Channel has emerged as the source of some of the most exciting factual programming. Emmy award winning producer, David Royle, head of programming and production, tells how Smithsonian Channel launched as an HD, and now 4K, channel that embraces new digital platforms, and creates some of today's most wondrous and innovative natural history programs. From the largest aerial filming project in television history, to the world’s largest snake and the award-winning film about a young woman who swims with sharks, the presentation will combine amazing visual moments with the inside story of creating a new channel that combines entertainment with integrity and credibility.
