NDTV Profit’s Docs + is back with a new documentary featuring ‘Earth Focus’. The documentary is produced by Raisa Scriabine and will aim to put a human face on pressing environmental issues in South Asia.

 

Speaking on why there is a need to have such shows, the spokesperson for the channel said: “It is important to raise awareness on vital subjects that focus on key social or environmental issues in India, like child marriage, farmer suicides, water privatization, sustainable agriculture, female foeticide and trafficking of women.”

 

‘Earth Focus’ will investigate the relationship between human consumption and sustainable production methods in various regions of India, including Ladakh and the Sunderbans in Bangladesh. With soaring food prices, a growing population and changing climate, modern food production has to be commercially viable and involve sound environmental practices.

 

Docs+ is a new weekly series on the channel which will showcase powerful documentaries on global issues. The channel is expecting a good response from viewers as it feels that such issues are in the limelight now and people are ready to learn about them.

 

The show will go on air on August 11 at 10pm and will be repeated at 5pm on Sundays.
