The North American premiere of a four-part documentary series Blown Apart:Windfarm Wars begins Sunday October 9, 2011 at 8 pm ET on TVO.
Directed by Jeremy Gibson and produced by Sevenstones Media for BBC, this timely four-part documentary series examines what happens when a wind farm of nine 120-metre high turbines is planned to be built on a sensitive English landscape. Filmed over four turbulent years, the series reveals a deeply divided community and explores in candid and intimate detail a story that goes to the very heart of the question of renewable energy, our attitudes towards it and the future for on-shore wind power.
Of special interest to naturalists will be the focus on the impact to bird populations and the destruction of scenery. Don’t miss this new and controversial documentary.
