  • Great White Shark
  • Documentary Film
  • 40 minutes
  • Film Synopsis:

    Get closer to the iconic predator we love to fear – the Great White Shark. You’ll feel as though you’re inside a shark cage and witnessing Great Whites leaping out of the water. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, this film shows you the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatized by its portrayal in the world’s first blockbuster movie, “Jaws.” 

    You’ll be amazed by researchers who tag Great Whites by simply holding their breath and free diving alongside massive sharks. Narrated by Bill Nighy.

    Five years in the making, this new National Geographic documentary presents audiences with a rare glimpse into one of the world's oldest and most beloved cities.

    JERUSALEM explores the intersection of science, history and religion in a city that is considered sacred by nearly half the people on Earth. Audiences are given a rare glimpse into the storied city as well as exclusive access to iconic holy sites - including the Western Wall, the Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Jordan River, the Sea of Galilee and the mountain fortress of Masada.

    Special access is one of the unique aspects of this film. Jerusalem has a longstanding, strict no-fly zone, but filmmakers were granted permission to capture aerial images over the Old City of Jerusalem and throughout the holy land.
