Green.tv

green.tv is a broadband TV channel for films about environmental issues. It is managed by the film production and web development agency, largeblue, with key partners the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)and Greenpeace International.

Content is shown via 10 different content streams - Air, Land, Water, Technologies, Climate Change, People, Species, News, Kids and Features - as well as 'Partner' channels.

In addition, about a quarter of the films on green.tv are made 'in-house' by largeblue.
