    Olmsted and America's Urban Parks 151 years after Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) designed New York City's Central Park with Calvert Vaux, it remains an undisputed haven of tranquility amid one of the largest, tallest and most unnatural places in the world. This program, narrated by actress Kerry Washington, examines the visionary urban planner and landscape architect's impact on the development of America's first great city parks in the late 19th century.
    With incredible foresight, Olmsted brought nourishing green spaces to New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Louisville and dozens of other US cities. Throughout his working life, Olmsted and his firm carried out more than 500 commissions, including nearly 100 public parks. He believed parks should serve as vital democratic spaces, where citizens from all walks of life could converge and feel restored. Prior to officially committing to landscape architecture, Olmsted worked as a New York Times correspondent to the Confederate states, the manager of a California gold mine and General Secretary of the United States Sanitary Commission during the Civil War.
    Olmsted, a workaholic by today's standards, devoted the latter half of his life to creating green spaces for overworked city dwellers. Told in large part through Olmsted's own words (voiced by Oscar winning actor Kevin Kline), this film weaves together his poignant personal story and pioneering vision with contemporary footage of the lasting masterpieces he left behind.

    Queen's Garden Hidden behind security cameras and barbed wire are 39 acres of a secret wildlife haven like no other. It's the most biodiverse place in central London and it belongs to Her Majesty The Queen. But few have explored the remarkable plants and animals found here until now. There are a quarter of Britain's insect species, 300 wild flowers and 42 bird species in The Queen's Garden. Oxford Scientific Films was granted exclusive access to film in the royal gardens over a year across all four seasons from Fall 2013. For the first time ever, we'll capture every move of Her Majesty's "royal wildlife" using the latest camera technology. Miniature "Animal Cams" follow everything from pipistrelle bats to fledgling birds and bats. And we'll discover the intriguing, personal stories of the Royal Family's love of nature: the Queen's morning walks with her corgis. The film also includes bits of history, telling the stories of how the garden has changed over the centuries under the rule of different Kings and Queens.
