Amazon takes wildlife to Japan


Amazon has picked up a package of 4K wildlife and nature content for its Prime Video service in Japan, one of a host of deals signed off at Mipcom by Canadian producer and distributor Blue Ant Media.
Amazon has taken four series from distribution arm Blue Ant International’s expanded ultra high-definition catalogue. The package includes Great Parks of Africa and Africa’s Wild Horizons (both 6×60’).
Amazon followed its streaming rival Netflix by launching Prime Video in Japan last year.
The deal helps make up 300 hours worth of programme sales from Blue Ant announced in Cannes today.
New partnerships with international broadcasters include 240 hours of ultra-high-definition natural history content going to AB Group for its Ultra Nature channel in France. A two-year deal will see Blue Ant deliver 200 hours of docs as well as 40 hours of wildlife and nature scenes.
Elsewhere, LeTV in Hong Kong has picked up more than 20 hours, including The Big Feed (13×30’), which goes behind the scenes at some of the world’s top zoos.
Now TV in Hong Kong, meanwhile, has taken Kenya Wildlife Diaries, which showcases The Lewa Reserve, home to more than 1,500 animals, including some of the rarest and most dangerous species on earth.

The Crows of Japan





If you thought the sky was safe, think again. In Japan, the sky and pretty much everything beneath it belongs to the crows.

Now you’re probably thinking: “Silly little crows? Oh come on, they’re not scary at all!” We’re not talking about any “silly little crows” here. We’re talking about Japanese crows (known askarasu), 0.6-meter-long (about 2 ft) intimidation machines found all over Japan that don’t rely on just their appearance and shrill call to horrify passerby, but their terrifyingly high level of intelligence as well.
