The Light Before Christmas

After losing their way on a cold, blustery Christmas eve, two children, Katie and Makean, are rescued by their friend the Candleman—an old sage who imparts wisdom, hot chocolate and stories. Opening a weathered book, he begins reading the classic tale, The Night Before Christmas. Magically, Katie and Makean become characters in the poem.

Voyage to the top of the world, where a mama polar bear and her seven-month-old cubs navigate the Arctic wilderness they call home. Director Greg MacGillivray’s captivating, adventurous and intimate footage gets you up close and personal with the polar bear family’s struggle to survive in an environment of melting ice, gigantic glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic snowy peaks.

Meet a lonely snowman who is swept away by the magical wonders of Santa's Village, only to then wage war on Santa—jealous of all the attention Santa gets during Christmas time.

Island of Lemurs: Madagascar

Take a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar and discover the incredible true story of nature's greatest explorers—lemurs. Join trailblazing scientist Dr Patricia Wright on her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world.
