In April 2014 a team from the League Against Cruel Sports, made up of campaigners and investigators, made their way to Malta along with Wildlife Expert and League Vice President Bill Oddie.
Every spring a massacre takes place in Malta as thousands of migratory birds stop off on the island to rest during their migration.
During spring hunting (shooting, but termed ‘hunting' locally), any birds that make their way to Malta are faced by thousands of hunters with the sinister motto ‘if it flies, it dies'.
This film seeks to expose the persecution of migratory birds that the League team witnessed first hand.

This half hour film in eight parts explores a lifestyle that includes delicious, healthy food while tackling many of the ethical and global challenges of today.

If human food consumption continues on the current scale, in 2050 the world will be in need of three earths to feed us all. More and more scientists agree on the need for a more plant-based diet. Lisette Kreischer - Dutch vegan foodie - and documentary maker Mark Kulsdom intend to tackle this challenge and have set their eyes on seaweed as the food of the future. Together they head to New York to immerse themselves in the world's finest vegan culture in search of the perfect seaweed recipe.
