Together the two award-winning documentaries, “A Journey in the History of Water”, and “The Future of Water”, include almost seven hours of footage from more than 30 countries all over the world. The programs present fascinating, varying and detailed accounts of human/water relations and the importance of water in social development.
The future of water in 3 parts (52 minutes each), exploring the implications of a growing, changing world for this important resource. These are the only films available presenting a comprehensive narrative of the role of water in history and development. Rather than pushing a specific political or ideological agenda, they give a balanced, though dramatic account of humanity?s use, dependence and dilemmas pertaining to water. The story is told by Terje Tvedt, University of Bergen and Unifob Global, a historian and professor in Geography and Political Science who has researched issues of water for several years (see for example his books on the River Nile and ?A History of water? series, published by IB Tauris, London and New York). Both documentary series have won prestigious awards and have been bought by TV-channels all over the world, as well as by hundreds of universities and institutions. Narration: English and Norwegian
