Night on Earth
Another documentary series along the lines of Earth Moods. This nature series’ new technology lifts night’s veil to reveal the hidden lives of the world’s creatures, from lions on the hunt to bats on the wing and graceful squids.

Three More Programmes For A Slow Life

Painting With John
Part meditative tutorial, part fireside chat, this unscripted comedy series is directed by and stars cult favourite musician, actor, director, painter, and The Lounge Lizards co-founder John Lurie. In each episode, Lurie hones his intricate watercolour techniques and shares his reflections on what he has learned about life.
National Knitting Evening
The ultimate real-time knitting adventure, National Knitting Evening is twelve hours of Norway’s participation in an international sheep-to-jumper competition. It starts with shearing the sheep, then spinning yarn directly from the fleece (carding is forbidden). All this happens at the pace at which these tasks actually are accomplished. It is pretty riveting stuff. Spinning, knitting and cheery chat galore. Enjoy!
Headspace Guide to Meditation
Headspace takes a friendly, animated look at the benefits of meditation while offering techniques and guided meditations to jump-start your practice.

This is your new life at The Wine & Country Club, this is the right time to embrace the slow living movement.
