Global warming and climate change are here and the world is hurtling towards a crisis point. How much more abuse can the Earth take? What would happen to us if our water supplies suddenly dried up? How would we survive if our rubbish and waste matter were not collected? How would we cope without fuel for our vehicles? How would we survive without electricity or gas? Without radically reducing our consumption of four eco hotspots - energy, water, transport and waste - the consequences will be harsh - for all of us. This is a six-part reality series that lets viewers see what life could be like without all the things we take for granted.

Donkey In Lahore is an intimate documentary which follows a young man whose skills as a puppeteer took him on a journey that would unexpectedly change his life. While visiting the small town of Lahore in Pakistan to perform at a puppet festival, Brisbane-born Brian meets 17-year-old Amber. Ten years Brian's junior, Amber doesn't seem a likely match for the eccentric Aussie lad. Deeply engrossed in her Pakistani culture, Amber is a devout Muslim still living at home with her tight-knit family. Yet in a whirlwind two-week "romance", during which the pair are never alone together, they somehow manage to develop strong feelings for one another and Brian is convinced that the meeting was not merely a coincidence - it was destiny.
