In April 2021, Apple released an unprecedented documentary on Apple TV+, called “The Year the Earth Changed”, this docu-film showed how the absence of human activity during the first confinement was beneficial for the planet. Unsurprisingly, this high-quality content caught the attention of the Television Academy Award jury.
Apple TV+ wins another award
It’s not just Ted Lasso finding success at prestigious awards shows, other original Apple TV+ creations are coming to get noticed and distinguish itself from nominated competing content.
The documentary “The Year the Earth Changed” has just won an award at the Television Academy Award, an event that recognizes films, documentaries and series that have been shown on television or are available on streaming services.
The objective of the documentary “The year when the Earth changed” was to show that daily human activity (our movements, our industrial activity, our entertainment…) could be harmful for our planet. Through this production, Apple proves that when humans are no longer there, pollution decreases, we hear birdsong again in noisy big cities, animals behave differently, we see landscapes that were not not visible because of the pollution…
The Television Academy Award jury was hit by this documentary whose message is particularly strong and allows viewers to question their perception of environmental protection.
Frank Scherma, President and CEO of the Television Academy Award said:
Today more than ever, television informs and encourages audiences around the world. These seven remarkable programs have enlightened viewers and championed some of the most important issues facing the world’s population.
