Nat Geo ropes in Alec Baldwin for 'Great Migrations'
US broadcaster National Geographic Channel (NGC) has announced that actor Alec Baldwin will narrate Great Migrations.

The global programming event will take viewers around the world on the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure the survival of their species.

Great Migrations is a worldwide initiative that the broadcaster says is unprecedented in the National Geographic Society's storied 120-year history. At the core of Great Migrations is a seven-hour high-definition miniseries event three years in the making — produced by National Geographic Television — to premiere globally on the National Geographic Channels in fall 2010.

The world premiere specials will include four core hours chronicling epic stories of animal migration across the globe, narrated by Baldwin.

Great Migrations looks to give the word 'move' a whole new meaning. Shot from land and air, in trees and cliff-blinds, on ice floes and underwater, Great Migrations tells the formidable, powerful stories of many of the planet's species and their movements, while revealing new scientific discoveries with breathtaking high-definition clarity. The beauty of these stories is underscored by new knowledge of these species' fragile existence and their life-and-death quest for survival in an ever-changing world.

The National Geographic Great Migrations team spent two and a half years in the field, traveling 420,000 miles in 20 countries and all seven continents to bring this production to television.

National Geographic Channel executive producer Char Serwa says, "Great Migrations is more than stunning imagery; it presents incredible stories about survival, family and life, and I can't think of a better voice to take viewers along on these journeys than Alec Baldwin. His skill at conveying the drama, range of emotions and compelling information all in one will only add to the viewer experience."

Additional hours of Great Migrations will include a special that investigates the science behind animal migration (airing as part of NGC's signature series Explorer in the US); a behind-the-scenes special on the advanced technology required to capture the spectacular footage and rare behaviors documented during the filming, as well as the dramatic challenges faced by the crew; and an hour-long visual concert.

In addition to the seven hours of programming, Great Migrations content will be featured across the spectrum of National Geographic platforms, including magazine articles and maps, books, DVDs, mobile and iPhone apps, games, lectures, screenings, exhibits and tours, among others.
