The premiere of a new documentary Wild Edens: Russia the first in a new series that highlights the issue of climate change, took place in Sochi, Russia. Focusing on the flora and fauna in the one-of-a-kind natural habitats of Russia, the programme highlights the unique and delicate habitat of the Altai Mountains, the Kamchatka Peninsula, and the Arctic. Brought to you by Rosatom, it will be broadcast by National Geographic starting this summer.

Acclaimed Australian environmentalist Ben Heard, Founder and Executive Director of the non-governmental organization Bright New World, kicked off the event and talked about the perils of global warming. However, he emphasized that there is both hope and room for positive change: "Thanks to rising concentrations of greenhouse gases, nothing remains untouched by our civilization. Our rapidly changing climate is no longer any kind of hypothetical. But we can decide to make a planet that is better and brighter than we have ever let ourselves dream."

Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, the world's leading producer of safe and clean energy, is deeply concerned with the threats associated with global climate change. Alexey Likhachev, Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation Director General, said: "This is why we are supporting the creation of the Wild Edens project. We want to draw the public's attention to the global warming crisis and showcase the detrimental impact that mounting CO2 emissions generated by carbon energy sources are having on our planet."

Ellen Windemuth, Executive producer, Off The Fence productions, said: "Russia is such a vast and elusive land that we relished the opportunity as film makers to capture the unique footage of this incredible region. This documentary helps viewers to discover Russian's rich natural wealth and catalogue it before this fragile paradise is negatively and possibly irrevocably impacted by climate change.

Filmed over 12 months, the 1 x 60 documentary, an Off The Fence production, will air across multiple markets in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. Acquired by Jules Oldroyd, Ellen Windemuth and Allison Bean are Exec Producers for Off The Fence productions. Andrew Zikking is both producer and director of the documentary.

The film was presented at the 10th Anniversary International Forum ATOMEXPO 2018. During the event, RUSATOM Healthcare, a division of ROSATOM (Russia) and Beta Gamma Malaysia (BGM) also signed a Project Development Agreement on construction of network of irradiation centres in Malaysia.
