    Smithsonian Channel with David Royle – It’s Brighter Here
    At a time when most television channels have gone the reality route, the Smithsonian Channel has emerged as the source of some of the most exciting factual programming.

From the largest aerial filming project in television history, to the world’s largest snake and the award-winning film about a young woman who swims with sharks, the presentation will combine amazing visual moments with the inside story of creating a new channel that combines entertainment with integrity and credibility.
