10:30 AM GMT on February 25, 2024

    Dead River - In 2015, Brazil experienced its worst ever environmental disaster when the Mariana dam burst and released more than 50 million cubic metres of water down the Doce River, claiming the lives of 19 people.

    The consequences of the disaster are still being felt today, with livelihoods lost and nearly 750,000 people seeking justice from the Anglo-Australian company that owned the dam. Wildlife broadcaster Liz Bonnin interviews those affected and follows their quest for justice. A preview is out now, with the first episode launching on Monday 26th February.
