MIPTV: Anglo-Dutch producer and distributor Off The Fence (OTF) has hooked up with Africa HD and Wind Dancer Films to produce a new documentary series about Africa's diverse ecosystems.

High definition series Wildest Africa (13x60') is currently being distributed by OTF at MipTV. It looks at the natural wonders of the continent, such as the Zambezi river and the Sahara desert, and investigates how they are coming under increasing threat from man.

The first four episodes of the show are being co-funded by UKTV's Eden, Oasis HD, Arte and ZDF Enterprises. Executive producers are Ellen Windemuth and Allison Bean for OTF; Matt Williams, David McFadzean and Dete Meserve for Wind Dancer; James Makawa for Africa HD; Britta Troester for ZDF; and John Pannikar for Oasis HD.
