Humboldt: Epic Explorer is a new docu-drama produced, in collaboration with SAAM, by Spiegel TV for Smithsonian Networks. The documentary features Andrea Wulf, author of The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World (2015), who follows in the famous naturalist’s footsteps, tracing his five-year journey across the South American continent—from the Orinoco River to the Andes Mountains—making revolutionary discoveries about the workings of the natural world, including his insights into human-induced climate change, evolution, and continental drift. Humboldt’s visit to Washington, DC in 1804 is also featured. Rated PG (51 minutes; 2020).
