‘Wild El Salvador – In The Shadow Of The Volcano’: MagellanTV Debuts Nigel Marven Doc Ahead Of World Wildlife Day

Nigel Marven

EXCLUSIVE: Last year, doc streamer MagellanTV struck a deal with veteran conservationist and presenter Nigel Marven and the pair are today unveiling their first project. Wild El Salvador – In the Shadow of the Volcano has gone live on the service and you can watch a trailer here.

The global streamer’s doc follows former BBC and Shark Week presenter Marven as he travels to volcanic El Salvador and encounters the creatures that live in the shadows of the infernos.

The doc launches ahead of World Wildlife Day tomorrow (March 3) and will be free globally to all until March 16, at which point it goes behind the paywall.

“My year filming in El Salvador was brilliant,” said Marven. “The smallest nation in Central America has rich wildlife and culture. I’ll never forget visiting Puma country, finding a rare El Pital salamander, wrestling a Black Sea turtle and the fusillade of flaming balls of cloth in the Festival of Fire.”

Marven filmed and produced the doc. He is known for his no-fear approach to presenting shows such as the BBC’s Chased By Dinosaurs during a quarter-century on-screen career and also fronted Shark Week for Discovery between 2000 and 2003.

MagellanTV, billed by some news outlets as a ‘Netflix for documentaries,’ is an SVoD service that Greg Diefenbach and Thomas Lucas co-founded. It has been ramping up its original programming output in recent years.
