Former UGA Geology Student turned Documentary Filmmaker has new episode to premiere on Nature.


Brad Allgood graduated from UGA with degrees in Biology and Geology and is now a "documentary FILMMAKER focused on storytelling for impact".

Allgood has just completed editing on a natural history documentary that is related to geology, that will air April 19th on PBS - Nature. As Allgood explains "The show looks at the geology and natural history of species along the Niagara Escarpment and some of the Great Lakes region. It is a very general overview, so we never drilled down into specifics of the geology but I think you all will find it interesting!"


PBS - Nature S41 Ep11, Niagara Falls

Premiere: 4/19/2023


About the Episode: "Witness the story of an extraordinary ecosystem – larger than the state of Texas, and more precious than oil. The heartbeat of this remarkable water world is Niagara Falls. Through the eyes of passionate scientists and naturalists, uncover a complex world forged by stone and powered by water. In this realm, tiny shrews hunt in freezing cold rivers, spectacular shorebird migration unfolds over thundering falls, snowy owls stalk their prey from ice flows, and prehistoric snapping turtles brave a perilous overland journey. All these creatures and many more are part of a remarkable narrative unfolding in one of the most unique ecosystems in North America – Niagara."
