Vme TV Unearths Easter Island Planeta Feroz welcomes viewers to explore one of the most remote inhabited islands of the
world MIAMI, FL—September 18, 2014—Vme TV, the only national Spanish-‐language television network affiliated with public television stations, takes viewers on a historical adventure to Easter Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Southeastern Pacific Ocean that is widely known for its 887 monumental stone statues. “Isla de Pascua” airs on Vme TV’s Planeta Feroz block Monday, September 22, 2014 at 5 p.m. E/P. For the last ten years, a multidisciplinary scientific team has been studying and excavating this Polynesian island, a territory of Chile annexed in the late 1800’s. Easter Island is best recognized for its human figures carved from rock between the years 1250 and 1500, standing about 13 feet high and average 5 feet in width. This special offers an impressive historical account and analysis of a population that has been able to adapt through a climate crisis, slave raids and a shift toward a new social and religious order. “‘Isla de Pascua,’ re-‐examines historical documents and presents scientific learning of an environment that has evolved over the years. Through our Planeta Feroz programming, audiences can experience the excitement and adventure of remote destinations, such as Easter Island, and learn how these cultures developed into their modern day existence,” said Doris Vogelmann, Vme TV’s vice-‐president of programming. “Isla de Pascua” makes up part of the Planeta Feroz lineup, a special series of programs developed with content from educational networks such as PBS, BBC, and NatGeo. Planeta Feroz’s shows, which have been carefully curated for Vme TV audiences, introduce viewers to the wonders of Mother Nature, by showcasing the world’s most exceptional habitats and animals.
