Makoto Kita conceived and directed diverse programming that included documentaries, live sports coverage, and music shows. He transferred to NHK’s main production affiliate, NHK Enterprises, where his output includes more than 10 editions of the popular wildlife show “Nature Wonder Land”. For “The Arid Namib”, he spent more than 150 days shooting in the Namib Desert. The program captures the grand scale of the landscape and gives a new perspective on the desert’s wildlife by focusing on termites.
