Nekton Films


We combine our critical journalism, access, investigative and field skills to bring a fresh-approach to history programming. From docu-dramas about bubonic plague in New York to a series about the lives of the most famous warrior women in history.

For Discovery Channels worldwide, Oliver presented investigations into the myths and mysteries surrounding Atlantis, The Ark of the Covenant, Nazca Lines, El Dorado as well as the history of the brutal French colonial penitentiary system at Devil’s Island, Himmler’s ‘Cultural Heritage Unit’ (Das Ahnenerbe) and the missing Amber Room.
