Further investigation opens Pandora’s box that starts with Joy-riders and small-time drug dealers and moves through corruption, murder and arson. A house of cards stands before her, and with few people in the Division to trust, Peters sets out on a journey that she hopes will expose the leader of an International Drugs Operation.

SYNOPSIS: SURVIVING THE MAZE is an Internet reality Game Show aimed at testing your fears and phobias in isolation, darkness and set in a place where contestants can compete to win £250,000. The catch is simple… Survive 24 hours against the Pharmotech walking dead. Pitched to some of the wealthiest and sickest people on the planet… This is nothing more than a highly covert snuff site. The six contestants who have gone through what appears to be a legitimate casting process know nothing of the possible consequences. What seems like a good idea and fun to begin with turns into a horrible nightmare as they find themselves on 24-hour surveillance. It’s game on! Who will survive, who will win the cash prize? As they die one by one, the game is on but not for money… But for survival.
SURVIVING THE MAZE is a sequel to THE KAMENKA EXPERIMENT and part of a trilogy concluding in BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW… DEAD!.

OUTLINE: One of Germany’s most famous artists and poets remains unknown to the rest of the world. His legacy as the Godfather of the modern cartoon and his outspoken nature makes him a compelling and original subject for a landmark English language documentary.
- Wilhelm Busch is one of Germany best known and most loved artists and poets
- His most famous work Max and Moritz (1837) (sold 430,000 copies over 56 editions by 2008)
- By 1997 Max and Moritz had been translated into 281 Languages and Dialects
There has never been an English Language documentary about this man and his phenomenal body of work. The objective is to create the first documentary on his life and works, and secondly to create a new animation of Max and Moritz (his most famous Bilderposse) using the original artwork.
