The hour-long film Harmony premieres on NBC on Friday, showcasing the work and ideas of the heir to the British throne on issues like rainforest protection, sustainable farming and the importance of restoring balance between man and nature.

“A lot of the things that are very close to the prince’s heart, and have been at the centre of his work for a long time, are featured in the movie,” the film’s co-producer Stuart Sender told reporters on Tuesday.

Charles, 62, is well known in Britain as a speaker on environmental issues and as patron of more than 300 charities and organisations — many of them related to quality of life and environmental issues.

“Harmony” also showcases the people and ideas behind sustainable living projects around the world. It is billed as a “practical call to action” showing how individuals, communities and nations can help combat climate change and other issues.

Sender said the impetus for “Harmony” came from Charles himself. A book and a children’s version also are being released to accompany the film.
