A Kingdom For The Dzanga Gorillas
Report a problem
Deep in the heart of darkness in the lush rain forest of the Congo, is a woman with a very big heart. Italian scientist Chloe Cipoletta has dedicated her life to protecting and studying a remarkable family of lowland gorillas. Until now, these wonderful animals have lived a quiet, secret life away from people. But with human development on the horizon, the race is now on to ensure that Congos gorillas have a permanent home in the future. Chloes solution is radical, yet simple: she wants to habituate a family of gorillas to human contact. If she succeeds then a whole new tourist industry will be born, as well as a good financial reason to protect the forest home of one of humankinds closest relations.

An account of a safari through Africa by wildlife photographer Ron Shanin.
Worldwide there are more than 115.000 known species of algae 200 of them are extremely toxic! During algal bloom large sea areas of many square kilometres are contaminated by their neurotoxic substances. The consequence: millions of fish die and are flushed on to the beaches. The toxins are also absorbed by mussels and this way can enter the food chain of human beings. After eating contaminated mussels food poisoning, permanent loss of memory or death by apnoea can occur, depending on the kind and amount of neurotoxic substance. In 1995 eight guests of a restaurant in Amsterdam were hospitalized after eating mussels all had eaten from mussels that had come from a small breeding farm in Killary Fjord, in the west of Ireland. Even so the mussels have been intensely examined in a lab, it took more than ten years until scientists could detect the reason for the food poisoning. They discovered a new toxic species of algae. During a shipping expedition German and Irish researchers will investigate how the new pol
Lionsrock - Return of the King
In February 2008 a unique wildlife reserve of 1,250 hectares was established around Lionsrock, SouthAfrica, with the aim of returning lions and other big cats to the land of their ancestors. Most are fromEurope, from rundown zoos or circuses, removed to dubious holding pens like the dilapidated Panterabig cats asylum in the Netherlands. From here a rescued lion family are sedated and air-freightedto a perfect savanna landscape, where for the first time they can be released, free, into their naturalenvironment. This heartwarming and joyful portrait of Lionsrock with its dedicated team also featuresostriches, weaver birds, ground squirrels and other African wildlife sharing the natural habitat wherethe lions ancestors once thrived. And for the first time on TV this film shows root canal treatmenton Kongo, a majestic lion male!
Hyena - Queens of the Masai Mara
Its not the lion or the cheetah, but the hyena that is the real monarch of the Masai Mara - the winner in the competition for prey and territory and the fight for survival. Michigan State University biologist Kay Holekamp and her team have studied the behaviour of hyena clans and show that their matriarchal society is highly organized using sophisticated vocalizations for communication. Hyenas are effective solo hunters but deadly in a coordinated attack.
When a female barnowls home an old disused barn is de-molished, she has to seek a new place to live. On the way, flying through forests and across grasslands, she encounters most of the common owl species in Central Europe: long and short eared owls, little, tawny and eagle owls, some she can live peace- fully beside, others she must shun or risk becoming their prey. During her journey, the film shows how owls fly so silently and hunt so efficiently. It illustrates what they have meant to humans since ancient times, and how they live beside us today. It explains why they have become unfairly associated with death. Our owl finally finds a new home, as the guest of a barn owl family, in time to see the new clutch of young following their mother on their first majestic flight.
Operation Deep Sea: Shedding Light in the Darkness
Deep sea: 1000m below the surface no light, immense pressure and icy temperatures. The deep sea encompasses more than 90% of the planets habitat. Yet we know less about these depths than about the moon. This film documents the technical, scientific, and ecological challenges of deep sea researchers. Scientists work worldwide together to collect data on the physical state of the upper ocean. With more than 3000 autonomous floats they monitor the oceans for influences on weather systems like El Nino or the monsoon. Does it affect global climate change? Does the deep sea offer solutions for the CO2 issue? Researchers in the Okinawa Trough are trying to find out. The sea floor harbors enormous amounts of resources: oil, natural gas, methane. Scientists work hard to try and locate these materials. Millions of deep sea dwellers are waiting for their discovery. The Census of Marine Life is trying to catalogue these bizarre ocean creatures before they disappear. The expenditures comeing with these projects are enorm
The seas of the Asia Pacific stand as one of the last major centres of marine biodiversity in the world. But the vast carbon footprint left in the ocean has led global fisheries experts to demand drastic action. If that doesnt happen, they warn, all that that will be left in our oceans will be jellyfish. Meanwhile, a war is being waged. Illegal fishing has robbed Indonesia of an estimated $3.2bn in losses from poaching. Corrupt military forces do little to combat the trawlers, taking bribes and selling fake licenses to foreign poachers. Indonesia's coral reefs help to support one of the largest marine fisheries in the world, generating 3.6bn tons of fish each year. At stake here is not just the livelihood of a region, but also the future of one of the worlds greatest marine areas. We follow marine biologists from the WWF fighting to not just to protect, but to rebuild the oceans. This is a war for fish, for nature, and for the planet.
Sea Of Death
Sea of Death is the ultimate documentary film about a catastrophe many times greater than Titanic: the sinking of three German refugee ships at the end of World War II when 20 000 people lost their lives. It combines unique under water footage from the divers who discovered the Steuben in 2005, interviews with survivors who have kept their trauma a secret for sixty years and access to secret sources in Russia that case new light on the tragic event. Towards the end of the Second World War millions of German civilians fled from the onslaught of the Soviet Army. Women, children, hospitalized soldiers together they crammed the Polish ports, their last chance of being evacuated. The situation was chaotic, the ships were loaded way over capacity. Off the coast, Soviet submarines were lying in wait, ready to attack any ship that ventured out into the Baltic Sea. The under water footage of the three wrecks Wilhelm Gustloff, Steuben and Goya is starkingly graphic: personal belongings left in panic sixty years ago
Hunting Buddies - How Dogs Discovered Man
No animal reflects human social changes as much as the dog. For millennia, Dogs have served as mankinds hunting buddies, vital companions in our struggle for survival. In todays increasingly civilized world, modern dogs have had to Abandon their first instincts, finding new employment as family members, helping the disabled, diagnosing cancer, or sniffing for drugs. We have forgotten what it actually means to be a dog, a hunter.
Return Of The Buffalo - Restoring The Great American Prairie
The vast area of the American prairie tells the story of an experiment that has been going for 150 years: the settlement of the American Midwest. Countless ghost towns define the appearance of deserted swathes of land. The radical vision of a scientist couple from New York sparked a new debate about the economic recovery of the region. Their plan is to make the Great Plains a public property, a common area, and reverse it to its original condition. Project Buffalo Commons is the attempt to turn back the demographics and history of the American west to the time before the settlement. Fences should be torn down to allow hundreds of thousands of buffalos to roam freely across the vast plains. The intended goal is that an expected rise in tourism and a highly efficient buffalo meat production will provide people of this region with security and a new future.
Little Monsters - Hide & Cheat
This 3D documentary presents some of the animal kingdoms strangest survival strategies. The most startling behavior patterns arent found among the classic big animals like lions or polar bears, but among natures smaller creatures: poison dart frogs, chameleons, praying mantises and scorpions, to name but a few. These Little Monsters are masters of survival. Until recently, only a handful of scientists had the technical means to study them up close. But now, with its ingenious combination of slow-motion 3D and time-lapse 3D sequences, Little Monsters sets new standards in the third dimension , yielding unbelievable scenes the world has never seen and felt before.

Golfing With Animals
Golfing with Animals is a film about a paradox! The paradox is, that there actually are wild animals and plants in manmade environments, close to humans. The habitat may seem tame but the law of the jungle is always in use amongst those animals that live there. The survival of the fittest is obvious for those creatures that live in an apparently safe and tame environment. Is a golf course a wildlife environment? We are turning the expression wildlife upside down. The purpose is to show an artificial environment as wildlife. Golfing with Animals show the habitants and guests (except humans) you can meet in a man made habitat and that it can be very rich of species. In the film we meet conflicts in a no-mans-land but also that humans and wild animals can coexist in peace. We have chosen to use a golf course as an example. An environment that is wilder than expected! Golfing with Animals is told from an entertaining and humoristic angle. Through the view of the animals looking at the game of golf and its partici

Plastic: The Real Sea Monster
Plastic floats. This is where our story begins. Millions of tons enter the ocean every year, pouring out from rivers and shores, ships and platforms. The worlds scientists have studied the phenomenon and come to alarming results. Plastic contains synthetic hormones that are released when plastic breaks down into tiny particles through wind, waves and exposure to the sun. Once in seawater, plastic absorbs toxic substances known as POPs, or persistent organic pollutants. This process allows toxins to accumulate in a density a million times higher than normal. What happens when fish and seabirds mistake the plastic for food? Scientists have found evidence that these toxins are entering the food chain, and ultimately winding up in our bodies. Worse still, plastic doesnt biodegrade. Instead, it becomes trapped in massive maelstroms of garbage. Scientists have identified five of these so-called gyres. A few of them are larger than Spain and Portugal combined. The worlds biggest dumps are at sea. This is what we kno
