Arlberg - The Hidden Paradise - The Secrets of Nature

  • Arlberg - The Hidden Paradise - The Secrets of Nature

    50:09

    Snow masses pile up in abundance on the deep snow-covered slopes. The wind has created bizarre snowdrifts on the steep mountain ridges, and further below, the Swiss pine carry the weight of this sparkling splendor. Arlberg is the embodiment of an idyllic winter and the cradle of alpine skiing. However, this famous ski resort that connects Tyrol with Vorarlberg, offers a lot more than expected. A bit of untouched nature has been preserved in the hardly accessible valleys and the cliffy massifs.

  • The Iron Forest - The Secrets of Nature

    49:09

    The youngest of Austria’s national parks is also the country’s biggest continuous forest area. Ten million trees make the labyrinthine, fissured karst formations of the Reichraming and Sensen mountain ranges an endless green wilderness. But these mountain forests that were originally almost impenetrable lie in the midst of Austria’s iron industry. For more than a thousand years, it supplied the fuel for smelting iron from innumerable little mines in the region, especially from the Styrian Erzberg.

  • Secrets of the Flooded Forest - Danube National Park - The Secrets of Nature

    52:46

    After beginning in Vienna, the Danube riverbank forests extend to the gates of Bratislava, linking the two capitals like a green ribbon, forming a unique wildlife habitat in the heart of Europe. A few years ago a 36 kilometer section was turned into a national park that now protects the last undeveloped stretch of the Danube river and also the last riparian zone of its size in Central Europe.

  • Sky Hunters, The World of the Dragonfly - The Secrets of Nature

    49:49

    They hover over ponds and pools and inhabit the banks of rivers and streams. With their dazzling metallic colours and unique ways of flying they are truly jewels of the air. This film presents dragonflies as they have never been seen before. Fascinating close up shots take us into the world of these insects, which have lived on earth since the age of the dinosaurs. Spectacular super slow motion shots and elaborate computer animation uncover, for the first time, how dragonflies capture their prey at lightning speed while flying and how they mate in the air. Underwater photography reveals the development of the predatory dragonfly larvae while time lapse sequences show the emergence of the fully grown insect. However these amazingly colourful flying acrobats are in danger. The dragonfly's preferred habitat in and around water is rapidly diminishing, which, in Europe alone, has pushed around 80 species to the brink of extinction.

  • Keepers of the Ark - A Life for Animals - The Secrets of Nature

    50:02

    A baby bat sleeps peacefully, hanging from the washing line in the living room. A muscular young cheetah quits his enclosure - or he will kill the female who has come to mate with him. Excited young falcons fly away – from the roof of a Vienna retirement home. All these animals share their proximity to humans in the world’s oldest zoo, Vienna’s Schoenbrunn Zoo. The keepers devote their lives to them, witnessing their birth, staying with them to their death – sometimes the death of an entire species. Hard work and play, joy and sorrow are all part of life for the zookeepers of Schoenbrunn.

    Namaqualand - the setting for an annual wildlife fairytale. Every year in the narrow window between the cold wet winter and scorchingly-hot, dry summer, flowers of all description bloom in carpets of colours unimaginable, insects of equal diversity pollinate and predate, and everything form meerkats to ostriches breed. This film chronicles the magical transformation of a landscape - from the fantasy of fields of flowers to the harsh realities of a desert, and back again and uses a gang of meerkats and a group of ostriches as main characters who develop during the seasonal changes.

  • The Carnic Alps - Nature’s Treasure Trove - The Secrets of Nature

    50:02

    Austria's southern region boasts a mountain range that seems to consist of nothing but borders: the Carnic Alps.This is where cultures, languages and lifestyles meet, where Mother Nature provides a glimpse of the history of our planet Earth and where a soft breeze from the sea hits the cold Alpine wall. It is a place of close encounter of three languages: Slovenian, German and Italian. Apart from the geographical border position, it is the steep mountain cliffs, the narrow valleys and the diversity of these borders that have shaped people’s mentality. At a distance of approximately 60 miles from the sea, the impact on the weather is obvious. When the clouds come pushing to the North from the Adriatic Sea, they eventually hit the main ridge of the Carnic Alps, which forces them to stop for a rest and shed rain. Finally, the geological history of Mother Earth has formed its own boundaries here between the earth’s ages.

  • The Roaring Mountains - The Secrets of Nature

    49:33

    Nowhere in the Alpine mountains are water, forest and rocks as precipitous, rock faces as vertical as in the Gesäuse National Park, Europe’s largest canyon. “Gesäuse” is a name derived from the rushing noise of the water, the soughing wind that echoes up to the peaks of the north faces of this unique region – home to the myth of the mountain. When the sun rises and ushers in a magnificent day, the Gesäuse projects a perfect image of a mountain. However, in bad weather, the Gesäuse’s walls reflect a scary phenomenon as the speed of the inflowing airmass multiplies. Adverse weather conditions can thus convert the Gesäuse into inferno. Michael Schlamberger, Austria’s most renowned nature filmmaker internationally, listened to the rushing whitewater of the river Enns and conquered the sheer rock walls, chasing eagles and chamois in passing.

    It was only two hundred years ago that Tasmania was a British colony known as Van Diemens Land -- and so remote that its only use was as a penal settlement for the most hardened criminals. Times have definitely changed, yet that remote untamed island of history is never far away.

    Today Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, is a bustling modern city and busy port. Mount Wellington rises straight out of the city to more than 1200 metres. It's possible-- in just a little over half an hour - to drive from a city centre restaurant to a wilderness where you could freeze to death. Even in summer snow can fall here. To the people of Hobart, this place is simply The Mountain - a finger of a vast and trackless wilderness pointing right at the heart of the city -- so it's not surprising that Tasmania's wild heritage plays a central role in the lives of the island's human inhabitants.

  • Sudan The Nubian Caravans - The Secrets of Nature

    50:01

    Sudan, the biggest country in Africa. In the south the Nile with its feeder rivers dominates an almost impenetrable swamp landscape. Towards the north begins the Savanna, which blends into the Egyptian desert farther on. Since time immemorial camels have marked the dry areas of the land and determined the lifestyle of the various nomadic tribes.

  • The Isle - The Secrets of Nature

    50:24

    Vienna's Danube Island, a river island artificially created some 20 years ago, has become a recreational retreat for tens of thousands of city dwellers. To tourists, it is an attraction praised in every traveller's guide. Sun worshipers, cyclists, skaters and night owls invade the island from the first days of spring until the fading of the autumn sun. No-one associates the island with wildlife and wilderness, and yet, unnoticed by most visitors, a secret army of wild animals has invaded the banks, forest and bushland right in the middle of a big river and a large city. Stone martens, beavers, rabbits, deer, herons, cormorants and black kites, various fishes, toads, frogs and insects have conquered the island and turned it into their own hunting and breeding grounds.

  • Appalachia - The Endless Forest - The Secrets of Nature

    52:11

    This film explores the hidden worlds of these remote valleys, and uncovers a wealth of nature, from bears and salamanders to vultures and flying squirrels. But human culture here is as rich as the natural history.

  • Return of the Bald Ibis - The Secrets of Nature

    50:56

    Four years ago a group of zoologists ventured out to indulge into a truly crazy adventure. Their ambition: to show a flock of bald ibises, birds that have been pushed over the brink by hunting and habitat destruction and only survived in zoos, how to fly to their winter quarters on their original seasonal migration routes.

  • On Thin Ice - The Secrets of Nature

    53:17

    With predictions of polar bears being extinct in 50 years, On Thin Ice follows bears as they emerge from their dens and navigate their rapidly changing environment. On Thin Ice shows how the frozen expanses of the Arctic are shrinking at an unprecedented rate, with the very survival of the polar bear literally on thin ice.

    Over the last year, producer/presenter Greg Grainger has mounted a series of expeditions across the Arctic to document the plight of the polar bear.

    * Researcher Nick Lunn tranquillises polar bears from his helicopter, cataloguing the diminishing health of the Western Hudson Bay bear population and finding the remains of a bear thought to have died from starvation.

    * Close and wild encounters with rangers from the Polar Bear Alert team as they chase bears out of the township of Churchill, built in the middle of the bears’ migration route. Follow one family of bears that have to be darted after they attempt to break into a building food for food, while another bold bear becomes trapped inside a garbage truck.

    * Hungry bears and husky dogs fighting one another at an isolated weather station north of Norway.

    * Polar bears in the wild as they capture seals and devour whale carcasses.

    There is no more iconic symbol of strength and adaptation to survival than the polar bear.... an animal so superbly suited to its environment that it thrives in the most hostile corners of the planet – until now.

    On Thin Ice - A moving account of Polar bears struggling to survive as climate change melts their summer hunting ground - the Arctic sea ice.

  • Extreme Light and Dark - The Secrets of Nature

    50:26

    Humans prefer moderation - neither too hot nor too cold, neither too light nor too dark. But Earth doesn't cater to our preferences. Our planet offers an abundance of extreme conditions, and people everywhere have had to learn to adapt to their surroundings. «EXTREME! - Light and Dark» is a journey to the brightest and darkest inhabited areas of the world: places where a cloud hardly ever crosses the sky or months pass without a single ray of sunlight reaching the ground. How does so much light, or so little, affect the mindset and emotional well-being of the people who live with it? How do they protect themselves? And how do they take advantage of their situation? Yuma in Arizona just recently lost the title «world's brightest town» to Agadem, a tiny oasis in the Sahara Desert. Meanwhile, the Italian village of Viganella has winter sunshine even in the depths of its alpine ravine - ever since the mayor attached parabolic reflectors to the mountaintops.

  • Schladming Magic Mountains - Land of Champions - The Secrets of Nature

    50:08

    Schladming in Austria is not the best known of the country's ski regions but it's one of the finest - because it keeps a low profile and makes sure the season doesn't dominate the landscape. That also means its nature is better protected than in normal mixed regions.

    Camera-ace France Hafner captures the stunning variety of a region caught between two mountain ranges made of very different rock - one porous limestone, the other rock-hard granite. The limestone Dachstein plateau, dry and mottled like the surface of a brain, lets rainwater and melting glaciers seep through, carving startling caves and descending into glossy forests whose dry brooks become raging torrents in the space of a morning. Capercaillie strut in the woods just out of cyclists' sight and male black grouse fight for females in cleared end-of-season spaces next to the ski-lifts. In their case their frantic energy is only visible when slowed down 30 times!

    Red deer, fed in pens in winter, roam the hillsides in summer, filling the valleys with their urgent groans during the heady days of the rut. Lone wolves tread the winter snows. Schladming is not yet a stopping place for them - it's a crossroads on their way north or south, east or west to other countries where they're no longer hunted.

    Marmots are the Meercats of the Alps, charming visitors to the pastures, nibbling weel-peeled carrots as they pose for photos.

    But the kings of this world are the chamois, perfectly adapted to their hazardous habitat, even lowering their heart-rate in winter to conserve energy. Fighting, courting, playing, running or resting they treat their sheer surroundings with sovereign indifference.

    What is the difference between the domestic dog and the wolf if both of them have been raised under the same conditions? What skills got lost and which were gained in the process of domestication? How far are wolves prepared to co-operate with humans, and do they accept domestic dogs as co-operation partners? To get answers to these questions, researchers Friederike Range, Zsofia Viranyi and Professor Kurt Kotrschal have taken up the task -- for the first time ever in canid research -- to raise a pack of wolves by hand.

  • Mountains in the Sun - The Secrets of Nature

    49:09

    The landscape of southern Lower Austria is characterised by the last undulations of the Alps. This film takes a cinematic journey through these so-called “sunny mountains”, showing their diverse nature and cultures in a comprehensive portrait of the region and its inhabitants.

  • The Flight of the Bald Ibis - The Secrets of Nature

    50:45

    Teaching migrating birds to migrate may sound like teaching your grandmother to suck eggs. But behind this curious-looking project is the story of a species persecuted to the point of total extinction in Europe. Since the 16th century, the bald ibis has been a mere historical footnote in every book on European bird life. Once a familiar sight in southern Central Europe and Turkey, the only wild populations, each of them dwindling, have survived in Morocco and Arabia. Yet this is a story of hope.

  • The Four Alps - The Secrets of Nature

    52:37

    For as long as there has been human memory we have been fascinated by mountains.They have been forced up by the mighty inner forces of the planet. And they are worn down by the forces of wind and flowing water and ice, and by perhaps the greatest force of all -- time.They have been places both of spiritual retreat and high peaks to be conquered. Places where humans have stretched their powers of endurance to the very limits or have searched for peace and tranquillity.

  • Lake Wörthersee - Where Man and Nature Meet - The Secrets of Nature

    48:46

    Lake Woerthersee in the Austrian state of Carinthia is not only one of the most beautiful lakes in Austria, but also, in the truest sense of the phrase an “internationally famous stretch of water”. For over 100 years the lake has been the “stage” for world famous composers, architects and Hollywood stars. Austria’s first airline came into being on Lake Woerthersee, and the lake’s shipping is legendary.
    But away from the hustle and bustle, the scenically charming lake with its islands and peninsulas is an uncharted natural jewel that has been declared a „natura 2000“ area.

  • Mystery of the Fairy Circles - The Secrets of Nature

    49:55

    When it rains in the Namib, a thick carpet of grass covers the sand and stony desert. But this green layer is punctuated by bare circular patches, as regular as if drawn by a compass. And there are not just one or two of them, but hundreds of thousands. Observed from the air, they could be innumerable golf bunkers - or an abstract painting: «Red dots on green background». They appear between 60 to 120 kilometres from the coast and stretch from South Africa to Angola. They are bordered by a ring of tall, thick grass, which stands out from the surrounding sparse vegetation. But where did these mysterious «fairy circles» come from? Are they caused by mineral
    compounds in the ground? Did poisonous plants or poison gas contaminate the subsoil? Are they the work of insects? Or is it the impact of meteorites that is responsible? And what crucial role do they play in the ecosystem? Three scientific teams have conflicting theories, but finally the amazing secret of the fairy circles is revealed!

  • Kamp - A River for All Senses - The Secrets of Nature

    49:13

    Far from being a long, let alone a wide river, the waters of the Kamp river feed one of the most fascinating valley landscapes of Lower Austria. From its source to its estuary, which empties into the Danube, the river descends about 745 metres in altitude. A river course like the Kamp’s is a life corridor whose banks line increasingly rare wetlands, marshes, meadows, gallery forests, embankments, jungle-type shrubs and alluvial forests. While small sections of the river course were made a nature preserve, one whole section of the river was designated to become a “cultural park“. The region is shaped by its long-standing cultural tradition, the perfect soil for wine-growing, and an ever more strongly positioned gentle tourism industry.

  • Wild and the West - The Secrets of Nature

    52:34

    For the past one-hundred years westerns have awoken a longing for real adventure and for the big undiscovered country-- and they've been so successful that most people it's easy to picture the Wild West: Dust blowing through the prominent rock formations of Monument Valley. Endless deserts which test the endurance of righteous men and provide a perfect hiding place for outlaws. Rapid rivers, on the other side of which, a new and better life awaits.

  • Magic of the Mountains - The Secrets of Nature

    50:17

    This is the story of a land, where forces of nature are at play – beyond all things that a human can ever dominate or be able to conquer. The birth of Tyrol was one of collisions, where previous far apart continents were conjoined, wedged together and piled up on top of each other. The result is a steep world of diversity on the smallest area: depending on the depth of a valley or the height of a mountain ridge, depending on its direction and position at the edge or in the middle of the Alps, depending on whether its slope is steep or flat, there is a spot in Tyrol that is icy or mild, lush or paltry, dry or full of water. This film presents the fascinating world of the high mountains with all their diverse flora and fauna and the living conditions throughout the seasons.

  • Year of the Hedgehog - The Secrets of Nature

    49:25

    It’s springtime, the air is tepid, the skylarks chirp, and spring flowers cover the meadows and the forest grounds. Out of a pile of leaves a fluttery, sniffling snout tip appears: it’s a hedgehog awakening from its winter sleep heading into the light of a new year, having only two things in mind: food and finding a partner.This documentary accompanies for a year one of the most popular yet still unknown animals of our landscape. The hedgehog is not only part of the oldest mammal species on our planet, newest findings disclose that it will stay among us for many years to come. Neither the massive destruction of natural habitats nor the horrendous road kill can seriously endanger its population.

    The film retraces the water's journey - from the glacier down into the valley, through the mountains to its source, illustrating the beauty of natural, smaller lakes in Austria with their fascinating world of flora and fauna and tells the story of enchanted cliffs, a spectacular underwater world, dragons, ancient species of fish, as well as of speleologists and modern science.

  • Ol Man River - Mighty Mississippi Part2 - The Secrets of Nature

    50:10

    Perhaps the best known river on the planet, made famous by writers like Mark Twain, by the romance of the steamboat age and by the blues music spawned along its banks, Ol' Man River still hides many secrets.In two one hour programmes, this series journeys along the river from its mouth in the salt marshes of the Gulf Coast to its source deep in the northern forests near the Canadian border, searching out the creatures that call this river home. As magnificent as the wildlife and landscapes are now, they were even more amazing when the first Europeans and Americans came across this mighty river. This series recreates some of these first encounters, with dramatic re-enactments.

  • Land of Crystal Waters - The Secrets of Nature

    52:14

    In the very heart of Europe, precisely in the centre of Austria, lies one of the most marvellous beauty spots of the Alps – a woodland, water and mountain wilderness that shuns no comparison with, say, wild Canada. Yet its rivers and lakes, ice-clad peaks, deep gorges and giant caves are just a stone’s throw away from picturesque cultural centres where Austria’s monarchs spent their summers.

  • Weinviertel - Land of a Thousand Vineyards - The Secrets of Nature

    49:47

    Italy, California and South Africa are not the only places famous for their wines. Right in the heart of Europe, Austria can also look back over a past suffused with music and wine, both of which remain inseparably linked to this day. It is the vastness of Austria’s “Weinviertel” or wine growing region that captivates visitors. No other region of Austria suggests this feeling of endless landscape quite so vividly. A soft, hilly landscape, blessed with a warm climate, that is cultivated by humans but has maintained much of its original character – a quiet landscape with a considerable history and hidden treasures. And the Weinviertel hasn’t been given its name for nothing – wine growing defines the land in all its forms and has always been the distinguishing feature for the inhabitants of this unique region.

  • The Tiger and the Monk - The Secrets of Nature

    50:24

    Wat Pa Luangta Bua is a monastery of meditation, situated far away from any civilization, about 200 kilometers west of Bangkok, and here, silence, peace and harmony reign. Every afternoon, a daily ritual is observed -- nonchalant Buddhist monks take their ten 3-5 year old tigers out on a leash for a walk through the bordering region of Burma. They dote upon their tigers, feed them and celebrate them as their most sacred animal. The monks treat grown-up animals with reverence and respect although they cuddle and play with the cubs.
    The tigers were once the aristocrats of the jungle of South East Asia but today, this undisputed ruler of the animal kingdom is one of the most endangered species in the world. Three of the eight subspecies are already extinct, a fate that could also overcome the others. Only an estimated 500 to 2000 tigers of Indochina still inhabit the intact jungle regions of South China, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia and Vietnam. This documentary portrays the harmonious relationship between predators and humans without disregarding the monk's maxim that a tiger will always be a tiger, even if it feeds from the hand. It will always be a wild animal.

  • Wildest Africa - The Secrets of Nature

    52:03

    This gripping documentary, from producer Greg Grainger, features all of the many diverse creatures that roam much of Africa, from the big cats, elephants and giraffes, through to highly endangered species such as the black rhinoceros and wild dog. The programme shows how their daily ritual is aimed at just one result....survival, but how the very survival of entire species is increasingly in danger.

  • Alpine Meltdown - The Secrets of Nature

    49:40

    The climate is changing, global temperature is rising. The impacts are already apparent, especially in the mountains but also in the lowlands. The permafrost zone is shifting higher up and the masses of snow melt whooshing from the glaciers to the valleys are already increasing incessantly. Rivers are going to rise up to powerful floods and dwindle down to extremely low waters the next second. Alpine Meltdown takes us to a future world, presenting changes that have already occurred and pursuing the question how the alpine landscapes are going to look like at the end of the 21st century.

  • River Without Frontiers - The Secrets of Nature

    52:00

    The Morava river with its forests is one of the most beautiful and ecologically valuable riverscapes featuring the richest biodiversity in all of Central Europe. Like a green ribbon, the riverine forests of the Morava – together with those of the Danube and the Dyje – link the Alps with the Carpathians, forming a bridge between Eastern and Central Europe. The influence of the Pannonian climate with its hot and dry summers combines with the slowly receding high waters to form a mosaic of extremely different habitats: moist meadows lie close to sand dunes, riverine forests alternate with dry primeval oak forests. This enormous diversity of habitats creates a refuge for animal and plant species, a specific composition that cannot be found in any other place.

  • The Valley at the Border - The Secrets of Nature

    48:52

    The Thaya River flows quietly through the deep incision of the valley that – in winter - frequently sees only a few minutes of the warming rays from the low-lying sun. It rarely snows here, but the sharp cold and the dampness rising from the river transform the valley at the border into a bizarre landscape coated with hoar-frost.The border between Austria and the Czech Republic runs along the middle of the river. Up to the fall of the Iron Curtain, the isolation of the youngest Austrian national park allowed a great diversity of quite rare animal and plant species to survive.

  • Fabulous Foals - The Secrets of Nature

    48:34

    A dragon hatched from the volcanic furnaces of Gondwanaland. Ancient almost beyond comprehension, yet a living thing. And vast, stretching across a subcontinent, its spine arching above the clouds...

    No lucky dragon, this. Starvation festers beneath the shimmering green of its skin. But to the creatures that live along its flanks, it can be a bountiful provider as well as a remorseless destroyer. Today we call it the Drakensberg, or «Dragon Mountain». «Drakensberg» is a dynamic documentary journey through the life of this ever-astonishing mountain. It is also a story of animal survival in a landscape of overwhelming, pitiless power.

  • Cuba Wild Island of the Caribbean - The Secrets of Nature

    53:38

    Cuba is a tropical paradise. It is the largest and yet least known island in the Caribbean. In recent years it has become famous for its old American cars, Fidel Castro's brand of communism, cigars and rum. Millions of tourists visit each year to enjoy the tropical climate and the wonderful beaches and warm seas.But there is another Cuba, the little known wildlife of this Caribbean island. Over half the plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth. Over 80% of the reptiles and amphibians are uniquely Cuban. They include the smallest four-legged animal on earth and the world's most aggressive crocodile. This programme looks at these little known creatures and investigates how they arrived on Cuba and when?The Story starts in the Caribbean Sea. Cuba has many unspoilt reefs that team with colourful fish. This is due in part to the recent communist regime, for there has been strict control over boats and very limited fishing.. So the reefs have remained pristine, a glimpse of how the rest of the Caribbean looked before development degraded so much.

  • Tough at the Top - The Secrets of Nature

    48:28

    The rising tide of our civilisation has not yet flooded the last peaks of the Alps. The Hohe Tauern mountain range is a high Alpine wilderness harbouring natural treasures that many people hardly know about, even from hearsay. Their intact habitats make them a Noah's ark of Alpine flora and fauna. At the same time, this is a world of mountains in the superlative, with the highest peaks in Austria, the biggest glacial surfaces in the eastern Alps and water falls that are among the highest in the world.The documentary shows a series of barely known, extremely shy or rare animals of the high mountains of Upper Austria for the first time. It took two years to complete the complicated shooting during which the camera team had to cope with the harsh conditions in exactly the same way the animals of these high altitudes do, to capture an intimate look into the secretive life of these shyest of mountain creatures.

  • Sun Seeking Creatures, a Mediterranean World - The Secrets of Nature

    50:31

    Subscribe to watch full natural history documentaries!

    The Danube, one of the most remarkable rivers in Europe, contains many secrets. Not just underwater, but also along its course through Austria. In one small section of river in Lower Austria, the body of water has an influence on the surrounding landscape, which has even formed its own microclimate. One speaks of so-called heat islands, with temperatures that reach nearly Mediterranean levels. Human beings have created a cultural landscape oriented to viticulture over a period of millennia. This is because the warm loess and clay soil promotes the flourishing of grapevines. However, not only crop plants grow between the cities of Spitz and Krems: since primeval times, flora and fauna have settled here that have no rival in Europe. They are all species that live on the slopes of the Danube mainly due to the mild temperatures, and which are often found nowhere else. Centuries of isolation have in some cases even resulted in purely local forms. For example, the Clouded Apollo or the Southern Festoon.
