The Mursi | TRACKS
The Mursi is an Ethiopian tribe living near the Omo River in an isolated and mountainous region near the South Sudanese border. The Mursi people share this area with other tribes, such as the Suri, Kwegu, and Bodi tribe among others.
We follow the Mursi tribe closely as they seek to settle an ongoing dispute with the neighbouring Bodi tribe which recently has launched attacks on the tribe's young cattle herders.
The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1975.
As an anthropological landmark of its time, the series tells the story of traditional communities endangered by the modern world’s progressions.
The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish Dervishes and the Meo of China.

Universe: Beyond the Millennium - Creation
Universe: Beyond the Millennium is a television series observing astronomical phenomena, research, and theories on the universe and its origins.
Narrated by John Hurt.
The documentary premiered in 1999 and presents an overview of the universe as humans understood it at that time, and how we think it will evolve in the next millennium. Using 3D computer generated graphics, the series features animated sequences that offer insight into the Big Bang theory and the anatomy of the sun.
Creation, for years scientists have speculated about the beginning of the universe. Some astronomers support the Big Bang theory while others purport the Steady State theory. Which one is correct? Telescopes that tune into natural heat radiation coming from space are helping scientists find answers to these and other questions.
One day our universe will cool and die, our only escape maybe to risk a flight into a different universe. Perhaps the greatest question facing the human race is to discover where we came from, and find out what is our ultimate fate. Every culture, every age, has asked that question and tried answering it.
