  • 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.

    We always have to keep in mind that a Documentary, after all, can tell lies and it can tell lies because it lays claim to a form of veracity which fiction doesn't. Some of the documentaries are made just to discredit some particular person, party, organization, system etc, but most of them here on TDF are non biased, without prejudice and worth watching.

  • Using Math to Skate On Thin Ice

    2:34

    People get nervous when they see Märten Ajne ice skating. He intentionally skates on extremely thin ice. Ajne has pursued this dangerous hobby for 40 years and has skated on more than 1,800 bodies of water from Norway to North America. He uses his knowledge as a mathematician and a highly-trained ear to stay safe. Ajne can actually calculate how thick the ice is by listening to the sound it makes when he glides across it. Join us for one of the coolest math lessons ever taught.

  • Man and His Dog Alone in the Arctic - The Full Documentary

    5:52:43

    #manandhisdog #acrossbaffinisland #wintersurvival
    Man and His Dog Alone in the Arctic - extreme winter camping, trekking documentary. If you're looking for the adventure of a lifetime, the Baffin Island wilderness should be high on your list of places to explore. In this full documentary, you’ll see that conditions there can be harsh and strong wilderness travel and wilderness survival skills are mandatory in any season. It is deep, mountain wilderness as it lies high in Canada's Arctic.

    In 2018, my dog Buck and I undertook the challenge of crossing Baffin Island's Cumberland Peninsula via Akshayak Pass, a traditional Inuit travel route that is part of of the far-flung Auyuittuq National Park. Auyuittuq means The land that never melts in Inuktitut, the Inuit language. It's named for the massive and ever-present Penny Ice Cap which is the most southerly remnant of the Laurentide Ice Sheet that covered all of North America East of the Rockies 18,000 years ago. Indeed, a trip to Auyuittuq is like travelling back to the last Ice Age. But Akshayuk Pass would make up less than half of my route.

    Buck and I would start north of the Arctic Circle in the Inuit community of Qikitarjuaq, Nunavut, travelling over 80 kilometres along the eastern coast of Baffin Island before reaching the wind-ravaged pass. Then, we'd compleat the trip with a final 30km trek to reach the community of Pangnirtung, Nunavut.

    In late March and early April, when I was there, female Polar Bears are coming out of hibernation on land and walking out to the sea ice with their cubs. They are hungry and aggressive. My route along the coast would be directly crossing their paths. This was a serious concern and my 7-months pregnant wife who I left behind was very concerned for my safety. Once in the pass, the Polar Bear danger is less significant but the wind can be just as deadly. Winds falling off the flanking mountains are funnelled into the pass creating a wind tunnel that sees wind speeds of 170kmph. This, combined with temperatures below -40 and low visibility due to blowing snow can create a very dangerous situation for travellers.

    The scenery the area provides is some of the most impressive in the world. Mountains include Thor Peak which boasts the longest vertical drop in the world. Another notable mountain is the flat-topped Mt. Asgard which means Realm of the Gods and is part of Norse cosmology. The cliff is three times the height of the Empire State Building.

    Come along on this amazing journey with Buck and I to witness the grandeur and rugged beauty of Baffin Island. Watch how we travel and survive the elements and the other hardships we face. In the remote Arctic wilderness, the bond between man and dog can be strong.

    My companion Buck is no longer with us, he died late in 2019 because of bone cancer. That's one of the reasons why I'm dedicating this series to Buck and to man's best friend in general.

  • Living with Polar Bears - The Secrets of Nature

  • Miracles from the Wildside - The Secrets of Nature

    51:50

    An endearing, heart-warming documentary about the special relationship between disabled people and animals, and how those creatures are able to help generate discernible improvements with both physical and emotional problems. This is an incredibly emotional film, with plenty of tears and joyous moments as over-joyed parents watch their disadvantaged children make seemingly miraculous recoveries.

    The documentary begins with a treatment known as dolphin therapy, where autistic and emotionally disadvantaged children are rewarded in therapy sessions by being allowed to swim with captive bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins display a real sensitivity to their patients, while real improvements in behaviour are witnessed with the youngsters. For instance, Svea, a delightfully cheeky 14 year old girl from Germany, has begun to walk and is making big advances with her speech after a series of sessions over 2 years at Dolphin Cove Florida. The programme goes on to show similar recoveries with other children.

    Next we watch disabled and even visually impaired people learning to mount and ride horses, an amazing sight in itself. These people are so invigorated by this experience, that they go on to compete in the world championships for the disabled, an event being staged in Belgium in the lead up to the 2004 Para Olympic Games in Athens.

    Therapy animals feature cats, guinea pigs and giant rabbits taken to HIV-infected children in downtown Los Angeles. The looks of delight are a joy to behold, as the animals open the hearts and minds of the youngsters. We also look at a giant Macaw parrot, used by a Hollywood lawyer to help cure his medical problems.

    Finally there are the wonder dogs, some trained to help and guide blind people, others known as assistance dogs, cunning canines that open fridge doors and retrieve food and drink, call emergency telephone numbers and lift their owners in and out of bed.

    Throughout the question is posed: Do the animals possess some sensitivity or depth of understanding that we cannot comprehend? Is a miracle taking place? MIRACLES FROM THE WILDSIDE shows a series of recoveries which suggests that miracles really are taking place.

  • National Geographic I The danger of polar bears I Nat Geo Documentary

    30:23

    The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses. It is a large bear, approximately the same size as the omnivorous Kodiak bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi). A boar (adult male) weighs around 350–700 kg (772–1,543 lb), while a sow (adult female) is about half that size. Although it is the sister species of the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting seals, which make up most of its diet. Although most polar bears are born on land, they spend most of their time on the sea ice. Their scientific name means maritime bear, and derives from this fact. Polar bears hunt their preferred food of seals from the edge of sea ice, often living off fat reserves when no sea ice is present. Because of their dependence on the sea ice, polar bears are classified as marine mammals.

    Because of expected habitat loss caused by climate change, the polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species, and at least three of the nineteen polar bear subpopulations are currently in decline. For decades, large-scale hunting raised international concern for the future of the species, but populations rebounded after controls and quotas began to take effect. For thousands of years, the polar bear has been a key figure in the material, spiritual, and cultural life of circumpolar peoples, and polar bears remain important in their cultures.

  • Voices from the Tundra

    1:5:41

    In northeastern Siberia, above the Arctic Circle, live the Tundra Yukagirs, nomadic reindeer herders. Sixty-three of them still speak Yukagir, a uniquely musical language that turns melodic as storytellers relate traditional tales of Yukagir history. Only two elderly masters of this skill remain. Amsterdam linguist Cecilia Odé has made repeated trips to the remote corner of eastern Siberia that the Yukagirs call home to capture their language and preserve it for posterity. A diagnosis of metastatic cancer threatened to end these trips, but a period of remission enabled her to return to the land of the Yukagirs once again, perhaps for the last time.

    Synopsis
    Cecilia's journey features all the ingredients of a fascinating and inspiring documentary: a dedicated scholar whose life work is to preserve a vanishing language; a people torn between, on the one hand, age-old traditions and the challenges of subsistence in the brutal cold of Siberia and, on the other, the seductions of an easier life in the region's towns and cities; the primeval power of the songs retained by aged Yukagirs raised by parents who could recall pre-Soviet times and hopeful scenes of schoolchildren learning their ancestral language using materials developed with Cecelia's help; the romance of lassos, reindeer herds, and deerskin tents pitched on the ice.
    But the film's strongest asset is the heart-warming friendship that has developed between Cecilia and the Yukagirs. This friendship allows the filmmakers to enter the Yukagir community in an unforced manner and gain access to the people's innermost thoughts. The trust and confidence developed through Cecelia's longstanding relationships with members of the Yukagir community enable the filmmakers to produce a compellingly genuine portrait of extraordinary people living their lives in distant Siberia and capture frank discussions about their disappearing language, their traditional way of life, and their efforts to keep their culture alive.

  • Into the Great Solitude | PBS Special Documentaries - Solo Canoe Journeys with Robert Perkins

    1:7:16

    This now classic outdoor adventure film tells the story of Robert Perkins’ seventy-two day solo canoe journey in the Canadian Arctic. Perkins not only takes on arduous physical challenges, but he lyrically describes in film and language how the journey helps him make peace with a difficult father.

    Winner of many major awards, his best-known work provides a captivating look at Perkins as a young man willing to take on the challenges of the Canadian Arctic on a long solo canoe trip. Battling rapids and black flies, while dancing with his own demons and his shadow, Perkins explores what it means to survive in the stark beauty of the Canadian tundra. Perkins not only takes on arduous physical challenges, but he lyrically describes in film and language how the journey helps him find peace with his father.

    An Artist's Research: Stoat Skating! Take a look at this stoat as it discovers the pond is iced over. Watch as it dips its head in for a drink and then pops its whole head under the ice. It almost checks it out from the underside. Then it only takes a moment for the stoat to work out it can walk, or slide, across the ice! Watch to the end to see it skate! Read more:

  • Antarctica - on thin ice | Cath Waller | TEDxHull

    14:44

    Cath takes you on a journey to Antarctica and shoes you how plastic pollution is reaching even this most remote and fragile place. She will show you some of the amazing life that lives in these cold waters and explain how microscopic pieces of plastics racing down on the seafloor may be affecting these beautiful and diverse communities. Cath will focus on what actions we can all take to help minimise plastic pollution in the world's oceans and protect these vulnerable ecosystems. Cath is an environmental marine biologist and a Lecturer at the University of Hull. She focuses specifically on the polar regions, and her research has transported her to some of the most remote and hostile places in the world, from Sub-Antarctic South Georgia through the Scotia Arc to the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula in the south, and Greenland in the north. Cath is fascinated by these beautiful, fragile environments, and has devoted herself to understanding and protecting them and the animals that call them home. She co-chairs the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research action group Plastic at the Poles, and is a key collaborator in the British Antarctic Survey’s 3-year research project ‘Impact of Plastic in the Polar Regions’. She has undertaken around 80 dives in the icy waters of Antarctica, travelled on HMS Endurance around the Northeast Antarctic Peninsula, and even spent 8 weeks living in a tent on Livingston Island, with no access to a bath or toilet. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  • Fanu - Through Thick & Thin

    6:55

    ‣ Available here:

    Almost 2 years on from his Metalheadz Platinum debut Finnish breakbeat stalwart Fanu returns with 4 slabs of distinguished jungle music for the 'Legacy EP'.

    Fanu's characteristic crunch is consistent throughout as he joins forces with fellow countryman Infader for the title track which sits above 3 solo cuts, 1 of which drops the tempo just as his previous offering did. Ice cold breaks and galactic atmospherics drive each track along effortlessly, with Fanu laying down his own methods which have brought about his reputable nature as both a producer and trusted mastering engineer.

    BBC Documentary List:


    NatureTech Episode List:


    Broadcast (2006) Magic of Motion : Most animals, and even a few plants, move. They swim, walk, run or fly in a wide range of ways, and in this programme we look at how designers of planes, cars and robots have found inspiration in nature. But biomimetics is not just about copying nature, it's about understanding the principles behind nature's success and applying those in new and surprising ways. So exploring the world of cars and planes also gives us some startling new insights into nature as well. In this programme we find out why sharks can swim so fast, how flies and geckos can climb smooth glass and how vultures can help the next generation of airliners. We also meet robot cockroaches that might look like something from science fiction, but might be the fore-runners of the latest all terrain vehicles.

    NatureTech, a multi-award-winning series, explores biomimetics - the science of looking to nature for answers to modern problems. Why are blossoms never dirty and can we also make our cars that way? Why can geckos walk on the ceiling and can we use their tricks to create better adhesives? Why is the spider's web tougher than steel? Exciting new developments in computer technology, chemistry and physics are now enabling us to understand Nature's designs better than ever before. Scientists are not simply trying to copy nature -- they are taking hints, extracting principles and applying winning designs of evolution in a new, human context.

    Visually, this series is an attractive, fast-paced mix of stunning natural history shots, computer-assisted design and CGI graphics of futuristic inventions, ultra-modern, spacy architecture and high tech as well as scenes of the world's leading designers and engineers at work, all created by the team that made Limits of Perception.
