    During the Stone Age, humans shifted from the nomadic lifestyle to the more settled life of farmers. A documentary on an important period of human history. Watch Part 2 here:

    Around 12,000 years ago, humans underwent a transition from nomads to settlers. That epoch, the Stone Age, produced monumental building works. Part 1 of this two-part documentary illuminates the cultural background of these structures and shows the difficulties Stone Age humans had to contend with. Until around 10,000 BC, humans lived as hunters and gatherers. Then an irreversible change began. Settlements formed. For millions of years humans lived as foragers and suddenly their lives changed radically. This was far more radical than the start of the digital age or industrialization, says prehistorian Hermann Parzinger, president of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. For a long time, scholars believed that a sedentary lifestyle was a prerequisite for constructing large buildings. Then archaeologist Klaus Schmidt discovered Göbekli Tepe in southern Turkey, a 12,000-year-old complex of stone blocks weighing up to 20 tons. Its builders were still hunter- gatherers. They decorated the stone columns with ornate animal reliefs. How these structures were used and who was allowed access to them remains a mystery. But we now know that the site was abandoned and covered over once settlements took root. Human development continued its course. The discovery of agriculture and animal husbandry led to larger settlements, a changed diet and ultimately to dependence on material goods. This social upheaval in the late Neolithic period has influenced our lives up to the present day. But experts agree that the monuments of the Stone Age prove that humans have gigantomanic tendencies and a need to immortalize themselves.

    How were our Stone Age ancestors capable of building gigantic structures like burial mounds and stone rings? An insight into the history of humankind. Watch Part 1 here:

    Around 12,000 years ago, humans underwent a transition from the mobile lifestyle of hunter-gatherers to the settled life of farmers. That epoch, the Stone Age, produced monumental building works. How did our ancestors live and build back then? Part 2 of this two-part documentary takes us to unique archaeological sites in Scotland, Brittany, Austria, Malta, Turkey and Jordan. The gigantic stone circles, temples and tombs from the Stone Age beg the question not only as to why this effort was made, but also of how, given the technical possibilities of the time, our ancestors were capable of building structures like the Barnenez burial mound or the stone ring of Orkney. How many people did they need to transport a 20-ton stone? A team led by experimental archaeologist Wolfgang Lobisser carries out a test with a wooden sledge and a two-ton stone block. The Neolithic seems to have been a fairly peaceful era; at least, no artifacts indicating military conflicts have been found so far. Raids and attacks that wiped out entire villages have only been confirmed for the later Bronze Age. But the foundations of many disputes were laid back then. In addition to cult objects, the Neolithic also saw the development of the first trading systems. The people of the Neolithic were the first to become really dependent on material goods, says Marion Benz from the University of Freiburg, pointing to wafer-thin sandstone rings that researchers have found in large numbers in the Neolithic village of Ba'ja in Jordan. We need to know about prehistory in order to understand the present. Population explosion, consumerism and megacities are ultimately the heritage of the Neolithic period, when sedentary societies first appeared.

    ___________________________________

    A short documentary, created alongside a new book titled 'Cumbria's Prehistoric Monuments'. Adam Ibbotson invites you to explore a world sculpted by ancient hands.

    Britain’s megalithic monuments offer a unique glimpse into the lives and religious customs of Europe’s earliest settled communities. They are the remnants of the cultures that inhabited the British Isles during two distinct periods: the Neolithic, and the Bronze Age. Times of rapid innovation, these eras, spanning between 4000 BC and 700 BC, could be considered a prehistoric golden age of sorts. It was during this golden age, thousands of years before Roman sandals touched British shores, that some of Europe’s most iconic monuments were created.

    Many people are unaware that the best-preserved examples of such monuments, such as stone circles, cairns, and passage tombs, exist at Britain’s extremities. Among such areas are Cornwall, Scotland, Western Ireland, Wales, and as shown in this short film - Cumbria.

  • Misterios de la Edad de Piedra | DW Documental

    42:31

    Hace unos 12.000 años, el ser humano pasó de llevar una vida nómada como cazador y recolector a una vida sedentaria como agricultor. En esa época, en la Edad de Piedra, se erigieron impresionantes construcciones. ¿Cómo vivían y construían nuestros antepasados?

    La segunda parte del reportaje nos conduce a sitios arqueológicos extraordinarios en Escocia, Bretaña, Austria, Malta, Turquía y Jordania. Al observar gigantescos círculos de piedra, templos y complejos de tumbas de la Edad de Piedra no sólo se plantea la pregunta de porqué se invirtió tanto esfuerzo, sino también de cómo pudieron nuestros antepasados, con las posibilidades técnicas de entonces, erigir construcciones como el cairn de Barnenez o el círculo de piedra de las islas Orcadas. ¿Cuántas personas se necesitaron para transportar piedras macizas de 20 toneladas? Un equipo dirigido por el arqueólogo experimental Wolfgang Lobisser realiza una prueba con un trineo de madera y un bloque de piedra de dos toneladas. El Neolítico fue una era bastante pacífica, al menos hasta el momento no se han encontrado pruebas de conflictos bélicos. Las invasiones y los saqueos que exterminaban pueblos enteros recién pueden detectarse en la Edad de Bronce, aunque antes ya se habían establecido las bases de muchos conflictos. Además de las obras de arte de gran significado espiritual, en el período neolítico se desarrollaron las primeras mercancías para el comercio. El hombre neolítico fue el primero en crear una gran dependencia a los bienes materiales, dice Marion Benz de la Universidad de Friburgo, y muestra los anillos de piedra arenisca que los investigadores encontraron en grandes cantidades en el poblado neolítico Ba'ja, en Jordania. Necesitamos conocer la historia para entender nuestro presente. Las explosiones demográficas, el consumismo y las megaciudades son, en última instancia, el legado de la era neolítica, cuando comenzó la vida sedentaria.

  • Who were the Neanderthals? | DW Documentary

    42:26

    Long before Homo sapiens populated the earth, the Neanderthals lived in Eurasia.
    Now, paleoanthropologists in England and France are using new archeological methods to shed light on some previously unexplained Neanderthal mysteries.

    In an age clouded by the mists of time, the first early humans colonized the Eurasian continent. They settled on land that had only recently been covered by glaciers. This species, called Neanderthals, died out about 30,000 years ago -- but at one time, they formed the largest group in an area that stretched from northern France to the Belgian coast and from the Channel Islands to southern England.

    During the last Ice Age, the North Sea was frozen over -- and the English Channel was a small river that could easily be crossed on foot. The Neanderthals lived in close harmony with their perpetually changing environment. They had everything they needed to survive: the meat of prey animals, edible wild plants, water and wood for cooking and heating. How did these early humans develop over almost 300,000 years? What were their lives like before they became extinct?

    Our documentary is based on the latest research. We investigate various populations of Neanderthals, and visit archaeological sites in northern France, southern England, and on the island of Jersey.

    Renowned researchers such as the British paleoanthropologist Chris Stringer and his French colleague Ludovic Slimak describe how the Neanderthals lived, and discuss their cognitive abilities. Was this species capable of structured thinking? Did they have cultures, languages, and societies? How intelligent were they, and what sort of adaptive strategies kept them alive for 300,000 years? How similar were they to modern-day humans?

    MAKING OF THE FILM:
    MORE CONTENT:
    UPDATES TO THE 'PETRIFIED TREE' SEQUENCE:


    It was back in 1999 that I first approached Michael Bott with the idea of making a documentary series on little-known aspects of one of my other passions: Natural History. I was already familiar with Michael’s work. He had made a couple of films with my father, Henry Lincoln, and his impressive talent made the normally painstaking decision of who to approach, a complete no-brainer. Michael loved the idea but he very sensibly suggested that, as this was such a massive project, it would be more sensible to kick off with something else. Something we were both familiar with and could do more easily, to see how well we worked together. Little did we suspect, how an intended ‘interim’ project would become such a life-changing experience.

    Michael has been enthralled by ancient sites since childhood, and for a number of years I had been leading trips and walks to ancient sites in Britain and abroad, so the decision was easy.

    “Why don’t we make a pilot for a documentary about standing stones?” said Mike.

    “Great idea.” I replied.

    “Excellent” he said, “You write it then.”

    And so a monster was spawned.

  • Deadly waste from raw materials | DW Documentary

    42:31

    Huge quantities of raw materials are needed for mobile phones, copper pipes or wind turbines. Things that we Europeans naturally use are produced in South America under the harshest conditions. It's a filthy business.

    Latin American politicians are still relying on exports of raw materials to fuel unchecked economic growth - policies that go back more than 400 years to colonial times. The price is paid by the very same people who are affected by the consequences. The Europeans who benefit from the raw materials from South America are partly to blame.

    Cerro de Pasco in Peru is considered one of the dirtiest cities in the world because of its proximity to Swiss company Glencore’s gigantic open-cast mine, which extracts zinc, silver and lead for the world market. Anyone living in Cerro de Pasco absorbs heavy metals via tap water. The levels it contains are well above the World Health Organization’s threshold values.

    La Rinconada, what was once a small village 5,000 meters up in the Andes, has been gripped by gold fever for more than ten years and its population has exploded to more than 50,000 in that time. Gold from there is usually flown to Switzerland by courier. At the same time, La Rinconada itself has degenerated into a vast garbage dump, with rubbish piled up for miles at the entry to the town.

    The greed for raw materials is growing and growing - and recently triggered a disaster in Brazil. At the Brumadinho iron ore mine in January 2019, a retention basin burst and buried more than 250 people in toxic sludge. Previously, Germany’s TÜV technical aid organization had classified the reservoir as safe. An earlier, similar accident didn’t result in tougher laws and the mine operators did not even pay the fines imposed on them by the courts. The new president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, also continues to focus on deregulation. Before the disaster, he even wanted to leave the safety controls to the mine operators themselves.

    The unregulated mining of raw materials is rapidly spreading across South America, even into what were largely undeveloped regions. Indigenous populations are putting up a fight - and often paying with their lives.

  • Contest of the cathedrals – the Romanesque period | DW Documentary

    42:27

    Why did Christians start building cathedrals reaching to the sky 1000 years ago? Was it to demonstrate earthly power, or an attempt to be close to God? Whatever the reason, the resulting architecture still fascinates us today.

    The Romanesque period still harbors many unsolved mysteries. For example, what led people at the turn of the millennium to build churches that towered into the sky, triggering competition among cities over cathedral size and splendor? This cathedral obsession is illustrated by the examples in Mainz, Worms and Speyer.

    In St. John's Church in Mainz, a sarcophagus is opened after being sealed for 1,000 years. It’s the resting place of Archbishop Erkanbald, who built Mainz Cathedral, the largest religious building in the West at the time. It was hoped the cathedral would turn Mainz into a second Rome, promoting its archbishop to pope’s deputy. A short time later, King Conrad constructed a cathedral in Speyer, a burial place for his Salian dynasty. Its scope would befit the fact that God had installed the Salians as an imperial dynasty and therefore as supreme rulers of the world. Inevitably, there were conflicts between rulers and men of the church. But in Worms, another group established itself in the 12th Century quest for power: the emerging bourgeoisie. A new era began, in which the rigid power structures of the Romanesque period, reflected in its massive buildings, slowly broke down. As they did so, they left space for a new architectural style that honored openness and light: the Gothic.

  • The Renaissance - the Age of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci | DW Documentary

    42:31

    Beginning at the end of the 14th Century, the Renaissance created a new type of man, triggering economic, scientific, technical, religious, social and cultural developments that are unique in history.

    Never before have culture, economics and science developed so rapidly within one century as during the Renaissance. But what was the catalyst for it, what is the Renaissance factor? The Renaissance is an epoch unique in human history: Never before have art, culture, economics and science developed so rapidly within a single century. We search for the Renaissance factor, that combination of influences that triggered a pivotal period in history. It is a journey through time from Ancient Rome to the Crusades and the Black Death in the 14th century, events that defined the developments of the Renaissance. We travel with Michelangelo to the major construction site that was to become St. Peter’s Basilica, to the banking houses of the Medicis and the workshop of Johannes Gutenberg. We examine some of the many innovations of the Renaissance such as linear perspective, the printing press and double-entry bookkeeping. We ask what these achievements mean to us today and how - almost half a millennium later - we continue to benefit from the Renaissance factor. And we delve deeper with the help of spectacular reenactments and our special investigators - modern-day trendsetters, scientists, business tycoons, fashion designers and artists.

  • Looking for love ❤️ on the Faroe Islands | DW Documentary

    25:56

    Around 50 thousand people live on the Faroe Islands. But too many of them are men. Faroese women go abroad to study. Many don’t return. Men stay behind to live off the sea. Now the islands are enjoying a growing influx of women from the Philippines.

    Antonette gets her folk dress out of the closet. Like a native Faroese woman, she’s getting ready for the Ólavsøka, the national holiday of the Faroe Islands. The 36-year-old actually comes from the metropolis of Manila. But life in the Philippines was too loud, stressful and uncertain for her. Antonette sought security and safety and married Regin Egholm a year ago. Her first daughter was born nine months later. Her new happiness on the other side of the world is complete.
    Antonette is one of about 200 Filipinas who now live on the islands in the North Atlantic. Rain instead of sun, dried fish instead of tropical fruits - at first, their new life on the edge of Europe was a culture shock for many of them. And yet Filipinas and Faroe Islanders often share the same values. Family, faith and tradition are important in both cultures.

    These values are often reason enough for young, liberated Faroese women to leave. The only university is too small and most men too old-fashioned. As a result, there are about 15 percent more men than women living on the islands today. The government is trying to make the Faroes more attractive. New courses of study and more jobs are supposed to draw Faroese women back to the islands. But in the meantime, women from the Philippines are settling in their new home, where they form the largest ethnic minority on the islands, closely followed by women from Thailand.

  • Contest of the cathedrals – the Gothic period | DW Documentary

    42:27

    In 1144, the Basilica of Saint-Denis, near Paris, was consecrated. The construction was met with amazement by locals. Its hallmarks were extensive light, glass, pointed arches and diagonal ribs, and it ushered in what is known as the Gothic period.

    Let there be light! - the biblical message emanates from the Basilica of Saint-Denis. Its Gothic building principles spurred medieval architects to ever more daring constructions. Rooms would be flooded with more and more light, buildings would rise higher and higher into the heavens. In the following 100 years, more than 20 large Gothic churches were built in the Paris region. And it barely took a generation for the trend to take hold elsewhere in Europe. A contest of cathedrals saw Freiburg, Strasbourg and Ulm build the largest churches of their time. It was not only nobles and bishops who saw in these splendid buildings a chance to enhance their reputation and power; the period also presented ideal opportunities to a social group that only emerged in the 12th Century: the middle classes.

  • St. Helena - a remote island in the Atlantic | DW Documentary

    26:02

    Every third week, a British Royal Mail ship begins its journey from Cape Town to Saint Helena, the remote island in the Atlantic where Napoleon was once in exile.

    It’s like the end of the world in the middle of the Atlantic. Five days, with a northwesterly course, and only then do the sheer black cliffs appear in front of RMS St. Helena. The island’s 4500 residents are often waiting impatiently for the ship’s arrival and panic if the schedule changes. Director Thomas Denzel and his team went on the journey to Saint Helena and met the people living on the island. Many of the residents are descendants of people who were sent into exile there by the British crown - the most famous among them, the French Emperor Napoleon. This is a report about life at the end of the world, loneliness, unique vegetation, and a very special journey.

  • God-Kings of Neolithic Ireland and Britain / Megalithic Documentary

    27:45

    New discoveries in archaeology and ancient DNA have provided fascinating insights into the mysterious people who built Newgrange and Stonehenge. 2020 has seen the discovery of the world's largest prehistoric monument, a massive Mega-henge right next to Stonehenge at Durrington. At the same time, scientists have looked at the DNA of dozens of skeletons from Neolithic people of Britain and Ireland and realised that, far from being egalitarian, these megalith building societies had an elite caste comprised of what appear to be closely related, and in one case severely inbred, god-kings. Whilst looking through the new data, I came to realise that there was an interesting correlation among the phenotypes of this Neolithic elite - and I have a theory that the inbreeding may be related to a deliberate attempt to preserve archaic phenotypes from Mesolithic hunter gatherers, who the Neolithic invaders intermixed with when they first arrived in Britain and Ireland.

    In this new documentary you will learn all about megalithic people and their monuments; from passage tombs, to long barrows, dolmens and stone circles. Never before has such revealing light been shone into the darkness of this mysterious stone age culture.

  • Scotland: A future outside of the United Kingdom? | DW Documentary

    28:27

    What does it mean to be Scottish? Since Brexit, people here at the northernmost end of the island of Great Britain have been asking this question with renewed vigour. Now, with the Scottish Parliament election approaching, many Scots see their future outside of the United Kingdom.

    So how do ordinary Scottish citizens see their homeland? On her journey through Scotland, journalist Diana Zimmermann quickly learns that it is impossible to travel through the country these days without talking about Brexit. Geography and history have brought the Scots to a breaking point.

    Just ask Sophie Gault, a deer-hunter whose breath-taking workplace is in the heart of the Highlands, at the foot of Ben Alder. Being Scottish is something I’m really proud of,” says Gault, adding that taking this job was the best decision she ever made. Being with nature and with wildlife, it makes you appreciate Scotland even more. There’s always that sense of community. And I’m very proud of our own Scottish humour.”

    What does fisherman Victor Laurenson, who had hoped Brexit would bring him better fishing conditions, think of his country now? Janey Godley, a comedian from Glasgow, brings yet another perspective: In the Scottish independence referendum in 2014, she says, the English told the Scots to vote against independence so that Scotland could stay in the EU. It’s basically like your Mum and Dad saying - look - if you go to bed early, when you wake up, you will have a pony. And you go to bed, you sleep early, you wake up and there’s just a cushion in the shape of a cat instead, and it’s not even a good cat.”

  • The Renaissance - the Age of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci | DW Documentary

    42:31

    Beginning at the end of the 14th Century, the Renaissance created a new type of man, triggering economic, scientific, technical, religious, social and cultural developments that are unique in history.

    Never before have culture, economics and science developed so rapidly within one century as during the Renaissance. But what was the catalyst for it, what is the Renaissance factor? The Renaissance is an epoch unique in human history: Never before have art, culture, economics and science developed so rapidly within a single century. We search for the Renaissance factor, that combination of influences that triggered a pivotal period in history. It is a journey through time from Ancient Rome to the Crusades and the Black Death in the 14th century, events that defined the developments of the Renaissance. We travel with Michelangelo to the major construction site that was to become St. Peter’s Basilica, to the banking houses of the Medicis and the workshop of Johannes Gutenberg. We examine some of the many innovations of the Renaissance such as linear perspective, the printing press and double-entry bookkeeping. We ask what these achievements mean to us today and how - almost half a millennium later - we continue to benefit from the Renaissance factor. And we delve deeper with the help of spectacular reenactments and our special investigators - modern-day trendsetters, scientists, business tycoons, fashion designers and artists.

  • Targeted by the Stasi: revisiting the past | DW Documentary

    12:31

    The Stasi spied on Silke Orphal and Ilona Seeber for years - after they applied to go to the West. Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, they both look back at their Stasi files.

    The Stasi files of Silke Orphal and Ilona Seeber include intercepted letters, official documents and countless reports by spies who meticulously noted everything about their lives, including the turning on and off of lights. When Silke Orphal and Ilona Seeber, who were both ordinary typists at Neues Deutschland - the official newspaper of the Socialist Unity Party - applied to leave the GDR, it was considered scandalous. They were ostracized at work, threatened and subjected to interrogations that lasted hours. What did the experience do to them? How do they look back on that time today? A report by Axel Rowohlt.

  • Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland | DW Documentary

    12:01

    Twenty years after the Good Friday Agreement peace in Northern Ireland remains tenuous, and violent clashes between Protestants and Catholics continue to occur. Mairéad O’Donnell wants to secure peace for the people of Belfast.

    The Orange Order is a fraternal organization of conservative Protestants. Once a year, its members commemorate the victory of Protestant William of Orange over Catholic King James II in 1690, which the Orangemen see as the most important triumph over Catholics to this day. They organize processions in Northern Ireland during the summer to which they wear orange sashes and black bowler hats. The Catholic community sees the marching as provocation ¬– and there are often clashes. Mairéad O’Donnell belongs to the Sinn Féin party and is a Catholic Irish nationalist, but she is determined to bring peace to Belfast.

  • From rainforest to charcoal | DW Documentary

    42:31

    Huge areas of tropical rainforest are being destroyed to make charcoal for barbecues. The global deforestation is leading to growing problems. Nigeria and the DRC Congo - two of Europe’s main charcoal suppliers - are also affected.

    Every year, Europeans use approximately 800,000 tons of charcoal for barbecuing. Seventy percent of the charcoal comes from outside the EU, and the bags often contain remnants of tropical woods. Officially, tropical woods are subject to strict import conditions. But when it comes to wood charcoal, these do not apply.
    Worldwide, 2.7 billion people cook and heat with wood or charcoal. The related emission of greenhouse gases is enormous. 55 percent of global wood is used as fuel per year, and much of it is cut illegally in Africa’s bush and tropical forests. Nigeria produces most of its charcoal for export. Especially during dry periods, local Nigerian farmers use coal production as a lifeline to make money and feed their families. At the same time, charcoal mills travel the countryside in family groups, charring all the trees they can cut down. The consequences are hair-raising. Nigeria lost 36 percent of its forests between 1990 and 2005. At present, twelve percent of the country is still covered with forest - but charcoal production continues to rise, eating up 350,000 hectares of fertile land here every year. According to the UN, charcoal production is one of the main causes of deforestation in Africa, which in turn is closely linked to massive deterioration in soil quality and a growing risk of crop failure. But African legislation has been slow to respond to the problem. The coal business is highly lucrative business, and rakes in some 7.4 billion US Dollars a year. According to recent estimates, the current illegal trade in charcoal is worth almost three times as much as the trade in illegal drugs.

  • From Rio to Lima – Transoceânica, the worlds longest bus journey | DW Documentary

    42:31

    The Amazon basin in Brazil is home to the indigenous Suri people – and is also the next stop on our bus ride down the Transoceânica highway. The drive along the longest bus route in the world continues through South America.

    Passing through Rondônia, passengers expect an unforgettable journey through the Amazon basin. But there isn’t much left to see of the jungle – deforestation means the rainforest is shrinking, and with it the indigenous people who call it home. Before the highway passed through their land, the Suri tribe lived here. But outsiders carrying smallpox wiped out nearly the whole population. Those that are left live on a reserve and are fighting to protect the rainforest.

    The bus hits problems as it continues through Rondônia. In Vista Alegre do Abunã, the villagers have blocked the road with a burning barricade. Will the bus be able to get round it?

  • SECRETS OF THE STONE AGE

    29:35

    A documentary film about the Mnajdra temples. This film depicts this archaeological site as well as its optic viewpoint.

    The secrets of Mnajdra temple....a unique gem. I was lucky enough in my life to have had my late uncle Paul I. Micallef who was the first to discover the alignments during equinoxes and solstices way bac in 1979 and meet the late Professor Maelee Thomson Foster (University of Florida) who had discovered the cross-quarter day theory at Mnajdra temples.

    Their coaching led me to identify the eighth day theory thus a 16 month calendar as identified by the late Professor Alexander Thom from the University of Oxford where he had conducted statistical analysis on more than 300 megalithic sites in the British Islands.

    The resaerch on the documentary about the Mnajdra temples led me also to identify moon alignments along the main axes of the temple itself.

    Enjoy my dear friends.
    I had saved this for such a day like today!
