  • Tour of the Arctic – from Svalbard to Siberia | DW Documentary

    42:26

    The Arctic is one of the most fascinating regions on our planet, and one of the most threatened. Two film crews explore its spectacular wilderness in a two-part documentary. Part one takes viewers from Norway’s Svalbard archipelago to Siberia.

    The region around the North Pole is one of the greatest and least-known wildernesses in the world, and it’s rapidly changing due to global warming. The retreat of Arctic sea ice can be observed everywhere along the Arctic Circle, presenting those who live there with dramatic changes. This documentary takes viewers on a journey through the Arctic circle and explores those changes.
    It begins in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, a place to see one of nature’s most spectacular displays — the northern lights. With the ice retreating, cruise ships can now travel further north than was previously possible. This places a strain on the fragile ecosystem. But more visitors may also mean more awareness about the risks that face the region, and more motivation to protect the Arctic.
    But as if often the case, protecting nature in the Arctic is at odds with economic interests. Russia, in particular, is keen to sell Arctic fossil fuels to the rest of world. The film next takes viewers to the gas-rich Yamal Peninsula in northwestern Siberia, where the Russian company Novatek has built the northernmost industrial facility on the globe.

    Further East in Yakutia, two noises fill the air: the relentless buzzing of mosquitoes that infest the Siberian tundra in summer, and the steady dripping of the thawing permafrost on the banks of the Kolyma River. The film’s journey ends in Chukotka in the northeast of Russia, a region closer to Alaska than to the Russian capital Moscow.

  • Tour of the Arctic – from Greenland to Alaska | DW Documentary

    42:26

    Two film crews explore the spectacular wilderness of the Arctic. The people who live there face dramatic changes. Part two takes viewers from East Greenland to Alaska.

    The region around the North Pole is one of the greatest and least-known wildernesses in the world - and it’s rapidly changing due to global warming. 350 people, most of them Inuit, live in Ittoqqortoormiit in Greenland. The nearest settlement is on neighboring Iceland. Almost 800 kilometers of Arctic Ocean separate the two islands. The film team accompanies an Inuit family through Scoresby Sound, a fjord system on the eastern coast of Greenland. They travel hundreds of kilometers in small boats through pack ice, passing icebergs as high as skyscrapers. On the way they meet whalers who are hunting for narwhals in summer. In this Inuit culture, narwhal skin and polar bear goulash have ensured survival for thousands of years. Greenpeace and WWF activists want to stop whaling and polar bear hunting - but this poses a threat to the indigenous way of life on Greenland. On the expedition through the world's largest fjord system, the team learns about the consequences of global warming: melting permafrost and a rapid increase in greenhouse gases. The changes are worrying. Some say they have brought benefits to the far north — the ice breaks up earlier and so too does the hunting season. However, the risks outweigh this benefit. The knowledge and way of life that have been passed down from generation to generation may soon be unsustainable.

  • The Journey to Siberia

    45:28

    Deep in the taiga, where humans are a rare sight, lies the beginning of Siberia’s giant river, the Lena. The taiga surrounding the Lena’s source is like an ocean – endless, immeasurable and dangerous. But it is habitat to many forest dwellers, who go about their lives and call it home. The taiga also opens itself up to people who know and respect the laws of the forest. Our film is about the mysterious beginning of the Lena River, its rapids and dark, ancient woods.

  • Antarctica: A message from another planet | DW Documentary

    42:26

    The world's major powers agree: the resources of Antarctica should be exploited peacefully. They have promised to promote peace and scientific research in Antarctica, and to protect its environment. But is this spirit real, or just a lot of talk?

    This documentary features interviews with researchers, activists, diplomats, and military personnel from Spain, Russia, Portugal, Chile, Argentina, and the United States. There's been much debate over how to share control of resources in Antarctica, which is the world's oldest ecosystem. Critics say that behind the scenes, a game of high-stakes poker is underway. Could this competition end in armed conflict? Or will Antarctica serve as a model for peaceful international cooperation? This film addresses these complicated issues with in-depth analysis, accompanied by magnificent images of the Antarctic landscape. The documentary's soundtrack was composed by Javier Weyler, former drummer of the Welsh rock band, the Stereophonics.

  • Growing greens in the Arctic | DW Documentary

    12:32

    In Spitsbergen, one of the northern-most populated areas inside the Arctic Circle, American Benjamin Vidmar is attempting the unthinkable.

    On an island that is dark for three months of the year, he’s growing fresh vegetables for the local community. enjamin Vidmar has worked all over the world as a chef. It was something of a coincidence that he ended up on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, in the Arctic Circle. Because he wanted to have fresh vegetables, he built a special domed-shaped greenhouse and developed his own composting system. His aim is to provide fresh, locally sourced food for the community along with a sustainable waste disposal system - developing global solutions for food production in the process. Now he wants to open his own restaurant which is to operate without producing any waste. A report by Axel Rowohlt. --------------------------------------------------------------------

  • وثائقي | الحياة في الدائرة القطبية: من أرخبيل سفالبارد إلى شرق سيبيريا | وثائقية دي دبليو

    42:25

    يعتبر القطب الشمالي من أروع المناطق على وجه الأرض وأكثرها عرضة للتهديد في نفس الوقت. يسافر فريقا تصوير حول القطب الشمالي، وينطلقان في الجزء الأول من أرخبيل سفالبارد النرويجي إلى شرق سيبيريا.


    كيف يتغير القطب الشمالي بسبب الاحتباس الحراري؟ على امتداد الدائرة القطبية الشمالية، يمكن رؤية تراجع الجليد البحري في القطب الشمالي باضطراد. هذا ما يمنح شركات الرحلات البحرية فرصة لتنظيم رحلات إلى مناطق واقعة في أقصى الشمال. غالباً ما تكون الرغبة في رؤية الشفق القطبي مرة واحدة في العمر، أكبر من مخاوف تهديد النظام البيئي. تثير أعداد السياح المتزايدة باضطراد قلق سكان سفالبارد.
    في شبه جزيرة يامال في شمال غرب سيبيريا، كان فريق تصوير الفيلم شاهداً على مشروع اقتصادي روسي طموح: فقد طورت شركة حقول الغاز هناك وبنت مع إدارة مدينة كاملة. من المقرر أن يصبح الميناء الذي يحتوي على محطة للغاز المسال محوراً للممر الشمالي الشرقي، والذي يمكن التنقل فيه، بفضل ذوبان الجليد البحري، دون مرافقة كاسحات الجليد. لكن صوتين في جمهورية ياقوتيا يقتحمان عمل فريقي التصوير هما: أزيز أسراب البعوض الكبيرة في الصيف والخرير المستمر الناجم عن ذوبان الجليد الدائم على ضفاف نهر كوليما . ينتهي الجزء الأول من الفيلم في تشوكوتكا في أقصى شمال روسيا، وهي منطقة أقرب إلى ألاسكا منها إلى العاصمة الروسية موسكو.

  • Greenland - The Largest Island in the World

    43:46

    Fjords, glaciers and the highest mountains in the Arctic: East Greenland with its spectacular nature is one of the most sparsely populated regions on earth. The people here live in extreme isolation and depend on helicopter flights for their supplies. Despite harsh conditions, the inhabitants here lovingly maintain their traditions and enjoy their outdoor leisure time even at minus 20 degrees Celsius.

    The town of Tasiilaq is the metropolis with 4,000 inhabitants and offers a very special attraction: the only ski lift on the east coast. Thomas Mikaelsen, the lift attendant, is not to be envied for his job. The only 100 meter long lift comes from Switzerland and is already 20 years old. If Thomas gets the drag lift running at all, it often only lasts for an hour. Then the ski crazy's luck depends on his repair skills. The lift is the only frosty open-air pleasure.

    For Salo Kunuk his sled dogs are both pleasure and work. He is currently teaching his daughter Karla how to steer a dog sled, private driving lessons from her father, so to speak. Karla will need it, because in the eternal ice the sled is the only means of transportation.

    Tobias Ignatiussen owns a motorized sled version with 100 HP. He goes, like already his ancestors, on seal hunt. Only with the help of the snowmobile he can reach ice-free places in the fjord. Despite strict hunting restrictions, the Inuit still depend on seal meat and fur to survive.

    A tradition almost as important as hunting is the tupilak, small figures from Greenlandic mythology, made from whale teeth or reindeer antlers. Gideon Quqe made it to the master as a carver, and some of his tupilaks look quite spooky. Because from his ancestors, Gideon knows that the tupilak was intended by its owner to be used as an evil spirit to harm the enemy. Nowadays Gideon also carves nice looking figures, because lucky charms simply sell better.

    At the Klubben, Tasiilaq's only pub, the concert of the year is on: the local combo Dubbi Band, named after the nickname of band leader Tobias Sanimuinaq, performs. They call their wild musical style Greenland Swing. Even in the middle of the white wilderness you can make your audience dance.

  • The Russians – an intimate journey through Russia | DW Documentary

    42:28

    A very private trip through Russia - a world power with a shrinking population, a myriad of ethnic minorities, and vast distances.

    Encounters with Russians from six different generations help us get to know a Russia beyond Moscow and the Kremlin. Away from the 75th Victory Day parade and displays of military might, we meet the people of Russia. They tell us of a nation poised between tradition and the future. Filmmaker Juri Rescheto travelled through the giant country, meeting with ordinary Russians who share their everyday lives with him. They talk about their joys and sorrows, their hopes and needs, and their experiences - good and bad. The film shows intimate scenes from their homes and their workplaces, as well as glimpses of their political views, their standards of living, and their customs. The protagonists’ personal situations are presented in relation to official Russian studies on the particular generation to which they belong.

    In Part 1 we go to a city halfway between Moscow and Novosibirsk to meet Jelena, who works as a surrogate mother in a children’s home. Then we travel to the boreal forest in western Siberia to meet 16-year-old Veronika, who spends most of the year in a boarding school. Her parents are reindeer herders and members of the indigenous Khanty people. The generation of young adults in Russia is represented by Kirill, who holds down a normal job, but spends his free time practicing a dangerous hobby: no holds barred boxing.

    In Part 2 of the documentary we meet Dmitri, who lives in northwestern Russia and works at Europe’s largest blast furnace. He is a proud steelworker and admires Vladimir Putin. At Lake Baikal, Baba Lyuba tells us many stories about her legendary region and her own eventful life. Finally, we make the acquaintance of Ivan, who earns a livelihood from death as an engraver of tombstones at a gigantic cemetery in central Russia.

  • -71 Degrees in Yakutie Siberia.. Coldest village on Earth

    19:29

    -71 Degrees in Yakutie Siberia.. Coldest village on Earth
    this video taken this late January , in Yakutie Siberia, shows the Life of peoples in the capital City Yakutsk, then driving 1000km to Omyakhon the village where minus 71 Celsius was registered...an extreme place for sure but peoples live a normal Life also....
    Oymyakon, in Siberia, holds the record for being the coldest permanently inhabited place on earth. The village, which sits 217 miles (350 km) below the Arctic Circle, is home to more than 210,000 people, despite its ground being in a constant state of permafrost.
    Siberian air is generally colder than Arctic air, because unlike Arctic air which forms over the sea ice around the North Pole, Siberian air forms over the cold tundra of Siberia, which does not radiate heat the same way the ice of the Arctic does.
    Oymyakon has two main valleys beside it. These valleys trap wind inside the town and create the colder climate.The temperatures here are extremely cold throughout the year, and it snows frequently. Schools are closed if it is colder than −55.0 °C (−67.0 °F).
    Yes, it's not much for such a giant land. There are two reasons: economical and psychological. Economical reason is that Kremlin is not interested in development of Siberia - it's not interesting in anything but pumping money and wasting it on anything besides those who work in regions to get these money.
    Still, 36 million people live there, and all on an area bigger than the United States! There were times when gold prospectors headed to Siberia and then exiles from all over the country were sent there. Those times have passed, but people still live in Siberia.

    Although Russian today is the dominant language in virtually every corner of North Asia, Siberia and the Northern Pacific Rim of Asia remain home to over three dozen mutually unintelligible indigenous language varieties.

  • Russia: Petrovich, hero of the taiga | DW Documentary

    12:32

    Once a center of the timber industry, Soyga is now mostly home to the elderly. For many of the village residents, train driver Petrovich with his ramshackle narrow-gauge railway is a link to the outside world, and a kind of guardian angel.

    Petrovich and his train take the spry, old residents of Soyga to the nearby town to run errands. He even brings them groceries and firewood himself, if needed. And he is there to escort them on their final trip - to the cemetery. Ever since the timber industry closed down, there have been no more jobs in Soyga. Most young people have left the village in search of work, leaving Petrovich without much reason to keep the narrow-gauge railway operational. But that hasn’t stopped him. Petrovich has become train driver and mechanic in one. A report by Juri Rescheto.

  • Europe’s toughest dogsled race | DW Documentary

    28:26

    The Finnmarksløpet in Norway is the longest and toughest dogsled race in Europe. Among this year’s competitors are Ben Voigt from Germany and 20-year-old native Hanna Lyrek. It’s a race that is always full of surprises and setbacks.
    Participants face freezing temperatures, stormy weather and a lack of sleep. The Finnmarksløpet is to the Norwegians what the Tour de France is to the French, and it’s broadcast live on TV. Once they start out, the competitors or mushers” only have their Alaskan huskies for company, and have to decide when to take breaks. Each team can have up to 14 dogs, with at least six having to make it to the finish. Given the tough conditions, Ben Voigt trains with his pack every day from August through late May. The German started mushing ten years ago after moving to Norway. He and his wife have 35 dogs in total at their home in Langfjordbotn.

    Hanna Lyrek is a natural-born musher, having learned the art from her mother. Hanna competed in her first competition at the age of four - on her own. In 2018 she became the youngest ever entrant in the Finnmarksløpet, and this year she was among the favorites. Now 20, she’s among the best in the world - and her talents have also earned her welcome sponsorship.

    This report follows the two mushers during training and the big event itself. They tell us about the vital relationships to their trusty animals, and the importance of adapting to their needs. Will they make it to the end of the grueling endurance race? And who will finish first?

  • Climate change in the desert | DW Documentary

    28:17

    Climate change is leaving its mark on Morocco’s oases, too. Sandstorms are becoming more and more frequent, groundwater levels are sinking and palm trees are shrivelling up and dying. An age-old way of life is in danger.

    Halim Sbai says an oasis really is a paradise. But drought and desertification are now taking their toll on oases like M'hamid El Ghizlane in southeastern Morocco where he grew up. The survival of a whole region is at stake. Over hundreds of kilometers between the Anti-Atlas mountains and the Sahara desert there is one palm-fringed oasis after the next. Close to two million people live in these settlements. Up to now, many earned their living by harvesting dates from the palm trees. But this is proving more and more difficult. Decreasing and irregular rainfall is having a devastating impact on the trees and their yields.

    Halim Sbai is planting new palm trees and preserving as much precious water as he can in a bid to keep the oasis of M'hamid El Ghizlane and the region’s traditional way of life alive. Up to now, he has also been supplementing his income with earnings from tourism. Global warming could put an end to all this.

  • Cold War stories rediscovered – anonymous letters from East Germany | DW Documentary

    42:27

    In 1949, at the outset of the Cold War, the BBC invited people in East Germany to send in letters. Anonymously, of course. For the next quarter of a century, on a program called Letters Without Signature, the BBC broadcast these letters, read aloud.

    The show, which ran until 1974, was very popular: Thousands of GDR citizens wrote to the BBC, using a series of cover addresses in West Berlin. But the program had been all but forgotten until German writer Susanne Schädlich came across it in a BBC archive a few years ago.

    This documentary tells the story of Cold War propaganda, and its effects on real lives both in the East and West. Where the BBC saw themselves as giving voice to the voiceless, the Stasi considered the British radio broadcast a smear campaign.

    As a result of the broadcast, a cat-and-mouse game developed between the BBC and the Stasi over cover addresses and code words. Postal checks conducted throughout the GDR led to the discovery and persecution of letter writers, who were threatened with drastic prison sentences. Still, people kept writing.

    When the BBC program’s host, Austin Harrison, made trips to the GDR, he was shadowed around the clock. Unique surveillance footage of Harrison at the Leipzig Spring Fair provides insight into the Stasi’s methods.

    Previously unpublished documents, photos and tape recordings, as well as archival material from British and German sources, bring to life the high-stakes propaganda clash that took place between East and West, via the radio.

  • Italian fishermen in Libyan custody | DW Documentary

    12:32

    Eighteen Sicilian fishermen have been in Libyan custody since September 2020. Their offence: Fishing for coveted red prawns off the coast of Libya. Their desperate families fear that more is at stake than sovereign rights at sea.

    The Italian authorities remain silent, despite the fact that experts see Libya's actions as a clear violation of international law: The country also claims the seas outside the internationally defined twelve-mile zone, where the fishermen were sailing, as its territorial waters. But the Italian navy is increasingly withdrawing from the international waters off Libya's coast at the same time. Relatives of the captive fishermen say it’s because so many refugees get into trouble on the open sea and the navy no longer wants to have to rescue them. The fishermen's families are holding vigils in front of the parliament in Rome to try to pressure Italy's politicians into getting the 18 men released at last. A report by Philipp Zahn.

  • What happened to Otto Warmbier in North Korea? | DW Documentary

    42:26

    US student Otto Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years in a North Korean labor camp in 2016. Warmbier was released the following year, but he died of brain damage shortly after his return to the United States. Was he really the victim of torture?

    Otto Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years hard labor in 2016 after being convicted of attempting to steal a propaganda poster during a trip to Pyongyang. Just over a year on he was dead, having been sent home to the US in a vegetative state. US President Donald Trump tweeted that he had been tortured beyond belief in North Korea. The US president blamed both the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the Obama administration for Warmbier’s death - and Trump appeared before the media with the student’s parents. This was at the peak of the North Korean missile crisis. Later, as relations between Trump and Kim Jong Un became warmer, the US president changed his tune. In 2019 Trump said that he believed that Kim did not know what happened to the US student much to the consternation of Warmbier’s parents.

    What really happened to Otto Warmbier in North Korea? Veteran foreign correspondent Klaus Scherer sets out to try to find out. In the documentary, Scherer interviews a number of people with knowledge of the case who have been largely unheard up to now. He shows that a US court investigating a liability case against North Korea brought by Warmbier’s parents also ignored important witnesses, who continue to cast doubt on the torture allegations. These include the coroner in Cincinnati who examined Warmbier’s body. She believes that the account given by North Korean doctors is credible. They claim that Warmbier had inadvertently been given too high a dose of sedatives by prison staff. This, the medics say was the cause of his state of unresponsive wakefulness. Could Trump’s initial torture charges simply have been motivated by political opportunism?

  • Oil promises – how oil changed a country | DW Documentary

    1:24:53

    When oil was discovered in Ghana in 2007, the country began to dream big. It dreamed that the ‘black gold’ would bring economic upswing and long-awaited prosperity to its nation. But what happens when dreams and globalization meet?

    The global economy continues to rely on oil — but the so-called ‘black gold’ is becoming scarce. If a country has oil, so we tend to believe, it has all it needs to become a wealthy country. When oil was discovered in Ghana in 2007, Ghanaians also believed that economic prosperity would soon sweep over their country. By 2010, drilling had started. Ghana was determined to do better than Nigeria, a country that exports oil, but has to import gasoline.

    This documentary, shot over a period of ten years, is a case study of globalization. Filmed in a coastal region where people lived off fishing and rubber cultivation for decades, it shows the impact the oil discovery has had on their lives. Would the promises come true? Would the ‘black gold’ bring modern life and progress, paved streets, electricity and jobs even to small villages? Filmmaker Elke Sasse and journalist Andrea Stäritz spent ten years documenting the developments on Ghana’s western coast. Nigerian animator Ebele Okoye adds her personal perspective through art, as a citizen of a nation hit by the oil curse.

  • Train across Turkey: the Dogu Express | DW Documentary

    25:57

    The Dogu Express travels across Turkey from Ankara to Kars. During the nostalgic journey, the train travels at about 70 kilometers an hour and needs a full day for the 1,310 kilometer trip. Young people especially are clamoring for tickets.

    A ticket costs less than 10 euros - but because they're in short supply - bootleg fares can be more than sixteen times that price. Sometimes it takes months to get a ticket. Almost 300,000 people use the train annually. This documentary joins young devotees of the Dogu, who prefer it to low-cost airlines. They say they make the journey to slow down. The young couple, Melve and Atalay, are no exception: They booked the trip to spend quality time with one another. Conductor Hüseyin Celik has been working the route for many years and still loves his job, and the views of the beautiful landscapes the train travels through.

  • Deadliest Journeys - Kazakhstan: Danger in the Steppe

    50:43

    In Kazakhstan, the inhabitants have adapted to withstand all of nature's challenges. This film takes us into the centre of a snowstorm where thousands of travellers find themselves caught in an enormous traffic jam. We meet farmers who rely on hostile land. The Aral Sea, now completely dried out, has given place to a desert made up of sand, salt, and dust that's toxic to the inhabitants.

  • Amen with a difference and an online blessing | DW Documentary

    12:28

    Pastors Ellen and Stefanie Radtke are married and lead a church congregation – besides running the YouTube channel “Anders Amen” (Amen with a Difference). They are a big hit online, but their bishop says it is not his thing.

    On YouTube, the two pastors compare queer sex practices with the symbols of the church year or let their followers join in on their journey to have a child through a sperm donor. In the offline world, they are typical small-town pastors, tending to funerals, afternoon events for seniors, and confirmations. The inhabitants of the tranquil Northern German village of Eime are perfectly at ease with the pastor duo’s hugely successful YouTube channel and its queer content.

  • How contract workers are exploited | DW Documentary

    28:27

    A Covid-19 outbreak at German meat-processing company Tönnies brought to light dubious conditions. The meat industry has become a hotbed of precarious employment, greedy businesses and impotent unions.


    Tönnies Holding is Germany's largest meat company. Around 25,000 pigs are slaughtered and processed each day at the main plant in the town of Rheda-Wiedenbrück. Most of the plant’s employees are contract workers from eastern Europe. They’re often hired by subcontractors who coerce them into accepting exploitative working conditions.

    As well as the meat industry, contract work is common in the construction and logistics sectors, at cleaning companies and in the automotive industry - in other words, wherever employers want to avoid the high wage costs that come with a permanent workforce. Professor Marcel Fratzscher from the German Institute for Economic Research is strongly critical of the practice. Adjusted for inflation, corporate profits have risen by almost 80% over the past 30 years, while real wages have only risen by around 15%. That’s causing a dangerous shrinking of the middle class. Today, Germany has the largest low-wage sector in western Europe. Denmark shows that there is an alternative. Despite the country being one of Europe’s big pork producers, there are no comparable Coronavirus outbreaks in the Danish meat industry. According to Jim Jensen from the Danish Food Union, this is in part because in Denmark, no employee has to fear that taking sick leave may lose them their job. There is no contract work through subcontractors; all workers are permanently employed and usually unionized. In Germany, Labor Minister Hubertus Heil now wants to improve working conditions in the meat industry. In July 2020, the German government approved a draft law banning contract work in the meat industry. From January 1, 2021, it will no longer be permitted to use outside workers in slaughtering, cutting or meat processing.

    The documentary examines the extent to which precarious and exploitative employment undermines the German welfare state, and how it is misused on a large scale in order to maximize corporate profits.

  • Coronavirus complications | DW Documentary

    28:25

    A growing number of people who recover from COVID-19 are experiencing long-term health problems. This includes younger patients without pre-existing conditions who had only mild symptoms with the virus. How are doctors and patients responding?

    The COVID-19 disease is triggered by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and can affect multiple organs. The symptoms of the initial illness are now well known. But what about the long-term effects of coronavirus? Not everyone who gets COVID-19 makes a full recovery afterwards. A growing number of people are experiencing reduced physical and abilities and cognitive symptoms. One such patient is 31-year old junior doctor Maria. Five months after falling sick, she is still unable to work normally.

    In October, Germany’s University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein launched the largest study to date on the long-term effects of coronavirus. Teams of doctors specialized in various fields of medicine are planning to examine several thousand former COVID-19 patients who have officially recovered from the virus. They’re looking in particular at the lungs, heart, kidneys and liver, as well as the nervous system and metabolism. Christopher Bley from Berlin would welcome the opportunity to be included in a study like that. The 35-year-old feels he isn’t getting the support he needs from doctors. Ever since the father of two contracted the virus, he has been battling shortness of breath. For a long time, he hoped he would heal naturally, but the problem persists.
    Writer Nina Marewski from Frankfurt feels similarly let down by doctors. She says they either ignore her or don’t take her seriously. She has been writing about her experience with coronavirus online, and is giving a voice to other post-COVID long haulers. This documentary accompanies three people who are struggling with the aftereffects of the virus. What do the health problems mean for them and how do they deal with the uncertainty about whether they will ever make a full recovery?

  • Opera during the pandemic | DW Documentary

    12:32

    For its opera season premiere, the Staatstheater Cottbus is staging Carmen”, the tale of passion, jealousy and tragedy set to music by Georges Bizet. Rehearsals were held through November under strict precautions. But will it ever premiere?

    Conductor Mario Venzago and director Stephan Märki have never rehearsed like this before. How can they keep an ensemble's morale up if they don't even know when or if the production they're working so hard on will go on stage? And that's not their only problem. Their singers have to stay shut away behind Plexiglas walls and compete with air purifiers. The climactic stage kiss is blocked by masks. And how can the choir singers maintain the required distance from one another? One thought keeps them going strong through it all: there's no quitting - culture must go on, even - and especially - in the time of corona. A report by Axel Rowohlt.

  • The last nomads of Borneo | DW Documentary

    42:25

    The Penan are one of the last indigenous hunter-gatherer tribes on earth. They are a semi-nomadic people who live in the rainforests of the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo -- and their way of life is now threatened.
    Peng Megut is one of the last forest nomads who still carry a blowgun as they roam the jungle. Peng and a number of men from his tribe are defending their community against a palm-oil plantation that they believe has trespassed on their land. Until just a few years ago, this region was home to one of the oldest primeval forests in the world. It covered an area that was half the size of Germany.

    Then timber companies started clear-cutting trees, and destroyed 90-percent of the forest. Forty tribes and ethnic groups, including the Penan, live in what's left. The Penan have resisted adopting a modern lifestyle longer than any other indigenous tribe in Borneo. They call their home Tong Tana -- which means both forest and world.

    The woodland is a central component of the Penan's identity. It is the final resting place of their ancestors, and represents the heart of their spirituality, culture, and history. The tribe's existence is sustainable, and the people live in harmony with nature. They hunt for food -- and the forest supplies all their other needs, as well. But since the mid-20th century, the lives of the Penan have changed radically. They still live in the jungle, but most of them have now moved into villages.

  • The Evictors: In the name of the law? | DW Documentary

    12:32

    In Barcelona, housing prices have been rising for years and the Corona crisis has only made things worse. Many residents can no longer pay their rent or make the payments on their mortgages. Then it’s up to Paco, the bailiff, to evict them.

    When Paco rings or knocks, the clock starts ticking. Then people have 20 minutes to pack their things and leave. Some have been unable to pay their rent for years; others bought their homes but could no longer keep up with their mortgage payments. A few are squatters because, even though there’s an acute housing shortage in Barcelona, many apartments are vacant. That’s because banks often purchase them as speculative investments - and wait to sell them when prices rise. As the same time, the Spanish government has long neglected to create more social housing. So where are people supposed to go - especially now, during the pandemic? Paco, a repossession agent, often performs more than 10 evictions a day. He understands the problems faced by those who find themselves out on the street. Being a repo man is not an easy job. A report by Norman Striegel.

  • Cash or card – will COVID-19 kill cash? | DW Documentary

    28:27

    More and more people are paying with cards or apps these days. Could COVID-19 spell the end of cash? Many people have switched to contactless payment because of fears that the coronavirus might be transmitted by bills and coins. They even use debit cards for small sums at the bakery or newsagent’s. Electronic payment systems are on the rise.

    Germany is torn. Up to now, Germans have been known for their love of cash. The country has been famously reluctant to embrace payment by card or app. But since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis more and more people have switched to paying electronically. For many months, it was unclear whether the virus could spread on paper currency and coins. It’s now believed that the risk of COVID-19 transmission on money is low. But the pandemic has amped up the trend toward cash-free payments in Germany. According to a survey by the Association of German Banks, almost 60 percent of people in Germany now pay by debit or credit card, or with smartphone apps. Marion Labouré, a strategist at Deutsche Bank and Harvard lecturer, has carried out research in this field. She says South Korea and China have even put bank notes into quarantine and destroyed bills. ‘The US Central Bank is another example,’ she adds. ‘Cash is definitely being used by fewer and fewer people. Last December, one third of Germans paid with cards or apps, now it’s about 50 percent.’

    Credit card companies, which charge fees to retailers, are profiting from this development. But data protection advocates warn that information is gathered, stored and often passed on with each electronic transaction. Sarah Spiekermann, a professor at the University of Economics and Business in Vienna, has warned of the serious consequences of this kind of surveillance capitalism: ‘Ordinary people, people who are quite similar to one another, will find themselves paying different prices for flights and hotel bookings, for instance, or they might be refused insurance or be passed over for job offers.’

    Beirut's reputation as the Paris of the Middle East was built on the city's many historic structures. These architectural gems elegantly combined both European and Middle-Eastern influences. After the explosion in early August, thousands of these buildings now lie in ruin. Most of them are privately owned, but their owners currently lack the means to secure them. Beirut's cultural scene is sounding the alarm: the destruction of these buildings threatens the soul of the city. But there is no money to rescue them. Donations are currently their only hope. Mary Cochrane is struggling to reconstruct the family home, or at least make it winter-proof. After all, Sursock Palace is one of the most famous landmarks in Beirut's Christian quarter, Ashrafieh. A report by Theresa Breuer and Vanessa Schlesier.

  • Can Africas forests help save the world? | DW Documentary

    29:25

    Humans are destroying more and more natural habitats, which brings animals into closer contact with people -- and this can contribute to the outbreak of pandemics, like Covid-19. But several African countries are trying to protect forested areas. For example, most researchers believe that the Covid-19 virus originated in bats, and then crossed over to humans. The precise origins of Covid-19 are not yet clear. But there is no doubt that a number of new viruses have originated in the animal kingdom or are transmitted in the wild. The primary source of Covid-19 is widely believed to be bats; pangolins may have served as intermediate hosts. And the destruction of forests by humans has brought many animals closer to populated areas, which has increased the threat of new diseases.

    In Uganda and Kenya, virologists and zoologists are trying to determine whether there's a connection between human contact with wild animals and the spread of viruses. They're concerned that a deadly virus like Covid can spread from humans to certain species of animals. At the Bwindi National Park in Uganda, Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, is working to protect mountain gorillas, an endangered species. She fears that the gorillas could fall victim to Covid-19, transmitted by humans. Her job has become more difficult, because a number of men who lost their jobs due to Covid restrictions have now turned to poaching gorillas.

    Kenyan scientist Augustine Baraza Obuyele is an expert on bats. He's been working at Mount Elgon on the Kenyan-Ugandan border, trying to discover new kinds of viruses among the bat population there -- viruses that could one day spread to humans, as Covid has. As humans continue to encroach on animal habitats, such as clear-cutting forests, there is an increased risk that infections could spread from animals to humans.

    The international community is concerned about these developments. For example, the U-N has declared a decade-long effort, set to begin next year, to protect and revive the world's ecosystems. The project, led by the UN's Environment Programme and its Food and Agriculture Organization, includes a number of re-forestation projects.

    Many African countries are cutting down forests to generate income, but others are committed to conservation efforts. For example, Kenya is trying to protect as much of the Mau Forest as possible. But to do this, the authorities have driven large numbers of indigenous people from their ancestral homeland. It will be difficult to find the right balance between protecting ecosystems and preserving the rights of people who live in those areas.

  • Brexit going forward: Who are the winners and losers? | DW News

    28:38

    No one really thought the UK would vote to leave the EU. But they did and it up-ended politics in Britain and the EU. When it takes effect it will change many aspects of life for people on both sides of the English Channel.
    Leaving the European Union. Leaving all the restrictions, duties, and the benefits of being part of a greater whole.
    Leaving behind freedom of movement, simple trade, and hundreds of common rules covering everything from human rights to light-bulb specifications.
    DW Correspondents Birgit Maass in London and Georg Matthes in Brussels have had front-row seats at the Brexit process from the very beginning.
    They have not only reported from the endless summits and negotiations, but also traveled through the UK and Europe, and even beyond. They met people whose lives will be affected – in some ways that could have been predicted – and in some ways that couldn’t.
    As Birgit and Georg look towards the future, they pick out those people whose fates show us what’s going to happen in a Brexit world. The fishing communities who set sail from different coasts looking to make a living from the same waters, and how bitter the fight has become for them. The British farmers who will see their income slashed, and what that’ll mean, depending on how big their farms are. The people who made their lives in Britain but are no longer welcome. And of course those on both sides of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

  • Is the Arctic the Next Superpower Battleground?

    5:37

    Climate change is not just raising environmental concerns in the Arctic. The fast melting sea ice is opening up more shipping lanes and exposing untapped energy reserves. All that has opened up a new front for competition between Russia and China on one side, and the US and its allies on the other. With poorly defined borders and race for resources, is the Arctic set to be a flashpoint for the superpowers?
