  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Arctic is melting | DW Documentary

    26:02

    Nowhere has experienced global warming like Svalbard, midway between Norway and the North Pole. Readings by a joint Franco-German research team show average temperatures have risen by 1.6 degrees in just ten years.

    Temperatures in Ny Ålesund, a village on the island of Spitsbergen, are rising 15 times faster than elsewhere in the world. Scientists from the AWIPEV polar station are monitoring the rapid changes - all the while keeping an eye out for dangerous polar bears. When Marion Maturilli trudges through the slush to get to her meteorological measuring instruments, station manager Piotr Kupiszewski goes with her, armed with a rifle in case they meet one. Rain in January and melting snow in early May are just the latest indications of global warming that are surprising even the scientists themselves.

  • 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 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.

    You might also enjoy some of my other films of icebreaker voyages ????:
    ⛄ Northeast Passage on a Russian icebreaker (
    ???? Icebreaker Voyage to Emperor Penguins in Antarctica (
    ⛄ Sailing the Northwest Passage (

    This is an in-depth film of a voyage through the Arctic Ocean ice to the geographic North Pole on the nuclear powered icebreaker '50 Years of Victory'. Leaving the North Pole, we visited Franz Josef Land before sailing back to Murmansk. Along the way we saw polar bears, walruses, seals and birds.

    '50 Years of Victory' (50 лет Победы / 50 Let Pobedy) is the largest and most powerful icebreaker in the world. She is an engineering marvel and is powered by 2 nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower giving her the ability to break through ice up to 2.8 meters thick or nearly 10 feet of ice.

    The 50 Years of Victory has an endurance of 5 years before she needs refuelling with new uranium. The reactors eliminate greenhouse gas emissions that are characteristic of ships burning fossil fuels.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Vaccinating against COVID-19 in Alaska | DW Documentary

    12:27

    Fort Yukon in Alaska is one of the most remote villages in the world, and people here are also afraid of Coronavirus. But now that vaccinations are being carried out, scattered families are difficult to reach.

    Fort Yukon lies eight kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. Most of the 500 or so inhabitants are Indigenous members of the Gwich'in tribe. Debra McCarty runs the local hospital and, as a result, is also responsible for vaccinating the village’s inhabitants. Some of the families she is trying to reach are only accessible by plane and snowmobile. The people here have heard of the dangerous coronavirus, and that’s why they pretty much everyone wants to be vaccinated - no matter how remote they are. They say that catching the virus here in the wilderness is pretty much fatal. DW reporter Oliver Sallet traveled to Fort Yukon to report on how people living close to the Arctic Circle are handling the pandemic.

  • 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.

    8000 Miles to Alaska: A Journey Along the Longest Border in the World | Free Documentary Nature

    What is America? Just a huge, spacious and naturally wild country - or is it still a project? And who are the Americans? A torn nation of people without roots and history - or more than all of this? What unites, what divides, what characterises and what changes them? How different are their daily lives, even now, in the icy cold, snowbound winter - depending on whether they live on Maine's remote outer islands, or in arctic Deadhorse, near the Great Lakes or in the prairies of the mid-West, in the Blackfoot reservation in the Rocky Mountains, or on board a yacht from Seattle?

    To discover America's characteristics and their transition - always with a view to the people and how they perceive home - Klaus Scherer travels through his host country on a route hitherto neglected by previous reporters: along the north border. Thus, a program event is created, whose highly visual landscape and nature photographs, along with personal experiences, connect with those we meet, visit and accompany along the way - from the dwarf school on Monehegan Island, to the head gaffer of the Niagara Falls; from wolf and bear monitors in Idaho, to the ice fishers at the Arctic Circle.

  • Building an ARCTIC AIRPORT | North Pole Ice Airport: Episode 1 | Reel Truth Documentaries

    45:37

    A team of Russian paratroopers skydive onto the frozen Arctic Ocean to build this extraordinary ice camp. Battling temperatures as low as -40° C, they will carve a unique airport on the drifting ice. From here tourists, scientists and explorers will set out to conquer, investigate and discover the secrets of the North Pole. They have just three weeks to realise their dreams before Barneo melts into the sea.

    While the advance team build the airport, Barneo's logistics team are based in the Norwegian town of Longyearbyen, 600miles south. Their job is to handle the demands of the hundreds of visitors heading for the area. Amongst the polar hopefuls are six UK office workers, making a trek to the pole to raise 250,000 for a children's health charity. Twenty year-old skydiver Johnny Strange is attempting to enter the record books as the youngest person to complete the 'Adventurers Grand Slam' by climbing the highest peak on each continent and standing at both poles. Also on the way are a group of Japanese tourists on a luxury trip to the pole by helicopter.

    For each person who makes the journey, the experience will be a mix of mental strength, physical determination and raw natural beauty.

  • 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.

  • Top 10 Most Dangerous Virus In The World | Vaccine dont Work

    13:07

    Ultimate fact presents Top 10 Most Dangerous Virus In The World. You might trying to get vaccine. However you would be surprise to know that there are lot of viruses where vaccine dose not work. Symptom returned even after vaccination. No matter how much we love our lives, some nastiest viruses will always surround us which could be horrifying and deadly. Regardless of the era humans have always had to deal with diseases like dengue and Ebola. Recently coronavirus ads up to the list like Pestilence. We have compiled Top 10 Deadliest Virus in the World other than corona virus where prevention is the only key than cure.
    Coronavirus:
    The year of 2020 started with the fear of this deadly virus name Coronavirus also known as COVID-19 Member of the family coronaviridae includes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or SARS and common cold. It came from a seafood and meat market in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
    A coronavirus is a virus that is found in animals and rarely, can be transmitted from animals to humans and then spread person to person.Fever, coughs and shortness of breath are the main major coronavirus symptoms which range from mild to severe. It takes 2 to14 days after exposure for symptoms to develop. Try to avoid people who are sick or meeting in large groups. Stay at home if you are sick.
    Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes.
    Norovirus:
    This infection can cause the sudden onset of severe vomiting and diarrhea. The virus is highly contagious and commonly spread through food or water that is contaminated during preparation or through contaminated surfaces. You can also be infected through close contact with an infected person.
    Rotavirus:
    This easily spread virus causes inflammation in the stomach and intestines. From late winter to early spring, it can cause severe diarrhea, vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, and dehydration in infants, young children, and some adults.
    If you touch your child's unwashed hands or any object he’s contaminated and then touch your mouth, you can be infected as well. Sometimes it may lead to herpangina as well. While there are medications to help with the symptoms, there is no medicine that can cure this another deadly virus. Even children who have been vaccinated against may still get it more than once.
    H1N1:
    Scientists recognized a particular strain of flu in the spring of 2009. This virus is actually a combination of viruses from pigs, birds and humans.
    During the 2009 to 2010 flu season, H1N1 caused the respiratory infection in humans that was commonly referred to as swine flu. Because so many people around the world got sick that year, the World Health Organization declared the flu a global pandemic.
    Zika Virus:
    First identified in Uganda in 1947, is transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, the same type of mosquito that carries dengue fever, yellow fever, and chikungunya virus. A mosquito bites an infected person and then passes those viruses to other people it bites.
    Epstein Barr virus:
    Member of the herpesvirus family that can infect humans. This infections are very common, you’ve probably already contracted thevirus without even knowing it. The condition that you may associate with is infectious mononucleosisor mono.
    Influenza B:
    The illness results from a virus that spreads very easily from person to person.Someone can contract the virus by coming into close contact with a person who has the infection or by touching a surface that the person has touched, then touching their own mouth or nose.
    Ebola Virus:
    Ebola isn’t as contagious as more common viruses like colds, influenza, or measles. It spreads to people by contact with the skin or fluids of an infected animal like a monkey, chimp, or fruit bat. Then it moves from person to person the same way.

    This malady made headlines in 2009 when it was first discovered in humans and became a pandemic. Pandemics are contagious diseases affecting people throughout the world or on multiple continents at the same time.
    NIPAH VIRUS:
    One of the newly emerging zoonosis that can affect both humans and animals. This is a highly contagious and deadly virus for which there is currently no vaccine and treatment for humans, as well as animals.
    The first cases of SARS occurred in late 2002 in China. Because of the contagious nature of the disease and the delayed public health response, the epidemic spread rapidly around the globe. Final statistics from the World Health Organization showed 8,096 reported illnesses and 774 deaths.

  • The Unsung Heroes of the Arctic - Ep. 3 | Wildlife: The Big Freeze

    10:47

    Polar bears dominate the Arctic animal headlines; it’s hard for anything to escape their shadow. In this episode we meet an unexpected array of smaller species that each have their own peculiar but no less entertaining strategies for surviving in this brutal environment. The tiny arctic fox might look cute, but it’s actually a killing machine. The arctic hare may be fluffy and have comical ears, but it’s both a master of camouflage and one of the fastest animals here. The snowy owl has sacrificed speed for a mightier secret weapon: silence. We find a lemming (a tiny brown rodent) running around in a blizzard, a big mistake when silent assassins are flying overhead. Although these unsung heroes are some of the few who’ve perfectly adapted to this place, the environment is changing fast. Warming temperatures are allowing enemies to move north, encroaching on these Arctic specialists.

  • A Siberian skater’s 80 years on the ice | DW Documentary

    12:32

    For the last 80 years there's no place that Lyubov Morekhodova would rather be than on Lake Baikal in southern Siberia. The sprightly senior lives on the western shore of the world's largest freshwater lake.

    Ice skating is Lyubov Morekhodova’s passion. When she straps on the steel blades she’s used for decades, she’s just as nimble as ever. Baba Lyuba – as she’s fondly called – looks after four dogs, five cows, two calves and four chickens. But whenever she’s not caring for them, she takes to the ice. Lake Baikal is often frozen over for six months of the year and the octogenarian believes skating on it is the secret to her longevity. The world’s deepest lake is her deity; she has more faith in its powers than in the miracles of Jesus, whose birth is currently being celebrated around the globe.

  • 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?

    Travel Videos (Subscribe Now) ????


    Why Greenland, and why now?

    Greenland is sort of the Midwest of the planet, in that everyone flies over it but few consider visiting. It’s more than 20 times the size of Iceland but has one-sixth the population. At more than 836,000 square miles, Greenland is the world’s largest island, but home to only around 56,000 people. For comparison, my hometown of Littleton, Colorado, population 46,000, is less than 14 square miles.

    Thanks to the Iceland tourism boom, there are cheap flights via Reykjavik all the time; from Reykjavik, the flight to the small airport at Constable Point on East Greenland is only about an hour and a half. The airport sits near the mouth of Kangertittivaq, or Scoresby Sund — the largest fjord in the world. Nearby is Ittoqqortoormiit, the northernmost community in East Greenland. Otherwise, no one lives here.

    Western Greenland has seen an increase in tourism in recent years around Ilulissat and the capital city of Nuuk, but the East coast remains largely off the grid and inaccessible as far as travel goes. You mostly hear about the Antarctic ice sheet, but our planet has two such sheets, the second covering most of Greenland. As there’s not much in the way of land-based infrastructure (most is concentrated on the West coast), Scoresby Sund can really only be seen by boat.

    Polar cruises are the best way to travel

    There are many excellent cruises in the world, but I am normally opposed to them due to the fact that while I do not fear enclosed spaces, I do fear enclosed spaces promising Organized Fun with strangers. This fear, however, is not as strong as my desire to spend as much time as possible in the Arctic Circle, and when Quark Expeditions invited me on a 10-day trip around Scoresby Sund they also turned me into a person who was excited to go on a cruise.

    It helped that this was not a typical cruise. Small adventure cruises (maybe 100 people, including crew) like this are growing in popularity as an alternative to the cartoonish, supersized outings around the Caribbean etc. Quark specializes in polar expeditions -- both Arctic and Antarctic -- and are one of very few cruise lines that go to Greenland’s east coast. The ones that do tend to make it a drive-by on routes that focus on other destinations like Norway.

    Packages vary; the specific trip I joined, “Greenland’s Northern Lights,” runs $6,695. You’ll want to budget a few hundred dollars more for add-ons like kayaking, drinking, silent auction-bidding and, of course, tipping. Quark’s expedition crew are all knowledgeable in different areas — history, marine biology, glaciology, and photography — so the cruise feels very deliberate — rest assured, you’re not just getting mindlessly steered around. An average cruise day would include breakfast followed by a morning activity like a hike, kayak expedition or Zodiac cruise, an up-close tour of icebergs and glaciers upon inflatable boats. After lunch, afternoon activities continue in the same vein. The itinerary is pretty flexible, contingent on weather and unexpected experiences like bear sightings.

    Wait, will I see polar bears?

    Polar bears only evolved around 150,000 years ago, but are predicted to go extinct within the next couple of decades, a sad, tiny blip in this planet’s history. And sure you can see them in zoos, but seeing them in the wild is something else entirely. On day one of Quark’s cruise, we saw 11 polar bears -- females with cubs making their way down to the water and disappearing into slow-moving wakes as they started to swim, and even lone males moving steadily across high plateaus, getting harder and harder to find again in binoculars as it started to snow. Pro-tip: Polar bears are generally best viewed during the brief summer season.

    One of the things the Arctic has over the Antarctic is that it’s an incredible wildlife destination -- a region where you can see not just polar bears, but musk ox, arctic fox, arctic hare, seals, whales, maybe even narwhals. (Narwhals aren’t likely, TBH, as they’re an exceedingly rare sighting, but perhaps you’ll be one of the lucky ones.) If you’re mostly interested in wildlife, Quark offers focused packages that get you tracking down your favorite critters.

  • Singapore – belief in ghosts and high-tech | DW Documentary

    42:25

    Singapore has boomed in the last few years. A city of contrasts, the people there believe in ghosts and spirits but also live in a high-tech metropolis. Singapore: an ethnically diverse city with strict laws, wild jungle and spectacular architecture.

    After its independence in 1965, the island state of Singapore became a melting pot of different ethnic groups. Chinese, Malays and Indians live here peacefully together. Forty percent of the inhabitants come from abroad. It features both breath-taking skyscrapers and colonial buildings. Here Asian culture meets western influences. And tropical nature is never far away. So, as people move further and further into the jungle with their settlements, they may come across snakes or even monitor lizards who stray into their houses in search of food. Every day, animal rescuers like Kalai Balakrishnan from the Acres Wildlife Rescue are on call to free the trapped animals. Singapore is also a culinary paradise. Li Ruifang runs a cookshop in the lively Little India district. She quit her office job to keep her parents' and grandparents' family recipes alive. When the rest of the city is still asleep, she is busy preparing her famous shrimp noodle soup. It is a tough job, now a rarity among the younger generation. Grandmaster Chew and his son also place great importance on tradition. When business is slow, someone's health is failing, or a relationship crisis is threatening, they communicate with the spiritual world and investigate which ghost is causing the problem. And then they chase the ghosts away using methods based on old teachings and customs.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.’

  • The Life of a Baby Polar Bear - Ep. 4 | Wildlife: The Big Freeze

    11:00

    In this episode we witness one of the Arctic’s most magical moments. With the help of a one-of-a-kind local tracker, we find a female polar bear fresh out of her winter den with her tiny new cub. We see ultimate cuteness as the cub explores the world outside for the first time. Their irresistible interactions distract from the fact that the mother bear is actually making an impossible decision. The mother has spent the last eight months starving, so she is eager to rush to the ocean where she can hunt. But to reach the seal feast means a 40-mile trek. Does she wait to allow the cub to gain strength for the long trek, or does she head out to sea to make sure her milk doesn’t dry up?

    We also follow a young female bear in her first moments of independence, having been kicked out by her mother. She has spent the last two and a half years with her mother preparing for this moment, but she quickly manages to get herself into trouble. Will she be able to survive a wolf on the hunt?

  • 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.

    Alaska and Hawaii

    or The Last Frontier and The Aloha State

    The two states that don’t border another state in these United States

    Both the last two states to join the Union.

    Both have a really high cost of living. This is because not only are the two desirable states to live in, but they are so isolated, so far away from most other places where most things are produced. The high cost of shipping causes everything in both states to be much more expensive. That said, Alaska has a lower cost of living compared to Hawaii.

    Perhaps because of the high cost of living, both states are slowly losing residents.

    Both are dominated by their largest cities. Anchorage, in Alaska, and Honolulu in Hawaii. Around half of all Alaskan residents live in the Anchorage metropolitan area, and more than 2/3 of all of Hawaii’s residents live in the Honolulu metropolitan area.

    Both have dramatically diverse and beautiful natural scenery, and both have dramatically diverse rainfall patterns. It’s kind of crazy actually. Ok, so in southeast Alaska in the coastal mountain ranges there, they can often get more than 200 inches (508 cm) of precipitation a year! While just south of the Alaska Range they get about 60 inches (152.4 cm) a year, 12 inches (30.5 cm) a year in the interior, and less than 6 inches (15.2 cm) a year in the North Slope.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

    Merely 4500 people inhabit East Greenland’s 20.000km long coast. It is one of the least populated places on our planet. The environment of East Greenland created one of the most specialized hunting cultures in the world. There are few places on Earth where humans suffered more hardship and coped with an extremely hostile environment than here. A lot has changed and a lot of modern comforts became part of the everyday life. But the cultural roots are still deep and strong and the hunter is the pillar of society in these areas. But the status of the hunter as the economic basis of the society has been severely undermined.
    The undermining of economic structure of their society together with unstoppable cultural influences are threatening the existence of these unique people.
