Kalahari

Nature Documentary published by PBS broadcasted as part of PBS Nature series in 2003 - English narration


Information
------------------------------

The Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa is a world of extremes, its apparent emptiness punctuated by explosions of life. Relentless cycles of dry and wet, scarcity and plenty, dictate which creatures can live here, and which will die. Shot in stunning high definition and 35mm film, and told through the eyes of renowned naturalist, filmmaker and longtime resident, Tim Liversedge, two remarkable films provide a masterful account of the inner workings of one of the last truly wild places on earth.


1) Great Thirstland
Long spells of sparse rains leave riverbeds dry, and little to eat. Then, as if by magic, swarms and multitudes of birds and insects come to life, great herds of wildebeest and zebra gather, flamingos coming home to breed fill the skies, and bullfrogs arise from years of sleep, when the great rains come to the Kalahari.

2) Flooded Desert
The Okavango River flows inland through Botswana from mountains in the north, creating a spectacular delta - a permanent wetland in the heart of the desert. It supports a vibrant community of wildlife which would otherwise never call the desert home. But this world of water is no 'safe' oasis. All life here is at the mercy of the delicate balance between the desert and the flood.

Tall Blondes

Nature Documentary hosted by Lynn Sherr and published by PBS broadcasted as part of PBS Nature series in 2002 - English narration

Image

Information
------------------------------

Lynn Sherr, the award-winning correspondent for ABC TV's 20/20 newsmagazine, went to Africa for the first time in 1973 and fell in love -- with giraffes. "They were a dazzling, unexpected revelation: gawky, graceful anomalies; cool, gentle giants dressed in golden, stained-glass coats. And when they ran, they seemed to float. I was hooked." Journey to Kenya and South Africa, and to an American zoo that is the giraffe breeding capital of the Western Hemisphere, for a revealing look at this powerful, captivating creature when Ms. Sherr hosts TALL BLONDES.

Ms. Sherr, a statuesque woman with fair hair and skin, says her friends were puzzled by her choice of favorite African mammal. But, one, nodding wisely, exclaimed, "Of course. Tall blondes." Her friend's comment inspired the title of her book, TALL BLONDES, upon which the documentary is loosely based. Ms. Sherr re-visits Giraffe Manor, outside Nairobi, Kenya, a refuge whose inhabitants include a giraffe called Lynn, in her honor. At the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, viewers witness the birth of a giraffe, which enters the world six feet above ground. The film's most exciting sequence involves trapping giraffes and relocating them to an African wildlife refuge. As Ms. Sherr notes, giraffes are not on any lists of endangered animals, but their habitats are shrinking as a result of human encroachment. The program helps debunk the notion that giraffes are silent by highlighting research indicating that they communicate through infrasound, not audible to the human ear.

In a stunning six-part miniseries narrated by stage and film actor Liev Schreiber, Thirteen/WNET New York's NATURE series presents a compelling new vision of the epic forces that have shaped every aspect of existence on our planet, in TRIUMPH OF LIFE.

More than three years in the making, TRIUMPH OF LIFE combines dramatic storytelling with powerful, groundbreaking scientific ideas in a sweeping story about survival and the survivors -- the winners, for the moment at least, in an eternal battle.

Legendary White Stallions (2013)

Image

Official Site - TvRage
At the famous Spanish Riding School of Vienna, Lipizzaners and their riders have been keeping audiences in thrall for centuries. The school is a unique and elite university, where horses train for years to successfully execute supremely difficult maneuvers. Only a very few will master the artistic and athletic skills required to perform in this ancient court of kings. Those that do earn the right to sire the next generation of stars.

The legendary breed can be traced back to the remarkable war horses the Moors of North Africa brought with them when they conquered Spain in 711. A successful fusion of Moorish and Iberian cultures led to a stunning new breed of horse - the Spanish horse - which became a highly-coveted showpiece in the stables of the aristocracy. From these bloodlines, the Austrian Hapsburg Archduke Charles created his own noble breed of horses - the Lipizzaners.

Spend backstage time with the riders and their horses, the mares and their foals, learn the secrets of the school and its traditions, and marvel as horse and rider transform what was once a weapon of war into a living work of art.
