The high-performance Wild! Series is back … again in High Definition!
All the incredible stories of nature and wildlife will be presented, ready to enthrall your viewers.
The episodes in this season’s Wild! are:
1001 – Birthplace of Giants: An epic scientific expedition where intrepid whale researchers Curt and Micheline Jenner travel to the remote humpback whale breeding grounds near western Australia.
1002 – Platypus Worlds Strangest Animal: The platypus has both baffled and inspired the scientific community since its discovery by Europeans over 200 years ago. This blue-chip natural history film takes us to the many serenely beautiful habitats of the platypus.
1003 – Tarkine – The Forgotten Wilderness: The program magnificently captures the diversity and awe-inspiring beauty of the Tarkine wilderness area of Tasmania – its wild, raging coastlines, majestic forests, exquisite glassy rivers, haunting valleys heavy with mist, and giant ferns that date back to the Jurassic period.
1004 – Out of the Ashes: On Saturday, February 7, 2009, devastating bushfires tore through parts of Australia. Swathes of prime forest were destroyed and wildlife incinerated. But, against all odds, there were survivors of ‘Black Saturday’.
1005 – Manatees in a New Light – 600 kilos of pure friendliness – a sea cow, or manatee, is not exactly a paragon of beauty. However, they are without doubt the friendliest giants that inhabit the crystal waters of Florida’s rivers and shores.
1006 – Baboon Bandits – They steal handbags, open cars and have no respect for humans. The last baboons of the Table Mountain region have become a real plague. The resident population is split into sympathetic protectors and fierce opponents. The animals are deliberately run over by cars, shot and poisoned. The days of the last baboons at the Cape seem to be numbered.
1007 – Hardanger Plateau: The largest mountain plateau in Europe has Norway’s largest stock of wild reindeer and varied flora.
1008 – Hoanib: The Secrets of the Desert Elephants – The Namib, one of the most hostile deserts on Earth. Without a firm survival strategy, no living soul will make it here. Yet, surprisingly, some species have adapted their lifestyles to these extreme conditions: chameleons, beetles, snakes and mammals are all at home here.
Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan
Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan.
Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in his previous programs and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora.
Food is a central component of the program, but so are other key aspects to achieving the best results: the timing of when you eat, sleep, and exercise; knowing which supplements to take and which medications to potentially drop; reducing daily stress and even chemical exposures in your physical environment; nurturing relationships and your own self-care; addressing the challenges in life with grace and ease; routinely creating goals for your personal development; and finding time for the kinds of physical activities that power the brain while healing the body.
This beautiful series immerses the viewer in the nature of the northern extremities of Europe, beyond the Arctic Circle and into a land of ice and fire; from the Tundra and on to the Arctic Ocean. Wildest Arctic captures the awesome cinematic range of the Arctic region, from the crashes of vast glaciers, to the howls of the wildest wolves and the haunting remoteness of this true wilderness.
We find wolverines, lynx and leopards in the Taiga (Russian for “forest”); polar bears and whales in the Arctic Ocean; Arctic foxes and Atlantic puffins in Iceland; and follow the 2,000 mile migration of 500,000 caribou in the Tundra.
This is the arctic as you’ve never seen it before: surprisingly rich in wildlife and completely – beautifully – wild!
