Program 1: The End of the Earth: Shows the fierce, remote, and astonishingly beautiful part of the earth. Look into the face of the Katabatic, the downward sloping wind that decimates life and dictates the weather. Then look at icebergs at the edge of the sea, these vast platforms of ice are the source of life for seals, whales, krill, penguins and petrels, but they also have a life of their own. Program 2: Under Antarctic Ice: Beneath the surface of stunningly cold water are an abundance of life forms and ice scapes. Hillary Swank narrates encounters with 30-foot tentacles, killer whales, and more in this fascinating look under the deep blue sea
Wrenched( Visual )

Reveals how Edward Abbey's anarchistic spirit and riotous novels influenced and helped guide the nascent environmental movement of the 1970s and 1980s. Through interviews, archival footage and re-enactments, the film captures the outrage of Abbey's friends who were the original eco-warriors. In defense of wilderness, these early activists pioneered "monkeywrenching"--a radical blueprint for "wrenching the system." As exemplified by EarthFirst! in the early 1980s, direct action and civil disobedience grew in popularity

Ride the cable car up to the 200 million year table mountain for a 360 degree view you can't believe, then have a beer and fish and chips at Capetown's famous waterfront.

Springs eternal : Florida's fountain of youth( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead the Fountain of Youth, Spanish explorers searching Florida discovered a treasure for our times --- springs rising clear and pure from the ground ... warm springs that support a complex community of human and animal life above and below the surface of the waters. Advances in dive technology are only now allowing intrepid divers to explore the lightless, airless networks of underground caves formed by the springs. The risks are great but still the magic of the place is powerful; life forms entirely new to science await. Here clouds of bacteria takes the place of light to support the chain of life and blind crayfish live for more than a hundred years - twenty times longer than their surface cousins. Perhaps the fountain of youth is to be found here after all
