Secrets in the Dust - Uncovering the Etruscans Glory before Rome
 
49:11
Secrets in the Dust II Uncovering the Etruscans It took an Italian doctor in the 1870s to discover the legendary 12th City of the Etruscans, the mysterious people the Romans tried to write out of history, because they were jealous of this superior civilization that they had thrust aside. It was a chance find of a coin in a field that led Isodoro Falchi to indentify the site Vetulonia the last township of the Etruscan federation. This loose grouping of hilltop cities inhabited Italy’s beautiful Tuscany region for 1,000 years, until their disappearance around 500 BC. Because they decorated their tombs as facsimiles of their homes, we know exactly how they lived. From these, their unmistakable statues and other artifacts, we know that they used iron tools, built towns with stone temples, and lived in terraced houses with small interior pools. Theirs was a sensuous, prosperous lifestyle of banquets and pleasure, with equality between the sexes - and a healthy interest in sex itself. But the Etruscans had one remarkable, almost unique characteristic. As if all this was too good to be true, they predicted their own downfall, after a thousand years. The Romans seemed almost too happy to oblige, for no-one must be seen to have influenced them -- even though they built on the achievements of the Etruscans. Literally, in the case of Rome, where they even adopted their sewerage system! In Falchi’s day the archaeological authorities in Rome seemed almost as reluctant to recognize his discoveries as the Romans themselves had been to remember the Etruscans; but today’s geneticists have proved that Falchi was right. They have discovered that the current inhabitants of Campiglia Marittima , once called Vetulonia, are descended from the Etruscans of old; and they have solved a second mystery. The original ancestors of the Etruscans came not from Italy but from Asia Minor: today’s Turkey. From the latest excavations by Simona Rafanelli and Sylvia Guideri we understand one more crucial fact. The Romans may like to pretend that the Etruscans never existed - and the Etruscans may have predicted their own downfall. But today, archaeologists find evidence that Etruscans and Romans lived in harmony for a long period, worshipping the same gods, before the Romans took over, conquering lands far beyond the Italian hills to become the superpower of the ancient world.

► Vicious Beauties - The Secret World Of The Jellyfish (Full Documentary, HD)
 
44:04
The family of the jellyfish or medusae are not only the most venomous ocean inhabitants but also some of the deepest divers. Medusae have been found as deep as 8.300 meters. Their existence is paramount to the oceans. Many of the large migrations of fish and mammals would not be possible without the existence of jellies. They are a crucial part of the food chain, many fish feed on jellies and in turn mammals or larger migratory predators feed on fish.The scientist Gerhard Jarms of the Zoological Institute of the University of Hamburg takes us on a journey into the exotic world of jellyfish. He is one of the most renowned medusae scientists in the world. Our expedition begins in the northern Atlantic where we will find the mysterious periphylla. We will continue on to the Azores in the Atlantic. There we will search for the XY jellies that seek shelter in caves in rough seas. In the Pacific we will swim with the jellies in the famous Jellyfish Lake and last but not least we will explore some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs of western Papua. And at the very end danger lurks around every corner as we set out to search off Australia's coast for the fatal sea wasp- one of the most poisonous ocean inhabitants.

Super Comet Part 2 - On a Strange Planet
 
50:37
Super Comet - The longest night 65 million years ago the dinosaurs were wiped out by a gigantic asteroid. We could soon be next. We don't know when it will happen or where the asteroid will strike. We only know that it will happen - sometime - perhaps in 1000 years' time or perhaps tomorrow. Will it be the end of mankind? Through the eyes of a young astronomer we experience this catastrophic event. On discovering the asteroid on collision course with Earth, he tries to give a warning, but in vain. He survives, but this is just the beginning. The impact results in an eclipse of the sun leading to a global winter and the extinction of many life-forms. This documentary will depict the scientific background to the catastrophe, with all its consequences for mankind and the natural world. This is the end of an era, but also the beginning of a new one - the age of the conquerors. Part 1 Sixty-five million years ago, a comet hit the earth, putting an end to life as it then was. Now a comet is about to hit the earth again. In the dramatised part of this episode, Fernando Martinez, a Mexican who works in Houston, Texas, sets off home to be with his family, the Vaton family in France seeks shelter, and the Baka pygmy tribesmen continue to hunt, unaware of the impending disaster. Astrophysicist Noah Boyle, and computer scientist Shiang Yatan, remain at the observation centre in Hawaii to try to find out exactly when the comet will hit. Part 2 An asteroid hits the earth in the Mexican province of Yucatan in 2007. The impact causes the entire planet to burst into flames. Humankind is catapulted into a very dark age and this re-enacted doco-drama describes what happens 5, 10, 30, 60 and 80 days and lastly 4 months after the impact. Most life is extinguished within hundreds of kilometres of the crater. The entire earth sinks into darkness. Paris, New York, Hawaii are all in complete darkness and all plant life dies out as a result of the lack of sunlight. Temperatures fall much below anything ever experienced before. Many survivors are left absolutely alone and must fend for themselves.

Secrets in the Dust - Hunting for the Iceage
 
52:01
The Ice Age Hunters Alfred Rust was a humble electrician in 1920s Germany when he first discovered ice-age tools in a swamp near Hamburg. At that time no-one believed that ice-age man could have survived this far north. No scholar would take this amateur’s views seriously, so in 1930 he set off on a 3,000km bicycle ride to Syria, to learn about ice age civilizations. His studies there made his reputation, and back in Germany he could demonstrate how nomadic ice-age hunters lived from the meat and hides of great reindeer herds whose migration routes led between the glaciers. He even identified two quite separate cultures a thousand years apart, by their changing use of weapons. The first used slings to throw their spears further; but the second had developed the far more effective bow and arrow. These nomads depicted the animals crucial to their existence in engravings on rocks, and they found a way to preserve their meat at the bottom of icy ponds. Today experimental archaeologists test out ice-age weapons, while geologists use satellite imagery to pin-point the water sources that migrating reindeer - and hunters – would have used.

UPDATE - The World in 50 Years - E1 - Our Body
 
51:35
Episode I “The Human Body” The first episode concentrates on the future of the human body. The effect of medical progress on the body will dramatically change daily life, but this will be compounded by other technological innovations. “Intelligent” clothing and surroundings will serve to constantly monitor a person’s health and well-being in real time. Micro-chips and sensors will be ubiquitous in all kinds of products and will keep just about everything around us online at all times. Intelligent jackets that monitor important vital signs like respiration and pulse already exist as prototypes. Their data could easily be transmitted via a wireless signal, permitting the wearer to be located immediately in case of an emergency. The elderly, the infirmed and even children could be the first to benefit from this invention. In our dramatic story, protagonist Alain Dega is seriously injured in an automobile accident – a rarity in his day - and receives immediate medical attention thanks in part to his “intelligent” clothing. With multiple fractures and a hairline crack to his artificial heart, Alain is rushed by air-ambulance to the hospital of the future. By this point the exponential rate of progress in genetic research and medical technology has enabled doctors to heal virtually any injury. As an optimally insured patient, Alain Dega has access to the best medical care of his times. Even in our present day, it is already possible to produce swaths of tissue and simple organs from human cells, so when Head Physician Marie Belzac takes on his case in 2057, it’s only routine that she arrange to have a new biological heart cloned for Alain from his own cells. Alain is spared the wrenching strain of physical therapy thanks to processor-driven electrodes, which stabilize his musculature and help him get back up onto his feet quickly. While his new heart gradually takes form, Alain and Maria become closely acquainted. Unexpectedly the insurance company produces evidence indicating that Alain bares partial liability for the accident, and the posh treatment he has enjoyed as a “First Class” patient comes to a rude halt. Maria puts her career on the line to ensure the illegal transplantation of his new heart and saves in the nick of time from certain death. In the dramatic sequences in the operating room, doctors are aided by various robotic devices offering an array of capabilities. For years scientists were of the opinion that robots could some day replace surgeons completely. New research and botched operations have shown the limitations of machines in real-life situations. Each individual patient places different demands on the OR, requiring a human being to make complex decisions and react to surprises. Semi-robotic systems and intelligent instruments seem to make for the perfect compromise. Machines can offer operators the best possible points of incision and illustrate them with the help of 3-D simulations, while counterbalancing miscalculations and smoothing out shaky hands. The first episode introduces us to the future of medicine, genetic technology and health care. But only those who can pay will have access to the constantly improving possibilities of healing and life extension. Experts from various disciplines will give us their take on the consequences of online connectivity in our personal space as well as the advantages and dangers involved in genetic research and robotic development.

I Will Be Murdered TRAILER
 
01:58
Ever wondered how it would be if you got murdered…and knew beforehand? A murder story, a love story and a thriller. In May 2009, Rodrigo Rosenberg, a wealthy, charismatic lawyer went cycling near his home in Guatemala City and was murdered. Nothing unusual there: Guatemala has a murder rate four times higher than Mexico’s, worse in fact than Iraq’s for civilians during the war. What was extraordinary is that Rosenberg knew, for certain, he was about to be killed. Rosenberg’s lover had been murdered a few weeks before. He was driven to investigate things, he told his friends, that would inevitably lead to his death. A video he recorded days before he died accused the president of his murder. Uploaded to Youtube, it nearly brought down the government. There began a brilliant investigation, a journey into Rosenberg’s soul and Guatemala’s hell, that after multiple twists and turns, reached a stunning conclusion...

Secrets in the Dust - Persia Legacy of the Flames
 
51:19
Empire of the Persians In 1923 Ernst Herzfeld was the greatest living scholar of the Persian Empire, that ruled in the Middle East from 612BC until it was defeated by Alexander the Great in 330BC. That year Herzfeld set out on his last major expedition. It would last more than 10 years. It would make crucial discoveries about this misunderstood civilization, and it would end in personal disaster. A German expedition in the 1920s was of necessity small-scale, operating with little or no money. The defeated power in WWI could no longer afford such ‘luxuries’. But this was also an opportunity: the colonial powers – Britain and France – were not popular with the local governments in the region. By teaming up with oil money from America, Herzfeld could gain both political, and financial, support – enough to continue his work. And what discoveries he made: Herzfeld excavated the administrative centre of Persepolis, the Persian imperial capital, uncovering thousands of clay tablets which described in detail the administrative system and the trade networks of the Empire. Far from being the tyranny described by their Greek conquerors, this was evidence of a tolerant and cosmopolitan Empire that took the best from all the peoples it ruled. If Herzfeld found the information, his assistant Friedrich Krefter discovered the treasure – the solid gold plaque forged for the great King Darius to acknowledge his glory. But Herzfeld was Jewish, and while he was in Persia his country was taken over by the Nazis. Once again, distrust and prejudice ruled; stripped of his professorships by 20th Century tyranny, he was even accused of theft of Persia’s national treasures. Politics refuses to spare the region today, as archaeologists – notably from Australia - continue to research the ancient Persian Empire, trying now to understand how this Empire extended its power so many hundreds of kilometres from the capital. Their work is tolerated by the Iranian government, who know that building a sense of national identity and pride in the past is in their interests in the present...
