East Africa

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: East Africa

 

Most of us will never experience first-hand the wonders of East Africa, one of the last wild places on earth. However, through a photographer’s lens, we can enjoy, vicariously, the incredible landscape of East Africa and the amazing creatures that inhabit it. The documentary TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: EAST AFRICA does just that: it takes audiences on a breathtaking virtual tour of East Africa, and showcases the many wondrous animals that live there. The visually stunning program features the photography of award-winning wildlife photographer Todd Gustafson, and is narrated by renowned primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall. Over the course of an hour, viewers discover the life-and-death, day-to-day existence of these creatures, including zebras, giraffes, elephants and more, as they struggle to survive in an environment that is slowly disappearing. The camera lens captures the dramatic moment of a kill; the touching image of a mother lovingly grooming her young; the tense stand-off between two males as they fight over a mate; and the heart-stopping instance as a mother gives birth to a new offspring while wondering if a predator is on the hunt nearby.

The Egg: Life’s Perfect Invention

NATURE - The Egg: Life’s Perfect Invention

 

The egg is perhaps nature’s most perfect life support system. These remarkable structures nurture new life; protecting it from the outside world at the same time as allowing it to breathe. They are strong enough to withstand the full weight of an incubating parent and weak enough for a hatchling to break free. But how is an egg made? Why are they the shape they are? And perhaps most importantly, why lay an egg at all? Piece by piece from creation to hatching, host David Attenborough reveals the wonder behind these incredible miracles of nature.
