Each island is unique with its diversity of terrain and climate - temperate coastlines, scorching deserts, tropical rainforests and frozen, snowcapped mountains. Here are the features of a small continent, supporting one of the richest and most diverse ranges of native species on the planet. Part I Wind and water transported pioneer seeds, insects and animals to the isolated islands. They created and flourished in microclimates like the world's only surviving temperate cloud forests.

Animals and plants evolved unique features to survive in these lands. The result is startling encounters with eccentric birds and with majestic whales! Part II Highlights what it takes to survive in an unforgiving habitat, focusing on the fragile balance of life on the edge, in raw landscapes of spectacular beauty. In the ultimate survival story, a rare lizard species clinging on to one single offshore rock was saved by baby seagull droppings, the only food on their whole rocky island! More and more young people from Austria leave to fight for ISIS and are fascinated by the ideology of terror.

Around Austrian citizens sympathize with the radical ideas of the Jihadists, most of them are without prospects. Nicole Kampl and Florian Matscheko came across these young people during their research in social media networks, and take a look at who these people are, where they come from and why they move. CERN is Europe's organisation for nuclear research.

Particles are accelerated to almost the speed of light in this gigantic structure, then made to collide and split into even smaller particles. However, public opinion is also split on this project. Antimatter has already been generated here, and sceptics fear that black holes might be produced.

Is there a possibility of endangering the world by seeking to find out more about how it was created? With him it was possible to gain access to the fascinating core of the world's largest research centre, to obtain an insight into the scientists' work and to complete a crash course in particle physics. Many Russians in the Baltic states today feel connected to Europe, but others still secretly lean towards Moscow.

After the independence of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania 25 years ago, the former Soviet citizens had to find a new identity. This process, far from over, is not made easier by the Russian annexation of Crimea. Discontented Russians in particular might be susceptible to Putin's propaganda and his attempts to destabilize neighboring countries.

At least that's what the non-Russian Balts fear. It is red and burns, is called a stone, but is really a resin. Many secrets surround this fossilised pine tree resin, which has been coveted as a gem since time immemorial. In olden days its magical charm lay primarily in its sumptuous reddish colouring and its transparency. Beetles, lice and grasshoppers provide scientists with clues as to the nature of the flora and fauna of bygone ages.

This film follows the road and river connections southwards. It lingers a while in those places that were important in times gone by and in individual areas which today, in a united Europe, are again returning to prominence through cross-border projects initiated by the EU. For many believers, John Paul II was already a saint in his lifetime. Thanks to his charisma he was able to return many people to the fold of the Roman Catholic Church - and even encouraged numerous others to enter into the monastic life.

The documentary also critically illuminates the impact of the former Pontifex Maximus, the ecclesiastical practice of beatification in general and the speed of this beatification process in particular. This film profiles the Icelandic author, Hallgrimur Helgason. The writer, dramatist, painter, comic book artist and cabaret artiste is one of Iceland's most interesting artistic personalities.

In this portrait the author provides an insight into his work and the Icelandic language and culture, and also talks about current topics such as the financial crisis and the possibility of Iceland joining the EU. Tasmania makes an impression with its unique landscape, architecture and scenery. One of these courageous men was the Austrian botanist, Gustav Weindorfer. His adventurous expedition lead him to Cradle Mountain.

He was deeply moved by this spectacular world of mountains and gave his utmost to bring that wonderful experience to others. Today the Cradle Mountain National Park allows visitors from all over the world to indulge in this breathtaking landscape. Vienna is the world's only metropolis with a large, continuous forest area in its immediate vicinity - the Vienna Woods, an area blessed with an unexpected wealth of animal and plant life.

A team of natural history film-makers will pursue the wild boar, stalk the stags and crawl with the ants to portray the living Vienna Woods over the period of one year. Personal, individualized treatments, free of negative side effects are nearly a reality. This documentary examines how these treatments will be developed and shows the effects the revolution in molecular medicine has already had on the world. Chocolate, truffles or even pralines - temptation takes many forms and its specialities often turn our heads.

This film is dedicated to the production of chocolate, from the harvesting of cocoa beans to the making by hand, while also looking into its fascinating history. Prize winning master chocolatiers tell of their efforts to give the sweet temptation a personal touch through their own creations and constant experiments. Whether it's chocolate refined with essential oils from France or produced with incense which is a great hit in the Vatican - every taste is well catered for.

We live in an enlightened world. Or at least that's the way it appears. But raise the curtain on the figures, graphics, laws and hard economic data, and what lies behind it is a tide of irrationality, including company bosses taking advice from financial astrologers, new employees being selected according to their star sign and pendulums being used to make critical decisions.

The more the controlled world falters as a result of crises, the more gratefully people seem to resort to private mythologies, astrology and divination. The film explores this centuries-old fascination and examines the modern-day relationship between enlightenment, religion and superstition. They are faster than race horses, more stubborn than donkeys and tougher than any other creature tamed by man. Since time immemorial, camels have determined the lifestyle of the various nomadic tribes in Sudan. This documentary introduces us to the tribes of the Hadendowas and Rashidis and takes a look on their life together with their camels, their breeding and training.

The most important events every spring are big festivities with sword fights and a camel race for hundreds of miles. Thousands of men sometimes ride for days to come and compete with their animals. It shows us unadulterated nomadic tribes who have lived by their traditions in the same way for centuries. With and from their animals - the camels.

This documentary takes a journey years back in time to the late Neolithic and early Bronze ages, which is when the first over-water settlements on stilts, which are described here, were built. The greatest surprise during filming was how sensationally fresh and unscathed the finds that were uncovered from the mud appeared to be.

We know that bodies in bogs are often very well preserved because they are conserved in the absence of air. This is roughly how the section of a log, one of the stilts that has stood under water for thousands of years, looks, as if the tree had just been felled, with no trace of rot or decay. The same applies to all of the wooden household contents that have been uncovered, such as bowls and baskets, as well as the remains of food, materials, ropes and threads. This factor was decisive in UNESCO deciding to place at least some of the approximately 1, sites in the Alpine region under protection as world heritage sites.

It was the Third Reich's first declaration of war. Those who didn't correspond to the Nazi ideal of Aryan supremacy were categorised as subhuman and pursued, tortured and murdered. This documentary focuses on the dual racial ideology of National Socialism and shows the method and perfidious perfection of its extermination machine, while also telling the stories of the suffering of its victims. This is a film about the people living in Styria's wine-growing region and how their daily lives are continually challenged by their natural environment. The internationally acclaimed director Curt Faudon paints a rich picture of daily life in the southern Styrian hills, letting his eye wander as far south as Croatia's Istrian coast - a region which was once the centre of wine production, agriculture and fishing in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.

Therese von Schwarzenberg and the son of Heinz Kinigadner. In highly personal interviews, these sportspeople describe their experience of serious accidents, the associated convalescence and seemingly indomitable will to once again fight their way to the top of the world. In this way Lauda, Muster and Maier have all become legends that are immortal in the public's imagination. They are everywhere - and have been since time immemorial: in the air, in the water and on the land.

From the very beginning they have been part and parcel of life. Yet many aspects of these organisms remain inexplicable, even to modern science. Despite their obvious multiplicity, we classify them all in one collective term: fungi. Some , species have been identified to date worldwide. But the actual number will probably be far higher, because virtually every expedition to tropical countries brings new species to light. Some fungus specialists estimate that there might be around 1. Space - for thousands of years it has exerted a powerful attraction on humankind. However only a few have had the privilege of actually travelling into space and most people don't realise that a journey into space places the human body under extreme stress.

Astronauts have to battle with dizziness and nausea, as well as muscle deterioration, bone degradation and even heart disorders. Stress, isolation and monotony just exacerbate the already extreme conditions on board a space station. However these experiences are invaluable for medicine.

They are problems that occur to millions living on earth, especially older people. Much of the medical research from space is already being used in clinical diagnosis and therapy and in caring for the elderly. This fascinating documentary follows the work of researchers at aviation and space medicine centres and shows how their efforts make life easier for both astronauts and us, introducing volunteers, who spend weeks lying motionless in bed, in the name of space research.

Barbara Imhof has a pretty unusual job: She is a space architect. What sounds like utopia does have a realistic background: In , man is to set foot on Mars, while in American astronauts are to land on the moon again to accomplish first steps in creating a lunar interstation for manned long-term missions into space. Astronautics are increasingly focussing on manned missions again, visionary concepts mapping architectures for colonisation of extraterrestrial planets are becoming ever more important.

The documentary not only shows how construction can be accomplished under conditions of minimal gravity, but also offers an insight into the means of how astronauts could travel comfortably to planets far away, often having to spend months within their spacecraft. Previously unreleased material from space agencies of Japan, USA and Europe is shown for the first time!

An important experiment in sustainable building has been completed in the industrial city of Linz:. It's not just another suburban development, but a complete neighborhood including a marketplace, businesses, schools, community centers and all of the other amenities necessary for a modern city of people. It is connected to the public transportation network, and almost completely car free.

The Solar City is situated next to the Danube basin and has it's own bathing lake. As the name might imply, special attention has been given to the use of sustainable building methods, from low to zero energy technology, solar collectors and photovoltaic cells to water use and treatment, the development is a practical implementation of sustainable building practices.

The architectural quality of the residential and infrastructural buildings is also impressive. Internationally known architects like Norman Foster and Richard Rogers have developed low energy buildings for the project. It's a rare example of how new technologies and ecologically friendly design can result in an improved quality of living for nearly the same cost of conventional building methods. The birth of a baby panda in Vienna's Schoenbrunn Zoo caused a flurry of excitement. From the beginning the black and white bundle of fur was the darling of onlookers and visitors to the zoo.

Director Heinz Leger documented this sensation and followed the little one's development from his very first day. In November the time finally came for the adolescent panda to leave Vienna. This film looks back on the highlights of the past two years, how Fu Long practised getting into his transport crate, and accompanies him on his journey to China. Upon arrival, initially Fu Long will live with other young pandas in a small community of bachelors before hopefully producing his own offspring in a few years time and so contributing to the preservation of his species.

Stefan Kruckenhauser revolutionised state training for ski instructors and together with Schneider took this style of skiing and above ski instruction out into the world. Half the world was learning to ski on the Arlberg, according to a newsreel from the time, with royalty making their first turns in the snow here alongside countless stars and starlets. The slums of Nairobi are home to more than two million people.

Caught in a mire of need and suffering from which there is almost no escape. Sister Mary sees no reason to give up. The combative Irish nun has spent the past forty years battling corruption and mismanagement in the Kenyan capital. She has built schools and training workshops in the middle of the slums and in doing so has saved tens of thousands of slum-dwellers from a life of crime, violence and hunger. In the whole of Africa there are only two opera houses with year-round programmes - one in Cairo, and the other in Cape Town.

Opera in Africa has no tradition whatsoever. Furthermore, the role of classical music in everyday life is minimal. Nevertheless, people sing constantly and at every imaginable opportunity. South African television is full of programmes in which choirs perform for one another and with choir championships and choir documentaries. You could almost believe that every South African is involved in a choir in some way. This documentary shows three South African singers with impressive voices who originate from the townships around Cape Town.

They grew up surrounded by poverty, criminality and hopelessness, but thanks to their voices have carved out a new future for themselves and thus found a means of escaping their situation. The film observes the singers not only at rehearsals, auditions and performances but also provides an intimate glimpse of their everyday lives. Close to the border between Lower Austria and Styria is a region that is among the most peaceful and unspoilt landscapes there are: the nature reserve along the Walstern, which is home to extensive hunting and fishing grounds.

Aegyd and Mariazell. Today, the perpetually clear mountain lake, where Kaiser Franz Josef once hunted, is a paradise for water birds and fish. Visually stunning pictures of animal life and unspoilt nature illustrate a journey through and examination of every season in this peaceful valley. Sigmund Freud is one of the most important personalities of the 20th century and has not only left his imprint on psychology, his very own field of knowledge, but also on of science and cultural and intellectual history; indeed, he has shaped the twentieth century altogether.

Shoes: everyone needs them, everyone wears them. But there is much more in shoes than their practical purpose. In fact, it's quite the contrary: Shoes determine our daily outfit, with shoes we express our individuality and our attitudes towards life, they are adornment and objects of fashion; and very often objects of desire. For centuries, shoes have been part of everyday life. Shoes do not only reflect the history of fashion, but also the social and cultural changes which have taken place.

Starring among others are Manolo Blahnik, who is said to have established the connection between feet and sex, Carine Roitfeld, the chief editor of the French edition of the Vogue magazine or Valerie Steele, the shoe historian and curator of the New York Fashion Museum. In the years nearly 20, European Jewish refugees fled to Shanghai, a free port that did not require papers for entry.

This lost world and the story of survival is revealed through uncommon views of Chinese life and the memories of four survivors as well as through a collage of rare and remarkable film footage. To mark this occasion, a two-part documentary takes a closer look at Seefeld. The town is situated at the heart of Tyrol, surrounded by the wildest and most beautiful Alpine peaks. The diversity of the landscape is breathtaking, encompassing primeval forests, rushing rivers, rocky peaks, pastures and waterfalls.

While tawny owls and three-toed woodpeckers inhabit the forests, the higher elevations are home to ibex, chamois and the fastest predator on earth, the peregrine falcon. As well as the natural jewels of the region's landscapes, Seefeld in Tirol has a fascinating, complex historical relationship with its German neighbour, Bavaria. Even people who have visited Venice many times find that the city on the lagoon has plenty of hidden sides that are worth discovering. The historic importance of some of these places cannot be read about in the travel guides. Innovations that began in Venice and conquered the world from the Middle Ages onwards are taken for granted today.

We hardly know anything about their origins. This documentary presents what is perhaps the best known city in the world from an unusual angle: a Venice whose secrets, which are exciting and amusing in equal measure, are sure to have been a mystery to most people until now. In the fifteenth century the Republic of San Marco reached the peak of its power and wealth.

The state enjoyed the highest revenues in the world. Almost , people lived in Venice, which was the largest city in Italy and the fourth largest in Europe. Today its population only numbers around 70, For a long time, the Adriatic Sea used to be Central Europe's only link to the orient. Cultural riches are embedded on the Adriatic's coast against an unparalleled natural backdrop. On the northern coasts of the Adriatic stretches one of Europe's largest wetlands, which is not only a paradise for migratory birds and waders, but also the northernmost colony of flamingoes. This film follows the trail of the highly endangered griffon vultures whose last colonies are to be found on just a few islands and some rocky cliffs of the Dalmatian coast.

It reveals a range of animals that even the most tenacious of Adriatic holidaymakers rarely see, including sand vipers, mongooses and Greek tortoises in the olive groves. They are chubbier, fuzzier and more leisurely thantheir sisters, the bees. They are a lot less aggressiveand awe-inspiring than their cousins the wasps. Compared to honey bees, these social insects havelong been poorly researched, though they're athome in temperate regions throughout the NorthernHemisphere and South America. A few tropicalspecies form colonies lasting several years, but elsewhereonly the summer's new Queens survive intonext spring.

Macro and high-speed cinematographyallow us to witness their behavior, understand theirbiology, experience their unique abilities and leaveus in awe of these droll little harbingers of spring.

Technology and Culture

Do you look like your first name? Ever heard of nano-technology? Take a trip into unknown territories and discover scientific mysteries you never thought of. Are blue eyes a genetic error? Why female guinea pigs don't like machos? A transformation the like of which the viewer has never seen unfolds before his eyes. Suddenly as free as a bird, yet still in mortal danger and stripped of their possessions; that was the fate of over , Jewish citizens and political opponents of the Nazis who only managed to survive the Holocaust by fleeing abroad.

Those who succeeded in saving themselves experienced a dangerous odyssey which took them from country to country, often only one step ahead of the German Wehrmacht. By investigating the lives of four displaced Austrians on four different continents, this documentary shows their adventurous journeys. Before the arrival of Europeans, they controlled large swathes of southern Africa. Once a year the sandy fields of the Kalahari are transformed into a stage for mysterious trance, healing and hunting dances.

It is predominately the older San who today are still able to sing the old hunting songs in which they call on the spirits of killed kudus, giraffes and eland and attempt to propitiate them. The spirits of the hunted animals visit the bodies of the living during nocturnal trance dances to form a bond between man and nature and fascinating communal healing dances are intended to cure social ills. Many San groups from all over Africa travel to Botswana to display their unique spiritual energy and forget, for a while, the problems of their difficult daily lives: a marvelous festivity of hope!

Even though Salzburg has only been a part of Austria for years and many important historic events took place long before then, their impact is still formative and significant. The film offers plenty to interest both the eye and the ear with familiar as well as largely unfamiliar sights and stories. There are millions of solutions to the problems of survival but there is only one substance that has awakened all organisms to life: salt. No creature can live without this magic mineral - and no living organism can produce it on its own.

Amoebas, algae or humans - all life-forms are completely at the mercy of this simple chemical compound. In all bodies of water on earth, there is salt in abundance, and animals and humans have always been able to extract the valuable crystals from water - directly through their organs or with the aid of evaporation in salt lagoons. But on dry land, the white gold needed to be laboriously mined - sometimes at danger to life and limb.

Enormous power and lavish wealth developed in the few privileged areas where salt production flourished. In its narrative structure the aim of the film is to link the historical aspects of salt production at various locations. The three principal aspects - nature - man - civilization - are intertwined to form the main thread of the film.

Even today, the Sahara is full of miracles. Until way into the 20th century, vast areas remained unexplored. In the early thirties, the Austrian-Hungarian adventurer Ladislaus E. The desert explorer had stumbled upon one of the trickiest riddles of climate history. Following his footsteps, Schlamberger searched for evidence from the most thrilling chapter in the Sahara's natural history.

This film series takes a new look at three rivers that for centuries have shaped the people and landscapes at the heart of Europe and yet which outside of their local regions are often little known. On their banks are unique technological marvels and grand cultural monuments. Three times this cinematic journey goes from source to mouth, showing in the process how each river has its own unique character.

This documentary series combines stunning landscape scenes shot on the water, on land and in the air, with river tales told in a lively fashion - historic and modern, amazing and surprising. A programme looking at people who want to emigrate to Russia because they are scared by the cultural changes underway in Europe.

They see Putin as the saviour of the Western World and are convinced that the next few years will see civil war break out in Europe. How have the lives of the people in Russia changed since? This documentary gives people who experienced the end of the Soviet Union a voice: passionate communists for whom a world came to an end; dissidents who fought for democracy. Round is not always round.

Starting from the dawn of history, the dumpling has conquered almost all of Europe and the wider world beyond. Every region and every epoch in which this nutritious and tasty round delicacy has been eaten, has contributed to the variety of dumplings available today. The many dozens of dumpling creations give an insight into the history of this high calorie food, full of secrets, stories and anecdotes, and its development up to the present day. The rolling hills and lush green landscape of the Austrian province of Styria offer two culinary treasures of international significance.

A culinary tidbit of the special kind introducing stunning landscapes, local people, their culture and traditions. The Morava river with its forests is one of the most beautiful and ecologically valuable riverscapes featuring the richest biodiversity in all of Central Europe. Like a green ribbon, the riverine forests of the Morava - together with those of the Danube and the Dyje - link the Alps with the Carpathians, forming a bridge between Eastern and Central Europe.

The infl uence of the Pannonian climate with its hot and dry summers combines with the slowly receding high waters to form a mosaic of extremely different habitats: moist meadows lie close to sand dunes, riverine forests alternate with dry primeval oak forests. This enormous diversity of habitats creates a refuge for animal and plant species, a specifi c composition that cannot be found in any other place. Four years ago a group of zoologists ventured out to indulge into a truly crazy adventure. Their ambition: to show a flock of bald ibises, birds that have been pushed over the brink by hunting and habitat destruction and only survived in zoos, how to fly to their winter quarters on their original seasonal migration routes.

They accompanied the animals with lightweight airplanes from Austria to Italy - a chaotic event full of mishaps and some successes. But now it appears as though their dreams are about to come true: the comeback of a bird that went extinct in Europe in the Middle Ages. In the previous year two bald ibises managed to fly back to Austria without guidance. Now, for the fi fth time, human foster parents - 16 people from 4 nations - will once again lead the way for young ibises in completely novel paraplanes covering a distance of kilometres within three weeks.

This documentary takes us on a thrilling and humorous adventure introducing us to a very special family consisting of birds and humans. The history of the development of the most powerful mountain range in Europe that attracts more than 45 million tourists every year was not well researched until fairly recently. Using lavish computer animation, this production relates the astonishing genesis of the Alps - the slow, gigantic transformation from an ancient land-locked sea into one of the most majestic mountainous regions of the earth.

This documentary accompanies rescue and police pilots on their daily operations throughout the year. Together with a team of emergency doctors, they tend to the injured in remote mountain villages, save them from steep mountainsides, and fly them to hospitals. When mountain climbers are in danger, the rescue pilots move into action - fast. As in the case of avalanche when every second counts and can mean the difference between life and death to the trapped victims.

The bodies of those who cannot be saved still need to be recovered, which is also part of a rescue pilot's work. Their missions are frequently carried out under unfavorable and even dangerous conditions. However, wind, fog, snow, and the black of night do not keep these pilots from saving lives. Top concentration, courage, and experience are required for the job; and these kings of the air philosophize about their most dangerous maneuvers, their own limits, heroism, and the constant and very real fear of crashing.

What 50 years ago was a symbol of economic advancement is today an expression of personality, or a kind of substitute metal dog. With the aid of archival footage and the reminiscences of former drivers and Puch collectors the film evokes a compelling sense of nostalgia. The Chinese Wall, Japanese palaces, Arabic highrisers, Persian residential courtyards, African mosques and European timbered houses - they all are built with clay. However the material itself had fallen out of fashion for quite a while. But now, the movement towards more sustainability in almost all areas of life has boosted interest in lay immensely.

Architects, designers and even. A film about a very special construction material. How were Beethoven's orchestral works performed in his lifetime, and what differences are there to today's practice? Based on numerous anecdotes and descriptions of the performances of Beethoven's works, a picture is painted of the musical life of Vienna at the beginning of the 19th century. Less than an hour's drive south of Hungary's capital Budapest, Central Europe's last and only wandering sand dunes surprise the traveller. They are in continuous motion, shaping a landscape one would only expect in Africa.

The Puszta is home to a unique wildlife community including wolves, steppe polecats, flocks of great bustards and scores of other exotic birds. The pumpkin as a cultivated plant comes in a very special quality. From a botanical point of view, it is the world's largest berry. Through hundreds of years of cultivation, many different forms and varieties have evolved. Today, the pumpkin has turned into an object of cult. Many myths, rites and religions, who have survived through the millenniums, refer to it.

The famous paintings of Rubens and Belotto are turned into a three-dimensional experience, so that the viewer feels almost a part of the interplay between farmers and bankers, between reasons of state and a Baroque lust for life. In addition to depicting personal stories and important moments in European history, Prince Hans Adam II gives exclusive insights into the life of his family.

The beauty of nature's colors only becomes fully visible in sunlight, whether it is the splendid miracle of the rainbow or its various different forms in nature; none of the colors is a coincidence - not the green of the leaves, nor the red of blood or the deep black of space. The film gives an overview of the fascinating world of color in all its different manifestations; a journey from inorganic nature to plants, animals and to people. In the light of the sun all colors are contained. How is this possible? In wildlife and nature colors are messages: flowers, for instance, show insects the way to the nectar and thus to the stamens that load them with pollen and animals use colors as bait, as camouflage or to ward off enemies.

Why does this communication works? This documentary tries to explain these questions with all new technology and breathtaking images. During this time, he provided a first glimpse into the daily routine of the Vatican, a mystery wrapped in an enigma which no one knows better than he. The film also portrays the organization and internal structures of the Vatican, presents its peculiarities and shows numerous locations which have never been allowed to be filmed before. This film takes a look at the various ways poisons have been used throughout history, using dramatic reconstructions of some of the most infamous poisonings.

But the film doesn't stop there. Using advanced computer animation, we travel inside the bodies of a victim of the Borgias, as well as Cleopatra, Hannibal, Socrates, Emperor Leopold and a host of other unfortunate victims, to witness from the inside how they died. The film follows humanity's macabre search over thousands of years for the perfect poison. A poisoner needs a poison that is tasteless and colorless, and therefore won't be noticed by the victim.

It needs to work in low doses, so a poisoner doesn't have to feed his victim large quantities. And it needs to be reliably and quickly lethal. Finally, it needs to be undetectable after the event, so the poisoner leaves no trail of guilt. In fact, for preference it should mimic the symptoms of a disease, so no-one even suspects poisoning. Not surprisingly, such a perfect poison is not easy to find or make, and the search has occupied some of humanity's finest minds. This series presents artists, their homelands and the places of their childhoods. What became of their childhood friends and what has changed in the place where they were born?

Films and photos of the artists' families are as much a part of this series as the many memories with friends and witnesses to their childhoods. Kumbh Mela, the festival of the pitcher, is the largest of the Hindu religion's festivals. It takes place every twelve years - according to the cycle of Jupiter around the sun - in four different locations in India. Sadhus, holy Indian monks, come together from every corner of India to take part in the ritual ablutions.

For many Hindu orders, the Kumbh Mela is also where they inaugurate and accept students into their communities. This documentary accompanies two practising Hindus, Swami Maheshwarananda, who has lived in Austria for many years, and Lisa Wolf, a native of Vienna, to the festival of the pitcher. The Pielach, with a length of While the valley of the Pielach was settled by mammoth hunters as early as the ancient Stone Age, Celts and Romans left their traces later. The river is one of the last spawning waters of Huchen, a relative of the trout. Measuring up to two meters, the Huchen feels very much at home in the tranquil Pielach.

Fiery explosions flash across the night sky, while a thunderous rumbling accompanied by symphonic music leaves those watching struck with amazement. The work of master pyrotechnicians is an art. The planning, construction and choreography with music, as well as the organisation and design must all function precisely, if the audience is to be carried away. Pyrotechnician Christian Czech has reached the top of the profession: all over the world he creates fireworks displays with increasingly complex scenarios and scripts.

A look behind the scenes at the day to day work of these directors of fire. Athens is not only the setting of his crime novels. The Istanbul-born author has lived in the Greekmetropolis for around 40 years. The documentarypresents the life and works of the writer, screenwriterand translator and, against the backdropof the current Greek debt crisis, undertakes acinematic journey through Athens along thecity's oldest metro line. It is like a journey through 3, years of Europeanhistory.

The explosive social situation inAthens due to the country's dramatic debt crisisis a major theme of the film. Peppercorns are hot stuff - not only inside. The history of pepper is inextricably woven into wars and cruel personal histories, breath-taking careers and speculations. Columbus had set out to discover India, the land where the pepper grows - and found America.

The history of pepper also reflects colonialism at its most cruel. Is pepper thus a substance of nightmares? Not at all. Or, at least, not only. Sangalaki Island, situated in the Indonesian part of the Celebes Sea, with its colourful coral reefs seems to be paradise on earth. But predators like monitor lizards and sea eagles are lurking around every corner and the tiny turtle hatchlings on their way from the nest to the beach are a welcome variety on their menu.

However, only on Sangalaki the turtles are safe from their principal predator - man. At almost all the other islands of the Celebes Sea employees of Indonesian merchants arrive every morning to plunder all of the turtle nests. Turtle eggs are considered a delicacy in wide areas of Asia. The former front and supply lines have become paths of peace. This documentary brings to life the story of this region - taking us on a journey along former communication trenches, caverns and troop positions, where today hikers and mountain climbers from all over the world enjoy peace and freedom.

A dairymaid in Styria, a sheep farmer in Eastern Tyrol and a shepard in Vorarlberg offer insight into a life that is characterised through beautiful scenery as well as through a culture immensely rich in traditions. Not only does the spectacular cattle drive up to the Lechtaler Alps, when animals have to make it across a ridge meters above sea level, impress the spectator. In addition to that, it is the newfound appreciation of the alp as a vacationing place that captures the attention.

For example, the rustic huts of Oberstalleralm in Eastern Tyrol are completely booked throughout the year , despite the fact that there are no professional feel goodanimators on hand but the main attractions are comprised of a simple wood stove, running water and fresh milk. Maria Magdalena Koller shows life as it is on the Alp, one of the most traditional ways of living in Austria - unfolding within the breathtakingly impressive theatre of the Austrian mountains. But is this the whole truth? Was she the person propaganda has painted? Or was her private side as extraordinary as new discoveries show?

Her name sums up a century of bourgeois economic progress and imperialism - the zeitgeist of the Industrial Revolution. But was she a queen for the people? Did she alleviate the hunger and misery of the working classes? New documents show that this queen had a darker side. While millions of her subjects died or emigrated during the famines of the s, it took five murders to open her mind; she then donated 15 percent of the annual royal allowance to the poor.

With new access to her diaries and letters we discover a complex personality: a queen who struggled with her political role and her private power - a fun-loving hedonist who appreciated sensual love as well as the presence of attractive men. This is a Victoria full of contradictions. A woman who seeks her own role while breaking the codes of the court and the conventions of her time. The secrets of a sovereign who is still revered as a 'National Treasure' of the once largest empire on earth.

Paraguayans are thoroughly positive and cooperative people. With this affirmative outlook on life, they have survived the highs and lows of the country's different forms of government. The serenity with which the people face even the most precarious situation is astounding and something not often seen among the peoples of the world. Paracelsus - a philosopher, physician, alchemist and field researcher of traditional European folk medicine. Paracelsus rejected theoretical learning; for him only his experience and the observations he had made on his travels throughout Europe counted. H is aim was to understand the true nature of man and his relationship to the cosmos, and he sought ways to produce genuinely curative medicines with whose help he hoped to be able to create in man a harmony of body, mind and spirit.

Even in his day Paracelsus had discovered man's ability to heal himself. What remains of Paracelsus' holistic view of the world in today's system of medicine? We found people who look to Paracelsus and apply his knowledge of holistic healing in a practical way: anthroposophical physicians, naturopaths, pharmacists and spagyricists, exponents of astromedicine and herbalism as well as representatives of the EU platform for complementary medicine.

Back pain, limb pain and headaches: permanent features of life for millions of people. Contrary to what has long been popular belief, however, chronic pain is not merely a symptom, but a disease in itself. And it is treatable. Und die ist behandelbar. The cookery show that's a little diff erent, theTV-sensation that's a little diff erent: 3 amateurcooks - food critic Florian Holzer, artist ThomasNowak and photographer Ingo Pertramer - decideto buy an organic ox, slaughter it themselves andprocess it within two weeks. The challenge is to cook a whole ox. From start tofi nish, from head to toe.

So the performers buy aliving animal from the green Alps, slaughter it, butcherit and during a two-week open-air cooking-sessionprocess, turn it into durable and appetizingpreserved meat. It's made durable not least to showthat the supermarket shelf isn't a foregone conclusion. The meat is smoked and dried, but mainlyboiled down - in dozens of diff erent varieties andwith tons of recipes.

Classically and through all theworld's cuisines. The idea sounds simple, but it proves to be a raceagainst time, inner resistance, technical problemsand culinary confl icts. In eight episodes, a projectthat was about curing the meat of an animal thatgrew up happily, using classical methods and thebest recipes, turns into the most sensitive cookeryshow in TV history. In the years to approximately 10, Austrian Jews were deported from Vienna to the Belarus capital of Minsk and then on to the National Socialist concentration camp, Maly Trostinez.

Only 20 people survived this horror. Amongst them is now year-old Alfred Seiler who has lived in Florida for many years. Tormented his entire life by the dreadful memories from the past, he embarks on a journey to the former sites of horror in an attempt to finally process the terrible experiences in the NS camp. Can he banish them once and for all? Water - just a liquid or much more? New analyses of this life giving substance have caused a sensation around the world.

Many researchers are convinced that water is capable of storing information and retrieving it. Scientists have found out, for example, that water can store measurable information - even without any contact. Bacteria can also assess changes in water, a thousand times more precisely than any physical or chemical measuring instruments. The possible applications are innumerable: limitless retention and storage capacity and the key to discovering the origins of life on our planet.

One thing is clear - research into water is just at the beginning.

It wasn't an isolated case that year. Storms had brought the finest Saharan sand to the Alps - and this, combined with the summer sun, caused the glaciers to begin to melt. In Tyrol alone the eternal ice gave up 6 bodies, including tourists and mountaineers. He is the oldest preserved mummy in the world - even older than the Egyptian kings. His discovery opened a new door into the past.

A scientific sensation and the oldest known criminal case in history - a case that is yet to be solved. Scarcely any other Czech musician lived his life filled on the one hand by such exhilarating successes and on the other by such mean-spirited attacks, animosity and hate as Oskar Nedbal - His artistic and personal fate starts with a dramatic, steep upward trajectory, yet after the turning point this was followed by a free fall ending in suicide.

The moving documentary "Oskar Nedbal - Ups And Downs" follows the real life and works of the musician against the backdrop of historic events in Europe. Despite this, his love for the city of his birth, Istanbul, remains undiminished. In this film the author explains his heartfelt relationship to Istanbul, a city which, more than any other, spans the divide between modern Europe and mystical traditions of the Orient. He gives exclusive insights into his life and work and leads us through the vibrant and culturally flourishing metropolis on the Bosporus. Europe's countryside is largely shaped by agriculture and by highly specialized, efficient farms.

However, in the seventies of the past century, a counter-movement set in: ecological management became a new topic on the agenda. The film features an organic farm as it traverses the different cycles of the year, its main protagonists being farm animals and pets as well as wild game that regularly visit its surrounding meadows and fields.

The film portrays the behavior and peculiarities of the farm's cows, pigs, goats, chickens and ducks. Rather than presenting any new livestock species or inaccessible corners of the land, this documentary introduces the viewers into a well known world, that still is full of secrets. Three farmers - three countries - one product. How much work goes into the harvesting and selling of one kilogram of wheat for a farmer in Austria, a farmer in Russia and a farmer in the US? What kind of compensation do they get in return?

Although they are located in completely different cultural areas, the farms are comparable in size, income and social structure. When his father was deeply injured by a sniper and his wife was expecting their child, Abdulmajid drew up a plan: he decided to pave his way to Europe with his father before reunifying the family there.

But the way to Europe is a treacherous trail. An odyssey and a race against time begin as ISIS is getting closer and closer. Abdulmajid Raslan filmed the most important stations during this exceptional journey and shows a breathtaking report from the perspective of a war refugee. The Shannon is Ireland's greatest geographical landmark and the longest river in these islands.

For kilometers the river carves its way south through the heart of the country almost splitting Ireland intwo. It is both a barrier and highway - a silver ribbon holding back the rugged landscapes of the westfrom the gentler plains to the east. On its journey, the Shannon passes through a huge palette of rural landscapes. On little known backwaters, Ireland's wild animalsand plants still thrive as almost nowhere else.

There is no river on earth where so many dreams were dreamt, where so many dreams came true or fell apart, where the dividing line between life and death is as thin as on the Mississippi - North America's great river. The Mississippi is the world's third largest river. Since the first human beings set foot on the North-American subcontinent, the face of the river has changed dramatically.

This epic film shows the great American river in cinematically beautiful images and emotions. Moving cameras show the endlessness of the land, the impenetrable wilderness and, in stark contrast, the shining steel facades of modern metropolises. The film also reveals a fascinating world inhabited by rare plant and animal wildlife with a distinctly exotic touch. At the same time, it invites us on a journey through history.

In several episodes, with the aid of CGI we travel into the past from characteristic sites. The arid sand deserts of Peru have been preserving mummies and burial artefacts over many millennia. Starting out from these finds, the movie goes in hot pursuit of what happens at and around the excavation sites of Peru.

On the one hand there's Peruvian archaeologist Sonia Guillen, who has dedicated her life to the proper scientific investigation of her country's heritage. Her efforts are frequently frustrated by grave looters: entire villages make their living by digging up ancient burying places to get at artefacts which earn the huaceros a few dollars but which bring enormous wealth to international smuggling networks. Quite often it is the grave robbers who put scientists on the tracks of new discoveries - yet every devastated site is another irredeemable loss of our heritage.

The documentary illuminates the criminal entanglements of the international antique market and follows the famous FBI art cops in reconstructing the spectacular robbery of one of the most. With their "Appeal to Disobedience" the Austrian Priests' Initiative for church reform have caused a great stir among Catholic laity and church authority. There is particularly great support for a priesthood of married men and for female priests. But what does the priests' "disobedience" mean in concrete terms?

How does the church define obedience, or in other words, who must a priest obey: the bishop, his own conscience - or God? The documentary "Obedience" attempts to find answers to these questions and provides an outlook on the consequences of disobedience for the church of the future. Using latest CGI combined with live-action reconstructions, this film follows the journey of a molecule of oxygen, an adventure that takes place over a span of thousands of millions of years.

The story begins with the photosynthesis of a bacteria - and in doing so it produces the molecule of oxygen gas. The way of the oxygen unfolds and at times it is torn apart and becomes part of other molecules. It is involved in the conflagrations that accompanied the death of the dinosaurs after the great asteroid impact, then travels through a human body to combine with haemoglobin in the blood and to take part in chemical reactions in individual cells. For a while the oxygen even spends some time as ozone, protecting earth from deadly radiation but then connects to a carbon dioxide molecule to help warming earth and bring about unknown consequences of climate change.

Following this fascinating story, the film explores key moments in the history of earth and science in an unusual and visual way. Juni in Singapur zusammenkommen, dann wird das ein wahrhaft historisches Gipfeltreffen. Here are the features of a small continent, supporting one of the richest and most diverse ranges of native species on the planet. Part I Wind and water transported pioneer seeds, insects and animals to the isolated islands. They created and flourished in microclimates like the world's only surviving temperate cloud forests. Animals and plants evolved unique features to survive in these lands.

The result is startling encounters with eccentric birds and with majestic whales! Part II Highlights what it takes to survive in an unforgiving habitat, focusing on the fragile balance of life on the edge, in raw landscapes of spectacular beauty. In the ultimate survival story, a rare lizard species clinging on to one single offshore rock was saved by baby seagull droppings, the only food on their whole rocky island!

More and more young people from Austria leave to fight for ISIS and are fascinated by the ideology of terror. Around Austrian citizens sympathize with the radical ideas of the Jihadists, most of them are without prospects. Nicole Kampl and Florian Matscheko came across these young people during their research in social media networks, and take a look at who these people are, where they come from and why they move.

CERN is Europe's organisation for nuclear research. Particles are accelerated to almost the speed of light in this gigantic structure, then made to collide and split into even smaller particles. However, public opinion is also split on this project. Antimatter has already been generated here, and sceptics fear that black holes might be produced. Is there a possibility of endangering the world by seeking to find out more about how it was created?

With him it was possible to gain access to the fascinating core of the world's largest research centre, to obtain an insight into the scientists' work and to complete a crash course in particle physics. Many Russians in the Baltic states today feel connected to Europe, but others still secretly lean towards Moscow. After the independence of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania 25 years ago, the former Soviet citizens had to find a new identity. This process, far from over, is not made easier by the Russian annexation of Crimea. Discontented Russians in particular might be susceptible to Putin's propaganda and his attempts to destabilize neighboring countries.

At least that's what the non-Russian Balts fear. It is red and burns, is called a stone, but is really a resin. Many secrets surround this fossilised pine tree resin, which has been coveted as a gem since time immemorial. In olden days its magical charm lay primarily in its sumptuous reddish colouring and its transparency. Beetles, lice and grasshoppers provide scientists with clues as to the nature of the flora and fauna of bygone ages. This film follows the road and river connections southwards. It lingers a while in those places that were important in times gone by and in individual areas which today, in a united Europe, are again returning to prominence through cross-border projects initiated by the EU.

For many believers, John Paul II was already a saint in his lifetime. Thanks to his charisma he was able to return many people to the fold of the Roman Catholic Church - and even encouraged numerous others to enter into the monastic life. The documentary also critically illuminates the impact of the former Pontifex Maximus, the ecclesiastical practice of beatification in general and the speed of this beatification process in particular. This film profiles the Icelandic author, Hallgrimur Helgason.

The writer, dramatist, painter, comic book artist and cabaret artiste is one of Iceland's most interesting artistic personalities. In this portrait the author provides an insight into his work and the Icelandic language and culture, and also talks about current topics such as the financial crisis and the possibility of Iceland joining the EU. Tasmania makes an impression with its unique landscape, architecture and scenery. One of these courageous men was the Austrian botanist, Gustav Weindorfer.

His adventurous expedition lead him to Cradle Mountain. He was deeply moved by this spectacular world of mountains and gave his utmost to bring that wonderful experience to others. Today the Cradle Mountain National Park allows visitors from all over the world to indulge in this breathtaking landscape. Vienna is the world's only metropolis with a large, continuous forest area in its immediate vicinity - the Vienna Woods, an area blessed with an unexpected wealth of animal and plant life. A team of natural history film-makers will pursue the wild boar, stalk the stags and crawl with the ants to portray the living Vienna Woods over the period of one year.

Personal, individualized treatments, free of negative side effects are nearly a reality. This documentary examines how these treatments will be developed and shows the effects the revolution in molecular medicine has already had on the world. Chocolate, truffles or even pralines - temptation takes many forms and its specialities often turn our heads. This film is dedicated to the production of chocolate, from the harvesting of cocoa beans to the making by hand, while also looking into its fascinating history. Prize winning master chocolatiers tell of their efforts to give the sweet temptation a personal touch through their own creations and constant experiments.

Whether it's chocolate refined with essential oils from France or produced with incense which is a great hit in the Vatican - every taste is well catered for. We live in an enlightened world. Or at least that's the way it appears. But raise the curtain on the figures, graphics, laws and hard economic data, and what lies behind it is a tide of irrationality, including company bosses taking advice from financial astrologers, new employees being selected according to their star sign and pendulums being used to make critical decisions.

The more the controlled world falters as a result of crises, the more gratefully people seem to resort to private mythologies, astrology and divination. The film explores this centuries-old fascination and examines the modern-day relationship between enlightenment, religion and superstition. They are faster than race horses, more stubborn than donkeys and tougher than any other creature tamed by man. Since time immemorial, camels have determined the lifestyle of the various nomadic tribes in Sudan.

This documentary introduces us to the tribes of the Hadendowas and Rashidis and takes a look on their life together with their camels, their breeding and training. The most important events every spring are big festivities with sword fights and a camel race for hundreds of miles. Thousands of men sometimes ride for days to come and compete with their animals.

It shows us unadulterated nomadic tribes who have lived by their traditions in the same way for centuries. With and from their animals - the camels. This documentary takes a journey years back in time to the late Neolithic and early Bronze ages, which is when the first over-water settlements on stilts, which are described here, were built.

The greatest surprise during filming was how sensationally fresh and unscathed the finds that were uncovered from the mud appeared to be. We know that bodies in bogs are often very well preserved because they are conserved in the absence of air. This is roughly how the section of a log, one of the stilts that has stood under water for thousands of years, looks, as if the tree had just been felled, with no trace of rot or decay. The same applies to all of the wooden household contents that have been uncovered, such as bowls and baskets, as well as the remains of food, materials, ropes and threads.

This factor was decisive in UNESCO deciding to place at least some of the approximately 1, sites in the Alpine region under protection as world heritage sites.

It was the Third Reich's first declaration of war. Those who didn't correspond to the Nazi ideal of Aryan supremacy were categorised as subhuman and pursued, tortured and murdered. This documentary focuses on the dual racial ideology of National Socialism and shows the method and perfidious perfection of its extermination machine, while also telling the stories of the suffering of its victims. This is a film about the people living in Styria's wine-growing region and how their daily lives are continually challenged by their natural environment.

The internationally acclaimed director Curt Faudon paints a rich picture of daily life in the southern Styrian hills, letting his eye wander as far south as Croatia's Istrian coast - a region which was once the centre of wine production, agriculture and fishing in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Therese von Schwarzenberg and the son of Heinz Kinigadner. In highly personal interviews, these sportspeople describe their experience of serious accidents, the associated convalescence and seemingly indomitable will to once again fight their way to the top of the world.

In this way Lauda, Muster and Maier have all become legends that are immortal in the public's imagination. They are everywhere - and have been since time immemorial: in the air, in the water and on the land. From the very beginning they have been part and parcel of life. Yet many aspects of these organisms remain inexplicable, even to modern science. Despite their obvious multiplicity, we classify them all in one collective term: fungi. Some , species have been identified to date worldwide. But the actual number will probably be far higher, because virtually every expedition to tropical countries brings new species to light.

Some fungus specialists estimate that there might be around 1. Space - for thousands of years it has exerted a powerful attraction on humankind. However only a few have had the privilege of actually travelling into space and most people don't realise that a journey into space places the human body under extreme stress. Astronauts have to battle with dizziness and nausea, as well as muscle deterioration, bone degradation and even heart disorders.

Stress, isolation and monotony just exacerbate the already extreme conditions on board a space station. However these experiences are invaluable for medicine. They are problems that occur to millions living on earth, especially older people. Much of the medical research from space is already being used in clinical diagnosis and therapy and in caring for the elderly. This fascinating documentary follows the work of researchers at aviation and space medicine centres and shows how their efforts make life easier for both astronauts and us, introducing volunteers, who spend weeks lying motionless in bed, in the name of space research.

Barbara Imhof has a pretty unusual job: She is a space architect. What sounds like utopia does have a realistic background: In , man is to set foot on Mars, while in American astronauts are to land on the moon again to accomplish first steps in creating a lunar interstation for manned long-term missions into space. Astronautics are increasingly focussing on manned missions again, visionary concepts mapping architectures for colonisation of extraterrestrial planets are becoming ever more important.

The documentary not only shows how construction can be accomplished under conditions of minimal gravity, but also offers an insight into the means of how astronauts could travel comfortably to planets far away, often having to spend months within their spacecraft. Previously unreleased material from space agencies of Japan, USA and Europe is shown for the first time! An important experiment in sustainable building has been completed in the industrial city of Linz:. It's not just another suburban development, but a complete neighborhood including a marketplace, businesses, schools, community centers and all of the other amenities necessary for a modern city of people.

It is connected to the public transportation network, and almost completely car free. The Solar City is situated next to the Danube basin and has it's own bathing lake. As the name might imply, special attention has been given to the use of sustainable building methods, from low to zero energy technology, solar collectors and photovoltaic cells to water use and treatment, the development is a practical implementation of sustainable building practices.

The architectural quality of the residential and infrastructural buildings is also impressive. Internationally known architects like Norman Foster and Richard Rogers have developed low energy buildings for the project. It's a rare example of how new technologies and ecologically friendly design can result in an improved quality of living for nearly the same cost of conventional building methods. The birth of a baby panda in Vienna's Schoenbrunn Zoo caused a flurry of excitement.

From the beginning the black and white bundle of fur was the darling of onlookers and visitors to the zoo. Director Heinz Leger documented this sensation and followed the little one's development from his very first day. In November the time finally came for the adolescent panda to leave Vienna. This film looks back on the highlights of the past two years, how Fu Long practised getting into his transport crate, and accompanies him on his journey to China. Upon arrival, initially Fu Long will live with other young pandas in a small community of bachelors before hopefully producing his own offspring in a few years time and so contributing to the preservation of his species.

Stefan Kruckenhauser revolutionised state training for ski instructors and together with Schneider took this style of skiing and above ski instruction out into the world. Half the world was learning to ski on the Arlberg, according to a newsreel from the time, with royalty making their first turns in the snow here alongside countless stars and starlets. The slums of Nairobi are home to more than two million people.

Caught in a mire of need and suffering from which there is almost no escape. Sister Mary sees no reason to give up. The combative Irish nun has spent the past forty years battling corruption and mismanagement in the Kenyan capital. She has built schools and training workshops in the middle of the slums and in doing so has saved tens of thousands of slum-dwellers from a life of crime, violence and hunger. In the whole of Africa there are only two opera houses with year-round programmes - one in Cairo, and the other in Cape Town.

Opera in Africa has no tradition whatsoever. Furthermore, the role of classical music in everyday life is minimal. Nevertheless, people sing constantly and at every imaginable opportunity. South African television is full of programmes in which choirs perform for one another and with choir championships and choir documentaries.

You could almost believe that every South African is involved in a choir in some way. This documentary shows three South African singers with impressive voices who originate from the townships around Cape Town. They grew up surrounded by poverty, criminality and hopelessness, but thanks to their voices have carved out a new future for themselves and thus found a means of escaping their situation. The film observes the singers not only at rehearsals, auditions and performances but also provides an intimate glimpse of their everyday lives. Close to the border between Lower Austria and Styria is a region that is among the most peaceful and unspoilt landscapes there are: the nature reserve along the Walstern, which is home to extensive hunting and fishing grounds.

Aegyd and Mariazell. Today, the perpetually clear mountain lake, where Kaiser Franz Josef once hunted, is a paradise for water birds and fish. Visually stunning pictures of animal life and unspoilt nature illustrate a journey through and examination of every season in this peaceful valley. Sigmund Freud is one of the most important personalities of the 20th century and has not only left his imprint on psychology, his very own field of knowledge, but also on of science and cultural and intellectual history; indeed, he has shaped the twentieth century altogether.

Shoes: everyone needs them, everyone wears them. But there is much more in shoes than their practical purpose. In fact, it's quite the contrary: Shoes determine our daily outfit, with shoes we express our individuality and our attitudes towards life, they are adornment and objects of fashion; and very often objects of desire. For centuries, shoes have been part of everyday life. Shoes do not only reflect the history of fashion, but also the social and cultural changes which have taken place. Starring among others are Manolo Blahnik, who is said to have established the connection between feet and sex, Carine Roitfeld, the chief editor of the French edition of the Vogue magazine or Valerie Steele, the shoe historian and curator of the New York Fashion Museum.

In the years nearly 20, European Jewish refugees fled to Shanghai, a free port that did not require papers for entry. This lost world and the story of survival is revealed through uncommon views of Chinese life and the memories of four survivors as well as through a collage of rare and remarkable film footage. To mark this occasion, a two-part documentary takes a closer look at Seefeld. The town is situated at the heart of Tyrol, surrounded by the wildest and most beautiful Alpine peaks. The diversity of the landscape is breathtaking, encompassing primeval forests, rushing rivers, rocky peaks, pastures and waterfalls.

While tawny owls and three-toed woodpeckers inhabit the forests, the higher elevations are home to ibex, chamois and the fastest predator on earth, the peregrine falcon. As well as the natural jewels of the region's landscapes, Seefeld in Tirol has a fascinating, complex historical relationship with its German neighbour, Bavaria. Even people who have visited Venice many times find that the city on the lagoon has plenty of hidden sides that are worth discovering.

The historic importance of some of these places cannot be read about in the travel guides. Innovations that began in Venice and conquered the world from the Middle Ages onwards are taken for granted today. We hardly know anything about their origins. This documentary presents what is perhaps the best known city in the world from an unusual angle: a Venice whose secrets, which are exciting and amusing in equal measure, are sure to have been a mystery to most people until now.

In the fifteenth century the Republic of San Marco reached the peak of its power and wealth. The state enjoyed the highest revenues in the world. Almost , people lived in Venice, which was the largest city in Italy and the fourth largest in Europe. Today its population only numbers around 70, For a long time, the Adriatic Sea used to be Central Europe's only link to the orient.

Cultural riches are embedded on the Adriatic's coast against an unparalleled natural backdrop. On the northern coasts of the Adriatic stretches one of Europe's largest wetlands, which is not only a paradise for migratory birds and waders, but also the northernmost colony of flamingoes. This film follows the trail of the highly endangered griffon vultures whose last colonies are to be found on just a few islands and some rocky cliffs of the Dalmatian coast.

It reveals a range of animals that even the most tenacious of Adriatic holidaymakers rarely see, including sand vipers, mongooses and Greek tortoises in the olive groves. They are chubbier, fuzzier and more leisurely thantheir sisters, the bees. They are a lot less aggressiveand awe-inspiring than their cousins the wasps. Compared to honey bees, these social insects havelong been poorly researched, though they're athome in temperate regions throughout the NorthernHemisphere and South America. A few tropicalspecies form colonies lasting several years, but elsewhereonly the summer's new Queens survive intonext spring.

Macro and high-speed cinematographyallow us to witness their behavior, understand theirbiology, experience their unique abilities and leaveus in awe of these droll little harbingers of spring. Do you look like your first name? Ever heard of nano-technology? Take a trip into unknown territories and discover scientific mysteries you never thought of. Are blue eyes a genetic error?

Why female guinea pigs don't like machos? A transformation the like of which the viewer has never seen unfolds before his eyes. Suddenly as free as a bird, yet still in mortal danger and stripped of their possessions; that was the fate of over , Jewish citizens and political opponents of the Nazis who only managed to survive the Holocaust by fleeing abroad.

Those who succeeded in saving themselves experienced a dangerous odyssey which took them from country to country, often only one step ahead of the German Wehrmacht. By investigating the lives of four displaced Austrians on four different continents, this documentary shows their adventurous journeys. Before the arrival of Europeans, they controlled large swathes of southern Africa.

Once a year the sandy fields of the Kalahari are transformed into a stage for mysterious trance, healing and hunting dances. It is predominately the older San who today are still able to sing the old hunting songs in which they call on the spirits of killed kudus, giraffes and eland and attempt to propitiate them. The spirits of the hunted animals visit the bodies of the living during nocturnal trance dances to form a bond between man and nature and fascinating communal healing dances are intended to cure social ills.

Many San groups from all over Africa travel to Botswana to display their unique spiritual energy and forget, for a while, the problems of their difficult daily lives: a marvelous festivity of hope! Even though Salzburg has only been a part of Austria for years and many important historic events took place long before then, their impact is still formative and significant. The film offers plenty to interest both the eye and the ear with familiar as well as largely unfamiliar sights and stories. There are millions of solutions to the problems of survival but there is only one substance that has awakened all organisms to life: salt.

No creature can live without this magic mineral - and no living organism can produce it on its own. Amoebas, algae or humans - all life-forms are completely at the mercy of this simple chemical compound. In all bodies of water on earth, there is salt in abundance, and animals and humans have always been able to extract the valuable crystals from water - directly through their organs or with the aid of evaporation in salt lagoons.

But on dry land, the white gold needed to be laboriously mined - sometimes at danger to life and limb. Enormous power and lavish wealth developed in the few privileged areas where salt production flourished. In its narrative structure the aim of the film is to link the historical aspects of salt production at various locations. The three principal aspects - nature - man - civilization - are intertwined to form the main thread of the film. Even today, the Sahara is full of miracles.

Until way into the 20th century, vast areas remained unexplored. In the early thirties, the Austrian-Hungarian adventurer Ladislaus E. The desert explorer had stumbled upon one of the trickiest riddles of climate history. Following his footsteps, Schlamberger searched for evidence from the most thrilling chapter in the Sahara's natural history. This film series takes a new look at three rivers that for centuries have shaped the people and landscapes at the heart of Europe and yet which outside of their local regions are often little known.

On their banks are unique technological marvels and grand cultural monuments. Three times this cinematic journey goes from source to mouth, showing in the process how each river has its own unique character. This documentary series combines stunning landscape scenes shot on the water, on land and in the air, with river tales told in a lively fashion - historic and modern, amazing and surprising. A programme looking at people who want to emigrate to Russia because they are scared by the cultural changes underway in Europe. They see Putin as the saviour of the Western World and are convinced that the next few years will see civil war break out in Europe.

How have the lives of the people in Russia changed since? This documentary gives people who experienced the end of the Soviet Union a voice: passionate communists for whom a world came to an end; dissidents who fought for democracy. Round is not always round. Starting from the dawn of history, the dumpling has conquered almost all of Europe and the wider world beyond.

Every region and every epoch in which this nutritious and tasty round delicacy has been eaten, has contributed to the variety of dumplings available today. The many dozens of dumpling creations give an insight into the history of this high calorie food, full of secrets, stories and anecdotes, and its development up to the present day. The rolling hills and lush green landscape of the Austrian province of Styria offer two culinary treasures of international significance.

A culinary tidbit of the special kind introducing stunning landscapes, local people, their culture and traditions. The Morava river with its forests is one of the most beautiful and ecologically valuable riverscapes featuring the richest biodiversity in all of Central Europe. Like a green ribbon, the riverine forests of the Morava - together with those of the Danube and the Dyje - link the Alps with the Carpathians, forming a bridge between Eastern and Central Europe. The infl uence of the Pannonian climate with its hot and dry summers combines with the slowly receding high waters to form a mosaic of extremely different habitats: moist meadows lie close to sand dunes, riverine forests alternate with dry primeval oak forests.

This enormous diversity of habitats creates a refuge for animal and plant species, a specifi c composition that cannot be found in any other place. Four years ago a group of zoologists ventured out to indulge into a truly crazy adventure. Their ambition: to show a flock of bald ibises, birds that have been pushed over the brink by hunting and habitat destruction and only survived in zoos, how to fly to their winter quarters on their original seasonal migration routes.

They accompanied the animals with lightweight airplanes from Austria to Italy - a chaotic event full of mishaps and some successes. But now it appears as though their dreams are about to come true: the comeback of a bird that went extinct in Europe in the Middle Ages. In the previous year two bald ibises managed to fly back to Austria without guidance.

Now, for the fi fth time, human foster parents - 16 people from 4 nations - will once again lead the way for young ibises in completely novel paraplanes covering a distance of kilometres within three weeks. This documentary takes us on a thrilling and humorous adventure introducing us to a very special family consisting of birds and humans. The history of the development of the most powerful mountain range in Europe that attracts more than 45 million tourists every year was not well researched until fairly recently. Using lavish computer animation, this production relates the astonishing genesis of the Alps - the slow, gigantic transformation from an ancient land-locked sea into one of the most majestic mountainous regions of the earth.

This documentary accompanies rescue and police pilots on their daily operations throughout the year. Together with a team of emergency doctors, they tend to the injured in remote mountain villages, save them from steep mountainsides, and fly them to hospitals. When mountain climbers are in danger, the rescue pilots move into action - fast. As in the case of avalanche when every second counts and can mean the difference between life and death to the trapped victims. The bodies of those who cannot be saved still need to be recovered, which is also part of a rescue pilot's work.

Their missions are frequently carried out under unfavorable and even dangerous conditions. However, wind, fog, snow, and the black of night do not keep these pilots from saving lives. Top concentration, courage, and experience are required for the job; and these kings of the air philosophize about their most dangerous maneuvers, their own limits, heroism, and the constant and very real fear of crashing.

What 50 years ago was a symbol of economic advancement is today an expression of personality, or a kind of substitute metal dog. With the aid of archival footage and the reminiscences of former drivers and Puch collectors the film evokes a compelling sense of nostalgia. The Chinese Wall, Japanese palaces, Arabic highrisers, Persian residential courtyards, African mosques and European timbered houses - they all are built with clay.

However the material itself had fallen out of fashion for quite a while. But now, the movement towards more sustainability in almost all areas of life has boosted interest in lay immensely. Architects, designers and even. A film about a very special construction material. How were Beethoven's orchestral works performed in his lifetime, and what differences are there to today's practice? Based on numerous anecdotes and descriptions of the performances of Beethoven's works, a picture is painted of the musical life of Vienna at the beginning of the 19th century.

Less than an hour's drive south of Hungary's capital Budapest, Central Europe's last and only wandering sand dunes surprise the traveller. They are in continuous motion, shaping a landscape one would only expect in Africa. The Puszta is home to a unique wildlife community including wolves, steppe polecats, flocks of great bustards and scores of other exotic birds. The pumpkin as a cultivated plant comes in a very special quality.

From a botanical point of view, it is the world's largest berry. Through hundreds of years of cultivation, many different forms and varieties have evolved. Today, the pumpkin has turned into an object of cult. Many myths, rites and religions, who have survived through the millenniums, refer to it. The famous paintings of Rubens and Belotto are turned into a three-dimensional experience, so that the viewer feels almost a part of the interplay between farmers and bankers, between reasons of state and a Baroque lust for life. In addition to depicting personal stories and important moments in European history, Prince Hans Adam II gives exclusive insights into the life of his family.

The beauty of nature's colors only becomes fully visible in sunlight, whether it is the splendid miracle of the rainbow or its various different forms in nature; none of the colors is a coincidence - not the green of the leaves, nor the red of blood or the deep black of space.

The film gives an overview of the fascinating world of color in all its different manifestations; a journey from inorganic nature to plants, animals and to people. In the light of the sun all colors are contained. How is this possible? In wildlife and nature colors are messages: flowers, for instance, show insects the way to the nectar and thus to the stamens that load them with pollen and animals use colors as bait, as camouflage or to ward off enemies.

Why does this communication works? This documentary tries to explain these questions with all new technology and breathtaking images. During this time, he provided a first glimpse into the daily routine of the Vatican, a mystery wrapped in an enigma which no one knows better than he. The film also portrays the organization and internal structures of the Vatican, presents its peculiarities and shows numerous locations which have never been allowed to be filmed before. This film takes a look at the various ways poisons have been used throughout history, using dramatic reconstructions of some of the most infamous poisonings.

But the film doesn't stop there. Using advanced computer animation, we travel inside the bodies of a victim of the Borgias, as well as Cleopatra, Hannibal, Socrates, Emperor Leopold and a host of other unfortunate victims, to witness from the inside how they died. The film follows humanity's macabre search over thousands of years for the perfect poison. A poisoner needs a poison that is tasteless and colorless, and therefore won't be noticed by the victim.

It needs to work in low doses, so a poisoner doesn't have to feed his victim large quantities. And it needs to be reliably and quickly lethal. Finally, it needs to be undetectable after the event, so the poisoner leaves no trail of guilt. In fact, for preference it should mimic the symptoms of a disease, so no-one even suspects poisoning.

Not surprisingly, such a perfect poison is not easy to find or make, and the search has occupied some of humanity's finest minds. This series presents artists, their homelands and the places of their childhoods. What became of their childhood friends and what has changed in the place where they were born? Films and photos of the artists' families are as much a part of this series as the many memories with friends and witnesses to their childhoods.

Kumbh Mela, the festival of the pitcher, is the largest of the Hindu religion's festivals. It takes place every twelve years - according to the cycle of Jupiter around the sun - in four different locations in India. Sadhus, holy Indian monks, come together from every corner of India to take part in the ritual ablutions.

For many Hindu orders, the Kumbh Mela is also where they inaugurate and accept students into their communities. This documentary accompanies two practising Hindus, Swami Maheshwarananda, who has lived in Austria for many years, and Lisa Wolf, a native of Vienna, to the festival of the pitcher. The Pielach, with a length of While the valley of the Pielach was settled by mammoth hunters as early as the ancient Stone Age, Celts and Romans left their traces later. The river is one of the last spawning waters of Huchen, a relative of the trout.

Measuring up to two meters, the Huchen feels very much at home in the tranquil Pielach. Fiery explosions flash across the night sky, while a thunderous rumbling accompanied by symphonic music leaves those watching struck with amazement. The work of master pyrotechnicians is an art. The planning, construction and choreography with music, as well as the organisation and design must all function precisely, if the audience is to be carried away. Pyrotechnician Christian Czech has reached the top of the profession: all over the world he creates fireworks displays with increasingly complex scenarios and scripts.

A look behind the scenes at the day to day work of these directors of fire. Athens is not only the setting of his crime novels. The Istanbul-born author has lived in the Greekmetropolis for around 40 years. The documentarypresents the life and works of the writer, screenwriterand translator and, against the backdropof the current Greek debt crisis, undertakes acinematic journey through Athens along thecity's oldest metro line. It is like a journey through 3, years of Europeanhistory. The explosive social situation inAthens due to the country's dramatic debt crisisis a major theme of the film.

Peppercorns are hot stuff - not only inside. The history of pepper is inextricably woven into wars and cruel personal histories, breath-taking careers and speculations. Columbus had set out to discover India, the land where the pepper grows - and found America. The history of pepper also reflects colonialism at its most cruel. Is pepper thus a substance of nightmares? Not at all. Or, at least, not only. Sangalaki Island, situated in the Indonesian part of the Celebes Sea, with its colourful coral reefs seems to be paradise on earth.

But predators like monitor lizards and sea eagles are lurking around every corner and the tiny turtle hatchlings on their way from the nest to the beach are a welcome variety on their menu. However, only on Sangalaki the turtles are safe from their principal predator - man. At almost all the other islands of the Celebes Sea employees of Indonesian merchants arrive every morning to plunder all of the turtle nests.

Turtle eggs are considered a delicacy in wide areas of Asia. The former front and supply lines have become paths of peace. This documentary brings to life the story of this region - taking us on a journey along former communication trenches, caverns and troop positions, where today hikers and mountain climbers from all over the world enjoy peace and freedom. A dairymaid in Styria, a sheep farmer in Eastern Tyrol and a shepard in Vorarlberg offer insight into a life that is characterised through beautiful scenery as well as through a culture immensely rich in traditions.

Not only does the spectacular cattle drive up to the Lechtaler Alps, when animals have to make it across a ridge meters above sea level, impress the spectator. In addition to that, it is the newfound appreciation of the alp as a vacationing place that captures the attention. For example, the rustic huts of Oberstalleralm in Eastern Tyrol are completely booked throughout the year , despite the fact that there are no professional feel goodanimators on hand but the main attractions are comprised of a simple wood stove, running water and fresh milk.

Maria Magdalena Koller shows life as it is on the Alp, one of the most traditional ways of living in Austria - unfolding within the breathtakingly impressive theatre of the Austrian mountains. But is this the whole truth? Was she the person propaganda has painted? Or was her private side as extraordinary as new discoveries show? Her name sums up a century of bourgeois economic progress and imperialism - the zeitgeist of the Industrial Revolution.

But was she a queen for the people? Did she alleviate the hunger and misery of the working classes? New documents show that this queen had a darker side. While millions of her subjects died or emigrated during the famines of the s, it took five murders to open her mind; she then donated 15 percent of the annual royal allowance to the poor.

With new access to her diaries and letters we discover a complex personality: a queen who struggled with her political role and her private power - a fun-loving hedonist who appreciated sensual love as well as the presence of attractive men. This is a Victoria full of contradictions. A woman who seeks her own role while breaking the codes of the court and the conventions of her time. The secrets of a sovereign who is still revered as a 'National Treasure' of the once largest empire on earth.

Paraguayans are thoroughly positive and cooperative people. With this affirmative outlook on life, they have survived the highs and lows of the country's different forms of government. The serenity with which the people face even the most precarious situation is astounding and something not often seen among the peoples of the world. Paracelsus - a philosopher, physician, alchemist and field researcher of traditional European folk medicine. Paracelsus rejected theoretical learning; for him only his experience and the observations he had made on his travels throughout Europe counted.

H is aim was to understand the true nature of man and his relationship to the cosmos, and he sought ways to produce genuinely curative medicines with whose help he hoped to be able to create in man a harmony of body, mind and spirit. Even in his day Paracelsus had discovered man's ability to heal himself. What remains of Paracelsus' holistic view of the world in today's system of medicine? We found people who look to Paracelsus and apply his knowledge of holistic healing in a practical way: anthroposophical physicians, naturopaths, pharmacists and spagyricists, exponents of astromedicine and herbalism as well as representatives of the EU platform for complementary medicine.

Back pain, limb pain and headaches: permanent features of life for millions of people. Contrary to what has long been popular belief, however, chronic pain is not merely a symptom, but a disease in itself. And it is treatable. Und die ist behandelbar. The cookery show that's a little diff erent, theTV-sensation that's a little diff erent: 3 amateurcooks - food critic Florian Holzer, artist ThomasNowak and photographer Ingo Pertramer - decideto buy an organic ox, slaughter it themselves andprocess it within two weeks.

The challenge is to cook a whole ox. From start tofi nish, from head to toe. So the performers buy aliving animal from the green Alps, slaughter it, butcherit and during a two-week open-air cooking-sessionprocess, turn it into durable and appetizingpreserved meat. It's made durable not least to showthat the supermarket shelf isn't a foregone conclusion.

The meat is smoked and dried, but mainlyboiled down - in dozens of diff erent varieties andwith tons of recipes. Classically and through all theworld's cuisines. The idea sounds simple, but it proves to be a raceagainst time, inner resistance, technical problemsand culinary confl icts. In eight episodes, a projectthat was about curing the meat of an animal thatgrew up happily, using classical methods and thebest recipes, turns into the most sensitive cookeryshow in TV history. In the years to approximately 10, Austrian Jews were deported from Vienna to the Belarus capital of Minsk and then on to the National Socialist concentration camp, Maly Trostinez.

Only 20 people survived this horror. Amongst them is now year-old Alfred Seiler who has lived in Florida for many years. Tormented his entire life by the dreadful memories from the past, he embarks on a journey to the former sites of horror in an attempt to finally process the terrible experiences in the NS camp.

Can he banish them once and for all? Water - just a liquid or much more? New analyses of this life giving substance have caused a sensation around the world. Many researchers are convinced that water is capable of storing information and retrieving it. Scientists have found out, for example, that water can store measurable information - even without any contact.

Bacteria can also assess changes in water, a thousand times more precisely than any physical or chemical measuring instruments. The possible applications are innumerable: limitless retention and storage capacity and the key to discovering the origins of life on our planet. One thing is clear - research into water is just at the beginning. It wasn't an isolated case that year. Storms had brought the finest Saharan sand to the Alps - and this, combined with the summer sun, caused the glaciers to begin to melt.

In Tyrol alone the eternal ice gave up 6 bodies, including tourists and mountaineers. He is the oldest preserved mummy in the world - even older than the Egyptian kings. His discovery opened a new door into the past. A scientific sensation and the oldest known criminal case in history - a case that is yet to be solved. Scarcely any other Czech musician lived his life filled on the one hand by such exhilarating successes and on the other by such mean-spirited attacks, animosity and hate as Oskar Nedbal - His artistic and personal fate starts with a dramatic, steep upward trajectory, yet after the turning point this was followed by a free fall ending in suicide.

The moving documentary "Oskar Nedbal - Ups And Downs" follows the real life and works of the musician against the backdrop of historic events in Europe. Despite this, his love for the city of his birth, Istanbul, remains undiminished. In this film the author explains his heartfelt relationship to Istanbul, a city which, more than any other, spans the divide between modern Europe and mystical traditions of the Orient.

He gives exclusive insights into his life and work and leads us through the vibrant and culturally flourishing metropolis on the Bosporus. Europe's countryside is largely shaped by agriculture and by highly specialized, efficient farms. However, in the seventies of the past century, a counter-movement set in: ecological management became a new topic on the agenda.

The film features an organic farm as it traverses the different cycles of the year, its main protagonists being farm animals and pets as well as wild game that regularly visit its surrounding meadows and fields. The film portrays the behavior and peculiarities of the farm's cows, pigs, goats, chickens and ducks.

Rather than presenting any new livestock species or inaccessible corners of the land, this documentary introduces the viewers into a well known world, that still is full of secrets. Three farmers - three countries - one product. How much work goes into the harvesting and selling of one kilogram of wheat for a farmer in Austria, a farmer in Russia and a farmer in the US?

What kind of compensation do they get in return? Although they are located in completely different cultural areas, the farms are comparable in size, income and social structure. When his father was deeply injured by a sniper and his wife was expecting their child, Abdulmajid drew up a plan: he decided to pave his way to Europe with his father before reunifying the family there. But the way to Europe is a treacherous trail. An odyssey and a race against time begin as ISIS is getting closer and closer. Abdulmajid Raslan filmed the most important stations during this exceptional journey and shows a breathtaking report from the perspective of a war refugee.

The Shannon is Ireland's greatest geographical landmark and the longest river in these islands. For kilometers the river carves its way south through the heart of the country almost splitting Ireland intwo. It is both a barrier and highway - a silver ribbon holding back the rugged landscapes of the westfrom the gentler plains to the east. On its journey, the Shannon passes through a huge palette of rural landscapes.

On little known backwaters, Ireland's wild animalsand plants still thrive as almost nowhere else. There is no river on earth where so many dreams were dreamt, where so many dreams came true or fell apart, where the dividing line between life and death is as thin as on the Mississippi - North America's great river.

The Mississippi is the world's third largest river. Since the first human beings set foot on the North-American subcontinent, the face of the river has changed dramatically. This epic film shows the great American river in cinematically beautiful images and emotions. Moving cameras show the endlessness of the land, the impenetrable wilderness and, in stark contrast, the shining steel facades of modern metropolises. The film also reveals a fascinating world inhabited by rare plant and animal wildlife with a distinctly exotic touch. At the same time, it invites us on a journey through history.

In several episodes, with the aid of CGI we travel into the past from characteristic sites. The arid sand deserts of Peru have been preserving mummies and burial artefacts over many millennia. Starting out from these finds, the movie goes in hot pursuit of what happens at and around the excavation sites of Peru. On the one hand there's Peruvian archaeologist Sonia Guillen, who has dedicated her life to the proper scientific investigation of her country's heritage.

Her efforts are frequently frustrated by grave looters: entire villages make their living by digging up ancient burying places to get at artefacts which earn the huaceros a few dollars but which bring enormous wealth to international smuggling networks. Quite often it is the grave robbers who put scientists on the tracks of new discoveries - yet every devastated site is another irredeemable loss of our heritage. The documentary illuminates the criminal entanglements of the international antique market and follows the famous FBI art cops in reconstructing the spectacular robbery of one of the most.

With their "Appeal to Disobedience" the Austrian Priests' Initiative for church reform have caused a great stir among Catholic laity and church authority. There is particularly great support for a priesthood of married men and for female priests. But what does the priests' "disobedience" mean in concrete terms? How does the church define obedience, or in other words, who must a priest obey: the bishop, his own conscience - or God?

The documentary "Obedience" attempts to find answers to these questions and provides an outlook on the consequences of disobedience for the church of the future. Using latest CGI combined with live-action reconstructions, this film follows the journey of a molecule of oxygen, an adventure that takes place over a span of thousands of millions of years. The story begins with the photosynthesis of a bacteria - and in doing so it produces the molecule of oxygen gas.

The way of the oxygen unfolds and at times it is torn apart and becomes part of other molecules. It is involved in the conflagrations that accompanied the death of the dinosaurs after the great asteroid impact, then travels through a human body to combine with haemoglobin in the blood and to take part in chemical reactions in individual cells.
