    The Ultimate Guide - Mastodons





    Not long ago North America was host to saber tooth cats, camels, mammoths and lions. Among these now seemingly exotic creatures, was the distant relative of the elephant: the mastodon. This story is launched from a backyard pond in Hyde Park, New York, where the most recent mastodon site was discovered. With the cooperation of some of today's leading paleontologists, learn how the mastodon evolved, how it migrated out of Africa and how it survived in the North American forests for roughly 3.7 million years. We'll show how it differed from its more famous cousin, the mammoth and we'll explore the controversy among the major theories explaining how and why this keystone species disappeared.

    Human Sacrifice The Bloodthirsty Gods

    Human Sacrifice The Bloodthirsty Gods

    Human Sacrifice is a brand new three-part series that examines this terrifying practice through the lenses of history, science, forensics, and psychology. How did ancient peoples regard human sacrifice? What were the principal reasons behind it? Was there a common vein leading to it that ran through each religion? And most disturbingly, we’ll explore why human sacrifice seems to be re-appearing, not only in Third World villages, but in industrialized cities around the globe.

    Bermuda Triangle Beneath the Waves

    [​IMG]

    Bermuda Triangle

    Some people believe that the laws of physics don’t apply in the Bermuda Triangle and it is one of only two places in the world where a compass won’t point to true, magnetic north.

    Over the years, hundreds of ships and planes have gone missing in the area of
    the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale. One of the most famous disappearances occurred in December 1945, when Flight 19, consisting of five US Navy bombers, vanished while on a training exercise.

    One explanation for the mysterious disappearance of entire ships could be large pockets of gas which are common on the sea bed in the area. When the gas rises to the surface they dissolve in the water, decreasing the buoyancy of ships and causing them to sink.

    The Riddle of the Dead Sea Scrolls

    [​IMG]

    This video, which is a 1990 documentary from the Discovery Channel, explores the work of Dr. Barbara Thiering, Ph.D., who puts forth the controversial hypothesis that the Scrolls date from the time of Jesus, not the Maccabean period (150 years earlier) as previously thought. She believes that the "Teacher of Righteousness" mentioned in the Scrolls was John the Baptist, and that Jesus may have grown up in the Qumran community. (Opinions of opposing scholars are also presented.)

    She bases this upon what she feels are layers of meaning in the Gospel stories which are really codes referring to various places and to ritual practices of the Qumran sect. She is not claiming that the Qumran sect were Christians per se, but rather, that this is the community where Jesus was raised and trained before he took off on his own ministry.

    Whether or not you agree with Dr. Thiering's theories, you will enjoy the excellent on-site photography of Jerusalem, Qumran, etc., with close-ups of the Scrolls, re-enactments of some of the activities and events of the time, etc.

    The Ultimate Guide: Octopus (1998)

    Eight legs, three hearts, and a wealth of suction cups - the octopus is one of nature's most curious creations. Color-blind, it still can mimic multicolored backgrounds, and even use color to communicate. Shy and retiring, these cephalopods are hard to find and study, but Ultimate Guide: Octopus reveals their secrets, with amazing, up-close footage of a creature that prefers not to be seen.

    as he shows us around his home town, Hong Kong.

    Hong Kong is known as the City of Life - and Jackie Chan is the city's favourite son. Jackie shows us around his hometown - from star ferries where he used to wind down from his gruelling martial arts training to the Hollywood road antique shops he prefers today. This martial arts guru and movie icon jumps naturally into the breakneck pace of life in Hong Kong. This whirlwind tour of the city's skyscrapers, shops and temples will capture the imagination of hardcore Chan fans and simple travel junkies alike. He takes us from a Tai Chi class next to the harbour to a driving tour through the city's Central district. Then it's up the mountain to Victoria Peak and its '$2 million view' - where Jackie balances precariously on the rail, with the sparkling city below.

    Extreme Surfing (2000)

    [​IMG]

    There are only a handful of places on the planet – with names like Jaws, Mavericks and Pipeline – where storms generate waves of monstrous proportions. Only a few people possess the skills and courage to challenge Mother Nature’s raw power and ride these towering walls of water. Some of these challenges are successful, others pay the ultimate price. During this winter, some of the largest waves ever recorded are expected to be produced by the El Nino conditions in the Pacific Ocean. This is the story of a small group of surfers and their quest to ride the largest waves ever.

    Additional Info: Ranger School is built around a simple goal: eradicate the fictional Cortinian army’s drug operations. Standing in for Cortinian territory is the rough terrain surrounding Fort Benning — the mountains of northern Georgia, and the swamps and coast of Florida. Ranger students are presented with a clear mission, but it’s up to them to come up with a plan to execute it.

    Ranger trainees will have to push themselves to the limit in order to accomplish their goal. They’ll spend about 20 hours per day training. Most of the time students will get less than 3.5 hours of sleep a night, all while existing on two, or fewer, meals per day.

    The Lost Temples Of India

    It exploits many of of the annoying clichés you would expect, including repeated references to elephants and a near obsession with the phallic symbolism of the Shivalingam.

    It also plays a bit of a geographic and historical trick on viewers, by starting and ending with the erotic temples at Khajuraho (which it insists are "lost" and "forgotten"), and shots of the Taj Mahal. But in between it is actually mainly about the South: the temples built by Rajaraja Chola, the city/kingdom of Vijayanagar, and the Meenakshi Temple at Madurai. The attempt to link the Hindu temples of Southern India with Khajuraho is nonsensical, but I suppose the producers felt they had to sex it up a bit (elephants alone would be insufficient!).

    Tony Robinson's Romans

    [​IMG]


    Four-part series looking at three Roman Emperors: Caesar (2 episodes), Caligula and Nero.

    Episode 1: Julius Caesar part 1
    Tony Robinson travels to Rome, Egypt, Greece, France and beyond to investigate the epic life and death of the man he calls "one of the most complex, driven people in the whole of human history".

    Episode 2: Julius Caesar Part 2
    Chronicling the latter years of Julius Caesar, when his power stretched far and wide after a string of military victories. Separating fact from fiction, he reveals the global impact of his reign, unearths the truth behind the legendary meeting with Cleopatra, and asks if the ill-fated leader's last words really were 'Et tu, Brute?'.

    Episode 3: Caligula
    A more complex picture of emperor Caligula than the popular image of an increasingly outrageous, power-mad tyrant. Was Caligula truly mad? Overseeing an imperial court rife with paranoia, violence and betrayal, Caligula commanded respect, but never loyalty. It took a series of campaigns against the Barbarians north of the Rhine to get the army on his side and, having won their hearts and minds, he quickly made plans for an invasion of Britain. It's with this aborted campaign that one of the great Caligula legends was born: on the beach of Boulogne he ordered his troops to collect as many sea shells as they could carry back to Rome, before turning around and heading back for home. Rather than an act of bizarre eccentricity, Robinson sees Caligula's actions as a way of humiliating a legion of men too nervous to cross the Channel (then seen as the edge of the world); perhaps even his way of facing down a potential mutiny. Claiming to be a god however, was a different matter and, when he began to poke fun at the head of the Praetorian Guard's effeminate voice, the emperor's days were numbered.

    Code:
    http://hotfile.com/dl/97535109/b2f91e4/TRR20-20s01e0320-20Caligula.avi.html
    
    Episode 4: Nero
    "In the final part of his series, Tony Robinson looks at the most infamous of all the emperors: Nero. A well-connected childhood (Caligula was his uncle), Nero came to power at just 16 years old, and the new emperor was treated like a rock star; a glamorous, young figure cutting a dash through his court. But away from the adulation, his life had taken on all the elements of an OTT soap opera. His mother was found murdered after a rift over a mistress - power was steadily starting to corrupt him, absolutely. As Robinson explains, the great image of Nero, fiddling while Rome burns, was set in motion by resentment following the emperor's decision to impose a fire tax, part of his rebuilding programme after the great fire that destroyed the city. As unrest grew, he looked for a scapegoat, settling on the burgeoning Christian sect. Things came to a head when he set off on an artistic tour of Greece, a folly which appalled the Romans. Coupled with a reluctance to tour military outposts, which angered the generals, and led to rebellions in far flung reaches of the empire, Nero sealed his doom when both Senate and Praetorian Guard turned their backs on him. While not exactly sympathetic, the profile of Nero Robinson presents is one of a peace lover, enlightened art appreciator and dynamic man of the people".
