User reviews 4 Review. Top review. More than a climbing film. While delivering everything you'd expect from a contemporary climbing movie - vivid first-person-pov, breathtaking vista, vertigo-inducing shots The difference came only with the problems the production ran into - while originally planned as a simple climbing flick, to be finished in a few weeks, in the end they had gone to Patagonia 3 times, had filmed 2 summit climbs and many more tries, had to weather a veritable shitstorm from large parts of the climbers community - and they used all this material to shed some light on the background, the philosophy, the frustrations of expedition climbing and so on.
So this became a much richer and interesting project, even if the budget must have exploded. And to top that, they also put in a historical flashback, some interviews or contributions Reinhold Messner and Jim Bridwell amongst others and, last but not least, portraits of the camera team and their struggles to catch David Lama's final climb which would be worth a documentation of its own.
Overall, recommended for everyone with even a slight interest in mountaineering or climbing, and much more interesting than a simple sports movie as planned would be. IndustriousAngel Mar 28, Details Edit. Release date March 13, Germany. English Spanish German Italian.

During the Exodus, one of the most famous miracles of the Old Testament took place. More than years have passed since Moses led two million Israelites across the Red Sea and out of the bondage of Egypt. Christians, Jews, and Muslims throughout the world still embrace the accounts of this remarkable event. It is an epic that so fascinated Hollywood director Cecil B.
A journey that reveals physical evidence for the Exodus including: the remains of year old Hebrew settlements in Egypt's Nile Delta; Egyptian records of the Israelites bondage under Pharaoh; the precise route they may have followed to freedom; their crossing site on the shore of the Red Sea; and the location of Mt. Nearly everyone has seen the vivid newsreel footage of the Hindenburg disaster, when Germany's pride, the greatest airship ever flown, burst into flames while attempting to land in New Jersey after a transatlantic crossing in And while the Hindenburg's fiery end could not have been more public, the cause of the disaster has always the subject of much speculation, with theories ranging from sabotage to the more mundane explanation of static electricity igniting the highly flammable hydrogen gas used to lift the foot-long dirigible.
In this captivating video from National Geographic, archival films tell the story of the age of airships, and gorgeously shot modern footage takes the viewer inside the enormous airship hangar, which still stands today and is used as a warehouse at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Interviews with Hindenburg crew members who survived the disaster provide vivid testimony about the airship's fiery demise, and a former NASA engineer who has long been fascinated by the Hindenburg provides intriguing conclusions about how the fire spread so quickly.
The answers given by modern science indicate that overlooked features of the Hindenburg's construction contributed to its dramatic end, which also marked the end of the luxurious and amazing era of airship travel.

The mission is to rendezvous and dock with the Agena space module , a critical step in reaching the moon. Because of problems with the spacecraft control system, the crew was forced to undock after approximately 30 min. The spacecraft-target vehicle combination had begun to encounter increasing yaw and roll rates. The crew regained control of their spacecraft by using the reentry control system, which prompted an early landing in a secondary landing area in the Pacific.
No EVA was performed. The failure was caused by an electrical short in control system. Docking and re-rendezvous secondary objectives were not achieved due to the shortened mission. Every year, hundreds of people are killed by elephants and the number of casualties keeps rising. We travel to India to find out why elephants, the world's favorite circus act, are becoming such a deadly problem. They are some of the biggest pyramids on the planet, millions of tons of stone and earth towering above the landscape in a display of massive wealth and power.
But it wasn't the pharaohs that built these pyramids. The identities of its founders, the language they spoke and even the original name of the city are all unknown. It was assumed to have been a peaceful, utopian society, but the latest discoveries are revealing a much darker scenario. Through historical recreations and spectacular CGI, Pyramids of Death brings the world of these ancient people to life, from their remarkable feats of construction and engineering to their grisly methods of human sacrifice.
Follow the investigation step by step and unravel the mysteries surrounding the rise and fall of one of the ancient world's most powerful and least understood civilizations. From the alleged sighting in to the incident at Roswell, N. An international team of researchers has uncovered one of the most sensational fossil finds in living memory: the well-preserved skull of a chimp-size animal that doesn't fit any known species.
It was almost certainly a hominid — a member of a subdivision of the primate family whose only living representative is modern man. And it has left scientists gasping with astonishment for several reasons. To start with, it is nearly 7 million years old — a million years more ancient than the previous record holder.
It almost certainly dates from very near that crucial moment in prehistory when hominids began to tread an evolutionary path that diverged from that of chimps, our closest living relatives. Dino Autopsy is a discovery that promises to transform what scientists believe about the dinosaur … a virtually intact dino mummy. Nearly everything we know of dinosaurs comes from bones and teeth, usually the only tissue durable enough to fossilize.
The conditions that preserved this extraordinary mummy were one in a million, and early examination offers never-before-seen details of what they really looked like, as well as clues to how they moved and lived.
The paleontologists involved already believe that this could prove to be one of the most important dinosaur discoveries of all time. Fossilised skin and tendons have allowed us to reconstruct major muscle sizes, with many body parts offering a tantalising glimpse of a 3-D dinosaur. The scan of the 3,kg body was of the one of the largest CT scans ever undertaken!
In Dino Death Trap head deep into China's Junggar Basin where palaeontologists have uncovered the remains of dinosaurs previously unknown to science in a discovery which could reveal the secrets of dinosaur evolution.
While in Dino Autopsy we get under the skin of a dinosaur with exclusive access to the excavation of one of the most intact dinosaur mummies ever found. In Dino Death Trap, an extraordinary dinosaur find follows a team of palaeontologists in western China as they unearth a virtual black hole in dinosaur evolution. Led by Dr James Clark of George Washington University and Dr Xu Xing of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the team uncovers hundreds of exceptionally preserved dinosaur fossils, including new species that were astonishingly found stacked on top of one another in pits of death in the dry and desolate Junggar Basin.
Preserved for million years, a total of specimens and around 40 different species, including bizarre ancestors of the T-Rex and the triceratops and an ancient crocodilian, were discovered in the pits. Watch in awe as the amazing creatures are digitally brought back to life and we probe the mystery of how these dinosaurs lived and died. It's the world's most intriguing mystery. The mystery of us. How did we get here? And what happened on the journey from ape to man? The trail begins somewhere in Africa.
Here apes first descended from trees and started walking on two legs. Then, astonishing things began to happen. Over the eons, these creatures morphed into a variety of weird human forms. Many lived in the same place at the same time. Some walking apes - including our own species, modern humans - undertook epic migrations out of Africa.
On these journeys, they left evidence of their perilous lives. Super-predators like sabre-toothed cats and giant crocs hunted them. Drought, volcanoes and maybe even other ape-men killed them. To survive, we modern humans became more adaptable, cooperative, and clever. But then something went wrong. Investigators have reached a startling conclusion: around 70 thousand years ago, we almost became extinct.
What happened? How did we survive these threats to become the last walking ape standing, the one species who left the other contenders in the dust, seized the planet, and declared it our own? This new programme touches upon two astounding discoveries. The first just came to light on the remote Indonesian island of Flores.
Here, investigators find an entirely new kind of human half our height - nicknamed the 'Hobbit'. It's one of the biggest finds in the last fifty years. This new species may force a rewrite of the human story. At the bottom of Africa, another bone detective finds some very different fossils. These are not the bones of a dwarf. They are the bones of an ancient giant - nicknamed 'Goliath'. For decades, the best minds in science studied fossils and concluded that human evolution was a straightforward story: millions of years ago somewhere in Africa, one of our ape ancestors came down from the trees.
He picked up the genetic baton that wo. Without the moon in its regular orbit around the planet, would life exist on Earth? Or would the climate teeter between cataclysmic extremes? Today, the moon shines brightly in the night sky from about a quarter of a million miles away. When it first formed though, it was 15 times closer to Earth and its gravity had a tremendous influence on the planet. Slowly drifting further away from Earth, the moon has reshaped the world.
It created seasons, the hour day, tides and may have even influenced the evolution of life here on Earth. The invasion of Normandy on June 6, -- D-Day -- opened a second Allied front, and the Allies began overtaking a host of German positions; Paris was liberated on August 25; Romania and Bulgaria surrendered in quick succession.
But the Nazis did not intend to go down without a fight -- and without inflicting as much damage as possible on the Allies. To do so, they employed or planned to employ an increasingly deadly array of military weapons -- from ballistic missiles to rocket planes to, perhaps, the atomic bomb. The British, American, and Russian governments were not content to sit idly by, waiting to be slammed by the advanced technology.
Covert teams of commandos and agents were sent ahead of the front lines and deep into Germany, hunting for both the weapons and the scientists and engineers who'd created them. For British and American operatives, failure was not an option. If they didn't capture the Nazi technology and scientists, agents of the burgeoning Soviet Union might -- and that could spell disaster in a post-war world already feeling the chill of the impending cold war.

On Botswana's Linyanti Plains, a band of brothers reigns amongst the top predators. Three cheetahs: partners since birth, and one of the most efficient hunting forces on the plains. They hunt as a team, with Achilles in front, and Odin and Shiva flanking him on either side. The powerful trio have held their territory for over five years, until one day tragedy strikes. Achilles is killed by a cobra bite, leaving Odin and Shiva to fend for themselves for the first time in their lives.
With the power of three broken they must adapt fast: learning to hunt as a twosome and defend their kills without the help of Achilles. Confounding their efforts is a host of scavenging predators: an injured leopard, a cunning hyena and a devious black backed jackal.
Making matters worse, a lone male cheetah begins to trespass on their land. As the cheetah brothers regain their strength and efficiency, the lone male becomes a major concern. When they eventually corner him, a vicious fight breaks out. But then a remarkable transformation occurs — instead of killing the cheetah, they tolerate him.

There are two strands to this intriguing documentary about the famous bust of the Egyptian queen, which was discovered in by German archaeologist Ludwig Borchardt.
The first is about Borchardt and how he pulled a bit of a swiftie on the Egyptians to get the thing back to Berlin, while the second is about what Nefertiti has been up to lately - being X-rayed and so on in a bid to dispel doubts about her authenticity. The man who connects the strands is Adolf Hitler, who fell in love with the spectacular limestone bust, left, and wanted it to be the centrepiece of a new Egyptian museum in Berlin.
The Egyptian government, having realised what it had lost, had been clamouring for the piece's return but Hitler refused, eventually having it hidden away in a salt mine for protection from Allied bombing raids. Rumours have persisted, however, that the bust was swapped for a fake en route to the mine - hence the high-tech examinations.

New evidence on the fate of the Incas helps to reimagine their tale in this National Geographic presentation. Great Inca Rebellion presents stunning new evidence that is changing what we know about the final days of the Inca Empire.
According to traditional accounts, the mighty Inca were swiftly wiped out by a small band of Spanish conquistadors. But new evidence had been unearthed that supports a different version of the story. Uncovered remains of those who died in battle along with recently discovered documents suggest that even after forming military alliances with thousands of Indian mercenaries, it took the Spanish many years to defeat the Inca Empire.
Brought to life through CGI reconstruction and re-enactments, the untold epic saga of guerilla warfare and rebellion are revealed as National Geographic reveals the truth behind the Incas last stand. Despite the worldwide interest in his life, little is known about Jesus between the ages of 12 and How did he spend his missing years? While his birth, childhood, later years and death are all well documented in the gospels of the New Testament, a question mark continues to hang over how Jesus spent his time between the ages of 12 and This baffling gap spans the period that stretches from his preaching in a temple as a young boy, right up to the point at which, as a grown man, he first met John the Baptist.
Jesus: The Missing Years explores the year gap that incredibly, nobody knows anything about. The debate continues to rage over where the young Christ was during these 'missing years'. Some wild theories have claimed that he traveled far and wide, with India and Tibet being possible destinations.
Others claim it is far more likely that he remained in Nazareth, leading a humble life working as a carpenter. Now, scholars and theologians are using clues from ancient texts to piece together the events of Jesus' young adulthood in an attempt to shed new light on the unknown parts of his life. In the depths of the Black Sea lies a landscape of eternal darkness. With no light and no oxygen in the sea's anoxic layer, no life can survive, except perhaps the ghosts of ancient mariners whose ships foundered thousands of years ago.
Because the environment cannot support the organisms that typically feast on organic materials, such as wood and flesh, there is an extraordinary opportunity for preservation, including shipwrecks and the cargos they carried. In the year , on his third trip to the Black Sea, explorer Dr. Robert Ballard discovered a miraculously well-preserved Byzantine shipwreck, but his team could only take pictures.
Now, Ballard returns with archaeologist Dr. Bridget Buxton and Dr. In , Ballard and the team returned to survey the area for more shipwrecks, and last year began excavations on Sinop D, and Chersonesos A, a 10th-century shipwreck found off southern Crimea at a depth of meters. At Chersonesos A, the team excavated the ship's cargo of nearly jars commonly found at Byzantine sites on the shores of the Black Sea, including Chersonesos. The bright orange color of the nearly 1,year-old jars was completely preserved, to the team's amazement.
From there, the team sailed to the deeper site, Sinop D, which was the focus of the survey. The team hoped to answer questions about the ship's construction, its cargo, and how the anoxic conditions had affected its preservation. Ballard and his team have only two weeks, so they must work in perfect precision on their hunt for the Ghost Ships of the Black Sea. Ballard calls this site "the greatest museum on Earth," but his team of marine archaeologists has only begun to scratch the surface of the Black S.
It is one of the most notorious assassinations in modern history: the murder of the Romanovs, Russia's ruling family. Once the subject of a high-stakes murder investigation, the trail went cold of Soviet rule. Now, the mysterious deaths are fueling a heated battle between forensic scientists, religious leaders, and Russia's political elite.

The stress response: in the beginning it saved our lives, making us run from predators and enabling us to take down prey. So, we're constantly marinating in corrosive hormones triggered by the stress response. Now, scientists are showing just how measurable — and dangerous — prolonged exposure to stress can be. Stanford University neurobiologist, MacArthur "genius" grant recipient, and renowned author Robert Sapolsky reveals new answers to why and how chronic stress is threatening our lives in Killer Stress, a National Geographic Special.
The hour-long co-production of National Geographic Television and Stanford University was produced exclusively for public television. In this revelatory film, discoveries occur in an extraordinary range of places, from baboon troops on the plains of East Africa to the office cubes of government bureaucrats in London to neuroscience labs at the nation's leading research universities. Groundbreaking research reveals surprising facts about the impact of stress on our bodies: how it can shrink our brains, add fat to our bellies and even unravel our chromosomes.
Understanding how stress works can help us figure out ways to combat it and mitigate negative impacts on our health. For over three decades, Robert Sapolsky has been working to advance our understanding of stress — in particular how our social standing our place in various hierarchies can make us more or less susceptible to the damaging effects of stress.
Throughout the film, he weaves the grim realities of the impact of chronic stress with his wry observations about 21st century life.
