What is the secret of Rembrandt’s inimitable technique? A restorer shows it by means of x-rays and infrared techniques. We will also follow Rembrandt’s footsteps in Leiden and Amsterdam today. We will study Rembrandt’s private life through his paintings: his home, his impressionable youth, his school days, his tutors, his studio, his turbulent love life, and his heyday in Amsterdam. Many of his masterpieces are reviewed in detail, with special attention paid to one of his most renowned works, “The Nightwatch.”

Death’s shadow is hanging down on Earth— the cracked, parched land; wild animals falling dead in their inability to find food; humans struggling and desperately searching for water … even polluted water. In the world, Kenya is perhaps the place that has incurred the most damages from climate change. The country has experienced five years of devastating droughts, a catastrophe that has caused ecosystems to shrivel up and animals & humans to die from thirst. Kenya’s paradise, that mystical land with its primeval natural surroundings, is disappearing … and now it is the epitome of despair. But Kenya’s crisis cannot be blamed on climate change alone. Its current environmental disaster is also partially man-made.

Korea is the only divided country in the world. After the Korean War (June 25, 1950– July 27, 1953), South Korea and North Korea established a border that cut the Korean peninsula roughly in half. Stretching for two kilometers on either side of this border is the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). In the past half century, the Korean DMZ has been a deadly place for humans, making habitation impossible. Only around the village of Panmunjeom and the Dong Bukbu Line have there been regular incursions by people. The natural isolation of the DMZ has created an involuntary park, now recognized as one of the most well preserved areas of temperate habitat in the world. Several endangered animal and planet species now exist among the heavily fortified fences, landmines, and listening posts. These include the extremely rare Red-Crowned Crane (a staple of Asian art) and the White-Naped Crane as well as the extremely rare Korean Tiger, Amur Leopard, and Asiatic Black Bear. Ecologists have identified some 2,900 plant species, 70 types of mammals, and 320 kinds of birds within the narrow buffer zone. Additional surveys are now being conducted throughout the region.

South America is host to more than half of all of the world’s known species. In this program we explore the diversity of South America’s wildlife, from the snow-topped peaks of the Andes to the humid tropical rainforests of the Amazon. Join us for an incredible journey into one of the Earth’s most diverse and challenging environments! Episode 1: The Amazon: River of the Sun At the equator, the sun rises over the greatest rainforest on earth: the Amazon. Here 1,000 rivers flow, merging into the giant Amazon River, the largest on Earth. This vast river system receives 20% of all of the fresh water in the world, and is home to a wide diversity of species—the bizarre, the beautiful, the iconic, and the obscure. This great diversity of life is the result of the intense heat of the equatorial sun and the abundant, life-giving rains. Portraying both the vastness and the detail of Amazonia, The Amazon: River of the Sun is an unforgettable journey into an unimaginable place. Episode 2: Paradox of the Andes The Andean cordillera is a unique environment where snow-capped mountains coexist with their jungle-covered flanks. Here, where the sun burns at its most intense, the diversity of microclimates accelerates the pace of evolution. Rain-soaked jungles coexist with arid altiplanos. The intense heat of the lowlands quickly gives way to the bitter cold of higher elevations. There are no annual seasons at the equator, but in the high Andes every day can be like summer and every night like winter. • The ultimate home theater experience! • Each DVD is transferred from the original 65mm IMAX production. • 1920 x 1080p full resolution high definition picture with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound.

The land of Tibet is one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. Nestled between the towering peaks of the Himalayas and the barren starkness of the Gobi desert, it is a mysterious place whose ancient culture is still relatively unknown. In this program we explore the land and people of Tibet, its ancient customs, and its mysterious past as we journey across one of the world’s most fascinating landscapes. Episode 1: The Last Salt Caravan The Last Salt Caravan follows the ancient trade route that connected Tibet with China. Sometimes referred to as the “Southern Silk Road,” this ancient trade route stretched from the province of Yunnan deep into the mountains of Tibet. For 2,000 years it was the principal route for the exchange of tea and grains, with the pink salt of the Himalayas being perhaps the most famous export. Filmed here for the first time, this ancient route offers an unprecedented look into the soul of this ancient land. Episode 2: Guge: The Lost Kingdom of Tibet

In the barren landscape of remote western Tibet lie the ruins of the mysterious kingdom of Guge. Located on the ridge of the roof of the world, this extraordinary civilization—an amalgam of Christian and Himalayan Buddhist civilization—flourished for over 900 years, from the ninth through the seventeenth centuries, before vanishing mysteriously without a trace in 1630. Explore the recent discoveries that finally may unlock the enigma of the Kingdom of Guge, and why it disappeared almost 400 years ago. • The ultimate home theater experience! • Each DVD is transferred from the original 65mm IMAX production. • 1920 x 1080p full resolution high definition picture with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound.

The forests of Asia are the largest contiguous forests in the world, and cover an area of millions of square miles. From the foothills of the Himalayas, they extend westward to the Japanese islands. They include the vast Siberian Taiga, and extend southward to the temperate forests of central China and India. This region is characterized by extremes of temperature and precipitation, and is home to a broad array of wildlife including such rare species as the snow leopard, the Siberian tiger, and Lake Baikal’s freshwater seals. In this program we examine the forests of Asia and the wildlife they contain. Episode 1: Creatures of the Thaw All over Northern Asia, in the few short weeks of the spring thaw, nature comes alive as the freshwater that has been locked up in snow and ice is released. Along the shores of Lake Baikal, the planet’s only freshwater seals give birth to their pups. Along the riverbanks, Japanese cranes forage amidst the stubble of the autumn harvest. As spring turns to summer, animal and plant life explodes in Asia’s lakes, rivers, and marshes as a new cycle of life matures in nature’s unceasing rhythm. Episode 2: At the Edge: Life at the Vertical Limit Winter is freezing and bleak in the Himalayas. The terrain is largely vertical, with large extremes in temperature as the elevation rises. Few plants can grow here. At 15,000 feet, the vertical limit for most wildlife, there is only half the oxygen available at sea level. In this wild and inhospitable terrain, Bharal, the rare blue sheep of the Himalayas, forage for food while a snow leopard carefully stalks a straggler … just another day in the long winter of the Himalayas. Episode 3: A Forest for All Seasons The temperate forests of Asia occupy the zones between the coniferous forests of Siberia and the rainforests of South Asia. Stretching in a band from the foothills of the Himalayas all the way to the Japanese islands, they are largely deciduous. Here, plants and animals have to find a way to live with both heat and cold, adapting their lives to the cycle of the four seasons.

Unsolved Mysteries: Ancient Secrets explores some of the enduring mysteries of human history and reveals startling new discoveries of ancient civilizations and explorers. Who really discovered America? What happened to the ancient Mayans and what warnings does their disappearance have for our own civilization? Did ancient Christians really travel the Silk Road and create a secret kingdom in Tibet? Episode 1: Buddha on the Silk Road In 1907 explorers discovered a vast treasure of ancient scrolls, some of which were Christian, dating from the seventh century. The “Jesus Sutras” are Chinese accounts of the life and teachings of Jesus. In this documentary we follow the ancient route taken by early Christians as they traveled along the Silk Road, a collection of routes snaking across Eurasia. What happened to these ancient Christians of Asia, and what influence did they have on Indian and Chinese cultures? Episode 2: Lost Worlds Deep in the jungles of Guatemala a black jaguar prowls the ruins of Tikal, a Mayan city that has lain abandoned for a thousand years. Narrated by Harrison Ford, this program explores what happened to the ancient Mayans and what their fate tells us about our own cities and our own civilization. Episode 3: Emperor of the Seas

Between 1405 and 1433, the Ming government of China sponsored a series of seven naval expeditions led by Admiral Zheng He. With as many as 300 ships and 28,000 crewmen, Zheng He’s ships roamed far and wide across the planet, traveling to Southeast Asia, the Persian Gulf, circumnavigating Africa, and exploring both the western hemisphere and the Arctic and Antarctic coasts. Is it possible that Zheng He’s ships set foot in the Americas eight decades before Columbus?
