Macro Worlds

The world of insects is a fascinating parallel world. On the one hand, it is quite similar to ours – from predators to mating rituals – on the other hand it is fundamentally different: insects form states and cannot live at minus degrees due to their physiology (with a few exceptions). The series “Macro Worlds”…

Rewilding

Europe’s nature is subject to dramatic change. On the one hand, biodiversity is sinking, on the other hand there is an impressive comeback in the animal world. The reasons for this are manifold: the EU’s nature conservation policy or the increasing urbanization that creates more space for wild animals in the countryside. But the main…

Wild Castles

Europe’s castles are world-famous – Neuschwanstein, Carcassonne, or the Alhambra. Less known is the animal world around them – and within their walls. Wild Castles takes the viewer on a discovery trip to Europe’s most famous castles and palaces, but discovers more than just the history of the rulers and wars. The series explores the…

Frankenstein’s Legacy – The Genius and Lunacy of Modern Medicine

Medical research has reached a point, where everything seems possible! Miracle-cures promise healing through stem cell- and gene therapy; longevity thanks to cryopreservation and cryogenetics; and even head transplants promise not only healing, but immortality – procedures closer to Science Fiction, than to reality! And everyone happily gobbles it up. The Media advertise the most…

The Pontiff

In 1978, John Paul II became the first non Italian pope in nearly 5 centuries, and at the time, the youngest man to accede to Saint Peter’s throne. To many around the world, he was a truly transformative pope and his popularity is, barely eclipsed today still by that of Pope Francis who canonised him…
