GoPro: Botafumeiro - Santiago de Compostela Cathedral
 
02:17
The Botafumeiro is one of the most characteristic elements of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ EXPRESS DOCUMENTARIES http://pdoc.es/ExpressPL The first reference to the botafumeiro appears in a marginal note of the Codex Calixtinus, written precisely in the dawn of the XV century. It links it to the grand solemnities celebrated in the interior of the basilica. The botafumeiro is filled with incense and coal and is set in motion by driving a few men who swing it through a pulley system. This runs around the cathedral spreading smoke from the burning purifying and perfuming the interior of the basilica. The censer is used on special dates during the liturgy such as Easter Sunday, Christmas, Pentecost ... With this video we made all the way through the cathedral through a GoPro camera on the top of the botafumeiro, accompanied by a great music that accompanies the movement of large censer. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶EXPRESS DOCUMENTARIES http://pdoc.es/ExpressPL ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc
Secretary Birds of Africa | Nature
 
03:02
The Secretary Bird, or Sagittarius serpentarius, is an outlandish bird that lives in the Shaba Reserve of northern Kenya. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! Despite their appearance, these are birds of prey and they are very specialized hunters. Rain is scarce in Shaba, but when it does come the savannah is quickly transformed. What was yellow turns green and there is much to be done. The first thing is to gather building materials for a new home. These elegant birds will gather sticks to build their nests…While they do work together, gathering materials is primarily the male’s responsibility. He collects them and carries them over… and she very lovingly arranges them. It’s mating season, and time to turn on the charm. Soaring high in undulating flight, the male and the female capture each other’s hearts. They build an enormous nest high in an Acacia tree. Anyone can see how they go about this, but they are more reserved about doing their thing. No one has ever seen them in the act of mating. What we do know is that the female lays no more than three eggs and if all three of them hatch it will be a big family of secretaries. And if they’re going to raise healthy offspring they will need nourishment. Hunting insects together is a pleasant activity for the couple, but as birds of prey they won’t pass up a small feline or careless rodent that crosses their path. This plumed glider knows very well what he is looking for. The savannah is a virtual supermarket. Peck on, and don’t forget to do your exercises... There’s room for everyone. The kite is a “cousin” of the secretary bird, a small but muscular relative who needs no invitation to sit himself down at the table.

Indonesia. Floating Houses | Tribes & Ethnic Groups
 
04:20
At dusk, the boats that have been out hunting come together again. These apparently fragile floating houses are made of wood from the Api tree, and are incredibly resistant, able to withstand an entire lifetime on the sea. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary. "Indonesia.The Ghosts of Sulawesi" http://pdoc.es/SulawesiPL There is virtually no space in which to move, so much so that the people have stunted legs. The kitchen is in the stern, in the middle the bedrooms and the larder, and in the prow the living room. Though it would seem impossible, an entire family of five members can live on a single boat. They may have very little living space, but the world that surrounds them is in constant change and movement, is open and free. When a child comes into the world, its father throws it into the water to initiate it into this marine environment. At four years old, the child already knows how to manoeuvre the leppa, and by the time they are seven they know all the fishing techniques. They live in such close contact with the sea that when they are born they are given names that describe the surroundings at the time of their birth. Here we find names such as ‘bird alighting on a palm trees that has fallen into the water’, ‘three black clouds in the sky’; or ‘eastern storm with strong winds’. The day is coming to an end in the calm waters of the gulf of Tomini , it is time for the Bajau to take their boats alongside the mangrove swamps, where they will be protected. These nomads of the sea, like the immense majority of traditional communities on this earth, are facing immense, profound changes. Little by little, they are disappearing in silence, and with them centuries of wisdom, forged and practiced over time. There is a Bajau saying that reads: “ We conserve only what we love, we love only what we understand, and we understand only what we have been taught.” ▶ SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶ FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶ TRIBES DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlTribes ▶ FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶ TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶ TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc
Sparrowhawk Documentary
 
02:25
The sparrowhawk launches breathtaking attacks, catching its victims by surprise. Small forest birds are forever nervous: they know that lurking among the forest thickets there is an enemy that takes no prisoners. This young sparrowhawk was expelled from its parents’ territory in early autumn. During its first winter, it will travel considerable distances in search of areas of the forest with sufficient hunting; there it will put into practice techniques it learned from its parents. Perched silently on the branches that offer the greatest visibility, this forest pirate strategically searches for the right victim. Lack of experience means its success rate is not yet very high, and it fails often. Many sparrowhawks do not survive their first winter: weakened by long and fruitless pursuits they become easy prey for other predators. So this young hawk cannot afford the slightest error. It crosses the clearing low and fast, pouncing on its prey of choice which has no chance to react. After a lightning attack, the wary hawk kills his victim quickly to avoid drawing attention to itself; its trophy is then taken to its habitual feeding station.
Fiddler Crab. Land of Dragons | Nature - Planet Doc Full Documentaries

SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! Documentary “Land of Dragons” | http://bit.ly/LDragons The fiddler crab is another species that live in the archipelago. It’s name comes from it’s enormous claws, almost equal in size as the rest of its body. This outsized claw serves two basic functions: to mark his territory, and attract the females. To do this, the males displays it, with energetic movements. The mud of the mangrove swamps is a source of food. To extract the nutritious substances it contains, the crab scoops it up with its claws, and transfers it to a special organ opposite its mouth. The male can only use one of his claws. The other is so big that it is useless for collecting mud. The females don’t have this problem. The mangrove forest is home to a number of species of fiddler crabs, but the females have no problem identifying potential mates. Each species is of a different colour, and performs a different courting dance, which is just as well with so many suitors together. The enormous number of crabs limits the size of their territories, and increases competition. With so many suitors together, it is not long before a fight breaks out. During the mating season, these fierce clashes will be often repeated among all the species of crabs that live in the mangrove forest.

Tarahumara Indians. Mexico | Tribes - Planet Doc Full Documentaries
 
03:13
In northwest Mexico, the Tarahumara Indians, have lived for centuries. They are a very hospitable tribe. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! Raramuri means “those with light feet”. They have always liked to run, and they still do; that’s why the men play rarajipo. To play this game they kick a small ball with the top of their feet as they run along a course. They kick a ball called the komakali forcefully with the tops of their feet. Each team supports its favourite player. They follow him throughout the race, providing water, food and encouragement. The teams bet, and the winner is whoever makes it to the finish line, which may be 60 to 120 miles from the start, but that’s no big deal for these Indians with light feet… Their ancestors came across the Bering Strait from Asia. The family is very important to them because it’s the basic social unit that they depend on for their well-being, such as it is. They are strong people, accustomed to live with very little, and they value people more than things. The most experienced man in the village is the siríame, or chief. He is elected in a way that can’t be rigged, by the public raising of hands. Every Sunday he gives a public talk and the people come to him to solve community problems. Like their ancestors, they grow corn. They have few resources but they do have their own philosophy: They entrust their children with responsibilities from a very early age; they never scold them and they teach them to make decisions for themselves. They have corn and a few animals. Scarcity leads to illness, but despite his appearance this boy is being treated, says the village doctor, an affable man named Cherokee. The Raramuri marry very young, from the age of sixteen. The women call all their children by the same name: Dánala. ▶ SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶ FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶ TRIBES DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlTribes ▶ FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶ TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶ TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! Documentary “Land of Dragons” | http://bit.ly/LDragons The mudskipper is one of the few species of fish in the world capable of living out of the water. This amazing ability means it can feed on the tiny algae, crustaceans and worms which live among the mangroves. And it comes out of the water not just to get food. Courtship also takes place on land. The male shows off his dorsal fin to the females. As they don’t have legs, the mudskippers use their pectoral fins to propel themselves along. To breathe, they use a system similar to the crabs: they retain water in their gills. When they ingest food, they have to expel this water, so the mudskippers constantly need to replenish their reserves. This also keeps their skin wet, this is very important, because that is another way in which they absorb oxygen.

Angkor Wat. The Macro-City of Cambodia | History Documentary

A documentary about angkor wat, the macro-city of cambodia, an ancient temple visited every day by million of tourist anxious to meet about its history. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ EXPRESS DOCUMENTARIES http://pdoc.es/ExpressPL One of the most visited monuments of Cambodia, whose enigmatic history has been forgotten.  Its inhabitants abandoned this sacred place overnight. Angkor Wat was a Hindu temple and part of a huge temple complex belonging to the holy city of Angkor, capital of the Khmer empire. This kingdom was born in the ninth century and prospered for over 600 years. It grew in size and its population multiplied at great speed, until suddenly, a city that had grown to almost a million inhabitants, was abandoned. Eventually, it was swallowed up by the dense jungle. Similar in size to metropolitan New York, Angkor is today a set of ruins that is of great interest to historians. The splendour of the Khmer empire was based on water. The plain of Angkor flooded with the monsoons, and a vast network of reservoirs and canals, over 1,000 kilometers in total, was constructed to supply the rice fields and fill reservoirs. But in order to create this macro-city, thousands of trees were cut down, which led to its ruin: without trees, the rain-cycle broke down, the rains devastated crops, and the canals collapsed. Finally, fleeing was the only solution for inhabitants desperate to survive at all costs. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶EXPRESS DOCUMENTARIES http://pdoc.es/ExpressPL ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

Over time our forefathers left on the rocks a complete collection of images which depict their way of life and their beliefs. They painted the animals they hunted or fished so the spirits would help them capture them. In this way we know to what extent these animals are the same ones as those we eat today: barramundi fish, long-necked tortoises, kangaroos, crocodiles, wallabies. The paintings in some of the most inaccessible places were made by the "mimis", the lesser spirits which are the cause of everything that happens to us, good or bad. On these ancient rocks they also drew figures of the men of that time, warriors and hunters, who used the same spears and harpoons as we do now".

Falcon | Deadly Hunter
 
02:14
The peregrine falcon is deadly hunter. It usually attacks from a great height, diving vertically at vertiginous speeds. The falcon is the fastest animal on planet Earth. In dizzying chases that exceed 300km/h the falcon literally sweeps its prey out of the skies. Nothing goes unnoticed by the extraordinary eyesight of this “heavenly peregrine”, which takes full advantage of any open space. Birds on the wing become the object of its well-planned aerial ambushes. But on this occasion, it has detected a target on its perch, so flies low and out of view, picking up speed without betraying its presence until as close as possible. With a cruising speed of over 100km/h, any victim that senses danger and tries to escape will do so too late: a final sprint, and the pigeon is taken with no resistance.

Through painting, the past and the present come together, and men have contact with the world beyond. Dots, circles, crosses and spirals symbolise places or paths in the dream.

When Australia separated from Gondwanaland, it was like a giant Noah's Ark adrift on the seas, and the animals on it had to adapt in isolation from the rest. The trees also adapted, particularly the eucalyptus tree, which quickly spread. The Koala bear managed the impossible: it adapted to the point where all it eats are eucalyptus leaves. Eucalyptus leaves are poor quality food, indigestible and full of toxins, but the koala has managed to survive on them. Their digestive process is long, and the koalas go about their business without wasting any energy. This is part of their metabolic strategy. They can survive on only 16 ounces of leaves a day. The young koalas suckle in the marsupial bag until they are 6 months old. When they are weaned, they are initiated into the art of leaf eating. After weaning, the young koalas leave their mothers to live on their own in these woodlands.

They get their food from the mud… and it’s their playground as well. The crab picks up chunks of mud with its claws and places them in palps in front of its mouth. The mud is filtered through some fine hairs and… down the hatch! Of course the male can only use one of his claws. The other is so big that it’s worthless for picking up mud. He uses this claw to mark out territory… And why not, to attract female fiddlers. When he wants to impress them he’ll shake his large claw around vigorously. Several species of fiddler crabs coexist in the mangrove swamp. Nevertheless, these ladies have no trouble telling their own gentlemen friends from the others. The female crab accompanies the male crab to his shelter where nobody will bother them while they mate. It’s also common to see two males fighting over a female crab at the border between their territories. So many adoring bachelors, and all of them so virile, can only lead to squabbling. ▶ SUSCRÍBETE | http://bit.ly/PlDoc ▶ DOCUMENTALES COMPLETOS EN ESPAÑOL | http://bit.ly/DocCompletos ▶ ANIMALES SALVAJES | http://bit.ly/PlAnimales ▶ FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPlDoc ▶ TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPlDoc

The Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago). Compostela | Documentary Part 1

The Way of St James (Camino de Santiago) is the perfect mix of touristic-sports adventure and religious sentiment. This documentary shows all of the story from the origins until today. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary "Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago)" http://pdoc.es/WayStJamesPL The discovery of the sepulcher of the Apostle Santiago, in the first third of the IX century, compelled many Christians to make pilgrimages to Compostela to worship his relics. This required the construction of a church. This building, besides guarding and honoring the relics of the Apostle and his disciples Teodoro and Atanasio, had to take in a greater number of pilgrims coming from the Peninsular kingdoms, as well as from the rest of Europe. The purpose of its builders was not only to construct the most perfect church dedicated to the cult of the pilgrims; they wanted to make Compostela a religious and artistic reference for the world, like Rome and Jerusalem. These are the beginnings of a fascinating story, a fabulous saga spanning centuries carried out by thousands of people united in their devotion to the figure of the Apostle Santiago, in a remote corner of Finisterre. They called it Compostela: the field of stars. The present state of the Santiago Cathedral is the result of numerous changes, projects, works, remodeling; in short, an evolving and impassioned architectural and artistic creation developed throughout many centuries. ▶ Compostela: First part of the documentary The Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago). The Temple of stars. Even though Jerusalem, Rome and Santiago have been the three great destinations for pilgrims since the Middle Ages, the Jacobean Route to Santiago is the only one that is still traveled the same way today as it was back then: on foot and with little else than a shoulder pouch. It had been a long time since news of the discovery of the Santiago sepulcher had reached France. Near the end of the millennium and in the fields of Aquitania, stories were told of pilgrims who went to worship the Apostle’s tomb to the far reaches of Galician lands, over in the Finisterre. Those were dark and dangerous times. Travelers from the peninsula spoke of bloody battles between Christians and Muslims. Terror broke loose when the Saracen army flattened Compostela. Almanzor had destroyed its basilica and other churches and monasteries. The monks who fled were barely able to safeguard a few codexes and objects of great value. But things later improved. With the Caliphate of Cordoba increasingly worn down, Christians had secured a stable border. Free from threats, the people of the north of the peninsula could rebuild roads,trace new ways and repair bridges, thus normalizing communication with France.The chronicles spoke of the miracles of the Apostle. They said that they had been decisive in the fight against the Muslims.

There, we attended a Toraja funeral, an event that they have become an amazing ritual of several days. We dive into the wonderful world that lies behind the coral reef that runs through large part of the Indonesian archipelago. And finally we boarded on the Bajau (sea gypsies) houseboats who live in even closer contact with the sea. In fact, they could not conceive of life without it. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary. "Indonesia.The Ghosts of Sulawesi" http://pdoc.es/SulawesiPL The inhabitants of Sulawesi have always had a very close relationship with the sea. These men belong to the Bugui ethnic group, considered the best boat builders and sailors in the Indian Ocean. But there is another ethnic group which lives in even closer contact with the sea. In fact, they could not conceive of life without it. That group is the Bajau. At the other end of the island, in the calm waters of the Gulf of Tomini, these nomads have for centuries conquered the sea. They live out their lives on these small, fragile boats called leppas, where they are born, marry, reproduce and die. In them they move along the coast, propelled by the winds and the currents, and rarely set foot on dry land. Their origins remain unknown, though some anthropologists believe they come from the south of the Malaysian peninsula. Since then, innumerable legends have surrounded these the Sea Gypsies They rarely venture far from the coast. Their lives are spent fishing close by the mangrove swamps and the coral reefs. Here, they find almost everything they need. The Bajau know many different fishing methods, but perhaps the most curious of all is this one, fishing with kites. The technique they use is simple but very effective. It consists of attaching a hook to the kite, which is made from fern leaves, and with the help of a pole, the fisherman can move the hook as far out as he wants. The swaying of the kite keeps the bait in constant movement, attracting above all the flying fish. The government tried to house the first families along the coast, but they were unable to adapt to dry land, and soon returned to their boats. Then, the Bajau suggesting building the village over the sea, and so Torosiaji was born. Though the greatest number of Bajaus live in Sulawesi, there are also groups of them in Myanmar, where they are called Moken, or ‘the people drowned by the sea’; in Thailand, they are known as the Chao Nam, or ‘water people’, and they can also be found along the coasts of the Philippines and Vietnam. 16:50:00 The mosque and the school are the only buildings in Torosiaji standing on dry land. Well, not exactly dry land, because they have been build on foundations made of coral. At midday, the waters are very shallow, and this is when the Bajau comb the sea bottom in search of food. Their basic diet is fish and rice. The rice they buy in the markets on the coast, where once a week the women go to sell the fish they have caught, and buy basic necessities such as fresh water. The Bajau are also magnificent divers, and can remain underwater for over five minutes, and dive down up to 15 metres. ▶ SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶ FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶ TRIBES DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlTribes ▶ FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶ TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶ TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

I walk its length, amazed and somewhat seasick. It’s rectangular, built on a base of limestone, and covers an area of 15 acres. Inside the walls, Kuelap is a city of round houses with unusual conical roofs. As we approach the innermost enclaves of the Chachapoyas and their cliffside tombs, the atmosphere turns otherworldly and supernatural. More than 100 mummies have been found at the sacred mountain cliffs of La Petaca. How did they bury their dead on these inaccessible cliffs? If they used scaffolding of some kind, there is no sign of it. Nevertheless, the mummies are perfectly preserved. The sarcophagi of Karajia contain many Chachapoya mummies. The secrets of these statues that gaze off into space are another mystery that has yet to be explained. They are a real challenge to archaeologists and to me they are inexplicable.

Documentary "The Men of the Fifth World" | http://bit.ly/PlMen5World The Men of the Fifth World is a documentary that shows us the history, culture and traditions of the Australian aborigines, primitive tribes who inhabit these lands. The old Garimala Yakar, tells firsthand how their world is accompanied by the sound of the didgeridoo, the beat of their tradition, which keeps them together and attached to the land: "We share our land with all types of animals, some of them as dangerous as the sea crocodile, a sacred animal for us, even though it is capable of devouring a man in an instant. There are also dangerous poisonous snakes, and others like the olive python that kill their prey by strangling them. The kangaroo is the most characteristic animal of my country. I know over fifty different types, some of them over two metres high. They are beautiful and unique. When we get together to dance around the fire, we sing the dreams of the animals, the stories of how they were created. Those that dance and sing paint their faces and bodies with kaolin, to look like the spirits which, according to our beliefs, are of a grey colour. The dance of the women is slower and more measured. They are normally in a state of trance, possessed by the spirits of the forest which protect them".

Documentary "Mekong, the river of nine dragons" http://bit.ly/MekongDoc Our journey along the Mekong is coming to an end. Before flowing into the China Sea, in Vietnam, the river forms an extensive and complex delta, known as The Nine Dragons. A network of 5,000 kilometres of natural and artificial canals carries the waters to the rice fields. Cantho is the largest city in the delta. It's small in size, but with a large population. The Lee family runs a flourishing fish business in one corner of the market. Hue is thirty years old, and she is responsible for organising the sale of the merchandise every morning. Her biggest customer is the government itself, which in turn, sells to the restaurants and the workers in the state factories. Along with her, another fifteen members of the family help to unload, classify and clean the fish. The market in Cantho is an example of the rich gastronomy of Vietnam. Over five hundred different dishes, but all of them served with rice. Eight o'clock in the morning, and the Lee's are still busy at work. They transport the fish in primitive fish-farming boats. All types of boats come to the market to buy and sell many different things in the numerous floating markets around the delta. The delta was, until the eighteenth century, part of the Khmer Kingdom of neighbouring Cambodia, and was the last region to be annexed by Vietnam. The Cambodians have not forgotten this territory, which still today they call Lower Cambodia. It is one more reason for the mutual hatred between the two cultures. Around ten o'clock in the morning, the Lee family gets ready to return home. Today they have sold fish worth 75,000 pesetas, an absolute fortune if we consider that the average salary of a civil servant is not even 5,000 pesetas a month. The Lees live quarter of an hour from the market, on the other side of the main branch of the Mekong, in a group of floating houses.

The Gurung tribe makes its home in a deep valley at the foot of the southern face of the Annapurna peaks. We're at the cliff of 300 beehives where people collect the honey. This work it´s a dangerous task. Once the ladder is lowered down the cliff, a handful of burning leaves is put in place. This is essential. The rising smoke will drive the bees away from the honeycomb. His only protection is a mosquito veil over his head. Once he's directly in front of the colonies, he begins to work with a long pole and in the meantime the helpers remain as still as statues. Once the comb is divided, the honey must be collected. A good colony contains between 100 and 150 pounds of rich honey.

Kestrel documentary recorded in High Definition (HD). The hunt of this bird is very particular, it remains in the still air until it recognizes a potential prey and then it pounces to her. This pair of kestrels patrols the open plains in search of reptiles, insects, and small birds and mammals. Out on the plains, camouflage is essential for survival. Perched on a promontory, he waits for any sign of overconfidence. Occasionally, a low flypast leads to an impetuous victim to give away its position. This small falcon weighs no more than 200g and possesses extraordinary eyesight. he can distinguish the smallest of movements even of a grasshopper up to 100m away. Through their hunting, these small raptors help prevent infestations of insects and small mammals, and so they are highly beneficial for the environment ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ EXPRES DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-express-documentaries ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc
Wild Wolves Hunting | HD Documentary
 
03:04
The wild wolf, at the top of the food chain, is the natural predator. This exceptional carnivore is a social animal of extraordinary adaptability and cunning. Impeccably led by an alpha male, the pack of wolves works together, stalking deer herds, on the lookout for any signs of fatigue or illness: this individual will become the target. Contrary to popular belief, domestic livestock is not part of the wolf’s natural menu:a pack in good condition much prefers wild grazers. And the wolf is the only natural predator of wild boars, deer and foxes, so it is a fundamental and crucial link in any ecosystem to which it belongs. Tactical and tireless pursuit... until at last the weakest succumbs. At night fall, the inhabitants of the scrubland merge into shadow, and the undergrowth becomes a battlefield, a place of life and death. All group members pf wild wolves take part in the hunt, but when it comes to mealtime, a strict social hierarchy is followed: gestures of power and submission, lead to angry exchanges, breaking the tense silence of the night. Only when the alpha male has eaten will he allow the rest to sit at the banquet. Gestures of submission in his companion are enough to appease the battle-hardened leader of the pack: if she behaves well, she will be the next to get her share of the spoils. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ EXPRES DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-express-documentaries ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc
Aboriginal Hunting | Culture - Planet Doc Full Documentaries

Australian aborigines make their own weapons for hunting. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! Ever since people began to hunt, they've racked their brains to invent ever more efficient weapons to bring down their prey. But some of them came up with solutions before the others… Deep in the rainforest they cut lengths of flexible bougainvillea to make spears and harpoons for fishing. They took up the spear against the white men who invaded their country and made them prisoners in their own land. Back outside the forest, a fire is built and the flexible new shafts are heated for straightening and hardening. Then they’re stripped of their bark and cut to the best length for each man. When the tide goes out they hunt the dangerous sting rays. These rays can hide in the sand and give you a painful, stinging surprise… but this hunter is watchful and attentive. After capturing the animal, he holds its tail in his mouth and pulls out the poisonous stinger. Sometimes, of course, a spear can be a little too short… That’s why they invented the boomerang. A simple piece of wood formed into a slight curve that makes it more accurate when thrown. The heavier it is, the more crushing is the blow when it hits its prey. The most skilled hunters can hit an animal from a distance of more than 175 yards. And contrary to popular belief, the boomerang doesn’t come back after it's thrown. That story was made up for tourists, my friend.

▶ Subscribe to our HD documentary channel! The golden eagle has a wingspan of almost two and a half meters. It hides its presence by hugging the mountain slopes, hoping to catch its prey off-guard. This unrivalled predator feeds on a wide range of prey, including many species of birds and reptiles, but mostly it prefers mammals such as rabbits, hares and groundhogs; it will even hunt foxes, boars and deer. The domains of this majestic bird of prey range from the highest peaks to the deepest valleys, and cover a hunting territory of up 100 square km. The domains of this majestic bird of prey range from the highest peaks to the deepest valleys, and cover a hunting territory of up 100 square km. It hunts at low altitude, sticking close to the mountainside with its languid flight, then diving suddenly onto potential prey. In the mountains during the spring, young groundhog pups are a vital food source for its own brood. But groundhogs are extremely cautious animals, and work together to stay on watch:a system of call signals warns of any danger. Hidden between the slopes, the eagle evades the vigilant eyes of its unsuspecting victim. This incautious groundhog can do nothing when confronted with the king of the skies.
Indigenous Ethnic Groups | Ivory Coast
 
02:29
There are more than sixty indigenous ethnic groups in the Ivory Coast: the Dan is one of them. For them, ceremonial dances have a special significance and importance. The Dan are known for being fierce warriors, forever locked in a struggle with neighboring peoples. But when it comes to dancing, they become peacemakers, organizing two-day festivals in which the best dancers from neighboring villages are chosen. The vocal polyphony is energetic, accompanied by loud drums; women also actively participate in the musical ritual. This is a typical imitative dance, one of the many varieties of these ethnic groups choreography in Ivory Coast. A man wears a mask symbolizing a forest animal. To the sound of drums, the protagonist is driven to the center of the dancing arena by the ringmasters. Supported on stilts, he jumps to mimic the animal he represents. The Dan believe in a world divided into two halves: the village and its inhabitants on one side, and on the other, the world of wild animals and guiding spirits of the forest. In Ivory Coast the amazing stunts sometimes continue until the dancers fall into a trance.
Tibetan Culture & Buddhism

At the foot of the Kunlun Mountains in the Himalayas, within the Indian state of Kashmir, is Ladakh. Here, Tibetan culture permeates every corner. Tibetan Buddhists practice meditation to worship Buddha, a man who after mindfulness meditation achieved an illuminative state (nirvana) 2,500 years ago. And so these monks meditate as he did, in the hope of achieving the virtues of goodness and wisdom. The monastery door open, the music of gongs and strident trumpets fusing with the repetitive swirling prayers emanating from the mills for meditation and relax. The pungent smell of yak butter drifts up from the sacred enclosure, impregnating every room; the repetitive echo of mantras fill the air. In the shadows of the central chamber, monks and faithful pray: only candlelight pierces the darkness where they worship Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha.

Feral Cat HD Documentary
 
02:46
New Playlist with HD documentaries! A feral cat waits for the right moment to launch its lethal attack, crouched between the branches. In the most isolated mountain forests lives one of the last feral cat in Europe. Feral cats feed on small mammals and birds which they hunt in the early hours of the evening. This tired pigeon is looking for a quiet place to roost for the night, and is unaware of the discreet presence of the feline. With the utmost stealth, it finds a blind spot from which to approach without detection: the least noise or sudden movement would betray its presence. It advances in stages, until it close enough to reach its prey in a final, explosive sprint. Sadly for this feral cat, crossbreeding and hybridization with domestic cats is undermining the purity of this extraordinary wild feline. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶EXPRESS DOCUMENTARIES http://pdoc.es/ExpressPL ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc
Way of life of Tarahumara Tribe
 
03:18
▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ Spanish video: http://planetdoc.tv/documental-indios-tarahumaras The Tarahumara Indians live in northwest Mexico. The family is very important to them because it’s the basic social unit that they depend on for their well-being, such as it is. They are strong people, accustomed to live with very little, and they value people more than things. The most experienced man in the village is the siríame, or chief. He is elected by the public raising of hands. Every Sunday he gives a public talk and the people come to him to solve community problems. They entrust their children with responsibilities from a very early age; they never scold them and they teach them to make decisions for themselves. They have corn and a few animals. Scarcity leads to illness, but despite his appearance this boy is being treated, says the village doctor, an affable man named Cherokee. The Raramuri marry very young, from the age of sixteen. The women call all their children by the same name: Dánala. Raramuri means “those with light feet”. They have always liked to run, and they still do; that’s why the men play rarajipo. To play this game they kick a small ball with the top of their feet as they run along a course. They kick a ball called the komakali forcefully with the tops of their feet. Each team supports its favourite player. They follow him throughout the race, providing water, food and encouragement. The teams bet, and the winner is whoever makes it to the finish line, which may be 60 to 120 miles from the start, but that’s no big deal for these Indians with light feet…
Mauritania | Nomads of the Sahara
 
05:38
Mauritania. The land of which, since ancient times, a thousand poets have sung. The country of the bidanes. And of the ADRAR TMAR, the fabulous mountains of sweet dates. These lonely escarpments hide some of the most jealously guarded treasures of the great Sahara desert. For as long as anyone can remember, the nomads have come to these oases to rest and escape from the burning heat. Small islands of intense green and babbling waters. The oasis of TERYIT is home to some of the most important endemic plant species, such as the Saharan fern. In the crystalline waters that gush from the spring live, inexplicably, dozens of small fish, true living fossils from the time when rivers flowed across this desert. In the Mauritanian Adrar, one of the most spectacular phenomena in the world can be found. This is GUELB ER RICHAT, a gigantic primitive volcano the enormous size of which can only be appreciated from the air. Mauritania is a country entirely of desert and with a fascinating history. The terrifying canyons of the AMOJIAR ravine, its vertical walls, and the frequent landslides formed part of the dangers of the road which the ancient caravans had to negotiate in order to reach the mythical cities of the Gold Route. The lost cities of Mauritania. WADAN, the legendary city of palm groves, and its mysterious founders, the BAFUR, who trained dogs for war and were great musicians. To Wadan came the caravans of thousands of dromedaries from the black kingdom of GHANA with slaves, gold and shellac, to exchange them for the salt the wadanies mined in the SEBJA of IYIL. In these lands, the fierce Almoravid warriors conceived their epic plan of creating a vast African empire which would stretch from the river Niger to the shores of the Ebro, in Al-Andalus. They brought together all the tribes of the Sahara under the flag of the most orthodox Islam. This city, formerly rich thanks to its immense palm groves, stands in the centre of the TURAB AL BIDAN, “The Land of the White Men”, the natural frontier with Black Africa. Like all the great cities along the caravan routes, Wadan, before its final decline as a result of the internal struggles which laid it to waste in the eighteenth century, was an important centre for the dissemination of culture. Today, all that remain are the ruins of the once bustling city. It is virtually deserted, its former prosperity now reduced to the very image of desolation. The other great caravan centre in the Adrar of Mauritania is CHINGUETTI. According to popular belief, it was founded by the Almoravids, though studies have suggested it was of later construction. Like Wadan, it is in a lamentable state of conservation, despite the funds donated by UNESCO in order to preserve it. The mosque is the most important building in Chinguetti and perhaps in all of Mauritania. Every year, below its minaret, of dry-stone masonry and reconstructed several times, thousands of the Turab al Bidan faithful gathered to set out on the pilgrimage to Mecca. For this reason, Chinguetti was considered the seventh holy city of Islam. The precarious state of the city is due to the inexorable advance of the desert and the circle of encroaching dunes which are slowly burying it forever. So, the people abandon their homes which, empty and unattended, in time simply crumble. The few inhabitants that still remain are elusive and the streets are empty. It is, to all intents an purposes, a ghost town. Only the odd crafts stall, where you can now buy a family’s most treasured memories, reminds us of the former splendour of Chinguetti, once the source of all erudition and knowledge in Mauritania. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ TRIBES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-tribes-documentaries ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

Senufo Art - Ivory Coast
 
06:39
The Senufo also have one of the richest craft traditions in Africa. On their looms they continue to weave cloth as they have always done. The technique of these artisans has remained entirely unchanged. Every day, they weave long strips of cloth, which will later be joined together to make cotton canopies, for a number of different uses. The swift hands of the men move with the skill that can only be acquired over time, placing the threads of different colours which make up each intricate design. From father to son, to grandson, the art of weaving has been handed down since time immemorial. Senufo painting is also among the most widely recognised in Africa. Picasso came here, seeking inspiration for cubism, from these artists who expression the visions of the hunters, or the deities of the Poro. They use vegetable paints made using techniques whose origins are lost in the depths of time. There are three main colours: red, ochre and black, which only stains the canvas if it is applied over the ochre. It is spread without ever tarnishing the white, as if by magic. It could be no other way, here in Africa. They make no preliminary sketches, but trace the designs directly with rudimentary iron implements. Freehand, they dry all types of designs, with delicate strokes on the rough cotton cloth, and never making even the slightest mistake. These canopies are a synthesis of Senufo cosmogony. They depict the deities and scenes from the Poro, like this one, showing the Boloy, the dance of the panther. The Boloy is a symbolic representation of the Poro, showing the military training of its members. The movements are inspired by those of the panther, the sacred animal of the Senufo. Initiation into the Poro is obligatory, and lasts for seven years. During this time, the wisest transmit the knowledge of the society to the young men, through words and symbols. All those who complete their initiation at the same time are said to belong to the same colobele, and this will be a bond which unites them for the rest of their lives. In the public dances, each dancer represents a different colobele, and challenges the others by performing steps and acrobatic movements, demonstrating his training and skill. They believe in a single god called Kolotyoloo, who gave life to the first human couple. This couple had twins, who were the first human beings born of man, and the Senufo are descended from these. Between god and men there are the spirits of the ancestors, and those of deities such as the python, the messenger from the other world. The Poro was created in order to defend themselves from enemies and outside influences. Little by little, it gained strength, and became one of the most complex life philosophies in Black Africa. In modern times, the Poro has proven able to resist both Islam and Christianity, and has preserved the Senufo culture almost intact. Its social content creates a bond and feeling of brotherhood among its members. From the time they begin their initiation, the young men perform agricultural work for the Poro, in the so-called “fields of the nobles”, distributed among the oldest members, and intended to meet the needs of the community.
Serengeti National Park - Part 4
 
07:21
▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ Spanish video: http://planetdoc.tv/documental-parque-nacional-serengueti-parte-3 The Serengeti National Park is located in the eastern region of Africa between the Rift Valley and Lake Victoria, covering an area of 30,000 km2, is the scene of one of the most spectacular migrations on earth. Every year, hundreds of thousands of gnus follow the rains in search of pasture, in a cyclical migration which marks the lives of both plants and animals in the regions they cross. The government of Tanzania, aware of the importance of this migration, decided to give official protection to 17,000 km2 of this region. And so the Serengeti National Park was born 03.14 There are six different species of vulture in the Serengeti. The bearded vulture and the white-headed vulture are not only scavengers but also predators, and are capable of eating muscle and hard tissue, thanks to their powerful beaks. They then leave way for the white-back vulture and the roppel who, with their long, featherless necks, can reach right down into the entrails. Finally, the hooded vulture and the Egyptian vulture will clear up anything left on the body or on the ground. From a great distance, the vultures can be seen landing, and this helps scavengers on land find the dead bodies. Thanks to its tremendous speed, the cheetah is the most successful feline hunter in the Serengeti. However, with the advantage of speed comes the lack of strength to fight off lions and hyenas and, whenever they can, they will snatch his food from him. This herbivore, the Thompson's gazelle, makes up 90% of the cheetah’s diet, and he will join them on their annual migration. Wherever they go, he follows in pursuit. The gazelles follow the herds of gnus as they cross the savannah. The gnu represents less than 5% of the cheetah's diet, but he is nonetheless very much affected by their migrations. Life in the Serengeti is influenced by the migrations of the gnus, but is ultimately determined by the rains. In the northern region of the Serengeti, the landscape changes. The vast, open plains give way to trees, and instead of the short, resistant grasses, we find other types, growing up to two metres high. The animals, too, are different here. A leopard. This cat prefers trees to empty spaces. The trees can be used as watchtowers, and provide shelter and a safe place, out of reach of the lions and hyenas, where he can hide the animals he has hunted down. His rate of success in hunting is much lower than that of the cheetah, and he simply can't afford to have his food stolen. On the western edge of the park, the Grumeti river has its own particular ecosystem. This is the land of the hippopotamus. They are nocturnal animals, dozing during the day, and making the most of the cool of night to eat the 60kg of grass they need every day. As the temperature rises, they move and find rest and relief in the water. It may not look like it, but the hippopotamus' skin is very sensitive to the sun. When they are not submerged in the water, they have to cover themselves in mud, to protect themselves from the harmful rays. Of all the predators in the Serengeti, only one is feared by the hyenas. This is the largest, and most powerful of all - the lion. Stealing food is normal in the Serengeti. The lions steal from the hyenas, the hyenas from the cheetahs, and the leopards hide their food in the trees to prevent it from being taken.

The australian turkey has to build a giant nest, a place for his females to lay their eggs. SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! When Australia separated from Gondwana ages ago, its animal species were isolated from the rest of the world. Not quite all of them, though. Birds could still fly between the land masses. Giant birds called moas developed in these jungles where food was abundant and there were few predators. Some of them weighed as much as 550 pounds. This is a distant relative of those birds. The talegalla is polygamous and has to provide a place for his females to lay their eggs. He’s building a very unusual nest. The turkey gathers together leaves and other plant materials to build his love nest The turkey gathers all the leaves he can. Then a fungus grows among them and they decompose. This process of decomposition produces heat, which turns the nest into a real incubator. The incubator always has to be between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius. To take the temperature of the nest the turkey has a thermometer in his tongue or in his beak we don´t really know.

Hunters: Golden Eagle
 
03:17
The golden eagle is the biggest hunter of the sky. In Mongolia we find eagles hunting foxes and wolves when they arrive the first snows of winter. The hunting season begins for falconers. The Kazakhs must wait for the winter to begin to hunt, as this will give time for their eagles to breed and raise their young. They usually take up position on the peaks after riding for hours: from here they can survey more territory than from down in the plains; and it is from here they will launch their eagles. The first potential prey appears. Now it's just a question of releasing the birds and letting them do their job. The eagle pursues its prey, a fox. The sheer size of this apex predator means that this fox has no chance of escape. And although the fox struggles, even biting its aggressor, the accurate blows of the eagle’s huge talons bring the fox’s end quickly. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ EXPRES DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-express-documentaries ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

The discovery of the Tomb of the Lord of Sipan, a former president of Peru, was the most important archaeological discovery of America in the last decades. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary "The Forerunners of the Inca" http://pdoc.es/ForeIncas In every corner of Peru, we find pyramids and tombs. The country is one enormous archaeological treasure, and experts estimate that only about 15% has been discovered. Every day, gangs of ‘huaqueros’, or grave robbers, defile a little more of this world cultural heritage. The sacred site of Sipan stands on a former Mochica cemetery. Often, when a new grave is dug, they find a mummy, with its treasures of pottery and decorative objects. Here is buried the first grave robber to enter the funeral pyramid of the Lord of Sipan, the most important archaeological find in America in recent decades. His name was Ernil Bernal. These objects are made of gold, and come from the tomb of the Lord of Sipan. The police seized them from the grave robber Ernil Bernal, and they provided the clue for the archaelogist Walter Alva to discover this extraordinary Moche mausoleum.

Mangrove | Nature - Planet Doc Full Documentaries
 
03:25
▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ NATURE DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlNature There are many mangroves in cuba island, in addition to beautiful beaches. The word mangrove comes from a Guaraní word meaning “twisted tree”. Under water, mangrove roots look like a twisted mass of vegetation. The many roots stabilize the sand and mud. Ocean water and fresh water mix here. The mix is full of nutrients, fish and crustaceans. Plants have adapted to the lack of oxygen and easily reproduce, turning the swamp’s floor into a tangle of vegetation and that is the mangrove. The area under the water is a labyrinth and above the surface it’s an aquatic jungle. Many other leafy and woody plants thrive in addition to the mangroves. These mangroves develop in a very individual fashion. Their seeds are long and pointed and when they drop they have several options. They may float away, germinate, or grow roots to sink into the swamp floor. To birds, the mangrove swamp seems like a peaceful place to nest, especially if they eat fish. Many animals live off the mangrove’s leaves and fruit. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs ▶NATURE DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlNature ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc
