The Arctic: Our Last Great Wilderness – 45 minutes, Canada

Imagine a place in the far north of Alaska that is vast, wild, and magical – where one of earth’s greatest natural spectacles unfolds. Princess Daazhraii Johnson of the Gwich’in tribe reveals the land that has sustained her people for untold generations. Journey with National Geographic photographer Florian Schulz on his five-year quest to film the elusive 200,000 strong Porcupine Caribou herd as it migrates to the Arctic Coastal Plain, one of the longest animal migrations on earth.


Moti Bagh – 60 minutes, India - subtitles

83 year old Vidyadutt Sharma holds the record for growing the heaviest radish in India weighing 23 kgs and he now aims to beat the world record of 31 kgs. Over the last five decades, he has built up Moti Bagh, his 5 acre farm in a small Himalayan village in northern India. All around him lie ghost villages, left to die, with no one to till the land – a chilling testimony to large scale migration by locals in search of employment in the cities.
