About Video #1

This is BBC One’s web exclusive Human Planet series trailer. Human Planet (http://www.bbc.co.uk/humanplanet) is an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind’s incredible relationship with nature in the world today.

About Video #2

A montage of clips from the “Ice Worlds” episode of Planet Earth, set to “Glosoli” by Sigur Ros.

These two videos might be enough for a human being to start admiring the Planet and come to understanding of how the Earth is amazing and… fragile…

Sometimes we forget where we live. It’s good to sit in the cafe and drink coffee and enjoy this special moment. It’s funny to read gossips about Charlie Sheen and other celebrities. It’s good to drive highways at high speed and get excited from your freedom…

But… what if we’ll start paying a little attention to our surroundings and thinking, how all this amazingness around us might be ruined just in a few moments? Maybe, some good things will come with it?

Ok. Let’s stop with speeches. Frankly, I am far away from environmental policy things. Just… it would be really pitty to loose such beauty one day. Do you want that? Me not. “Our planet is cool, let’s keep it that way.” (c)

If wonder, what we can do, read Moki Kokori’s message in the previous post.

Bruce Parry (with a tripod) and his team in Yakutsk, Yakutia/Siberia

Hurray! Bruce Parry with his IndusFilm crew is in the Siberian town of Yakutsk! What’s he doing here?

Bruce Parry (born 17 March 1969, in Hythe, Hampshire, England) is a former Royal Marine instructor who is now a TV presenter and adventurer, known particularly for the documentary programme series Tribe (known as Going Tribal in the United States), co-produced by the BBC and the Discovery Channel. Resource: Wiki.

I met Bruce Parry two days ago on Lenin Avenue in Yakutsk. Actually he and his team arrived early, on June 17th. They have already visited a village near the town, went for two celebrations of Ysyakh, Yakut national holiday. One was held in Gorny ulus (three hours by a car from Yakutsk) and Megino-Kangalassky region (just in the front of Yakutsk on the opposite bank of the Lena River). On the day of the meeting, they visited Epl Diamonds’ diamonds-cutting and jewelry’s factories and drove around the downtown shooting general views of the city.

First, I would love to tell the story of how his arrival happened to be possible. (more…)

Sir David is filming for a BBC 1 series, Frozen Planet

Sir David Attenborough has realised a life-long ambition and reached the North Pole, the BBC has said.

The broadcaster, 84, is filming in the Arctic Circle for Frozen Planet, a BBC One series due to air in late 2011.

Sir David, who has also visited the South Pole for the series, said it was a “huge privilege” to reach both Poles.

The BBC said the seven-part series is the “ultimate polar expedition to the last great wilderness on the planet – before the regions change forever”.

Speaking from the Svalbard archipelago, 700 miles from the North Pole, Sir David said: “The Poles – North and South – look superficially very similar.
