Nature - Europe's Enchanted Lands (#33QD3721)
Program 1: Land of the Falling Lakes - In the heart of Croatia lies a hidden treasure--Plitvice Lakes National Park. This extraordinary natural preserve is a fairy tale world that has lain undisturbed for centuries. That is, until Civil War tore the Balkans apart a decade ago. But, Plitvice has an almost supernatural ability to regenerate and heal itself. The restless landscape is constantly in motion, continually building new waterfalls and pools, merging its elements to create a place like no other. In this spellbinding episode from the award-winning PBS series, witness the savagery and splendor of nature that has created a kingdom formed, and ruled, by water. Here, one of the continent's largest population of brown bears, packs of wolves and lynx, and a host of other rare and remarkable creatures that have all but disappeared elsewhere, seek safe haven. Each season brings its own unique beauty to one of the last ancient European forests and an unparalleled world of crystal-clear lakes that flow into one another through a series of spectacular terraces and cascading waterfalls. It is a land of wonders.
Program 2: Ireland - From its ocean shores and wooded glens to its isolated mountains, Ireland's breathtaking landscapes seem untouched by time. Narrated by Jason O'Mara, this enchanting episode from public television's honored natural history series etches a vivid portrait of the Emerald Isle, graced with a host of plants and animals that thrive in one of the most varied landscapes in Europe. Rare native flowers, colonies of sea birds, dolphins and peregrine falcons, and the legendary racehorses of the Irish National Stud are only part of Ireland's fascinating story. Ireland's timeless beauty has survived the ages. But, what is old to us is still young to the land, which has been transformed again and again. Sheathed in ice; sculpted by retreating glaciers; covered in vast forests of oak; reshaped by human history; Ireland's story is still unfolding.
