Views: The Volcanoes And Rainforests Of Indonesia

We are greatly inspired by nature’s beauty. And that feeling was especially strong while we were visiting Indonesia. At first, we couldn’t even believe that all this is real. Giant trees with leaves as big as people. Beaches with waves higher than most houses. Volcanoes surrounded by deserted valleys with unbelievable colours.

Our project aims to immerse the viewer into that fantastic atmosphere: with every frame of video footage, with every note of orchestral music. We want you to really feel the overwhelming beauty of those flights. We have been working on this project for a 1,5 year. And every day of work brought us back to those places and the emotions we experienced.

We lived on Java and Bali for 4 months and it allowed us to feel the islands, to absorb the local atmosphere. It helped us to find the best angles and composition to capture the immense beauty of Indonesia. And now we’re finally ready to share it with you.

Cinematic Travel: ‘The Iceland Adventure’ (4K)

Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. 

It’s been a year since I made a trip to Iceland with my sister. This was when the Faggrasjadal volcano was still active and we really wanted to see it with our own eyes. And this was definitely one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had.

In addition, we drove through almost all of Iceland in five days and we visited a lot of spectacular places with the most beautiful views. Five days is of course way too little to see everything and that’s why I really can’t wait until I can go back to visit Iceland.

Nature: The Wildlife And Landscapes Of Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a rugged, rainforested Central American country with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. Though its capital, San Jose, is home to cultural institutions like the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle, teeming with wildlife including spider monkeys and quetzal birds.

Art: Volcano Painting In Europe From 1780-1870

‘It is desirable for a Painter, at least once in his life, to witness the Eruption of a volcano.’ – Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes (1799). Join exhibition contributor Clive Oppenheimer, Professor of Volcanology at the Department of Geography at the University of Cambridge, and explore the ‘Volcanoes’ section of True to Nature. #TrueToNature is open at the Fitzwilliam Museum until 29 August 2022 https://fitz.ms/ttn

Science: Tonga Volcanic Eruption, Roaming Genes Of Reindeers, Pterosaurs

Scientists scramble to understand the devastating Tongan volcano eruption, and modelling how societal changes might alter carbon emissions.

In this episode:

00:46 Understanding the Tongan eruption

On the 15th of January, a volcano in the South Pacific Ocean erupted, sending ash into the upper atmosphere, and unleashing a devastating tsunami that destroyed homes on Tonga’s nearby islands. Now scientists are trying to work out exactly what happened during the eruption — and what it means for future volcanic risks.

News Feature: Why the Tongan eruption will go down in the history of volcanology

08:49 Research Highlights

The genes associated with reindeers’ roaming behaviour, and how fossilised puke has thrown up new insights into pterosaurs’ stomachs.

11:29 Modelling societal changes to carbon emissions

A team of researchers have modelled what humans might do in the face of climate change, and looked at how societal, political and technological changes could alter future emissions.

Views: Ecuador – Wildlife, Rainforests & Waterfalls

Ecuador is a country straddling the equator on South America’s west coast. Its diverse landscape encompasses Amazon jungle, Andean highlands and the wildlife-rich Galápagos Islands. In the Andean foothills at an elevation of 2,850m, Quito, the capital, is known for its largely intact Spanish colonial center, with decorated 16th- and 17th-century palaces and religious sites, like the ornate Compañía de Jesús Church.

Travel: Iceland – People, Culture And Landscapes

Our Iceland Travel Guide! Finally after two years we are able to bring the epic country of Iceland to you. We wanted to make sure we re-launched our travel show with something spectacular and Iceland fit the bill perfectly. From the volcanoes, to the geysers, to the beaches, to the food to the people, Iceland is like nowhere I’ve ever been before.

What an insanely beautiful place. We’re joined in this episode by the incomparable Icelandic chef and TV star Ólafur Örn Ólafsson. What an absolute legend, a true ambassador for Iceland and an honour to be able to include him in our little show.

We couldn’t have made our Iceland episode without the help of Greg Annandale, Dan Rubin, Paul Papadimitriou, and Nordurflug Helicopter Tours (http://www.helicopter.is).
