Few places in the world are so little-known as the impenetrable jungles of the Congo. Deep in the jungle, the stories of explorers, journalists, scientists, and missionaries, stories that seem to spring from fevers and the imagination, gradually take shape. The legends come alive when the Baaka Pygmies guide our cameras into the lush vegetation to show us the reality behind the myths. Genocidal kings, living dinosaurs, peaceful giants, demonic killers… the spirits of the jungle are backed by rational explanations with scientific and historical analysis. Although such analysis may reveal that the reality is much more terrible than the fantasy of the legends....

They are the largest land animals on the planet. They appeared on the Earth 50 million years ago, long before humans emerged as a species, and they spread all over the world, to the very edges of the permafrost regions. They are strong, intelligent and have a powerful ability to adapt. But, more than anything, their evolutionary success can be traced to their extraordinary family ties. By following the story of three females, we learn about the biology, lifestyle and customs of elephants. And these three elephants are quite different. The first is the son of a forest elephant, a relatively unknown species, who makes his first trip to a bai and must learn, alongside his family, how to get to the salt which lies hidden underground. The second, an African bush elephant, is a weathered matriarch who must lead her family to water when their territory suffers a severe drought. And the third is an Indian elephant, mother to a young son, whose territory is shrinking due to the effect...

The crocodile appeared on Earth eighty million years ago. They lived alongside and hunted the big dinosaurs. They are the last survivors of the Archosaurs, which means “dominant reptiles,” a group that also included the dinosaurs and pterosaurs (flying dinosaurs), among others. What allowed them to outlast all their contemporaries and survive to our day? The answer lies in the extraordinary combination of adaptations found in the crocodile’s body. Despite their primitive appearance, they are animals that are highly specialized for their way of life. In fact, although they are reptiles, their anatomy and behavior link them more closely to birds than to lizards. They are the largest river predators, and yet, of the 12 species living today, only two can be considered man-eaters: the saltwater crocodile and the Nile crocodile. In this documentary we will discover how crocodiles live and, by observing many of their species (saltwater crocodiles, Nile crocodiles, Cuban cro...

Through their two adventures we will gradually reveal the bright and dark sides of this extraordinary journey.
