Norway is a fascinating land in the extreme north of Europe where both magic and fairytales are very much alive. It has crystal clear lakes and rivers, snow covered mountains, idyllic fishing villages and endless beaches that are only accessible by boat. Although the Norwegian metropolis of Oslo is a modern city it continues to be inspired by the lively spirit of its past traders, fighting men and seafarers. Oslo is a harbour town that lies well sheltered at the end of a fjord and in the ninth century it was much appreciated by the Vikings who travelled throughout the known world, plundering much of it! Bergen's main tourist attraction is the Bryggen district that originated in the middle of the fourteenth century when it was heavily influenced by the North German Hanseatic Office. The city not only boasts a fascinating history but also a number of music festivals and it was the birthplace of world famous composer Edvard Grieg. Trondheim is Norway's historic capital in which the country's kings have been crowned. The Nidaros Domkirke is the most splendid Gothic cathedral in northern Europe. It was built on the bones of Holy Olav. The small village of Nusfjord is located in front of a captivating backdrop of mountains. Due to its unique location it looks more like a high mountain village than a fishing settlement. It is both an historical as well as a cultural treasure. It is easy to understand why the descendants of the Vikings are so proud of their fascinating home in the extreme north. Norway, a country bursting with breathtaking and untamed beauty!

Argentina is the second largest country in South America and a captivating land of tango, adventure and breathtaking nature. Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and the most European city in South America with buildings that are reminiscent of bygone times. The mighty Plaza De Mayo is the historic heart of the city, along with the presidential palace, the Casa Rosada and the Catedral Metropolitana. Today the tango is performed in each corner of the city and in the nineteenth century poor immigrants from Italy and Spain settled in Buenos Aires. We visit an estanzia, a feudal residence of the beef barons who once settled on the endless plains of the pampas and who built their farmhouses according to the rustic designs of the nobility. From Salta Station we begin a fascinating train journey on the Tren A Las Nubes, the "train into the clouds",.which will climb to more than three thousand metres above sea level along one of the highest railroads in the world. The Los Glaciares National Park is a mixture of lakes, glaciers, mountains and untouched wilderness yet despite the harsh climate the local vegetation captivates due to its diversity. Our journey comes to an end. From north to south, through cities and pampas to glaciers and mountains, Argentina is a dream destination come true!

Ireland is one of Europe's most green and mysterious islands and everyone who visits this isolated island in the Atlantic Ocean is given a very warm welcome. Dublin is the capital of the Irish Republic and it is a city of musicians, poets and dreamers, as well as being a financial centre. Its many old buildings indicate its long and dramatic past. It was founded by the Vikings within a wonderful valley where the River Liffey flows into the Atlantic Ocean. After the Vikings, the Normans conquered the city and ruled over it for seven hundred years and under King Henry The Eighth Dublin became the capital of what was then a British colony. South west of Dublin is Kildare, the heart of Ireland's horse racing. In 1902 the Irish national stud, Tully House, was founded there. Rich and eccentric Scottish brewery heir, Colonel William Hall-Walker, had the idea of a creating unique horse breeding scheme that would be based upon astrological calculation. The Wicklow Mountains are a natural paradise of mountains, swamps and lakes, beautiful valleys and a fascinating mountain landscape to the south of Dublin. Jerpoint Abbey near Thomastown dates back to the twelfth century and is one of the most beautiful Cistercian ruins in Ireland. The Cistercians built the monastery in characteristic style and one of the stone sarcophaguses is said to contain the bones of Holy Nicolas who was buried there by the Crusaders. Although much of it has remained unspoiled, Ireland has undergone much change. It is a land of great natural beauty, healthy commercial success and excellent hospitality: a wild green island set in the wild Atlantic Ocean!

An extensive, scant desert landscape surrounds the Petrified Forest National Park, east of Arizona. Two hundred million years ago this region was a swampland inhabited by various species of dinosaur whose fossilised remains can be found throughout the park. The sight of the magnificent rock formations of Bryce Canyon to the southwest of Utah is a truly breathtaking experience. In their native tongue the region's Paiute Indians once named this remarkable place as, "Red rocks that stand like men in a bowl-shaped canyon". Since the first settlers arrived in Bryce Canyon many have found it difficult to describe this beautiful and unique world of natural stone. The sheer vastness of the region along with its seemingly endless variety of rock formations makes any visit a rewarding and memorable experience. It is from the steep cliffs of New England's coast to the north of the State of Maine that the power of the sea manifests itself and as soon as the mist begins to clear in the Acadia National Park the view reveals the magnificent forests that have made it such a popular sightseeing destination. From September to the end of November, the forests of New England shine out in remarkable and truly amazing colour. Surrounded by the grey limestone of the Muddy Mountains the rocks in the Valley Of Fire, the oldest state park in Nevada, glow with a remarkable intensity. The red rocks do indeed appear to burn in a magical fire that seems to transform them into stone. Mono lake is the greatest crater lake in the world and although it is one of the oldest lakes in North America its water is three times as salty as the sea! Situated in the state of Utah the Arches National Park is one of the most famous national parks in North America and owes its fame to its fantastic sandstone arches. In spite of its comparatively modest size of three hundred square kilometres it boasts one of the most magnificent landscapes in the entire south west of the United States.

All across the continent are clues that help us to shed light on the deep past and Europe's dramatic creation. In Genesis, we witness the birth of mountains as tall as the Himalayas, coalfields transformed in to leafy swamps roamed by giant dragonflies and plesiosaurs roaming our once-tropical oceans. In this educational BBC documentary programme we see the raising of the Alps and the ripping open of the Atlantic as Europe is finally born. Genesis takes us on an epic story which began an unbelievably long time ago. Search through the bleak, primeval landscape of Norway's Lofoten Islands and you find Europe's oldest rocks, formed three billion years ago! At this time our future continent was a collection of fragments resting near the South Pole. Moving at the stately pace of four centimetres a year it took them two billion years to unite. Complex life first appeared in Europe only 550 million years ago and fossil evidence from places like the vineyards of Jura and the dramatic limestone scenery of Verdon gorge in France reveal that central Europe was once a magical underwater world, teeming with bizarre creatures such as trilobites, seapens and jellyfish. And when the parts of our continent-to-be finally met, this sea was gradually swallowed up. Using stunning graphic techniques we witness the full impact of these collisions and show the birth of enormous mountains which stretched all the way from Ireland to Norway, and are still so visible today. The great coal fields on which the continent's industry developed are the remains of steamy carboniferous swamps once roamed by giant insects, before the continent was plunged in to a period of fiery desert. Where Rome, Paris and Athens now stand once looked and felt like the heart of the Sahara. Dinosaurs soon stalked the land in great numbers leaving behind evidence in almost every country. This was a turbulent time when continents were still shifting, huge volcanoes erupting and then a giant meteorite hit the planet, dramatically ending the reign of the dinosaurs. Then, as the oceans expanded and the Earth cooled, Europe arrived in the Northern hemisphere. A whole new world of plants and animals had evolved to meet these fresh conditions, as beautifully revealed in the Baltic amber washed ashore in Poland and the remarkable fossils in Solnhofen, Germany. And then finally, following the dramatic creation of the Alps and the opening up of the Mediterranean, the birth of Europe was complete.

2.5 million years ago, a periodic shift in the Earth's orbit, coupled with a tilt in its axis, triggered a sudden change in climate and Europe was plunged into an ice age. The wintry iciness of today's Alps spread across northern Europe as ice sheets extended as far south as London, Amsterdam and Berlin. Conditions were ideal for cold-adapted animals, forerunners of musk oxen and reindeer. Woolly mammoth bones dredged from the bottom of the North Sea are evidence that this was once icy tundra. The warm interglacial periods attracted very different creatures: fossil hippos, rhinos, lions and hyenas have been unearthed in London. This thermal pulsing has occurred around twenty times, the last ice age ending 15,000 years ago. Europe now bears the scars of repeated glaciations. Lake Ladoga, Europe's largest freshwater body, is a product of the last thaw and has its own subspecies of seal as well as osprey, moose and beaver. Ibex are ice-age immigrants from Asia, stranded in the European mountains by the receding glaciers. Even the desert sand of Słowiński in Poland can be traced back to glacial debris washed up by the sea. As the ice retreated, the plants and animals associated with modern Europe began to advance north. Those featured include the capercaillie of the northern forests and migrant birds on Germany's wetlands. Modern humans began to settle the coasts alongside otters and seals, and slowly spread along inland waterways, but made little impression on the deciduous forests of the interior.

Europe is home to more than 700 million people, most of them city dwellers. Much of its wildlife has suffered as a result, but efforts are underway to protect and reintroduce some species. Others have exploited new opportunities offered by man-made environments. In Rome, the first metropolis on the continent, winter tourists watch swirling clouds of starlings flocking over the city. Buildings and structures have replaced caves and cliffs as preferred perches and nest sites for some birds, including kestrels and white storks. On a nearby landfill site, griffon vultures and red foxes forage and scavenge food. Wildlife and people are coming into contact more often. Joggers in the woods around Budapest often encounter wild boars, while farmers in the Carpathian Mountains live alongside Europe's biggest populations of bear, wolf and lynx. These predators were hunted to extinction in Western Europe, but are now returning, aided by green corridors such as the European Green Belt and wildlife-friendly development. Beavers have also returned in large numbers due to protection and the clean-up of Europe's polluted rivers. A chemical spill in the 1960s killed all the fish in the Rhine, but now there is a project to reintroduce Atlantic salmon to the river. There are, however, new dangers. Invasive species such as Chinese mitten crabs, Asian long-horned beetles and Japanese knotweed threaten the native flora and fauna. Climate change could also have a dramatic effect on the continent, but Europe's natural history has experienced many such changes in the past

Johannesburg is the commercial centre of South Africa. Since gold was first discovered there, everything has revolved around money and from the 50th floor of Africa's tallest building, The Carlton Towers, there is an all-engulfing view of the city's narrow streets and jungle of concrete and glass. In contrast to Johannesburg, Pretoria grew at a calmer pace and has developed from a Boer farming municipality into South Africa's administrative capital. Located on a hill is the Vortrekker Monument that is a reminder of the Boers' Great Trek and, in 1830, the crucial battle in which they defeated the Zulus. Sun City is a magnificent fantasy world full of African ambience and the Sun City Hotel is the casino that made Sol Kerzner the richest man in South Africa, whereas the futuristic Cascades Hotel derived its name from its wonderful setting of waterfalls, pools and lush plant life. The route travels northeast over the misty and one time heavily defended Drakens Mountains in the direction of the Kruger Park that extends along the border with Mosambique. From Kruger, the journey continues across Swaziland and Kwazulu Natal to Port Elizabeth on the Indian Ocean's south coast. Along the rocky coastline a road leads to the southernmost tip of Africa, the Cape Of Good Hope. For those lucky enough to experience it, the drive on the spectacular mountain road around the Cape is an amazing adventure. One of the many natural wonders of this unique land that unites European influence with African pride.

Situated on the Arabian Peninsula between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, the United Arab Emirates is a fairy-tale of the One Thousand And One Nights. In just a relatively few years the region has been catapulted from the Middle Ages into the 21st century and it is now an international financial centre within an ancient desert region. It contains seven sheikdoms that are united both politically and economically. Dubai, the second largest state in the United Arab Emirates, is a wonderful holiday paradise with a romantic desert and a long history in which the past unites with the present. Fifteen kilometres from Dubai is the tiny Emirate of Sharjah where life continues according to age-old Arabian tradition. Tourism was once popular on this former pirate coast but the Saudi king subsequently prohibited the consumption of alcohol and thus the tourists stayed away. On the western side of the Hajar Mountains an oasis village developed that contains more than two hundred springs and wells. The oasis was once frequently occupied by Saudi Arabia but in 1974 the International Court Of Justice in the Hague ruled against the Saudi occupation. Today, Oman and the United Arab Emirates share the nine oasis villages of the Buraimi Oasis and live together in peace. Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven Emirates and means, Father Of The Gazelle, a name derived from an ancient legend. The seventy three thousand square kilometres of the Abu Dhabi region cover eighty-six per cent of the United Arab Emirates and in the 1960's the city had a population of five thousand that has now grown to almost a million.

Just outside the town of Page in the state of Arizona, a narrow and unimpressive entrance leads into the mysterious world of Antelope Canyon. The Antelope Creek River has over the course of thousands of years cut a fascinating canyon into the red sandstone and created a natural work of art, a true celebration of form and colour, unearthly and of amazing beauty. The Grand Staircase has five different vegetation zones and thus boasts a remarkable variety of indigenous trees and plants. It is divided into three vast areas, the Grand Staircase, the Kaiparowits Plateau and the Escalante Canyons. Geographically, Death Valley is a truly remarkable national park and Badwater is the deepest point in the entire western hemisphere. The bizarre landscape of the mysterious Devil´s Cornfield really does seem to have been scorched by the heat of another planet. But it is actually the relatively high salt content of the terrain that is responsible for its strange and desolate landscape. The Capitol Reef National Park is a mighty section of the earth's crust that extends for around a hundred and sixty kilometres. Today, the numerous sediments that are contained within the stone strata are visible as long, colourful ribbons and strips within the rocks of this region. At Yosemite Falls steep rocks tower up more than seven hundred metres and it is the park's highest and most impressive waterfall. The surrounding forests are also attractive but the most famous sight of the region are the nine waterfalls of Yosemite Valley. The Canyon De Chelly is a land full of myth and legend and also a national monument of Native Indian culture in the midst of today's Navajo Indian reservation.

Irský ostrov je s rozlohou 84 412 km² druhým největším z Britských ostrovů. Omývají jej vody Atlantském oceánu, konkrétně Keltského a Irského moře. Povrch Irska je převážně nížinatý, zejména pak v centrálních oblastech. Hornatiny se vyskytují v blízkosti pobřeží. Nejvyšším vrcholem je Carrauntoohill (1041 m, irsky Carrán Tuathail) v pohoří Macgillycuddy's Reeks. Mezi další významná pohoří patří: Wicklow Mountains na východě a Antrim Plateau v Severním Irsku. Nejdelší řekou nejen Irska, ale i Britských ostrovů je 386 km dlouhá řeka Shannon. Na jejím toku jsou tři velká jezera (po proudu): Lough Allen, Lough Ree a Lough Derg. Největším jezerem ostrova je Lough Neagh v Severním Irsku. Ostrov si vysloužil přezdívku „ Smaragdový ostrov " díky bujné vegetaci,která je zde díky mírnému klimatu a častému jemnému dešti. Pohled na oblast Kerry. Na většině území Irska leží louky a vřesoviště. 15% území pokrývají rašeliniště a 5% rozlohy zaujímají původní listnaté lesy. V zemi překvapivě rostou vavříny, myrty a planiky, které rostou především ve středomoří. Irská fauna už není tak bohatá, jak bývala před příchodem lidí. S jejich příchodem vymizely zdejší populace bobrů, divokých koček, medvědů a vlků. Dnes zde žijí hlavně drobní hlodavci, ptáci a ovce. Vůbec tu nežijí hadi. Nejhůře obdělavatelná půda leží v jihozápadních a západních krajích. Tyto části jsou velmi hornaté, s nádhernými výhledy.

The city of Plymouth is the beginning of a journey through the north eastern region of America, New England, which is where the first European settlers landed in the 17th century after stepping off the Mayflower.The 'Plimouth Plantation' is a reconstruction of the Pilgrim Fathers' original settlement, with 'settlers' in original costume going about their daily routine. In the centre of Boston, Copley Square features the Trinity Church which contrasts with the modern Hancock Tower that dominates the skyline and Park Street Church was where, in 1829, William Garrison gave his first anti-slavery speech. Portsmouth is a quaint little harbour town at the mouth of the Piscataqua River in which the fishing harbour still plays an important role and pretty brick houses are gems of colonial architecture that remain untainted by tourism. Brunswick is a deceptively small town situated at the mouth of the Kennebec River. The main attraction of this 270 year old town is Bowdoin College in which theologian Calvin Stowe taught, husband of Harriet Beecher Stowe who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin. The fishing town of Rockland is one of the largest exporters of lobster in the USA. There's nowhere better to enjoy fresher, tastier and more varied seafood than on this part of the coast. Established in 1919, Acadia National Park extends across most of Mount Desert Island and it was private individuals, particularly the billionaire John Rockefeller, who gifted this land to the State. It is now a collection of conservation areas that assures the preservation of this unique East Coast combination of lakes and mountains. New England is the traditional face of the United States ... and the heart of America's past.

Andalusia in southern Spain is a fantasy land situated between Europe and Africa. In Algarrobo, a white village close to the coast, time seems to have stood still. A place of both inspiration and contemplation. Since Phoenician times the earlier 'Malaca' was a busy trading port that was defended by the Castillo De Gibralforo. The Cathedral, also known as 'La Manquita', symbolises a catholic victory on the former site of a mosque. On the edge of the city centre is the Moorish fortress of Alcazaba that was once a fortified residence on the hills of Castillo. The second largest city in Andalusia also became known as the birthplace of its famous son, world famous artist Pablo Ruiz Picasso. Since the 1950's the modern coastal resort of Torremolinos has attracted mass tourism with a numerous variety of huge hotel skyscrapers, bars and restaurants. In the hilly inland area of the Costa Del Sol is the pretty white mountain village of Mijas. A small hilltop bullfight arena shines bright white along with the houses of the surrounding area. Marbella, the prima donna of the Costa Del Sol, serves as a rendezvous for the stars of stage and screen and a leisure resort for the international jet set. Another short excursion into the mountains near the coast leads to Casares, a sleepy mountain village crowned by the ruins of a Moorish Castle. During the Roman Carthaginian Wars Cadiz played an important role as a trading centre. After the Moors, came the Normans and in 1262, the city fell into the hands of the Christian king, Alfonso. Dreamy harbour towns, cultural metropolises with a Moorish past, Christian buildings and white villages. Beauty in the Garden Of Eden -- that's Andalusia!

Tibet is a relatively little known and mysterious land of snow high up in the Himalayas that borders Nepal, Bhutan and India. It is protected by the highest mountains in the world and is a region that has developed a unique society whose philosophy, art and religious faith have earned much interest and respect. Lhasa is the capital of Tibet and also its largest city. The Barkhor Road extends for eight hundred metres around the Jokhang Temple and nearby Tsuklakhang Square. For the faithful a visit to the Jokhang Temple is the highlight of a long and arduous pilgrimage and the Dalai Lama once sat in its inner courtyard during the monks' annual final examination, which was also a splendid festive event. On the other side of the Chakpori, a small mountain opposite Potala, is the seldom visited Sang Gya Thong Ku Temple that is somewhat hidden away and therefore off the tourist trail. This 'temple of a thousand images of god' is nevertheless very popular among devout Buddhists and is a place of silent prayer. The Yarlung Valley is full of history such as possessing the oldest field in Tibet, as well as the oldest village that is located at the foot of the country's oldest fortress, Yom Bu La Khang, the rock palace of the country's first mystic king. One of the largest monuments in Tibetan architecture is the unique Kumbum Chörten, a three-dimensional mandala that can be entered. Eyes decorate the upper part of the Stupa. The ritual walkabout begins on the lowest level with simple deities then follows the entire Pantheon of Tibet, immortalised in both sculptures and wall paintings. Tibet is still a religiously devout country with a fascinating monastery culture and amazing natural scenery. Tashi Delek! Happiness and Blessings! On the "roof of the world" one is always close to the gods...!
