Nature

The word nature is derived from the Latin term “natura” literally translated as birth. The all encompassing definition of nature is the natural, physical or material world or universe. Nature is the phenomenon that accompanies the physical world. On a larger scale it varies from subatomic to the cosmic. Nature may also refer to the general realm of various types of living plants and animals, and in some cases to the processes associated with inanimate objects such as the weather.

In other contexts, the variation of the word “nature”, such as “natural” is commonly used to describe the opposite of unnatural, supernatural or synthetic. Today the term is commonly associated with geology and wildlife.

In order for us to be able to study the natural occurrences and its elements, we have devised a categorization according to the properties of those elements. The primary categories are Earth, atmosphere, climate and weather, water, ecosystems, life, matter and energy. Every prime category has an internal division into specific areas, e.g. water is categorized into oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds and streams.

The documentaries and video materials compiled in this category are concerned with the above mentioned occurrences and other various natural phenomena.

Witness the efforts of an environmental activist, who risked his wellbeing and confronted the law, to save one little part of our planet`s lungs. The documentary “Among Giants” follows the story of this brave man and his incredible mission.

See what happens when humans abandon their habitat and all that is left behind are manmade structures. The ecosystem of that place begins the slow process of recovery and the entire flora and fauna can flourish without human interference. The city of Chernobyl has, accidentally, become such a place.

Discover how the Earth, as we know it today, came to exist. From the lifeless rocky surface encircled with boiling lava to the living and breathing green paradise with the abundance of life. The dramatic story of how the Earth was made is still going on.

The expedition lead by Paul Rose goes into the depths of the world`s oceans. See what extraordinary discoveries they made and enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna of the ocean.
