Dvojka TV Channel
In March, in Wednesday's broadcast windows of natural history documents at Dvojka, we will broadcast the following documents in connection with the 200th anniversary of Greece's independence:
3. 3. 2021 - Secrets of the Mediterranean - Life in extremes
the first run - 1st part of a two-part documentary:
Inhospitable rocks, blue sea and sandy beaches - this is how we get to know the Mediterranean Sea. But appearances are misleading: the Mediterranean is constantly changing. The continents are getting closer. Animals that must survive in such extreme conditions must look for ways to escape the pitfalls of these areas. Between deserts and volcanoes - it's life in extremes.
17. 3. 2021 - Secrets of the Mediterranean - Life on the border
the first run - 2nd part of a two-part documentary:
The contours of the Mediterranean have changed and continue to change throughout history. The African continent near Gibraltar was once connected to Europe. But when this bridge collapsed, the space between Africa and Europe filled up and sea levels rose. Today, the Mediterranean Sea connects the Red Sea with the Suez Canal. This route allows the animals to reach the Mediterranean area - but where they cause problems.
24. 3. 2021 - Wild Greece - View for the Gods (rerun)
Greece is a country of unique contrasts. There are many animals that have already disappeared from other parts of Europe. it is a land of archaic relations and ubiquitous history - the history of our civilization.
In the first part, we will visit one of the largest canyons in Europe – Vikos.
