[edit] Information

This HD series uncovers the astonishing similarities and sharp differences between two of earth's richest meeting points between continents - bridges where vastly different animal populations intermingle during their eternal quest for survival. These geographical bridges between huge land masses create unique places where the flora and fauna of two continents intermingle. The narrow strip of land connecting the continents of the Americas is an authentic Noah´s ark with huge number of species, all of them coming from south and north and making their home Central America, a geological newcomer, when compared to the age of the land masses north and south. Africa and Europe are separated by the narrowest of sea passages at Gibralter and a the border territory of the Iberian penisula. This region features the richest biodiversity in Europe, with its umbilical cord to the African continent. Through the series, we encounter species at their best, from intimate situations, to predation and action scenes. Spectacular blue chip filming provides evidence from the field while graphics will help to understand the geological process that shaped these two areas of our planet, and how the species colonize them. Six episodes that will inmerse us in the vastness life exuberance of these unique places on earth. A series that conclusively proves that diversity blooms whenever its given a fighting chance.

[edit] The Great Bridge

When the Isthmus of Panama closed four million years ago, the two largest oceans of the planet were separated and massive geological events created a unique place that would grow some of the most fascinating life on Earth! Intense volcanic activity created what is now known as Central America, and it began to be colonized by amazing creatures that gradually colonized every new island. Discover five incredibly diverse regions within this ecosystem: the wetlands of the Caribbean, the Southern Caribbean, the North Pacific, the Corcovado Peninsula, and the central mountain range.

[edit] Tracks in the Jungle

Central America is home to some of the most breathtaking animals in the world. In vast and dramatic forests, several dynamic species of animal cohabitate from the fierce jaguar to the clever monkey. Let these ambassadors of the wild show you the splendors of their homes!

[edit] Nature's Erector Set

This is a long, mountainous passage where hundreds of thousands of species of plants and animals live. The umbilical cord that linked the continents also created one of the richest and most diverse places on earth the Caribbean rainforests. These exotic destinations are the home to the magnificent and lonely Quetzals. Explore the Pacific coast of Central America and take flight with these rollicking spectacles of nature.

[edit] The Old World Connection

This program explores the formation of the Iberian Peninsula and its introduction of fascinating plants and animals to the ecosystems of Central America. With warm sheltering tropics in its southern regions and a mountainous north of wet and old Euro-Siberian forests, the Iberian Peninsula contains a variety and distinctive character all its own. Come along and marvel at the strange, beautiful riches it holds!

[edit] Forests Between Two Worlds

From the placid wood grouse, to large herbivores like the chamois and the Spanish ibex, to dynamic predators like bears and wolves, this program chronicles life in the animal worlds of this lush and varied region. Learn how two opposing worlds were joined in a single territory that remained isolated by the Pyrenees Mountains. The results are a collection of forgotten places, exciting animals, and unique splendors.

[edit] The Mediterranean Puzzle

The flow of species from Mediterranean Iberia and Africa creates a rich variety of fauna that leaves the land and landscape deeply transformed. During the summer, eagles, vultures, storks and Passeriformes fly from Africa to Europe. Some species make it to the peninsula without crossing the barrier of the Pyrenees, but other African travelers conquer the continent little by little: from the black-winged kite, to the genet, to the Egyptian mongoose, to the chameleon. This program takes a close look at this visiting population.
