Mystery of the Fairy Circles
Rankkasateen jälkeen Namibin aavikon peittää paksu ruohomatto. Sen lomasta erottuu selvästi tuhansia pyöreitä, punaisia läiskiä. Näitä arvoituksellisia hiekkaympyröitä esiintyy sisämaassa aina Etelä-Afrikasta Angolaan. Ihmeellisiä paljaita läiskiä on alettu kutsua noidankehiksi, mutta mitä ne ovat? Ne saattavat olla mineraaliyhdisteiden, myrkyllisten kasvien tai jopa termiittien aikaansaannosta. Tai ehkä läiskät on synnyttänyt meteoriitti. Tämä dokumentti paljastaa noidankehien hämmästyttävän salaisuuden.

A Year in the Wild
Jakso 5, kausi 1. Traversing all landscapes around the world for one year, we see how the seasons affect different parts of the world at different times - and how various animals cope.

Later still in the year, the Northern territory’s temperature drops bitterly below zero, but climate changes means the ice forms more slowly than ever before.
