Three very different landscapes are dominant in northern Scandinavia; the woods stretching to Siberia, the harsh, long coastline of Norway with its mysterious deep fjords all the way to Svalbard, and the inner highlands and mountains shaped by shifting ice ages. In each of these dramatic environments, the series covers a number of iconic species which have adapted to life here including polar bears, brown bears, wolves, elks, walruses and whales. Seasoned local filmmakers Arne Nævra and Torgeir Lande have been studying the wildlife in this region for many years, enduring harsh conditions and ever-present danger to record some of the most breathtaking images ever filmed.

Alzheimers today is the only leading cause of death that cannot be cured, prevented or even slowed. Worse, it’s the only leading cause of death that is on the rise – and not simply because people now live longer. Recent studies show that the increase is absolute across all age groups, and death rates continue to climb. With a new case developing every 69 seconds, scientists are now talking about an Alzheimer’s epidemic. Untangling Alzheimers is a dramatic and inspiring medical investigation driven by presenter David Suzuki’s journey to understand the science of Alzheimers and the surprising new insights into its cause. David has a very personal interest in the disease because his mother, aunt and two uncles died of it. In the film, audiences join David on a revealing journey as he explores the newest breakthroughs in this devastating disease as well as investigating his own chances of contracting the cruel condition.
