The Human Body: Pushing the Limits

The Human Body: Pushing the Limits

The human body is engineered for strength, power and endurance. Bone is sturdy as concrete but flexible and light enough to resist breaking. Our muscles and joints have far greater strength and endurance than we know. Marvel at extraordinary tales of human strength told with stunning see-through "anatomy in motion."

Produced by Discovery Communications Inc. Hi-def Cinema from CineMuse. Running time: 30 minutes

Stories of BC Species at Risk

Stories of BC Species at Risk

British Columbia is home to more wild plant and animal species than any other province in Canada. Alarmingly, 1,900 species are considered "at risk." Four short films tell the stories of the western rattlesnake, the Duskywing butterfly, the barn swallow and the Oregon spotted frog. The films follow the biologists who study these species in their habitats and seek to protect them. Habitat loss is the greatest threat to BC's biodiversity.

A Wilderness Committee/Vancouver Foundation co-production. Running time: 28 minutes

Dinosaur Revolution

Dinosaur Revolution

A brutal encounter with an angry Sauropod prevents a young male Alosaurus from ever becoming king of the jungle. Abandoned by his mother and too injured to be a top predator, this male gets his meals from a watering hole where unsuspecting creatures come to nourish themselves. Even so, this opportunist must still contend with the elements, protective parents and larger predators in order to eke out a living on the island that will one day be known as Portugal.

Recommended for 8 years +. Produced by Discovery Communications. Hi-def Cinema from Cinemuse. Running time: 30 minutes

Deconstructing Dinner: Honey

What's missing in your honey? Take a look beyond the grocery shelf to the source of the sweet stuff, as we trace the pathways of honey production–from flower to plate. 

Produced by ichannel.ca and filmed as part of "Better Bees, Better Honey." Running time: 24 minutes
