United by their love of rip-roaring artfully delivered klezmer, She'Koyokh spin tales of wild goats, unmarried women and broken hearts drawn from the rich folk traditions of Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans. Inspired by wandering nineteenth century klezmorim, She’Koyokh have spent the last decade sponging up the rich folk musics of Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans.

Australia – a continent of natural wonders. This four-part series takes you off to the kingdom of the kangaroo and red rocks with breathtaking aerial footage, riveting super slow motion and extraordinary animal stories. Yet Australia has much more to offer than its red heart: impenetrable jungle in the farthest north-east, bizarre native creatures like the cassowary and tree-kangaroo. In the east lives Australia’s teddy bear, the koala. For the first time, footage from the highest tops of the eucalyptus forest shows how radical and brutal these cuddly koalas really are! In the heat of South Australia, many marsupials have adapted to life underground: quirky wombats build giant tunnel systems, and whenever an enemy approaches they block the entrance with their hefty hindquarters. Down Under is quite unique! The red continent has never been seen as vividly as in this high-quality nature documentary series.
The South American country is home to about 14 percent of the world's species, making it the second most biologically diverse nation on Earth. Teeming with more types of birds and vertebrates than anywhere else on the planet, these creatures have adapted to life in an astonishing array of habitats.
