    Iceland is a land of glaciers and volcanoes. This island with its black soil was still wild and uninhabited when the first Vikings arrived in the 9th century. The first colonists settled in the bay of Reykjavik and soon spread across the whole territory. 

    From the first Icelandic parliament in Thingvellir to the myths that endure today, the arrival of these pioneers would change this isle of ice and fire forever.

    In the Tigray region of Ethiopia, Orthodox Christians confront their fears and baptize their children in churches perched high in the sky. At 800 meters, the troglodyte church of Abuna Yemata Guh is possibly the most inaccessible church on the planet. Every day in this extraordinary place, men and women risk their lives to edge along the narrow crest to place their dead in the cavities in the rock, and to baptize their newborns on the top of the mountain.

    On the day of the baptism, Khasa and her baby leave the village and head for the church. Draped in the traditional white, they walk for more than an hour to the mountain. At the bottom, the young mother scales the rock face, her feet and hands bare. The climb is difficult and extremely dangerous.
     
    In the church, the priest and his assistant are waiting. The murals and ceiling of the church date from the 14th century and have been perfectly preserved. They are considered to be the most exceptional in the region of Tigray. The ceremony begins…

    IN SIBERIA WITH THE EXILES FROM LAKE BAIKAL

    In the outer reaches of Siberia, the frozen shores of Lake Baikal are swept by a bitter wind. Those particularly hostile conditions inspired the Russian power to deport its enemies there from the 16th century onwards.

    In the outer reaches of Siberia, the frozen shores of Lake Baikal are swept by a bitter wind. Those particularly hostile conditions inspired the Russian power to deport its enemies there from the 16th century onwards. 

    There, these exiles – from religious minorities and Russian intellectual circles – build villages, develop their own culture and spread their ideas as far as Irkutsk; the city was soon nicknamed the Siberian Paris.

    Quito, the capital of Ecuador, seems imprisoned among volcanoes. At its heart, the city has some impressive and richly-decorated churches which bear witness to an auspicious period for South American architecture.

    Baroque art came from Europe with the colonists and acquired another dimension here in contact with Amerindian culture. So much so that it became a stamp of Ecuadorean cultural identity.

    Hemiones, or wild donkeys in Asia, inhabit barely 1% of their original habitat. To prevent their disappearance, a spectacular and risky rescue plan has been implemented. 

    The aim: to reintroduce the species into the Turgai steppe in Central Asia, from where it has disappeared for a century, by transporting a few dozen captured specimens by helicopter.

    287 - VIRUNGA, ENDANGERED GORILLAS

    Virunga National Park lies in eastern Congo, on the borders of Rwanda. It is a place rife with conflicts that go beyond its borders. It is home to the last mountain gorillas, which are the subject of much envy in times of war.

    Virunga National Park lies in eastern Congo, on the borders of Rwanda. It is a place rife with conflicts that go beyond its borders. It is home to the last mountain gorillas, which are the subject of much envy in times of war. 

    The lives of these 500 endangered individuals seem more precious to the international community than those of the local residents who are deprived of access to the most basic resource for their survival: the park's lumber. Caught between poachers and rebel groups, poorly seen by the locals, the park's rangers put their lives at risk every day to protect the gorillas. But will they succeed in the long term?

    In the freezing cold of the taiga, on the borders of China, lives the powerful Siberian tiger – the largest of its kind.

     Thanks to a state protection program, its population – once decimated by hunting – now numbers some 560 individuals. But a new phenomenon is now threatening its survival, an effect of wild deforestation from China. With the massive felling of Mongolian oaks and the reduction of glands – wild boars’ main food source – they perish en masse and the tiger is in turn deprived of its basic food. Hungry, he then becomes a danger to humans...

    Among the Sámi people of Finnmark County in Norway's far north, reindeer herding is an ancestral activity that has long been the only source of income and the main source of food for this last indigenous people of Europe.

    This work has given rise to a hobby that is widely acclaimed by all: reindeer driving, a fun sport that even has its own world championship. Every year, the Sámi people gather at the Easter festival in Kautokeino to celebrate it. Very few women participate, but Anne Risten Sara has already been crowned multiple times...

    This beneficial plant with multiple therapeutic virtues is mainly picked in Markstein – in the Vosges Mountains. Most of the harvest goes to Weleda Laboratories, an international manufacturer of cosmetics and natural medicines. Clément Urion of the "Ferme du Bien-Être" (Wellbeing Farm) is one of the only people authorized to harvest the miraculous plants; it is a strictly regulated activity that requires a lot of expertise...
