Scotland, between myth and mysteries

“Sail Caledonia”, a ‘raid’ by sail and oars through the very heart of Scotland, provides our voyage of discovery of this magnificent country. During the crossing, taking us the length of the Caledonian Canal, which joins the Malin Sea on the West of Scotland to the North Sea on the East, we discover the grandeur of the landscapes, the traditions of Scotland and the pride of its people in their country. As part of the myths and legends of this part of the Highlands, the Loch Ness monster will raise questions and add mystery. Deeply anchored in Scottish culture, tradition holds sway in its cradle of music, dance, castles and Highland Games, all of...

In the skies of Polynesia

In another life they were fighter pilots, mechanics with Boeing or military instructors. Today they have realized their dream: to set up in Polynesia and fly over one of the most beautiful regions in the world. Stéphane and Vincent are aces of the air… they teach stunt flying to visiting tourists and the inhabitants of the islands.

A UNESCO world heritage listed site, the Caledonian lagoon owes its dazzling health to an extremely low pressure of human presence. That’s because the vast territory of Caledonia (the main island is 400 km long) has only 250,000 inhabitants. As a result the lagoon offers huge, totally virgin spaces. A veritable inland sea, the blue Caledonian jewel case contains a host of habitats and ecosystems: islets, sand bars, sunken reefs, mangroves, etc.… oases of marine life that teem with species and provide a fabulous...

Hanged

Every morning in France, millions of people settle into a comfortable office routine, meanwhile there are others who climb hundreds of meters off the ground for a living. They are builders and window cleaners. Ten thousand workers suspended in the air like acrobats. They are called "rope access technicians” because their life is hanging by a thread. A rope that is only a few inches in circumference allows them to climb the highest buildings and still connects them to life on the ground. In the void, danger is omnipresent; any careless mistake can be fatal. Join us as we climb up to meet these workers of the extreme.
