Nearly 100 years have passed since the world was catapulted into one of the worst conflicts it has ever seen. World War I was dubbed the "Great War" and rightfully so. It was the first war to affect most of the globe and was the first total war, with battles fought on land, at sea and, for the first time, in the sky with newly minted aircraft technology used to drop bombs on unsuspecting civilians and soldiers.

The Unknown War was a landmark television documentary series about the Soviet struggle against, and ultimate victory over, the Nazi war machine. Hosted and narrated by Academy Award winner Burt Lancaster, this sprawling series features rare and stunning footage recorded by Soviet camera crews on the front lines, most of it unseen since its original broadcast 30 years ago. From the June 22, 1941, invasion of the Soviet Union to the Russians’ victorious march into Berlin in 1945, the devastating battles in the air, at sea and on land are detailed with astonishing images. These stories of heroism, savagery and suffering from what the Russians call The Great Patriotic War will shed new light on the Red Army’s massive contribution to the Allies’ defeat of Hitler in World War II.

With their thrilling rapids, drastic jumps in height and deep canyons, the mountain streams in the Northern Caucasus have always attracted extreme sport lovers and those looking for active leisure. One such attraction is the Belaya River, which passes through a series of different landscapes and is known for its temperamental flow — one that constantly changes as it travels from its source to the mouth of the river. This river also hosts a number of international rafting competitions every year, but you don’t have to be a professional in order to test these rapids. Even a novice can try their hand at water tourism here, where interesting canyoning routes abound.

The mountains of the Caucasus form a magical border between Europe and Asia. Filmmaker Henry M. Mix and his crew spent over a year in Russia's highest mountains. The result is an impressive documentary about the natural wonders to be found between the Black and Caspian Seas. The wild mountain landscape with its extreme climate has created a unique world of flora and fauna and makes the Caucasus one of the world's 25 most significant centres of biodiversity. Mountain bison, Caucasus snowcock and tur are only found here. Under the snow-covered main ridge live Saiga antelopes, long-eared hedgehogs and short-toed snake eagles. Epic footage, breathtaking aerial photography and hitherto unseen behaviour of rare animals – Greater Caucasus has its viewers spellbound from the first minute on.
