The Mighty Atom
CuriosityStream (DStv 185)
The incredible true story of Joseph Greenstein, who at 5'4" became the world's strongest man.
Stopping an airplane from taking off with his hair, bending steel with his hands, biting through nails; he achieved impossible feats of strength and may have been the inspiration for Superman.
Given a death sentence as a young child, Greenstein would go on to create and master unusual feats of strength.
An amazing tale of human potential.
Hippos After Dark
For a dominant hippo bull, his territory is his empire. By day he languishes confidently in his watery river habitat.
He's aggressive and territorial and his rule is indisputable. But by night, dark forces grip the land and control slips to the predators.
Now the hippos are at a disadvantage; they have huge bodies to fuel and most of their feeding takes place on land... and at night.
To get to their grazing lands they must leave the safety of the river and run the gauntlet of the flesh-eaters.
