World's Most Dangerous Shark?
Nat Geo Wild (DStv 182 / StarSat 221)
Despite a reputation as ruthless maneaters, not a lot is known about oceanic whitetip sharks... until now.
Oceanic Whitetips are best known as the shark responsible for the carnage that followed the 1945 sinking of the USS Indianapolis.
Today, humans have all but wiped them out and the survivors struggle to find enough to eat.
But in an astounding feat of adaptation, this fearsome predator appears to have completely overhauled its hunting strategies and teamed up with another species to find food.
By some estimates, the Oceanic Whitetip has attacked and eaten nearly 2,000 humans — more than the Great White, Tiger and Bull sharks combined.
But could the most dangerous of all sharks be even more dangerous than previously thought?
Follow professor Yannis Papastamatiou as he dives with Oceanic Whitetips to uncover these mysterious sharks' secrets.
See how he tracks the creatures for a clearer picture of how they hunt and feed.
Highway to the Arctic – Canada's Ice Roads
Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
Every winter, ice roads are built across hundreds of miles in Canada's far north, connecting frozen rivers and lakes, and stretching up to the very northern tip of the country by the Arctic Ocean.
For the people living in secluded villages these "ice highways" are vital for the transport of goods for the entire year.
The ice roads make it easier to reach remote hunting grounds and are at times, the meeting point for fairs that celebrate life and culture.
Canada's Ice Roads connects these people to each other.
Until April, trucks are coming up here all the way from down south, bringing supply goods for the whole year to these locals, and life changes until the ice roads are melting again and disappearing into the ocean.
For decades, ice roads have been built across the icy tundra in Canada's far north, the Northwest Territories, every single winter.
These so-called "ice highways" lead to a remote and inhospitable world that at the same time impresses with its raw beauty.
It is a cold primeval world, almost unimaginable for Europeans these days, yet people are actually living there.
The locals, who have settled in remote villages up here, have adjusted to the Arctic nature; the ice roads are their temporary connection to the outside world.
While life in summertime can be tough and arduous, winter allows the locals to replenish their stocks, easily reach remote hunting grounds and turns the ice roads into a place for fairs where people can celebrate life and their culture.
