  • The Hidden Life of Trees – by Peter Wohllben

Forester and author Peter Wohlleben believes  the forest is a social network. He draws on ground breaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers.

Trees live on a different time scale than us. The trees in forests are slow growers. One of the oldest trees in the world, in Sweden, is over 9,500 years old. Trees also pass electrical impulses to each other. Some trees release a chemical in the air, warning other tress of danger. This allows the other trees to release toxic chemicals to protect themselves.

  • Barbarians – Secrets of the Dark Ages (2002) ITV – 3 episodes

History’s Hells Angels
Richard Rudgley traces the legacies of the Huns, Vandals and Goths, looking at both the migrant tribes, and the pre-existing tribes, to ask whether the “dark ages” represent a resurfacing of much older tribal lines.
Sites in Austria show how sophisticated pre-Roman communities had become with evidence of stunning craftsmanship and sophisticated farming techniques which defy the image of a mindless rabble we have come to accept without challenge.

In a Time of Shadows
It is the time when the Anglo-Saxons impose their culture and their authority on the Northern reaches of Europe. It is a time when we discover that the first Englishmen were, in fact, Germans.
These Northern people enjoyed a golden age unaffected by Rome and just 30 years after the Romans relinquished Britain, the “Anglo-Saxons” made their move. We look at the lasting influence of Saxon leaders like Alfred the Great, and his blue print for social justice.

Out of the Darkness
The third assault on the tattered remains of Roman civilisation came from even further North, where the melting glacial ice had created immense sheltered fjords, leaving its inhabitants little choice but the sea.
Long before Nelson, these fearless navigators understood that dominion over the oceans was the key to their ambitions. Where the Romans expanded incrementally, the Vikings adopted a bolder, more aggressive approach.
