Patagonia: Torres Del Paine (#103) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Torres del Paine Park in the far southern Andes of Patagonia is remote and inaccessible. For adventurers it's the "edge" destination. Art's images tell a story of nature at its wildest - of a place where jagged peaks scrape the sky, icebergs catch the light, guanacos watch for pumas and Andean condors rule the skies.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Mongolia: Mountain to Steppe (#212) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Known for its arid steppes, skilled nomadic horsemen and Genghis Khan, a visit to Mongolia feels like a trip back in time. At the annual Naadam Festival, contestants vie to be the victor in the centuries-old pursuits of wrestling, archery and horseracing. In episode twelve, Art Wolfe pursues prehistoric wild horses as they roam the steppe; rides in the mountains with a Kazakh tribesman who hunts with golden eagles; and catches up with nomadic reindeer herders at their summer camp near the Siberian border.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Japan: Hokkaido and Honshu (#201) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

The image many of us have of Japan is congested and kinetic. But Japan has a wild side. In winter, beyond its crowded cities, the country delivers quiet, unexpected natural beauty. In the second season opener, Art Wolfe ventures north to the remote region of Hokkaido to view iconic red-crested cranes; south to the mountains to take a dip in Nagano's hot springs with mischievous macaque snow monkeys; and journeys on to the sacred temples of Mt. Fuji and Koyosan on a photographic pilgrimage.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Iceland: Earth, Air, Fire and Water (#213) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

A land of geysers, glaciers, volcanoes and rough-hewn coastlines: Nowhere else on Earth do the four elements collide in such dramatic fashion as in Iceland. Art captures dramatic expressions of the planet's geomorphology using composition, pattern and light to create a striking portrait of a volatile and dynamic landscape.
