Super Hummingbirds (#3401H) Duration: 56:46 SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

With high speed camerawork and breakthrough new science, we enter the fast-paced world of hummingbirds as never before. Speed is their middle name. Their lives are moving faster than the eye can see. They possess natural born super powers that enable them to fly backwards, upside-down, and float in mid-air. And for the first time, we see them mate, lay eggs, fight, and raise families in intimate detail. They are great athletes, tender mothers, brave in combat, and up for any challenge. They are Super Hummingbirds, the smallest and most brilliant birds on earth.

My Congo (#3402) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Vianet Djenguet has lived half of his life in Europe, yet his heart still lies in his homeland, his Congo. As a successful wildlife cameraman, Djenguet is returning to his roots to reveal the beauty and majesty of his country and the people within. His journey will be one of self-discovery as he travels up the Congo River toward his ancestral home, meeting an abundance of weird and wonderful characters along the way, both animal and human. Finally, Djenguet is able to give his beloved homeland the glorious spotlight it deserves and discovers an even deeper connection with this place than he could have ever imagined. "You haven't really travelled until you experience a place like the Congo," says Djenguet.

Giraffes: Africa's Gentle Giants (#3403) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

What does it take to relocate a herd of wild giraffes in Africa? One man, his family, and a band of enthusiastic helpers are about to find out. Their journey will take them across the wild heart of Uganda, crossing the mighty Nile River. The size of this operation cannot be underestimated, particularly when your cargo is so precious. That's because these are no ordinary giraffes, they are in fact the world's rarest. Any mistake could be costly, not only for the giraffes being moved but also for an entire species.
