STEVE BACKSHALL – NORTH ATLANTIC SHARKS
Monday 23 January at 21.15 on Sky Nature and streaming on NOW, also available on demand
After spending a good part of his life diving with sharks from all over the world, Steve Backshall takes us on a discovery of his ”neighbors”. Indeed, the seas around the British Isles are home to over thirty species of shark, every bit as fascinating and mysterious as their global counterparts. The journey begins in the remote Scottish Hebrides, where Steve discovers why whale sharks congregate here in the summer and where a critically endangered stingray lays its huge eggs. He will then meet some of the scientists and conservationists working to protect endangered species and will have the opportunity to film the extremely rare angelfish in West Wales waters. He will later learn that some North Atlantic sharks can glow in the dark and, in Cornwall, he will dive with his favorite shark, the blue shark. The conservation of these animals is threatened by the same dangers – fishing, climate change, pollution and habitat loss – that face sharks in other parts of the world and there is an urgent need for us all to act to protect them.

NAZIS – MUSIC THIEVES
Friday 27 January at 21.15 on Sky Arte and streaming on NOW, also available on demand
In 1940, in a small town near Paris, internationally renowned harpsichordist Wanda Landoswska was completely robbed of her property by the Nazis. Among the scores and musical instruments that the soldiers took away from her was also the piano with which Chopin composed her Preludes. In fact, Hitler had instructed a commando to appropriate paintings, sculptures, books and many other works of art, first confiscating them from Jewish families and then from museums throughout occupied Europe. The aim was to create a museum dedicated to him, but the project was never completed and many assets disappeared. What happened to Chopin’s piano and all the treasures that the Nazis stole between 1940 and 1944?

BORIS PAHOR – THE MAN WHO HAS SEEN TOO MUCH
Friday 27 January at 19.45 on Sky Documentaries and streaming on NOW, also available on demand
This touching documentary tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of Boris Pahor, a Slovenian writer born in cosmopolitan and tolerant Trieste in 1913. After the First World War, when the city became part of Italy and Mussolini came to power, the fascists burned the Slovenian cultural centre, closed schools and banned the speaking of Slovenian in public. During World War II, Boris fought with the Italian army until its surrender in 1943. When he returned to Trieste, shortly before the Nazis took control of the city, he joined the Slovenian resistance, but was betrayed and handed over to the Gestapo and sent to concentration camps. Pahor’s harrowing descriptions are illustrated with impressive drawings by fellow prisoners, creating a unique documentation of conditions in the Nazi death camps. His testimony, along with the details of a shocking field report by British intelligence officer Captain Yurka Galitzine, and the chilling testimony of SS commander Josef Kramer, known as the Beast of Belsen, combine to tell a story raw but really lived.
