Some of the world’s best cave divers have travelled to the Bahamas Islands to plunge into the unique abyss found in blue holes –underwater caves that can go hundreds or even thousands of feet down and feature a maze of passages and tunnels, which act as liquid time capsules. Led by National Geographic emerging explorer and anthropologist Kenny Broad, a team of divers and archaeologists investigate these caves to unlock the mysteries of an ancient Bahamas teeming with life that quickly vanished, leaving the islands now mostly barren. What caused these animals to disappear, and could 800-year-old human skulls provide the answer? Cave-ins, poisonous gasses and potentially deadly effects from pressure of venturing too deep, cave diving is a dangerous sport – a lesson the team learns firsthand after encountering the remains of a diver wearing a 1970s wet suit and flashlight whose visit to one blue hole proved to be his last.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC begleitet ein Team von deutschen und US-amerikanischen Tauchern bei der Erforschung der legendären „Blue Holes" der Bahama-Inseln, kreisrunde, nach oben offene Unterwasserhöhlen, die bis zu 200 Meter tief sind. Da es am Grunde dieser Schächte keinen nennenswerten Wasseraustausch gibt, tummeln sich hier nur besonders widerstandsfähige Einzeller - doch es finden sich auch Fossilien aus längst vergangenen Erdepochen. Vielfach lagen die jetzt überfluteten Höhlensysteme noch vor wenigen tausend Jahren oberhalb des Meeresspiegels, und so haben sich hier auch die Überreste zahlreicher Tiere und sogar von Menschen erhalten. Unterwasserfilmer Wes Skiles beobachtet das Taucherteam bei seinen aufregenden Expeditionen in die Tiefe und liefert spektakuläre Bilder aus einer bislang nahezu unzugänglichen Welt.
A presentation of the facts and theory surrounding the astronomical phenomenon of "black holes", using the latest in computer-generated imagery. Theories regarding their origin are presented, along with speculation about what lies with and beyond them.
Documentary on nature's ultimate abyss, the black hole. It is the darkest thing in the universe and its gravity is so powerful that not even light can escape. Most start out as brilliant stars which, after millions of years, eventually collapse forming a bottomless pit from which there is no escape. Narrated by actor John Hurt and directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Richard Smith, the program is a journey into interstellar space to explore these mysterious "prisons of light", via an imaginary computer-generated space ship. Guides for the journey include Professor Stephen Hawking, Britain's Astronomer Royal Sir Martin Rees, and Homer Simpson. The program also examines the history surrounding black holes, from the first conception of them in 1859 to the present day.
Pecking Holes In Poles is the 190th animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series.

His boss is not amused and orders Farkle to find the woodpecker or he will lose his job
Bowls Balls Souls Holes investigates cause-and-effect phenomena less easily traceable, such as quantum entanglement, magnetic fields, global warming, and the production of luck. Creating physical experience that transcends the autonomous object and cinematic medium, filmmaker Mika Rottenberg guides us through elaborately constructed physical and metaphysical environments. All activities converge in a Harlem bingo hall where a sequence of numbers opens mechanic portals into an alternate reality. Here, the relationship of cause and effect obeys bizarre laws and characters linked by invisible forces engage in a parapsychological chain of events. These actions move planets, influence global temperature, and shift architecture.
Travel to the edge of space and beyond to discover natures ultimate abyss black holes. Explore where they are found, how they begin, and how it may be possible to harness and use the power they produce. In Monster Black Holes, scientists steadily piece together the complex dynamics of a black holes birth and are also examine the growth of a select few black holes to super massive proportions that dominate the centers of galaxies. As a monster black hole swallows everything in its path, it generates energy that shapes the universe around it in powerful ways. Journey into the heart of a black hole and explore what happens to matter when it falls into a black hole, and whether the Milky Way galaxy will one day come to an end when the black hole at the galaxys center explodes.
Fact is stranger than fiction in this true urban myth.
94-year-old New Yorker, Jack Beers, has broken the age barrier full force. He can do what most young men can, and his diverse lifetime achievements would take many to accomplish. The film begins with Mayor Bloomberg acknowledging Jack, we see Jack's name on the marquee of Radio City Music Hall, and at 94 he rips a telephone book into 4 pieces with his hands.

When her sister disappears from a camping trip, nine year old Fae is left wondering if the scary stories about her new home are true.
An experimental short in which the degradation of film is shown over time.
How can scientists study a faraway black hole that emits no light? By observing its quasar. As objects get pulled onto the accretion disk orbiting a supermassive black hole, friction creates a bright light known as a quasar. In this video, researchers use a “galaxy-sized lens” to analyze light from a distant quasar—revealing a supermassive black hole with a truly voracious appetite.
Peolpe all around the world show off secert swiming holes in there part of the world.
