it's just a scientific endeavor but a personal one. what winds of fate brought the young scientists to the by calibration it all began with a minor research trip. here quite by chance i came up with the idea of. the world's oceans there are a lot of organisms that exposed to the light of a certain spectrum range emit light of a different range and i wondered if this was also the case with the lake. in short discovered luminescent crustaceans in by coles waters. serious research of by kal only began in the seventeenth century before traveled

5:35 am
first impression i had of by cow which is in fact true to this day was the extreme weather. if it weren't for divine intervention the young scientist wouldn't be able to work at bike for several days heavy downpours prevented even to leave his house his research was on the verge of shutting down he might just as well have packed up and headed home. the weather was terrible during our first week here. torrential then three llamas came in. for good weather on the first day it was pouring the second day the weather did improve. pierrots surround us every month. on.

nuclear power station in japan which was washed away by a huge wave. fortunately here the earthquake couldn't produce such a tsunami. is too small. and in two thousand and eight days before the earthquake we registered some fundamental changes in the election magnetic field well money. that we had never observed before any other case the. only scientific achievements the neutrino detector has been dropped to a depth of one kilometer into the lake. thanks to the pure clear water of baikal the device is able to detect many mysteries not just on the water but also out in space discoveries of this kind are impossible and salty ocean water.
5:40 am
detector is designed to help us explore the history or universe. find out how we began. what is happening to it now you know what will happen to it if you can the future. is only possible if you watch the streams of unique particles cold neutrinos. they can provide us with the information of what was there when the universe began.

5:44 am
screaming. fire and stop. the spirits of. water fills the rift. but in reality. the theory is. this constantly. is the result of the movement of to. scientists agree that by. making. larger and larger. as a lake existed for as long as. lakes usually last for no more than fifteen thousand yes after. they simply dry out and that's been the case for millions of years this lake though was formed long before human history began remarkably the water content
5:45 am
has undergone almost no changes atoll. the lake is very deep and the water is clear and saturated with oxygen to the deepest parts. and yet it has never changed. a land of science discoveries and the unique nature seemingly frozen in time but michael the present live side by side with the spirits of the past just like the lake itself locals preserve their own mysteries and traditions. local folklore legends and rituals with great respect. i am convinced they are absolutely necessary here these rights all date back many more years than many of the scientific research projects her yet

a powerful filter that cleans before it gets into the lake. will continue working. how the river bed. changed. developing and changing. very important. rich with a constantly circulating from the bottom up that keeps itself clean. and safely be drunk straight from.
5:51 am
here. this unique nature. has when you emotional states. by cal through its beauty individuality and energy can reconcile science with man's belief in supernatural powers. scientists might look for answers to any question but it doesn't mean that everything will be explained one day. that's a completely different approach towards goals of science differ from those of folklore. you can't escape these legends like the fisherman who carry out their rituals every time before they leave harbor.
5:52 am
the god that needs to be placated we should treat him to a little wine or even if you feel like it drink some yourself. oh there's one. where i've never seen anything like this before. so many in just one that. are just about fifty or sixty you can tell by the way. local fisherman firmly convinced that bike will give a good catch when people treated with respect. not only the oldest but it's also the deepest lake in the world with a depth of one thousand six hundred forty two meters. somewhere on the lake then

the treasures of the russian empire. one legend has it that in the times of the civil war in russia at the beginning of the twentieth century the ship carrying the gold reserves of the russian empire sank somewhere in this area. no one has found these treasures yet but still being made to this day large expeditions are organized cutting edge technology is used and various maps are examined everything possible is being done to find the sunken gold but no one has been lucky so far by cal continues to play hide and seek with. popular one we had decided to have a go at it and during that one submersion we had about twelve accidents that we had never had before the first the weather was one in the forecast was good but once we had reached the spot the weather changed and then it turned out that we had somehow
5:54 am
lost the directions we had specially printed out and once we had reached the bottom . to top it off when we were rising from the bottom. that was to pick us up vessel. and was damaged so i understood then that up above we were on the right track to find in this culture but by call it was resolved to keep it that you were the one. you'll see if he isn't too eager to leave but his wife and two young daughters are waiting for him at home so many things are still to be done and so much about bike while still needs to be unraveled. because of people warned me that once i came to lake baikal my life would change completely i would fall in love with it and would long to come back. i never thought that this place would really affect me so deeply thought of the period i spent here has been one of the most interesting and dynamic stages of my life consuming fire and i will
5:55 am
certainly look for an opportunity to return to lake baikal from the studio. the olympic torch is on its epic journey to such. one hundred twenty three days. through two thousand nine hundred ton two cities of russia. relayed by fourteen thousand people or sixty five thousand killing. in a record setting trip by land air sea and others face. a limpet torch relay. on our team and our two dogs come going to.

shifting sands and alliances advances and reversals outside military interventions in stalemate these are among some of the descriptions that apply to the middle east since the start of the arab spring what are we experiencing in this church region the end of the west neocolonial border for nearly instability and violence with no end in sight. for some. moments all i want to. say got something that is quite simply a mess. place was no way oh. clearly they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. and sold to the u.s. or turned over to the u.s. for. the sole that could be buried alive. was saved with great effort. and they wanted to turn me into a terrorist so it was they wanted me to admit that i was
5:57 am
a member of al qaeda the taliban but i fought with them. not the time i didn't even know what al qaeda is nevertheless there are people. brave enough to start a fight. something's going to be done that's going to be done by me and has been our. short amount of time do it but it's going to impact me i'd be prosecuted but it's going to impact. the wife my daughter. the one time a tramp. on r.g.p. . exactly what happened that day i don't know but a woman i killed. piers later is when i got arrested for. for a crime i did not do. we have numerous cases where police officers lie about polygraph results. innocent people take interest the police officers don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation
