After DOC MARTIN: THE MOVIE but before there was DOC MARTIN the series, there was DOC MARTIN AND THE LEGEND OF THE CLOUTIE. The Doc (Martin Clunes) is in need of a bit of distance from the small village of Port Issac, so when the local real estate agent shows him the ramshackle, middle-of-nowhere property Tregrunnt Farm, it's love at first sight. Problem is the Bowden family from London also have their eye on the property for holiday cottages. After being hoodwinked in the deal and increasingly desperate to buy the property, Doc decides to try and spook the family into leaving with the help of the legendary Beast of Bodmin. He returns to prowl around Tregrunnt with an absurd beast printmaking device, but the exercise is doomed and Doc decides to change tactics. Rather skeptically, he resorts to an old Cornish witch's trick — a cloutie; a small ribbon of cloth which, if attached to a tree and wished upon, will make wishes come true. But the caster of the spell must beware — what you wish for will come back at you threefold.

NOVA

Carved from a hundred million pounds of stone, soaring effortlessly atop a spider web of masonry, Gothic cathedrals are marvels of human achievement and artistry. But how did medieval builders reach such spectacular heights? Consuming the labor of entire towns, sometimes taking a hundred years to build, these architectural marvels were crafted from just hand tools and stone. Many now teeter on the brink of catastrophic collapse. To save them, an international team of engineers, architects, art historians and computer scientists searches the naves, bays and bell-towers for clues to how the dream of these heavenly temples on earth came true.

Nature
Wed, 12/26/2012 - 8:00pm

Thick forests, vast wetlands, deep chasms - this is a wild, inaccessible place that belongs more to myth than reality. The landscape looks as if it was taken straight from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. But here, there are neither orcs nor elves; rather, bears and wolves. This is not Middle Earth; rather it is middle Europe - the Balkans. Through the centuries, this land has burned its way into the soul and spirit of its people. The jagged contours have thrown long, dark shadows over the history of the peninsula, always in the middle, between forces of the East and the West. It's as if the bloody history of the Balkans conspired to conceal its natural wonders. The landscape is still untouched, and in it are wild animals that have all but vanished from the rest of Europe.
