Episode 6 : “Mammoth Journey”

Filming locations: Yukon, Canada
30,000 Years Ago

The sixth episode takes place during the last Ice Age. It starts in the peak of the summer. The North Sea has become a grassy plain because the ice at the polar caps has caused the sea levels to drop significantly. Grazing on the plain are herds of Woolly Mammoth, Saiga antelope, and European bison. A clan of humans (Cro-Magnons) is also there spending the summer.

The central focus of the episode is the migration of the herd of mammoth as they travel 400 kilometers from the North Sea to the Swiss Alps for the winter and then back again in the spring. As the mammoth herd migrates south, the episode shows two large deer, the Megaloceros, fighting for rights to a harem of females. As the male Megaloceros fight, a group of humans ambushes them, killing one.

A mother mammoth and her baby are separated from the herd, but survive a stalking Cave Lion. Eventually the herd of mammoth reach the Swiss Alps and the mother mammoth and baby rejoin the herd. The episode also depicts a clan of Neanderthals, who have especially evolved to survive in the cold climate. One is charged by a Woolly Rhinoceros, but escapes, in part because of his stocky constitution.

The climax of the episode is when the clan of Neanderthals attacked the herd of mammoth as they turn back to the north. The Neanderthals are gifted hunters who are able to chase a couple of mammoths off a cliff by using fire and weapons.

Episode 5 : “Sabre-tooth”

Filming Location: Brazil
1 Million Years Ago

The fifth episode shows the strange fauna of the isolated continent of South America and explores the effects of the Great American Interchange, which had happened 1.5 million years earlier. Since South America had drifted apart from Antarctica 30 million years ago, many unique mammals had evolved, including the Doedicurus: an armoured glyptodont that had a cannon ball-sized spiked club on a bony tail; the Macrauchenia, a long-limbed litoptern, somewhat resembling a humpless camel with a short trunk; and Megatherium, a very large ground sloth.

Before the continents of South America and North America collided, an 8 foot tall predatory “Terror Bird”, Phorusrhacos, had reigned as top predator. However, the great cats, migrating from the north, soon displaced them as top predators. The episode focuses on a male Smilodon, a sabre-toothed cat, named Half Tooth, whose leadership of a pride is threatened by two males who are brothers and work together against him.

The rival males ultimately chase off Half Tooth (actually Half Tooth backs off wisely without any serious injuries, feeling that the two males would be too strong for him), kill his cubs, and take over his pride. Next, the episode shows the Smilodon cats hunting down Macrauchenia and trying to protect the young from the two brothers. In the background, “Terror Birds” still hunt, but give way to the Smilodon.

However, a Megatherium,who wanted to eat meat as diet supplement, charges the pride of Smilodon, in order to eat some of the carrion. In the process, the Megatherium kills the dominant rival male, enabling Half Tooth to return, kill the other male and reclaim his territory.

Episode 3 : “Land of Giants”

Filming Location: Mexico and Arizona
25 Million Years Ago

The third episode takes place during the late Oligocene, in Mongolia, where there were seasonal rains followed by a long drought. It tells the story of a mother Paraceratherium, a massive hornless rhinoceros that was the largest land mammal to have ever lived.

The episode first shows the mother Indricothere giving birth, and then tending to the male calf as it matures. While giving birth, the mother defends the helpless calf from several Hyaenodon, large creodont predators.

Also, the mother’s old calf tries to come back but is chased away. It gives a snapshot into the future of the calf. The mother raises her calf for three years, but eventually chases it away after she mates with another male.

The episode then chronicles the young Paraceratherium’s travels until it reaches adulthood, including encounters with Cynodictis, and large aggressive Entelodon, which are distant relatives to the modern-day pig.

Watch Top BBC Comedy Series ‘Coupling’ Free Online On WOWtv!

September 12, 2008

Two’s company. Three’s a crowd… So what do you do with six? Being single isn’t easy. But at least you’ve got your friends. But what happens when one of your friends falls in love with one of your friends’ friends?

 

Coupling features six thirty-something mates (involved, formerly involved or looking to become more intimately involved with each other) who get down to the basics of what works in the romance department. Finding themselves in bizarre and compromising situations, they reveal their deepest secrets, confuse the clearest issues and generally try to make their way across the minefield that is love.

Characters on Coupling

Steve

Before he met and fell for Susan, Steve had spent some time trying to finish with the ‘unflushable’ Jane.The main reason he couldn’t do it was that she refused to accept his attempts to finish with her – oh, and she also kept suggesting sex.

 

 

Jane

The ‘unflushable’ Jane is completely in love with Steve and refuses to be dumped by him. She is willing to wear fishnets,

drop details of lesbian romps and have sex in public toilets – in fact pretty much anything – to keep him.

 

 

Susan

Pretty and sexy, Susan is an unabashed go-getter. Her uninhibited attitude towards sex and relationships often catches people unawares. Until recently Susan thought she was having a fling with Patrick. Patrick thought it was more serious than a fling, and therefore the ‘ending-it’ rules apply. Now Susan’s fallen for Steve, who is her friend Jeff ’s flatmate. Steve is well advised to check her remote controls.

 

 

Sally

Sally is Susan’s best friend and a beauty therapist. Attractive and unspeakably vain, she rations her smiles to prevent wrinkle damage. Sally is desperate for a man. She has agreed to go out with Patrick. She doesn’t like him but he has one outstanding asset.

 

 

 

Patrick

Not the most intellectual of men and very right wing, more often than not Patrick is a bemused onlooker rather than a great conversationalist. Nonetheless, he has a great job with good pay and is far from bashful when it comes to sex. In fact, he thinks he is God’s gift to women – does he have hidden assets? Patrick thought he was going out with Susan

(for her it was just a fling). Anyway, it’s over. For some reason that isn’t quite clear, he and Sally go on a date.

 

Jeff

Jeff works in the same office as Susan and is also Steve’s flatmate. In his own opinion, Jeff is a ‘babe magnet’ – he is good-looking and has that irresistibly confident air, or so it seems. Underneath the bravado, however, he is terrified of sex.
