Part 1: Winter trip, part 2: Summer trip

The Baikal lake is the oldest, the deepest and the cleanest lake of the world - and at the same time one of the most beautiful and mysterious ones. The Siberians call it 'Holy Ocean', 'Siberia's Pearl', 'The font of the planet'. The Baikal contains more water than the five big lakes in northern America and 1000 times more water than the Lake Constance - one-fifth of the whole freshwater reserve on the Earth. Since 1996, beeing world natural heritage of the UNESCO, the Baikal is under the whole manhood's protection. But time will tell if this protection will help the lake to be protected against the ongoing environmental degradation.
Klaus Bednarz visited the Baikal for several months in winter as well as in summer. He talked to farmers, fishermen, hunters, with forest wardens, scientists and ecologists. Combined with dreamlike landscape pictures und atmospheric music he made a two-part film documentation - a special experience for the viewers.

Adventure Baikal:
If you have already travelled in kayak, you will know the fulfilling feeling to discover the surroundings by use of your own physical strenght and in harmony with yourself and the nature. But why doing it directly on 1700 km? Why in East Siberia being full of bears and Russian Mafia? Without speaking any Russian, with exiguous budget? Detlev Henschel dared this adventure, got into "Siberia's Holy Sea" and canoed along the coast of the deepest lake all over the world. An enthralling report full of surprises, honesty and reverence - not only for kayakers!
