New discoveries on Stonehenge (until March 3)
A documentary by Arte (as often) highlights new discoveries about the ruins of Stonehenge, whose reasons for building have long been a mystery. The show focuses, among other things, on the bones of 63 people, before 2000 before Christ. First discovered in 1919, they had not delivered all their secrets.
Archaeologist Mike Parker Pearson is working on these precious objects. Houses and other bones, a few kilometers from the site, give some clues about the society of the time. Through interviews and the analysis of buried elements, the program details in a very educational way these finds.
Easter Island (until March 6)
Like Stonehenge, Easter Island is one of the horse chestnut science shows on television. This time, Science Large Format is interested in the Rapa Nui civilization, the origin of the sculptures that made the place famous. The show aims to reveal the identity of these inhabitants, who had to sail for thousands of kilometers to settle on this isolated land in the south-east of the Pacific Ocean.
The team is also studying the construction and displacement of the Moai, large sculptures scattered on the island, which required great ingenuity, especially for their implementation.
Bottoms of deliveries and fast transports
On France 2, All in all wanted to lift the veil on the consequences of the promises of online merchants and geolocation services, supposed to save us time on a daily basis. On the one hand, the team looks at the pressure of bicycle lunch deliverers, and follows a UPS delivery man in his day to day, with his good and bad sides. The disadvantages of the system are numerous, especially for customers unhappy with their delivery, as shown in the report.
On the other hand, the program analyzes Waze, the free "community" GPS navigation application. It mainly raises questions about free work and private life. It is based in particular on the Exodus Privacy tracking tool (which we have followed the genesis), which automates the analysis of Android applications.
