where from such altitudes you can examine the bottom of the lake because of the clear waters and his four cameras fixed to be afraid. for you it's just a scientific endeavor but. 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. 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 cal's waters.
2:30 am
serious research by kal only began in the seventeenth century before that legends travelled around europe that siberia was home to people with the heads of dogs the first expedition destroyed all those myths this land was inhabited by. peoples like michael was populated with sturgeon white fish and a breed of seal with a photographic memory. this large by cal seal has shot by sight it swims close to the shore examines the area closely and if its familia climbs up onto the stones to somebody. but if the outline of the land has changed even a little the seal will not risk getting close to the seal places are a serious threat. feels natural habitat is water. constantly.
2:31 am
on two. hundred thirty. one and a half meters in length but on the whole. they like peace and. away from their natural habitat. the silence of the siberian. forefathers and the spirit of by karl itself they pray for health. and good weather. one of the oldest of the world's faiths fervently observed. shamans are able to fall into
2:32 am
a deep trance which they believe lets them see into the future. realized his calling in a dream but didn't believe it at first. in the end i was completely. then one shaman. told me. my brother if you have to go through initiation. days i passed the ritual it was in shortly after that i started recovering. in quite soon. again this is the place where i was initiated.
2:33 am
if a shaman like someone he will certainly ask the spirits of bike hell to be favorable to them bringing sunshine and success. on their mission. when you arrived at by cal he dreamed of seeing the sun foul weather here scientific experiments the lake has a strong character and its climate is far from what he was it was used to in switzerland. when we first came to lake baikal how the weather was awful it was
2:34 am
raining heavily by cow was harsh. we the first impression i had to fight 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. it was terrible during our first week here torrential then three llamas came in. for good weather. it was pouring second day the weather did improve.
2:35 am
pierrots surrounded us every mound. we call him down. summer. crops there are special rights when we bring in the milk overread cow or white goat and some other gifts. in the region buddhism became especially popular in the eighteenth century when monks from mongolia started settling in the area they set up monasteries and temples the biggest of which is the. people come from all over the worlds to this blessid land to meditate to learn or if they really want something to pray to the gods. bring different prayers to places emanating buddhist energy. for their family man
2:36 am
wants prosperity and success in their work. on the trees here someone's wish locals believe that a wish made here will come true but only on condition that you make. and that you don't ask for too much. after spending a few days of. started taking some of the superstitions seriously each morning he. and in the evening. expect from this place. something new here. scientists are as sensitive to local beliefs conducting studies and by some of them refused to accept the existence of any supernatural. according to them it
2:37 am
contradicts every law of nature. supernatural. it is impossible. to create. in this respect. protection. life is connected with. first of all he was born here he joined the local college and thirty years he's been conducting scientific experiments in the area. baikal is a region of high seismic activity with earthquakes a common occurrence for five years the scientists research has provided exact forecasts of earthquakes around by cal. in two thousand and eight.
2:38 am
separate from a powerful earthquake it was just as strong as the one that destroyed the fukushima nuclear power station in japan which was washed away by a huge wave. fortunately here the earthquake couldn't produce such a tsunami because they are too small. and in two thousand and eight days before the earthquake we reduced its own fundamental changes in the election magnetic field. 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 in salty ocean water.
2:39 am
detector is designed to help us explore the history or universe. find out how we began. what is happening to it now. what will happen to it in the future it. is only possible if you watch the streams of unique particles cold neutrinos. with the information of what was there when the universe began.
2:40 am
the media with good journalism with a chills with legislators there is pressure here genuine pressure building up this is part of the process people are watching this process companies businesses who don't want to see you know it should break into you know back doors into people's mass states affected business privacy being you know something that is an afterthought why because in the future if we didn't have commercial transactions you don't want to see this being broken so for human rights reasons and for commercial reasons people want to see this issue result in some way.
2:41 am
wealthy british style.
2:42 am
markets why not scandals. find out what's really happening to the global economy in these kinds of reports. react to situations i have read the reports. are true and no i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point to say that if. a car is on the docket. there. are no more weasel where. when you fade a direct question be prepared for a chase when you throw a punch be ready for a battle freedom of speech and down to freedom to crush. the media leave us so we leave the media. by the sea pollution security play your part of the musical. questions that no one is asking with the guests that you
2:43 am
deserve answers from it's all on politics only on our t.v. . the olympic torch is on its epic journey to such. a one hundred twenty three days. through two thousand nine hundred towns and cities of russia. relayed by fourteen thousand people or sixty five thousand kilometers. in a record setting trip by land air sea an outer space. a limp victoria tree left. on r t v dot com.
2:44 am
thousands of years ago the region of lake baikal was flat as legend has it the earth shuddered creating a rift from which flames burst out scorching everything around people begged the gods to stop screaming the words by and meaning fire it stopped. the spirit of fire. and as time passed water filled the rift this is only the legend but in reality lake baikal was formed by earthquakes. who viewed the
2:45 am
role lot of theories there old beast on process sees. this constantly widening fracture is the result of the movement of to tonic plates. scientists agree that by ocean in the making because these two tonic plates are apart and this is constantly making by coal larger and larger. never as a lake existed for as long as bike hell lakes usually last for no more than fifteen thousand yes after that they simply dry out and that's been the case for millions of years this lake that was formed long before human history began remarkably the water content has undergone almost no changes atoll. the lake is very deep and the water is clear and saturated with oxygen down to the
2:46 am
deepest parts. and yet it has never changed. a land of science discoveries and the unique nature seemingly frozen in time by the press and live side by side with the spirits of the past just like the lake itself locals preserve their own mysteries and traditions. treaty. local folklore legends and rituals with great respect. i'm convinced they are absolutely necessary here these rights we were told to date back many more years than many of the scientific research projects on the lunar clothing a ira learned. during their strength. or at the earth
2:47 am
prayer. mychael extends for six hundred thirty kilometers covering an area the size of some countries like belgium the netherlands. everybody finds a place in the vast area of by co christians buddhists shamans and old believers of the russian orthodox church they've lived here for more than three hundred years they cross themselves with two fingers and reject modern orthodoxy. their faith and rituals have remained untouched throughout all the centuries their villages have their own unique design each house has painted in rich some a color as old believe as clothing has always been famous for its brightness and neatness as well as embroidered hats and sarah phones yes we are going to see if the girl wears why green bends it means she's a bride from a well off family and her father has prepared everything for her to be beautiful at
2:48 am
the wedding. he louis i am louis you'll only. or ask her for. her i asked her close to her. who are spirits now and where there are no hands there are. shared beer. oh all they do here they're two. years. out. of the songs of our ancestors and we sing a mostly sad because they had a hard life and a lot of award but a lot of we work hard to you and don't have time to lie on the so far there are we
2:49 am
in the garden that need pulling out or berries they need peaking and aside from that there is always cleaning to be dying to feel better but i can other. every day old believers thank god for the sun and their health they firmly believe that places around by color sacred any difficulties can be enjoyed with god's help even the weather. there is a holy mountain nearby on ascension day where the elderly women go there and pray to god to send rain and bless the crops. from time to time scientists will admit that even though they don't believe in spirits they do listen to the local legends.
2:50 am
the traditions. here. helps. in return for respect be generous and the reverence with. the scientist from switzerland. paid off the weather has improved allowing the scientists to work . on the banks of. the biggest river flowing into by providing around fifty percent of its river water it's a powerful filter that cleans everything before it gets into the lake. will continue working next to.
2:51 am
the river bed. changed. developing and changing. very important. rich with a constantly circulating from the bottom up that keeps itself clean water can safely be drunk straight from. here. do you feel that this lake. this unique nature. has when you emotional states. like hell through its beauty
2:52 am
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. god that needs to be placated you should treat him to a little wine or even if you feel like it drink some yourself.
2:53 am
tivo there is 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. is 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 bed 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.
2:54 am
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 have 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 fine and the forecast was good but once we had reached the spot the weather changed and then it turned out that we had somehow lost the directions we had specially rented out and once we had reached the bottom. to top it off when we were rising from the bottom. that was to be. best. and i was damaged more so i understood then that up above we were on the
2:55 am
right track to find in this culture but my call was resolved to get what you were doing. josefa 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 by cal still needs to be unraveled. scores 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 of this place would really affect me so deeply thought of the heriot i spent here has been one of the most interesting and dynamic stages of my life conceiving the fire and i will certainly look for an opportunity to return to like bike out from each of those.
2:56 am
what you're dealing with here is that he did a few years' time but there are children who will just be doing commerce on the internet media that that's the future if you don't have a safe environment to do that. we're going to face big problems. such as. the people that want to. pick up something that is quite simply this. place was no way. clearly they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. and sold to the u.s.
2:57 am
so turned over to the u.s. for. the sole that could be buried alive. was saved with great effort. and they want to turn me into a terrorist so it was with them they wanted me to admit that i was a member of al qaeda or taliban or that i fought with them. not about time i didn't even know what al qaeda is nevertheless there are people all. brave enough to start a fight. something's going to be done that's going to be done by me and it's been a short amount of time to do it but it's going to impact me i'd be prosecuted but it's not going to impact. the wife my daughter. the one time a trap. on our t.v. . exactly what happened that day i don't know but a woman i killed. years later is when i got arrested for. for
2:58 am
a crime i did not do. we have numerous cases where police officers lie about polygraph results you get innocent people to confess to police officers don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is like meant no because the psychological techniques are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse and they were often they could do what they wanted they can say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. it was a. very hard to take out. once again there was a plan that we ever had that was that make their number. one.
2:59 am
place. to some of the people. we're not psyched to active camps have walked on where patients are worse at the moment after a mouse or strike never turn world's attention to the place that some. of our.
