BBC Motion Gallery
Here, in stunning HD-originated (1080/50i) footage as well as standard definition, you will find a wealth of imagery covering locations, people, technology, industry, history and more.
Travel the Yangtze River from source to sea. Journey the ancient Silk Road. Feel the buzz of Shanghai. Explore the other-worldly landscapes of Xinjiang.
These difficult to shoot images convey a range of feelings and meanings. They evoke the dawn of a new day. A spirit of hope. A sensual, rhythmic beauty. Their poetic movements are both fascinating and tranquil. Because the images are so graphic, many of them almost painterly, they’re strong enough to be used as a primary visual, even an entire production.
Showreel: HD In Full Bloom
Spectacular footage capturing the essence of Africa, shot by the BBC’s acclaimed Natural History Unit. Emotionally-charged and visually stunning.

The Art of Tomasz Maronski
My paintings concern merely the fantasy themes getting inspirations from world surrounded me every day. I focus on the landscapes subject.

Hybrid Solar HouseInnovative new homes of remarkable strength, economy, and beauty, brought to life by an elegant new architecture and the discovery of a new source of pollution-free energy. We will show you a method of building homes and offices in which natural materials and natural forces are used to create a comfortable environment without the use of fuel or electricity.
|Once completed, even before you move in, these new homes will have come alive with a natural atmospheric cycle, like the Earth, on which they are based. A built-in "biosphere," in gradual but constant motion, draws energy from the sun, and geothermal stability from the ground, creating a temperate climate that buffers the primary living space. |
