Taiga Documentaries

RTD’s taiga documentaries take you deep into the vast forests that sprawl across Russia. For a comprehensive view, you can hop on the BAM and watch it go by from the comfort of a carriage on one of the world’s most exotic railway lines. Or, you can visit a gigantic miniature railway for a bird’s eye view. RTD’s taiga documentaries also give you an up-close look at some of the region’s indigenous people and wildlife, from the Keto Indians in the north to the Amur leopard in the south. You’ll also meet a septuagenarian woman who has been living deep in the forest her whole life while maintaining the Old Believer faith of her ancestors.
