Deep in the Bavarian Alps, Adolf Hitler ordered the building of a giant Nazi Party headquarters. He called it 'The Fuhrer Territory'. In this 10 sq. kilometre area, surrounded by SS and Gestapo guards with orders to kill on sight, luxury homes were built for the Fuhrer and his Nazi Elite. There were guest houses, a hotel, a farm, a cinema, a nursery, an underground communications centre and giant bunkers for the military high command and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
And above it all loomed THE EAGLE'S NEST, a mountaintop fortress 6,000 feet up on the top of a sheer mountain peak, which could only be reached by a deep tunnel and a secret elevator shaft. Here, in the mountains Hitler made his most important decisions and his monstrous plans for the slaughter of millions and the subjugation of Europe. Here, he received Kings and heads of state and diplomats, many of whose countries would fall into his clutches. This was the place where he kept his jealously guarded mistress, Eva Braun and here many other Nazi leaders chose to live and raise their families. THE EAGLE'S NEST is a unique insight into Hitler's sercret power base and the rise and fall of the Nazi party.
The Hebridean island of Mull off the west coast of Scotland is home to the most spectacular wildlife of any stretch of UK coastline - sea eagles, golden eagles, otters, seals, dolphins, whales and sharks. Spectacular shots of eagles in the nest, of abundant marine life and of the dramatic Scottish landscape. Expert cameraman and presenter Gordon Buchanan returns to his homeland to rediscover its stunning wildlife and magnificent scenery. The Isle of Mull has the highest density of eagles in the United Kingdom, otters in every bay and even whales, sharks and dolphins in the surrounding seas. Gordon's specific mission is to find and film the Sea Eagle, the biggest bird of prey in Europe and one that has only recently returned to the Isle of Mull. Mull also has an exceptional population of Golden Eagles and truly deserves the name Eagle Island. Eagle Island gives Gordon some of his favourite wildlife moments to compare with anything he has seen in Africa, India or South America. "This is the best place in the world. To be back here is just the most fantastic opportunity."
Although Eagles Live includes four tracks recorded in the fall of 1976 (thus allowing for the inclusion of departed singer Randy Meisner on "Take It to the Limit"), the bulk of the album comes from the end of the Eagles' 1980 tour, just before they broke up, and it reflects their late concert repertoire, largely drawn from Hotel California and The Long Run. The occasional early song such as "Desperado" and "Take It Easy" turn up, but many of the major hits from the middle of the band's career – "The Best of My Love," "One of These Nights," "Lyin' Eyes" – are missing, replaced by such curiosities as two extended selections from Joe Walsh's solo career, "Life's Been Good" and "All Night Long."
