    Everywhere on the planet cities seem to pop up and grow, sometimes despite climatic or geographical conditions that seem impossible to live in. How do people acclimate to lead a normal life?

    Follow Alexandra, a travel reporter, to meet those living in the most extreme cities of the world. The coldest, warmest, highest, most humid, etc. First stop in Yakutsk, Siberia and then La Paz in Bolivia,  to show the incredible adaptability of their inhabitants.
    Some are extremely cold, others extremely hot, very high, very isolated or incredibly densely populated. The planet already has dozens of cities which, seen from our perspective, do not appear to be very appealing places to live. And yet, people like them and live in them, unaware that their daily life is a feat in itself. 
    Journalist Alexandra Alevêque will experience life in some of the most extreme cities in the world, living in each one long enough to learn about the locals' way of life.
    What she brings back is an insight into humankind's incredible capacity to adapt and find behavioural and organisational solutions.
    What do these unusual cities look like?
    What is life like for their inhabitants?
    What can we learn from them?

    They are the engineers, the computer scientists, the experts who have decided to put their tech skills to work for the populists who are taking over the world. “Hacking Democracy” puts the new populist crusade threatening our democracies under a microscope.

    In recent years, populist movements have been mobilizing public opinion and gaining traction thanks to information technology. Donald Trump in the United States; Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil; Viktor Orban in Hungary; Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, etc... And populists are on the verge of taking power in many other countries.
    Populism is above all a method of conquering and retaining power. It is a set of techniques whose main feature is opportunism: they refuse to take sides, neither left nor right. Populists claim their exclusive capacity to represent the “real people” thanks to a more direct relationship with voters; to the detriment of corrupt and discredited elites.
    For the first time, this investigative documentary is shedding a light on the ones orchestrating this chaos and their methods. For this disorder has its thinkers who, thanks to trial and error, are developing a kind of “populism manual” on the networks. In the shadow of political figures, these hackers of democracy are the real threat. They are computer scientists, opinion pollsters, specialists in Big Data. And they are the new occult advisors to the political world.
    There is an urgent need to understand the phenomenon and examine the tools of resistance that can be mobilized.

    “Body building”: to build your own body. While the concept has been around for more than a century, 40 years ago we used to laugh at Conan and Rambo flexing their pectorals.

    The laughter has subsided now, the bodybuilder and the “fit girl” have become standards of the times. Muscles are not just an organ anymore, they are a social model.

    A bodybuilder's dream is to become almost like a cyborg: to augment their body, to submit to the machine and to become one themselves.

    No wonder then that the gyms start looking like factories: where workers slave away in an assembly line where they have become their own product. Bodybuilding originates from the industrial era and heralds the post-human age.

    Some say that with old age muscles turn into fat. This idea most likely come from a jealous and spiteful place. As if everything would turn flaccid and, icing of irony on a cake of despair, nature was to take back its rights over these chiseled bodies. Fake news?

    How do those who have struggled to build an ideal body cope with the passing years? Do they hide to grow old?
