In the 500-400's B.C. (historians argue about the exact dates) Gautama Buddha was a young prince and spiritual teacher from India. Later, his teachings became the philosophical basis for Buddhism.
This BBC documentary covers the Buddha's life, from a young prince to a drifter, traveling and seeking the reason for "Dukkha" [problems] of human life. Watch as he finds the reason of Dukkha and begins to teach a Middle Way to live life.
Selected excerpt, from the first episode, of the award winning 1999 BBC documentary series Supernatural, where we learn that dolphins identify themselves with humans and of their eternal rivalry with sharks.
