Volga: Mother of Rivers (2019) IMDb

Seen in 2020.

I saw a version with Swedish-language narration and German-langague maps on SVT: 2 × 52 episodes.

The first episode squeezes in some nice old Orthodox convents and a charming Russian desman. The second episode has a floppy-nosed saiga antelope running in slow motion and finds a symbolically rich wreck of a small fishing boat in the estuary, where eagles have nested atop the bridge roof and smaller birds occupy other parts of the boat in order of size and rank.
