Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

Ten, 6.30pm

In the penul­ti­mate episode of this BBC se­ries, the quin­tes­sen­tial nat­u­ral­ist vis­its the great­est desert on Earth. Tak­ing up a third of the con­ti­nent, the Sa­hara may seem in­hos­pitable, but there are a sur­pris­ing num­ber of spe­cial­ist species thriv­ing amid its shift­ing sands. From sil­ver ants that re­flect the harsh mid­day sun to mi­grat­ing swal­lows feast­ing on flies at an oa­sis, At­ten­bor­ough’s fa­mil­iar voice re­veals the stun­ning nat­u­ral adap­ta­tions found in this vast wilder­ness. Fea­tures the usual stun­ning footage At­ten­bor­ough’s se­ries are renowned for, in­clud­ing an 18- month time lapse show­ing an ocean of sand dunes rolling across the land.
