Saturday DAVID ATTENBOROUGH’S AFRICA
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.
