Lands Of The Mon­soon S1

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch Today -

BBC Earth HD, Hyp­pTV Ch 501, 8.10pm We started off the sea­son with mas­sive rain­fall and de­struc­tive storms, and now the com­plete op­po­site hap­pens – a drought. Here in Malaysia, we take our wa­ter for granted (heck, it’s free in some states). But what if a drought hits us with­out warn­ing? Will we be able to cope with the sud­den en­vi­ron­men­tal changes? In to­day’s episode, we travel to north­ern In­dia to un­der­stand how the lo­cals have been sur­viv­ing in the wind-blown desert, be­fore head­ing to Bor­neo where forests de­velop cop­ing mech­a­nisms for the dry sea­sons. As quoted from the orig­i­nal Juras­sic Park film, “Life finds a way”.
