S1-E2 Deserts - Life in the Furnace



The challenges faced by people on an eternal quest for water in Earth's hottest, driest environments. A man in Mali battles through a sandstorm to get his cows to a remote lake, but discovers desert elephants have arrived first. Tubu women and children navigate the dunes of the Sahara in search of an oasis, and at the height of a drought, 2,000 men rush into Antogo Lake to catch fish trapped by the evaporating water. Narrated by John Hurt.
