Australia's Red Centre

Series 1 - Episode 12 Australia's Red Centre



Steve Backshall examines life in Australia's Red Centre, a desert landscape in the Outback, where two-metre tall kangaroos, burrowing toads and the world's most venomous snakes are among the throng of animals that live there. He also looks at how, in a place that is parched by the sun, scorched by fire and prone to unpredictable floods, creatures successfully make the heart of this island continent their home.
