Series 1 - Episode 5 Deserts



David Attenborough focuses on animals living in deserts. Cameras explore the dry Atacama of Chile, where guanacos survive by licking dew off cacti, and capture the rare sight of wild camels eating snow to stay hydrated on Mongolia's Gobi plains. In the rocky Namibian desert, elephants desperately search for food and lions wander the wilderness hunting oryx.
