Human Planet - Season 1 Episode 2 - Deserts: Life In The Furnace
We can survive for weeks without food, but only days without water: it is the essential element of life. Yet many millions live in parched deserts around the world. In this episode, we discover how the eternal quest for water brings huge challenges - and ingenious solutions - in the driest places on Earth. In Mali, a man 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.
