Audio slideshow: Exploring Arabia

For centuries Arabia has evoked mystery and romance, yet we know very little about the wildlife and people that call this land home.

In a new series for BBC Two, Wild Arabia, we discover a land of breathtaking scenery, remarkable human adaptation and extraordinary wildlife.

Series producers Chadden Hunter and Dan Rees talk about the experience of making Wild Arabia including the use of camera traps to come face to face with the incredibly rare Arabian leopard and the transformation in the sport of camel racing.
