Sand, Wind and Stars

Episode 1 of 3

Wildlife documentary series which enters the wilderness of Arabia and reveals a magical cast of characters, from the snow-white oryx to the long-legged jerboa.

Few places on earth evoke more mystery and romance than Arabia. This series enters the forbidding wilderness and reveals a magical cast of characters. From the snow-white oryx that inspired the myth of the unicorn to the long-legged jerboa leaping ten times its own body length through the star-filled Arabian nights. Horned vipers hunt glow-in-the-dark scorpions, while Bedouin nomads race their camels across the largest sand desert in the world.
