Africa with David Attenborough

Africa is a six-part BBC documentary series presented by David Attenborough, taking us on a journey through the world's wildest continent, Africa. The series opens in Africa's south west corner and features the wildlife and landscapes of the Kalahari and Namib deserts. It looks at the unique and constantly changing landscape of East Africa. Then it visits the Congo basin and features some of the creatures which inhabit its two million square miles of jungle. Next, the series shows how Southern Africa is influenced by two very different ocean currents: the warm Agulhas current and the cold Benguela current. The penultimate program takes us on a journey through Northern Africa, home to the greatest desert on Earth, the Sahara - featuring animals such as Grevy's zebra, addax and naked mole rats. And the final episode of the series deals with environmental issues affecting Africa's wildlife, including poaching, habitat loss, climate change and human population growth.
