Wild Arabia

Wild Arabia is a three-part BBC documentary series about the wildlife, people and culture of the Arabian peninsula. Featuring the snow-white oryx, the long-legged jerboa and glow-in-the-dark scorpions, the first episode reveals extraordinary wildlife of Arabia. The second episode features wildlife in a remote corner of southern Arabia - Oman's Dhofar Mountains. Swept by the annual Indian Ocean monsoon, the Dhofar mountains become a magical lost world of waterfalls and cloud forests filled with chameleons and honey-badgers. Huge changes have swept across Arabia since the discovery of oil and the Arab relationship with nature has changed too. The third and final episode explores the people's fast-changing relationship with nature.
