"Africa : voices of the forest: "Deep in the central African rainforest, a struggle for survival rages. This episode takes a close look at how booming overseas markets for rainforest trees threaten the existence of two groups of Africans. Cameroon's Baka people, a traditional rainforest group, have lived in harmony with the forest for centuries, but now the sound of electric saws deafens the daily music of birds and monkeys. In Accra, the capital of Ghana, Annan Cedi, a coffin maker, needs these precious rainforest woods to construct fantasy coffins for international clients. Will the Baka be able to protect their ancient way of life and with it, an invaluable eco-system? And will Annan be able to maintain his business?"--Container.
Africa : desert odyssey: "The Sahara is the largest desert on the planet - almost as big as the United States - with the highest recorded temperature in the world of 136.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This vast sea of sand and volcanic rock is one of the most inhospitable places on earth. Adam Illius, a nine-year old boy from the Tuareg village of Timia in Niger is about to begin a journey that will change his life. He is about to walk into the heart of the desert with his family's caravan of camels, across some of the cruelest terrain in search of a prize once said to be as valuable as gold. The trip will be fatal. Even reaching the salt mines will not guarantee success."--Container.
