Description: The oldest of the continents geologically and the cradle of humanity, Africa is also one of the richest continents in terms of wildlife. This program focuses on one its most remarkable regions--the Kalahari. Using the BBC Earth series AFRICA as a launch point, follow starlight cameras revealing the nocturnal behavior of black rhinos, super slow motion footage capturing a fierce battle between two male giraffes, and red-billed queleas defend their nests from marauding armored bush crickets, just to name a few of the natural wonders we see. This multi-part series -- with Dr. Bill Thierfelder, a docent-guide at The American Museum of Natural History -- explores everything from the origins of the Universe to the microscopic world at our feet and the many startling wonders in between. Join in and discover stars, planets, oceans, wild mammals, insects, and human origins -- a whole banquet of remarkable things that make our universe the spectacular place that it is.
