Brilliant documentary from the BBC
27 December 2001 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

In the same season as 'Walking With Beasts' and 'The Blue Planet', this brilliant programme looks at life in Africa, from Penguins on the coast to Wildebeests in Tanzania; through the mountains, savannah, deserts, coasts, jungles, lakes and rivers. Definitely worth watching!
