Description
How do humans manage to thrive in nature's harshest and most extreme environments? British journalist Donal MacIntyre investigates this question firsthand in four anthropological excursions to the farthest reaches of the world. The camera follows MacIntyre as he lives with Bedouins on the edge of the vast Rub' al Khali desert (where temperatures regularly exceed 120F); with the Insect Tribe in the rain forest of Papua New Guinea (where men spear crocodiles by torchlight and ask how much he paid for his wife); with the Quechuan Indians in the Bolivian Andes (where salt flats stretch to the horizon in thin, barely breathable air); and with the Bajau Laut (landless nomads who survive entirely on boats in the Western Pacific's Celebes Sea).

"Fascinating viewing. Four 45-minute episodes are split between two discs, ensuring sharp, gripping images of amazing stuff.... MacIntyre's travelogues chronicle vanishing ways of life, and are marvelously interesting and full of personality."DVD Talk
