NATURE | Kalahari: The Great Thirstland | Preview | PBS

To all appearances, the sands of the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa comprise one of the most barren regions on Earth. But every so often, violent rainstorms subdue the swirling hot sands, drenching the ancient Magkadikadi saltpans. In their wake, life re-emerges in a staggering display of over-abundance, almost as if brought forth by the supernatural. In the first of two hour-long films on the Kalahari - shot in high-definition and on 35mm by renowned naturalist filmmaker Tim Liversedge - the NATURE series brings this spectacle to television in the encore presentation of Kalahari: The Great Thirstland, Sunday, July 8 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
