Episode of Series “Animal passions”.
Narrated by Richard Morecroft and presented by Steve Morton, this beautifully photographed documentary takes a critical look at the “dead heart” of Australia, the desert areas of the Northern Territory. They are revealed as a complex and subtle environment under threat from cattle grazing and poor land management techniques.
