1.  Life in Death Valley

The name, Death Valley, conjures dread. It is the hottest, driest place in North America.
But this is no typical desert. Nowhere else is a land so exquisite in its beauty, yet brutal in its extremes. Here, the rule is simple-adapt or perish.

Witness how fascinating desert dwellers ingeniously outwit Mother Nature in their quest to survive.
Discover Death Valley's many faces and secret places, including an astonishing subterranean water world where dwells a species of fish that dates back to the Ice Age.
Meet participants in the most gruelling footrace on the planet, the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon.
Death Valley's mystique and majesty come alive in this astonishing program.

Narrated by Anthony LaPaglia
Co-production between Thirteen/WNET and Natural History New Zealand (2006).

2.  Andes, The Dragon's Back

Come on a fantastic journey from the Amazon to the Antarctic, across 5,000 miles of unfathomably treacherous terrain.

With glaciers, volcanoes, snow-capped peaks, enormous deserts, tropical rainforests, caustic salt pans, and cloud forests, the Andes are an extraordinary world of diverse terrains, extreme temperatures, and a staggering array of wildlife.

Five thousand miles long and extending over seven countries, this high mountain range boasts some of the highest, saltiest, wettest and driest terrains on the planet.
But in a land full of secrets, the creatures truly set the Andes apart from all other places on Earth.

Penguins, Opossums, hummingbirds, llamas, pumas, foxes, condors, spectacled bears and such unexpected creatures as the pudu, the world's smallest deer, have all managed to thrive in almost impossible places.

Narrated by F. Murray Abraham
Produced by the BBC (2006)
Produced by Thirteen/WNET (2006).
