Kuiseb - The Vanishing River Narrated by David Attenborough
A battle is being waged between the Kuiseb River and the red desert sands of Namibia.
For thousands of years, each has fought to stop the other's flow. But now the balance is changing - for most of the year the river is dry.
Remarkably, in this hostile African wilderness, baboons and frogs, zebras and dragonflies manage to survive while they wait for the river to flood. Directed and photographed by RODNEY BORLAND
