In The Sahara Desert: Land of Fear | Full Documentary | TRACKS

Subscribe to see more full documentaries every week:

The Sahara is the biggest desert on earth. It takes its name from the Arab word for "emptiness". In the dead heart of that emptiness there's a place called the Tenere. The Tenere takes its name from the Tuareg word for "nothing". A nothing the size of France in the middle of an emptiness the size of the United States. It's no wonder the locals call this place "The Land Of Fear”. David Adams retraces the trade routes of the people who call this stove-hot corner of the planet home.

TRACKS publishes unique, unexpected and untold stories from across the world every week.

  • Made up non-science totally ruined it when you said climate change. remember lying Big Al who knows nothing about science and you guys are in the same boat. what a fake agenda. no basis for and certainly no evidence. it was much warmer in the 1930s with the dust bowl in the US so get off this climate fake news.
