WIN! 'Outback' (from PBS) on DVD ... TODAY!
Australia's vast North West corner is a startling landscape. Its geology includes some of the world's most ancient rock, inland mesas pockmarked by Devonian sea life through to rock faces so old, they predate life.
Across this geology, the messages of our planets oldest living culture - vivid images of a world feverishly interpreted, as long ago as 50,000 years. But Australia's Outback is much more than desert and rock.
Where it meets the sea, enormous tides reveal the most biodiverse mudflats on the planet, where great flocks of shorebirds migrate from the Arctic Tundra and crocodiles predate narrow estuaries.
Off the coast, a humpback nursery receives its new arrivals from Antarctica. Below them, elite divers descend in search of the world's most spectacular pearls.
The Kimberley region of Western Australia is as large as California with a population of only 40,000 people.
We journey through the diverse landscapes of this region as two distinct seasons, 'the wet' and 'the dry' dictate the cycles of life. It's a frontier existence and it takes a tough hide to survive.
