In the spirit of Marco Polo, Journeys to the Ends of the Earth follows photojournalist, David Adams, as he seeks out ancient mysteries in some of the remotest regions on the planet.
NIGER - The Land of Fear. Adams travels across the simmering heart of the Sahara with a Tuareg caravan, haggles for a pillar of salt and skis down the biggest sand dune in the world. This is the land of Fear.
LIBYA - The Ancient Chariots of Libya. A vast desert country veiled from the East by fear, prejudice and misunderstanding. Adams follows in the wheel tracks of Ancient Rome's "Chariots of Fire" - the first wheeled vehicles to explore the Sahara and discovers a little-known land of exotic brilliance, ancient cities & forbidding deserts.
ETHOPIA - The Keepers of the Lost Ark. Adams makes the pilgrimage from Lalibela to Gonder in the northern wilds of Ethiopia, and paddles by papyrus kayak across Lake Tana. His quest: to find the Ark of the Covenant.
KENYA - Swahili Sinbads. Adams sails by dhow from Lamu to Zanzibar, stopping off on the beaches of East Africa to haggle and barter for his sea-passage. Sinbad lives again.
SUDAN - Kingdom of the Black Pharaohs. Adams crosses the vast northern Sudanese desert and sails down the Nile all the way to Khartoum. Along the way he finds the pyramids of Meroe, silent sentinels to a long-lost civilisation.
