Great Rift (2010)
Editor's NoteBy any standard, there is no region of Earth as spectacularly diverse as the 6,000 mile-long stretch of land known as the Great Rift. Stretching from Syria in the southwestern corner of Asia, to Mozambique in Eastern Africa, it incorporates almost every type of land imaginable, from sulfurous volcanoes to thick grasslands to raging rivers and snow-capped mountains. It also functions as the home to an incredible panoply of exotic wildlife, and served as the geographic origin of homo sapiens. Hugh Quarshie narrates this BBC documentary miniseries that leads viewers on a kaleidoscopic tour of the Rift, touching on the many and varied aspects of its animal populations and geographic features. This set contains the entire three-hour series, plus a bonus documentary called INSIDE THE GREAT RIFT.
