Wild Africa
Africa is the mother continent, the core from which all the other continents were torn away 100 million years ago. Since then, three factors have had profound consequences on its wildlife. This mighty block of land has stayed in much the same place - it stands alone and it straddles the equator. It has also been protected from crippling ice ages and destructive invasions as well as nurtured by gentle changes in climate and geology. As a result, animals and plants have flourished here more successfully than on any other continent. This is Africa - rich, diverse, fascinating, and the heart of the world. Time is the key to our series. Influenced by climate and geology, time has allowed Africa to accumulate the breathtaking variety of wildlife we see today.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #101
Mountains
The building of mountains was the next great event to shape the continent of Africa. In this film we travel in time from the spectacular Ethiopian highlands to the giants of the Great Rift Valley - the Aberdares, Mts Kenya, Meru and Elgon - taking the viewer to the top of the greatest of them all, Kilimanjaro. On our journey, we visit Africa's oldest peaks, the 80 million year old Atlas mountains in Morocco and the very newest - the Virungas - which still spout fire.
