HOANIB: The Secrets of Desert Elephants - The Namib, one of the most hostile deserts on Earth. Without a firm survival strategy, no living soul will make it here. Yet, surprisingly, some species have adapted their lifestyles to these extreme conditions: chameleons, beetles, snakes and mammals are all at home here.

9pm NATURE'S GREAT RACE - Nature/Wildlife - Follow every life and death decision these herds make as they overcome immense obstacles and face fearless predators in a race to reach their destination.

 CARIBOU - A hundred thousand caribou migrate thousands of miles through a harsh Arctic wilderness.

Nature's Great race - Caribou

Over 100,000 caribou face starving bears and wolves, deadly frozen rivers and rugged mountains, as they undertake the world’s longest land migration - 3,000 miles through the frozen Arctic wilderness of Canada and Alaska. Joining them are a team of scientist and wildlife filmmakers who, with the help of satellite tracking collars, will attempt to follow the caribou on foot as they undertake the most challenging part of their migration.
