Stunning photography of the unique desert landscape and latest fossil finds are combined with advanced computer animations by the BBC’s award-winning team and Image House.
Shot in the Western Desert of Egypt at Wadi El-Hitan Valley of the Whales World Heritage Site, Whales in the Desert takes you on a journey to ancient times, about 40 million years ago, when whales were evolving from land mammals and the World was experiencing climate change.
