The Sahara
The Forgotten History of the
World's Harshest Desert

The Sahara (2006) - 180 minutes
The Sahara at Amazon.com

At once a vast expanse of mesmerizing desolation and the crucible of human history, the Sahara Desert has been both the battlefield of empires and the haunted wilderness at the margins of the known world for thousands of years.

Shot on location, this exhilarating documentary brings to life the Sahara's cruel history and the conflicts that still plague its people. The Sahara recounts the story of kings who once led caravans of 30,000 people across the desert, bearing riches beyond imagination. It tells of Roman death squads that exterminated the citizens of the Empire's most bitter rival and how the Foreign Legion crafted a legend out of last stands and lost causes. From the fabled metropolis of Timbuktu to the shores of Tripoli, The Sahara is an illuminating exploration of this unforgiving and remote land of myth and mirage.

From the Stone Age to the 21st century, the Sahara Desert has been the setting or some of mankind's most remarkable triumphs and most stinging defeats.

In this inhospitable climate, which was transformed thousands of years ago from a lush savannah to the world's harshest desert, man continues to struggle and survive. The Sahara brings this struggle vividly to life, telling the story of an army of 40,000 Persian warriors that disappeared in a sandstorm and examining the life of a Saharan princess who led her people in a desperate war of resistance against Arab invaders. There are tales of Roman Soldiers, the fabled Foreign Legion, and the dreaded Nazi Panzer divisions.

Traveling from the site of an ancient stadium where gladiators once fought to the vibrant chaos of a modern camel auction, The Sahara shows us this sinister and seductive landscape and explores the challenges that still face its inhabitants.

The vast desert also played witness to the stories of two men who forged their reputations in violent conflicts in the Sahara, changing forever the history of the region and the world.

Also included is a bonus disc that examines the lives of two men - T.E. Lawrence and Erwin Rommel - who shaped the desert's modern history and were themselves forever changed by the Sahara.

Biography®: Erwin Rommel: The Last Knight

One of the most brilliant tacticians of all time, Erwin Rommel is famous for his command of the Nazi Panzer legions. But who was this man, and how did he emerge with his reputation intact? Footage of his army in battle and interviews with those he fought with and against testify to the complexity of "The Desert Fox."

Biography®: Lawrence of Arabia

A legend in his own time, he was once simply T.E. Lawrence, a child fascinated by archaeology. He grew up to work for British Military Intelligence, and ultimately joined the Arab Revolts. But what drove Lawrence in his passionate fight for Arab independence? This profile provides remarkable insights into the man whose romantic and violent story captivated the world.
