TURAS I MBAOL – SAHARA

2x52 Min Series / Format: Digibeta / TG4 Version


Funders: TG4, National Geographic International, Irish Film Board

Writer & climber Dermot Somers travels by camel across the Sahara with one of the very last remaining Tuareg caravans still trading in the desert.

From the remote Oasis of Bilma, their extraordinary journey takes them across some of the most spectacular desert landscapes in Africa before reaching the colourful market towns that fringe the great desert. They are carrying a precious mineral that could once be traded for its own weight in gold...they are carrying salt.
