This programme looks at the different ways people living on the world’s desert margins are rising to the challenge of desertification and making the most of the opportunities deserts can offer.  Along the way viewers find out about the world’s largest solar plant, the “Hollywood of the desert” film studios where Game of Thrones is filmed, large scale irrigation schemes used for citrus cultivation, mineral extraction and luxury desert tourism.
