Synopsis >

Grasslands feed the world. Over thousands of years, we humans have learned to grow grains on the grasslands and domesticate the creatures that live there with great success. Although even today, life in the ‘Garden of Eden’ isn’t always rosy. We walk with the Dorobo people of Kenya as they bravely attempt to scare off a pride of hungry lions from their freshly caught kill. We gallop across the Steppe with extraordinary Mongolian horsemen who were ‘born in the saddle’. And in a perfect partnership with nature, built up over generations, Maasi children must literally talk to the birds!
