Equator: Power of the Sun / Challenge of the Cold

The Equator is not only the line that divides the Earth in two; it is also the climatic and evolutionary powerhouse of the world. Species that live here must adapt to an environment where extremes of temperature are a daily occurrence. This insightful documentary travels to the Rift Valley in Africa, the Amazon Basin, the peaks of the Andes, Southern Asia, the Indo-Pacific and the Galapagos Islands to discover how these plants and animals have adapted.
