EARTH A New Wild | Sanjayan Gets Snapped | PBS


http://pbs.org/earth-a-new-wild
Premieres Wednesdays February 4-25, 2015 on PBS

Filming the Singing Wells sequence of the Water episode of the series was done in the dry season in Kenya. While Sanjayan was waiting between takes, a local Samburu tribesman used his mobile phone to photograph Sanjayan. He contemplates how the Samburu’s tradition of digging wells is for good reason and that it’s not because the tribesmen are not aware of other options to water their cattle.
