The Day of the Locust

An Oxford Scientific Films production for Discovery Channel

Steve and Greg - leading scientists and tacticians in the military-style war on locusts - are in the blow-torch heat of the Australian outback, swarm-chasing a pest that has terrorized humanity since the dawn of civilization. On their mission to find out more about an extraordinary creature that is equipped with three brains and tastes with its feet.

Our intrepid scientists drive to the epicentre of a biblical storm of locusts - a feeding frenzy of insects, numbering in their billions and devouring everything that stands in their way. What can be done to stop them?
