What is Sand Wars about?

After fresh water, sand is the most consumed natural resource on the planet. As a logical consequence of this exploitation, sand's limited reserves are threatened today. "Sand wars," triggered by building booms, are raging everywhere in the world and 3/4 of the planet's beaches are in decline and bound to disappear, victims of erosion and - as hard it might be to comprehend - smuggling. Most of us see sand as a free material, a staple of holidays spent on the shore, in unlimited supply. Sand is everywhere around us, be it beach, desert or town. Every house, every skyscraper with a dazzling glass front, all our bridges, airports and sidewalks - are basically made of sand. We use it as well to make fiber optic cable, mobile phone components and computer chips. We even slip some into our toothpaste, our powered food, our glass of wine. But is this omnipresent material inexhaustible? Can the available quantity match an ever-increasing demand that is constantly fed by the need for human lodging and expansion? What will be the consequences of intensive sand extraction on the environment and life on the planet? In tracking sand's "new" smugglers, corrupt politicians, unscrupulous property developers, and the ecologists trying to halt the erosion and disappearance of beaches, this investigation will take us around the world to witness this new gold rush firsthand. The "sand wars" has started. Who is ready to lead?

Amazon Prime Video is one of the most popular streaming platforms in the UK, with a broad range of TV Shows, Movies and documentaries. Prime has also recently moved in to live sports, giving customers the option of streaming Premier League football and Rugby Union Internationals.

Got a question about Amazon Prime?

Amazon pretty much built its popularity in the UK around shows like The Grand Tour, Vikings and Good Omens. But the addition of Live sports like the Premier League, International Rugby and Tennis mean it has become much more than that.
Amazon Prime can be added to your bill whether you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer.
If you’re a sports fan then Amazon wins hands down. Both providers have a fantastic selection of TV Shows and Films, and in this respect, it’s tough to separate them!
