Natural World - Reindeer Girls: TONIGHT BBC 2

Elle and Inga, 17 year old cousins from the north of Norway, are far from ordinary teenagers. They are reindeer herders, from one of Europe’s last indigenous people, the Sámi. So they are equally at home helping reindeer swim fjords or ice fishing as playing with the internet and mobile phones. This enchanting film follows the girls and their families as they accompany the reindeer herds on the annual migration across the arctic tundra. It's a unique insight into the lives of the Sami and the reindeer on which they depend in this bleak and beautiful world.
