Description by OLDIES.com:
Flowing 4,00 miles from Central Africa to the Mediterranean, the Nile River has long exerted a mystical influence on man's imagination - and the dreams of explorers such as Jacques and Philippe Cousteau.
In this breathtaking journey, the Cousteaus embark on a daring 10-month expedition along the entire course of the world's largest river, capturing on film the Nile's astonishing natural beauties, menacing dangers, primitive cultures and animal sanctuaries. Wild hippopotami, the mysteries of the deadly tsetse fly, the ancient Dinka and Shilluk African tribes and the Sudd - a swamp as large as England - are among the natural wonders encountered along the trek from Uganda to Khartoum to Egypt, before concluding at the manmade wonders of the Nile, the Jonglei Canal and the Aswan High Dam.
