Joanna Lumley's Nile

British TV, film and stage actress Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, The New Avengers) is on the trip of a lifetime: exploring the longest river in the world, the Nile, from sea to source. JOANNA LUMLEY'S NILE finds her traveling in the direction of the earliest explorers as she journeys along Africa's "life line," visiting the people who live and work along this famous river today. Experiencing five different countries, Joanna crosses some of the most inhospitable landscapes on Earth: from deserts where ancient civilizations once ruled to jungles where Victorian explorers underwent unspeakable suffering.
