Joanna Lumley’s Nile

LIVING – Sundays from 16 October, 8.30pm

Joanna Lumley is embarking on the trip of a lifetime; to travel and explore the River Nile, the longest river in the world, from sea to source. Travelling upstream, in the direction of the earliest explorers she will journey along Africa’s ‘life line’, visiting the people who live and work along this famous river today. Travelling through 5 different countries she will cross some of the most inhospitable landscapes on earth; from deserts where ancient civilizations once ruled to jungles where Victorian explorers underwent unspeakable suffering. Joanna’s Nile adventure is an epic one but as she nears the end of her 4000 mile journey in search of the river’s newest source in Rwanda, she discovers that hacking through the jungle to her final goal, is not for the faint hearted.
