Plot Synopsis

RIVERS OF LIFE is a three-part documentary series that highlights extraordinary animals, epic landscapes, and remarkable people who live alongside three iconic rivers: the Amazon, the Nile and the Mississippi. Episodes include:

"The Nile" (Wednesday, June 19 @ 8pm): The Nile is the world's longest river. From elephants and leopards to extreme kayakers and ancient wonders, its great length provides a lifeline for Africa's wildest beasts and for some of the world's most incredible cultures.

"The Amazon" (Wednesday, June 26 @ 8pm): The Amazon, the greatest river system on Earth, amasses one-fifth of Earth's freshwater as it flows east from the Andes to the Atlantic. Boiling streams, crystal clear lagoons, pink river dolphins and a strange new reef are some of its many secret and extreme worlds.

"The Mississippi" (Wednesday, July 3 @ 8pm): See the many faces of the massive, muddy Mississippi. Its fingers stretch into nearly half of the USA, from the frozen north to the nation's agricultural heart to mysterious southern swamps where alligators still rule.
