Rivers of Life This landmark three-part series reveals the extraordinary animals, epic landscapes, and remarkable people who live alongside three iconic rivers. Using new technology and exclusive stories, Rivers of Life reveals a wider and fresh perspective on the extraordinary landscapes, surprising wildlife, and extraordinary people of the Nile, the Mississippi, and the Amazon.
The Nile: 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: 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: The Mississippi reaches far beyond the Deep South; its fingers stretch into nearly half of the USA. From the frozen north - where coyotes learn to fish in icy water - down through the nation's agricultural heart and then to the mysterious, steamy southern swamps where alligators still rule, the many faces of the Mississippi unite a nation.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
