Two times Emmy award and Golden Globe Nominated winning BBC miniseries filmed in Africa. Exceptional cinematography of harsh and unforgiving African landscapes, remarkable sequences of mass camel treks and perilous river crossings, the series was highly acclaimed at the time and commands strong online interest to this day. Achieved huge audiences world wide, most notably in North America. In the middle of the 19th Century, at the height of Britain's imperial power, an unsolved mystery lay in the very heart of Africa, the mystery of the source of the Nile. It was a challenge that attracted a handful of extraordinary men: a challenge strong enough to reveal the best, and the worst, in all of them. Before long, it was to become an obsession.
