Amazon With Bruce Parry, Series 1HD
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
Join Bruce Parry on a breathtaking journey from the Amazon's source deep in the Peruvian Andes to its vast mouth on Brazil's Atlantic coast. The Amazon is a complex, shifting environment. The deforestation ruthlessly driven by the profits of logging and soya bean plantations has seen one fifth of Amazon destroyed already. The lands of the indigenous tribes are disappearing and their traditional way of life is sorely threatened. Travelling over 10,000km, by foot, light aircraft and boat, Bruce travels to stay with these tribes that live silently beneath the rainforest canopy. Immersing himself in their lives, he reveals how they are affected by the changing world around them. This series is also the story of the people who live and work there too: the soya farmers, the cattle barons, the loggers and the illegal miners stripping the jungle for traces of gold, the environmental campaigners dying to save the forest, the bio-prospectors and scientists searching for new medicines. With spectacular visuals and the highest production values, Amazon captures the living reality of this awesome, yet often contradictory, place.
