A unique one hour special filmed across 2 years portraying the wildlife and peoples of the remote Rio Negro in the Brazilian Amazon. The Amazon basin holds the largest rainforest on earth and the largest river in the world. Within it lies the Rio Negro – a lifeline of golden water pure as any river in the world.
For the people and wildlife that live here, nature’s never-ending cycles of life and survival set the patterns of the day. Some of the most unusual and spectacular creatures inhabit this region – pink river dolphins swim through the gold-tinted water; bizarre red-faced, white- furred uakari monkeys jump through the trees; huge aruana fish leap into the air to catch giant spiders; and a dazzling array of colourful fish flit between submerged branches in a flooded forest.
