A half-dozen of the world's most iconic bodies of water are explored: the Amazon, the Ganges, the Mississippi, the Nile, the Rhine, and the Yangtze. Each episode highlights the age-old benefits and bounty of a particular watercourse; the challenges it presents to human life; and the human activities that have affected its path, strength, and biodiversity.
