Joanna Lumley's Nile

 Joanna Lumley gives a very personal response to what she sees and experiences as she journeys along the 4,000 miles of the River Nile into the heart of Africa in this documentary first shown in spring 2010 by ITV.

She explores the world's longest river from sea to source. She begins her adventure on a fishing boat on Egypt's coast, where the Nile spills into the Mediterranean, before capturing the spirit of Agatha Christie in Cairo and enjoying a Nile cruise. She also travels along the river by train, road and felucca sailing boat, and ends the first part of her trip in Aswan, a town the Victorians described as being on the edge of civilisation.
