Content - In Brief
- A new five-part documentary series follows five internationally renowned photographers as they explore the islands around Africa - Zanzibar, Mauritius, Madagascar, Sao Tomé & Príncipe and Cape Verde. The sounds of their names alone conjure up thoughts of pristine beaches, spices and the tales of "A Thousand and One Nights". The crew stops at nothing in pursuit of spectacular perspectives for their aerial photographs, stories and portraits, making use of unusual means of transport, from a motorised parachute to a flying rubber boat that can land on land as well as water. ‘Over the Islands of Africa’ (Filmquadrat-Dok) is a documentary set up as mini-series - Travel - 5 x 52' – HD - available in English.
