Afrikas faszinierende Küsten
Part I: The Ancient Bridge

Part III: Coast of Wonders
A unique new look at Africa, from its coastal outlines, featuring wildlife and landscapes, national parks and game reserves unseen in other wildlife films.
The Ancient Bridge reveals Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia as the land bridge between Gondwana and the Eurasian continent. Rhinoceros, big cats and antelopes, even camels reached Africa through here, until the Red Sea widened, creating fabulous coral reefs and warm waters for manta rays and dolphins.
Between land and Sea shows how tectonics tore India from Africa's east coast, with Madagascar in between, leavingamazing similarities in landscapes and preserving unique species.
Coast of Wonders highlights the great contrasts of Africa's west coast: harshest deserts, lushest jungles, rich Atlantic fishing grounds and the edge of the Sahara.
