By the River, by the Water (13 x 30 min. | 02 x 30 min. HD)

Rivers define the landscape and the lives of those who live along their banks. They supply water, food and construction materials, and make the land fertile. Rivers transport people and goods, and are the source of many myths and legends. They are places of recreation and the habitat for countless animal and plant species. All over the world, the quantity and the quality of river water are decisive in determining the quality of life. On our journeys along the rivers of the world, we meet people who live with the water and depend on it for their livelihood and provide insights into cultures and habitats.
