Today in Africa

Channel: CuriosityStream (DStv 185)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Documentary Series, Nature, Factual

Today in Africa

In human cultures in general, and perhaps particularly in Africa, the landscape is the first shrine of tradition.

From the sand dunes of Mauritania to the currents of River Senegal, to the Lions of the Beninese savannah to the spirits of the forests of Gabon, this series explores the origin, the nature and the survival of deep links between several populations in West Africa and their habitat.

Each episode takes us to discover an emblematic landscape: the river (Senegal), the desert (Mauritania), the forest (Gabon) and the savannah (Benin).

A compass of escape and meeting which rests on two main pillars: the spectacular character of the places, often classified with the UNESCO world heritage, and the charisma of the main characters who are transmitters of their respective traditions.

Episode 1 - Senegal: The Sentinels of the Water

Each day the sentinels of the water try to preserve their heritage in a world of dramatic change.

From Saint-Louis to Kayar, via the region of Sine Saloum, we meet Meissa Fall, bicycle repairer, the fishermen Pape Lamine and Elimane, and Ousmane, the salt harvester.

Episode 2 - Benin: The Guardians of the Spirits

In Benin, the keepers of the spirits preserve a powerful spirituality.

We meet Aténi, a follower of Voodoo, and Baba Fudji, a Toffina fisherman from the lake village of Ganvie.

Deen, a member of the Eco-Benin association, describes the mangrove sanctification ceremony.

Episode 3 - Mauritania: Sentinels of the Sands

Caught between the immensity of the Atlantic and that of the Sahara, Mauritania was born of wind and sand.

Today its men and women hand down its desert traditions. We meet Youbba, nomad patriarch of the Adrar region; Seif, custodian of Chinguetti's ancient manuscripts; and Nour, a fisherman.

Episode 4 - Gabon: The Sentinels of the Forest

Gabon's soul lies hidden beneath a thick green mantle, the source of most of the Gabonese traditions, medicines, spirituality, and resources.

A precious heritage that a small number of men and women protect. We meet Kombo, a Babongo hunter, and Juste, who is in touch with the forest spirits.

Kingdom of the Mummies

In the shadow of the world's oldest pyramids, a team of archaeologists led by Dr Ramadan Hussein have made the discovery of a lifetime - a fully intact burial complex buried deep beneath the sand.

Now the team have to open every sarcophagus, investigate every mystery and decode every clue in this never before seen discovery - the first Egyptian funeral parlour ever found.

In addition to uncovering the first known, fully integrated funeral complex with dedicated areas for organ removal, embalming and burial, the team's learnings are helping reveal more about death - and the business of death - in ancient Egypt.

The latest scientific testing and scanning of the tombs, their relics and the remains of the deceased also add layers of meaning and context to the lessons being gleaned about the sacred rites and commerce that were conducted in this subterranean space.
