Excellent filming very poor narration
1 February 2019 | by hotlepardSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed the wonderful camera work and interesting information about the three great rivers. The little film at the end of each segment about the work that went into the filming was also very informative. Whilst David Oyelowo is a very good actor his narration skills are somewhat lacking, halting and lacklustre would be the best description .
