“Two award-winning films about the epic changes to the Savuti Channel and the journey to Linyanti in Northern Botswana”

Stolen River is a riveting and immediate story of the historic moment when the Savuti Channel in Northern Botswana suddenly withered away, leaving what was once a beautiful wetland to bake under the African sun.

But with this intense drying up, a whole range of interactions start to emerge. A hippo pushes lions aside to get to the spilled stomach contents of a dead elephant, elephants dig down into the earth for water and hyenas turn adversity to their advantage.

The film is a glorious portrait of the interaction between wild dogs, elephants, hippos, hyenas, leopards, crocodiles, storks, baboons, buffalo, jackals, and other African wildlife species.

Journey to the Forgotten River follows immediately on from Stolen River, and journeys with the animals that did not stay, but chose early on to leave the wreckage of a disappearing river and go in search of the rivers to the north.

One traveller on the 120km trek is a female hippo, and we follow as she trudges across the interior, and finally makes it to Linyanti. Her urgency is soon explained. She has the next generation to think about.

A classic moment in film, from Journey to the Forgotten River, is the duel between a female warthog and some jackal, who are determined to snatch her babies.
Both documentaries are supplied on one DVD. Total duration 1 hour 46 mins.

Filmed and produced by Dereck and Beverly Joubert.
Narrated by Joss Ackland (Stolen River) and Peter Strauss (Journey).
Please note: these are two classic African wildlife films that were produced before modern, high-definition equipment was used - their quality is comparable to that of VHS video, not today’s hi-def DVD quality. Regardless of this, they remain outstanding wildlife films in their own right, beloved by many viewers who will remember them from TV in the early 1990s.
