Human Planet

Series 1 Episode 7 Rivers: Friend and Foe

Rivers provide the essentials of life: fresh food and water. They often provide natural highways and enable us to live in just about every environment on Earth. However, rivers can also flood, freeze or disappear altogether! `Human Planet' joins Sam Niang, a Laotian fisherman, as he walks a high wire strung above the raging Mekong River rapids on an extraordinary commute to work.
