Cousteau/Amazon




Cousteau/Amazon
 1984 | Turner Broadcasting System

The Amazon River Basin has always been an area of little travel and much mystery. Thanks to the efforts of Turner Broadcasting System and Captain Jacques Cousteau we know more about this 4,000 mile stretch of water than ever before. Captain Cousteau, his son, and a team of scientists spent 18 months exploring the Amazon, and from their expedition came a three-part series of impressive proportions. The breath-taking photography, Cousteau’s narration, and consistent emphasis on the people whose lives are dependent on the vast waterway make the viewer feel as if he is on the Calypso with the adventurers. For giving us a better understanding of one of the richest and least know regions of the world the Board recognizes Turner Broadcasting System with a Peabody Award for Cousteau/Amazon.
