Africa Series on PBS

PBS is hosting a television series titled "Africa". Airing on September 9 - October 28, 2001 Sundays at 8pm ET (check local listings).

If you have ever wondered what it's like to live on the vast Serengeti plains, or experience the intense beauty of a Sahara night, AFRICA will take you there. A joint venture between Thirteen/WNET New York's NATURE and National Geographic Television, AFRICA is an eight-part series, shot in widescreen, super 16mm format, that takes viewers on a kaleidoscopic adventure across Africa's major regions and into the homes of the people who live there.
