Congo: A Journey To The Heart of Africa

A documentary about one of the most enigmatic places in the world



The Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire) is a vast, mineral rich country the size of Western Europe.


Alastair Leithead takes an epic journey from the Atlantic Ocean to the far reaches of the Congo river to explore how history has shaped the Congo of today and uncover the lesser told stories of this beautiful, if troubled country.


In the largest rainforest outside of the Amazon he comes face to face with its gorillas and hunts with pygmies, he travels into the heart of the Ebola outbreak with United Nations peacekeepers, and explores the cobalt mines which will drive our electric cars of the future.
