We were on the Nile, going down the river.

The River is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Somewhere Out There. It was originally broadcast on March 31, 1996.


Joe is on a passenger boat on the Nile along with a gender reversed German couple, two identical monks, an Egyptian prefect. The German couple's dog disappears. The river makes you feeling a part of god, suicide in the shower, a man with a javelin in his back, missing an eye, a woman who speaks a nonsense language and the linguist who believes it's genuine. Joe is a guide in Africa attacked by animals. Mounting animal hind parts on walls. Being covered with watches. The burial of an anthropologist by the banks of a river.
