The popular presenter and adventure journalist embarks on an epic journey around a beautiful - and increasingly important - region. With its sun-bleached shores and stunning islands, the Indian Ocean washes some of the most beautiful and exotic locations on the planet: Zanzibar, the Seychelles, Mauritius, the Tasman Sea... But the world's third largest body of water is also crucial to its future - politically, economically and environmentally. From pirates plaguing ships off the coast of Somalia, to the Tamils of Sri Lanka and the rise of militant Islam in Yemen and Sumatra, the region touches places of extreme volatility. It is also increasingly the hub of global trade and competition, and industrial activity is having a huge impact. Simon Reeve brings his unique brand of adventure journalism to this portrait of a fascinating and increasingly important area, as he engages in the lives and struggles of its varied coastal peoples. As seen on SBS.
