Synopsis by Kathryn Tamms
Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997) spent much of his lifetime devoted to the water--first as a French naval officer in World War II, then as a marine explorer, oceanographic museum director, and founder of the Underseas Research Group. After winning two Academy Awards for his documentary films on ocean life, Cousteau introduced TV audiences to the fascinating underwater world of sharks, whales and dolphins as well as sunken treasure and coral reefs in the series "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau." In his 1991 documentary "Journey to a Thousand Rivers," Cousteau introduces us to life on the Amazon River--both above and below the surface.
