Sky News announces release of eye-opening documentary The Plastic Nile

Sky News has announced the release date of an exclusive documentary – The Plastic Nile – presented by award-winning Special Correspondent Alex Crawford. The documentary is one of the first to air on Sky Documentaries on 1st June at 9pm.

The Plastic Nile follows Crawford through Africa as she leads an investigation into the issues of plastic pollution from the river’s source of Lake Victoria, north to the mouth of the Nile in Egypt. As the team examines the knock-on effect of single-use plastic for the millions of people and wildlife that rely on the river for their survival, the revelations are more disturbing than anyone could have imagined.

From exposing the harm caused to food chains, to shining a light on the illegal black-market plastic bag trade in Kenya, this documentary reveals how human habits are destroying one of the world’s largest, oldest and most important waterways.
