In this documentary series, Sue Perkins uncovers a region undergoing unprecedented change. As well as tackling hard-hitting social and environmental issues, Sue explores the lighter side of life on South East Asia's largest river, flowing 3,000 miles from the high peaks of the Himalayas through the Tibetan plateau, the canyons of Chinese Yunnan, and Vietnam's vast Mekong Delta. In Part 1, she begins her journey by visiting Vietnam's Cai Rang floating market and learning how the transition to capitalism is affecting rice farmers. In Phnom Penh, she meets a Khmer Rouge regime survivor and learns about a dark chapter in the country's recent past. Finally, she discovers the river's importance to fishing villages on Tonlé Sap Lake, whose ecological balance is under threat by dams upstream.
