For 25 years John Archer has studied water in all its many forms, immersing himself in its mysteries, legends and rituals.
His journey led him to temples where water is worshipped as a living deity, to hot volcanic springs, thundering waterfalls and sacred pools hidden deep in forests. John has drunk the same water dinosaurs drank in the Jurassic swamps, sucked the dew from grasstree flowers at dawn and sipped the sulphurous healing waters of Sukayu in the mountains of northern Japan.
This documentary series is based on John's travels through water. Why is this so important? Because water is life.
