1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A compilation of highlights and clips from past programs of the National Geographic televised documentaries, marking the 30-year anniversary of the Society's documentary production. From the very first National Geographic special in 1963, which followed a team of Americans as they ascended Mt. Everest, content ranges from wilderness to cultural exploration. Through these programs, National Geographic offered a broad variety of sights and perspectives which were previously unknown to the average viewing public. Still bearing historical value, examples include segments from the films that helped promote and popularize such issues as species and habitat protection and the works of Dr. Louis Leakey, Jacques Cousteau, Dian Fossey, and Jane Goodall

The stone age cultures of Kenya Colony by L. S. B Leakey( Book )

Louis Seymour Bazett Leakey (1903-72) was a British archaeologist, naturalist and palaeoanthropologist who made a significant contribution to the study of human evolutionary development. First published in 1931, this work presents the results of two periods of excavation by the East African Archaeological Expedition during 1926-7 and 1928-9. As noted in the preface, the findings of these excavations enabled the Expedition 'to work out a number of clear subdivisions in Pleistocene and recent times, based upon climatic changes, and to establish in most cases the relation of the cultures found to these time divisions.' The text contains numerous illustrative figures, including original drawings and photographs. Numerous appendices are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in archaeology, anthropology and East Africa
