The Underseen World of Claude Jateau, Part 1: The River of Angels
Sleight of Mind Group
Do you remember the long-running Jacques Cousteau nature documentary series on television? In The River of Angels you'll meet his radio cousin, Claude Jateau. With a delightful French accent and a tireless thirst for scientific knowledge Jateau and a group of scientists and friends, explore the freeways of Los Angeles and examine the nomads who travel them with the same enthusiasm that Cousteau brought to his explorations of the Amazon and the Nile. He even goes in search of such endangered native wildlife as The Fading Film Star, and manages to capture and tag one with a radio collar. Skillful writing, acting, and a wonderful sense of humor combine in a guaranteed half hour of pure fun.
