In the 16th century, a man called Nyikang conquered a narrow strip of land along the Nile River. According to local history, he united the various groups living there into one people, who became known as the Shilluk. While their territory is now part of modern Sudan, the Nyikang dynasty still rules from the royal capital of Pacodo.
The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1975.
As an anthropological landmark of its time, the series tells the story of traditional communities endangered by the modern world’s progressions.
The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish Dervishes, and the Meo of China.
