At Ibiza, everything or almost is an excuse to celebrate. They celebrate the opening of night-clubs at the start of the season and their closure, they celebrate on the beach, on boats and in villas, and every day they even celebrate the sunset. The local inhabitants also perpetuate traditional feasts in their villages. Over and above these festive rites, this documentary by Pierre Brouwers reveals an island rich in ancient history, encircled by creeks, cliffs and yellow sandy beaches emerging from limpid seas. Not forgetting, for people who still harbour a sense of peace and quiet, the little sister island of Formentera.

The Egypt of the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx and the Valley of the Kings was an empire of indomitable might. Yet around 800 BC, the impossible happened. Kush, a subject kingdom from the south, rose up, conquered Egypt and enthroned his own Pharaohs and ruled for nearly one hundred years.
These were the mysterious Black Pharaohs of what is today Sudan, the Nubian kings, whose reign has become legendary among Africans and written off as heresy by early archaeologists who refused to believe that dark skinned Africans could have risen so high. National Geographic follows the experts to learn the real story of the Rise of the Black Pharaohs.
