Bayou Bartholomew: World’s Longest Bayou

Originating near Pine Bluff, Bayou Bartholomew has the unique distinction of being the longest bayou in the world. It stretches 359 miles before emptying in the Ouachita River near Sterlington, La. Bayou Bartholomew is not only a wonder of nature, but also a national treasure. It's one of the most diverse stream in North America, containing 117 species of fish and 197 species of birds. The documentary not only explains the history of the bayou dating back 3, 000 years, but it also reveals how it's been long overlooked for its contribution in developing the heart of the Delta and neglected in American history. People who have lived all their lives along the bayou, in both Arkansas and Louisiana, will also share their stories dating back to the steamboat era on the bayou.
