InterOceanic Highway, a major Amazon Road
will be the first to link the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The road is nearing
completion in Peru close to the Manú National Park. Theoretically goods
can be moved from the economically rich New Amazonia to Asia either westwards
over the Andes Mountains to the Pacific or south via Santos.
Morrison and his wife Marion made a film for BBC Television in this rich part
of the Amazon forest before any permanent road was made. The 50 minute film produced
1969 and titled 'Park in Peru' and was the first to introduce the river
Manú and its pristine environment to the world's television audiences.
