In this significant leap year Australia marks the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the country’s first settlers, whilst Aborigines continue their campaign for land rights. The Soviet Union recognizes and celebrates 1000 years of Christianity in their country. Gold Rush fever hits the Amazon as men and women venture deep into the heart of the jungle in search of riches.
