david livingstone diaryDavid Livingstone is the British missionary whose exploration into the ‘dark heart’ of Central Africa turned him into a legend.

His meeting with American journalist Henry Morton Stanley has been immortalised by the iconic phrase, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume”.

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Livingstone’s birth in March 1813, The Lost Diary of Dr. Livingstone follows a pioneering American team’s ground breaking attempts to decipher his last field diary.

Now, state-of-the-art multi spectral imaging technology begins an incredible journey inside the mind of this 19th century adventurer.
