It was a movie called The Ra Expedition, late 60s ,early seventies. Gave me a headache if I recall. Hope this version is better.

The Ra Expedition was nothing like Kon Tiki. Ra was more about pyramids in different continents. Kon Tiki was about the movement of people in the Pacific.

Sorry about your headache.

008, I don't have to Google it. I read Kon Tiki in the early '70's and shortly there after read about the Ra expeditions in National Geographic. Sorry again about your head.

Google IS your friend...
My brother was fascinated by Heyerdahl; we had the book and saw the movies.

From IMDB:
""Kon-Tiki" was the name of a wooden raft used by six Scandinavian scientists, led by Thor Heyerdahl, to make a 101-day journey from South America to the Polynesian Islands. The purpose of the expedition was to prove Heyerdal's theory that the Polynesian Islands were populated from the east---specifically Peru---rather than from the west (Asia)as had been the theory for hundreds of years. Heyerdahl made a study of the winds and tides in the Pacific, and by simulating conditions as closely as possible to those he theorized the Peruvians encountered, set out on the voyage. 1950"

The Ra Expeditions (1972)
Ra (original title) "Documentary of the Ra expedition organized by Thor Heyerdahl, which crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a papyrus boat in 1969 and 1970. "
