Attenborough in Paradise

The one-off specials represent some of Sir David Attenborough’s most personal quests and passionate enthusiasm. Attenborough in Paradise represents a childhood dream come true as he visits the forests of New Guinea to record the spectacular displays of the birds of paradise. A piece of amber given to him 60 years ago by a young refugee girl sparked a lifelong interest explored in The Amber Machine while The Lost Gods of Easter Islands finds him tracing the history of a strange human figurine he bought at auction.
Also included is a special programme on the incredible ‘artist’ birds in Bowerbirds: The Art of Seduction an investigation into the music of the wild in The Song of the Earth an expedition to find a lost tribe in the mountains of central New Guinea in A Blank on the Map and Life on Air a fascinating celebration of Sir David Attenborough’s 50 years with the BBC.
