The lost gods of Easter Island( Visual )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A grotesque head, attached to a body grossly elongated and as thin as a stick, carved in wood. When David Attenborough saw this remarkable carving at an auction, he knew it was more important than the auctioneers believed. He bought it, and tried to find out more about it. The search takes him all over the globe, from Russia to Australia, England to Easter Island, where the truth lies. In a very different role from that of explorer and observer of wildlife, David changes his spots to become a historical detective on the trail of a small wooden figurine with a unique history
Attenborough in paradise by David Attenborough( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The one-off specials featured here represent some of David Attenborough's most personal quests and passionate enthusiasms. 'Attenborough in paradise' represents a childhood dream come true as he visits the forests of New Guinea to record the spectacular courtship 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 time machine, ' while 'The lost gods of Easter Island' finds him tracing the history of a strange human figurine he bought at auction. Also included is a special program 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;' and 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."--Container
