Abstract:

"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.
