Eastward with Attenborough

on BBC One London

Another chance to sample the most popular natural history series ever shown. Now four from the original six films are brought together for a programme entirely on Borneo.
The swamps, jungles and caves are featured and star attractions are the flying snakes, mud skippers, fiddler crabs, the rare proboscis monkey, the strange Punan tribe and the great variety of jungle wildlife around them. Finally, the famous and huge pile of bat guano covered with a carpet of golden cockroaches which
David Attenborough tackles in his search for the story of bird's-nest soup.
