The second film in a new series of zoological exploration
Introduced by Jeffery Boswall 2: The Dahlaks
There are 400 of them in the Red Sea, desert islands waiting to be explored by the expedition. They're the home of graceful gazelles, fast falcons, land hermit crabs that have forsaken the sea for a life in air, and colourful fiddlers living between the tides. Mysterious mangroves reveal a strange water-bird, and blooming underwater coral gardens house poster-coloured butterfly fish. Round a sunken ship lives the mighty manta ray, wing-span over 20 feet.
Filmed by DOUGLAS FISHER
Produced by JEFFERY BOSWALL
