Serpents, Swiftlets and the Chasm of Gloom Narrated by David Attenborough.
In the black caverns of Borneo live what are surely the strangest birds in the world. They make their nests of spit and can fly in total darkness. These cave swiftlets are but one of a multitude of creatures that inhabit this underworld. Bat-eating snakes hunt beneath roosts that harbour bats by the million. Huge mounds of guano seethe with insect scavengers, and giant poisonous centipedes stalk the cavern walls. Written and produced by PELHAM ALDRICH BLAKE
