Weather followed by Oddie in Paradise
Feathers with Birds Attached Second of three programmes with Bill Oddie in Papua New Guinea. Bill continues his search higher into the mountains where rhododendrons and kangaroos live up trees. The birds of paradise have incredibly long head and tail feathers and there's one that's coloured like lemon meringue pie. He finds a Parrot like a vulture, and a bower-bird that decorates its bower with red and blue berries. And, even more amazing, some of his photos actually came out.
