Wildlife on One programmes. Serpents, Swiftlets and the Chasm of Gloom
In the deep caverns of the Borneo jungles huge mounds of guano seethe with golden cockroaches, while giant poisonous centipedes lurk on the walls. This is the home for the strangest of birds, swiftlets, which make their nests of spit and can fly in total darkness.
Alongside them are bats, who fall prey to underworld serpents. David Attenborough was visibly shocked as he entered the nightmarish world of the caves and he describes the film as "a portrait of a place that has what I can only describe as a horrid fascination".

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
