The story of an expedition into the heart of a mangrove swamp to photograph flying foxes. Flying foxes are large fruit-eating bats. They get their name from their clever pointed faces, brilliant eyes, and ever-alert ears. They live in huge colonies and spend the daylight hours hanging upside-down asleep.
At sunset they take off in their thousands-flying to feeding grounds that may be twenty miles away and even on islands across the sea.
Look around with Cliff Michelmore, Derek Hart, Alan Whicker, Fyfe Robertson and including John Morgan, Polly Elwes and Cy Grant.
