Six visits to romantic little-known parts of South-East Asia with David Attenborough

An ocean of green leaves stretches for hundreds of square miles. It's the canopy-the roof of the jungle. In it many new plants, and even trees, are still being discovered. And the animal life too is full of surprises. There are flying squirrels, lizards, lemurs - even a snake that flies! And in a swamp forest David Attenborough discovers a huge colony of flying foxes, the world's largest bat.

"Tell me when I'm past it," says Rowland, ageing star of the local Gilbert and Sullivan Society. But, of course, he is and nobody will. Not even when a talent like young Clive Bates is champing at the bit. The Silver Jubilee production looms. Who's going to play Jack Point?

A series of ten programmes

Some creatures carry so much weaponry and armour it's remarkable their predators don't die of starvation. The balance of life on a coral reef is partly the balance of population between predators and prey. Only the very largest fish are safe from being eaten-most reef inhabitants are someone else's dinner. Roland Von Hentig continues his exploration of the reefs of Comoro in the Indian Ocean.
