Product description

David Attenborough's books and broadcasts have opened the incredible world of natural history to millions of viewers and listeners. "Zoo Quest for a Dragon" takes us back to one of his earliest projects, when the BBC and London Zoo joined forces on several animal-collecting expeditions. This behind-the-scenes look at how the first programmes were made reveals moments of hardship on horseback, canoe and in a wreck of a jeep through swamp, desert and rainforest. Attenborough tells of danger on the crew's hazardous boat trip with a gun-smuggling captain and the terror of erupting volcanoes. He also depicts for the listener some of the incredible sights he and his team witnessed - breathtaking butterflies, taking tea with Charlie the orang-utan and the the voyage to the little-known island of Komodo to capture the elusive Komodo Dragon. Specially recorded for audio, David Attenborough's early adventures are sometimes life-threatening, often hilarious and always totally absorbing. The warmth and enthusiasm that have made him a broadcasting legend are instantly apparent here as he recounts this magical journey. David Attenborough, Britain's voice of natural history, narrates his early adventures in the wilds of Indonesia.
