The Land Where Evolution Ran Wild
Lying just off the coast of Africa, Madagascar is a land of misty mountains, tropical rainforests and weird spiny desert scrub. Here the wildlife has evolved in splendid isolation to become bizarre and totally unique. It's one of the few places left on Earth where there are still wildlife mysteries, waiting to be discovered.
From the rain-drenched forests to the arid extremes, this three-part series explores the extraordinary wildlife and dramatic landscapes of a fascinating, but fragile, island unlike anywhere else on Earth.
