Explore the spectacular rainforests of Borneo with Dame Judi Dench.
In this spectacular 2 part series, we follow Dame Judi Dench as she delves deep into one of the few untouched rainforests remaining in South East Asia with some of the most diverse wildlife on the planet. Passionate about trees and orangutans, she embarks on a wild adventure to Borneo, the world’s third-largest island with experts as her guides.
Each day offers another amazing interaction with the animals. There are close up encounters with orangutans, sun bears, elephants, crocodiles and hornbills. Dench glimpses amazing flying creatures like the weird gliding mammal, the Kubong, that can fly for over 100 metres. Then there are more than a million bats, a dung beetle called Bob and a snake she names James Bond. It’s a magical wildlife adventure but one that also explores Judi’s passion for conservation she shares with her ‘chap’, naturalist David Mills.
