Spirits of the Forest

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

The BaAka pygmies of the Congo have lived in the area for many thousands of years and are the supreme naturalists and hunters of the rainforest. They have a name, and a use, for every species of plant and animal in the forest. They talk of a huge creature they call Mokele Mbembe which lives in the swampy forests of the Ndoki, one of Africa's last great wildernesses. They say it is large and aggressive, with a single huge horn, and it sleeps on a bed made of elephants' tusks. It sounds like a myth, but with all their knowledge, why would they invent a mythical beast?
