wild south america

A six part series, "Wild South America" explores the exciting, diverse and unique wildlife that inhabits the dramatic landscapes of the vast South American continent. It is a land of great extremes, stretching from the Equator almost to the Antarctic, from tropical seas to ice-capped peaks, and it has the planet's greatest river system, longest mountain chain, biggest and richest rainforest and driest desert. Using the latest camera techniques, including infrared night vision cameras, we show little known animals, while our specialist aerial cameraman soars over the continent, revealing an entirely new perspective on its varied and dramatic landscape.

Lost Worlds

"Lost Worlds" is a journey of exploration around the continent to reveal how its varying habitats and collection of wildlife oddities have come to be there. It shows how waves of migrant animals over the millennia have mixed with even more ancient residents. Nowhere else are primitive marsupials and top carnivores found together.

Mighty Amazon

The Amazon basin is vast. From its mouth pours a fifth of all the river water on Earth and 1,000 miles upstream the river is still seven miles wide. This is the story of how wildlife has adapted to this watery world.
