David Attenborough's 'Zoo Quest in Colour' Brings the 1950s Nature Documentary to Life
BBC's "Zoo Quest" took 1950s viewers around the world, hosted by a young David Attenborough and cementing his leading role in television nature documentaries. The program ran from 1954 to 1963 in black and white, but in 2015 a BBC archivist discovered that the programs had actually been shot on color film. "Zoo Quest in Colour" features highlights from the first three episodes, remastered and shown in color for the first time. Attenborough visits the people, fauna and flora of South America, West Africa, and Komodo.
