Attenborough in Paradise
In the remotest parts of New Guinea, naturalist, leading conservationist and world-famous wildlife presenter David Attenborough explores a spectacular paradise that is home to some of the rarest, strangest and most spectacular birds in the world. Fulfilling a childhood ambition, Attenborough reveals the astonishing courtship displays of these unique birds, providing an intriguing insight into their bewitching behaviour.
Attenborough in Paradise is an outstanding example of the BBC Natural History Unit’s thorough and patient approach to natural history filmmaking. In challenging conditions, the Unit’s cameramen spent over nine months in the dark, isolated forests, their stunning cinematography capturing many species that had never been recorded on film before, including some that had yet to be formally described.
A beautiful celebration of these fantastically flamboyant birds, Attenborough in Paradise provides an intimate insight into one of the greatest wonders of the natural world.
