In Production

Wildest Indochina 5 x 60'

This series sweeps across the most diverse peninsular in the world. From Malaysia, southwest China and Vietnam to Cambodia and Thailand, Indonesia boasts breath-taking landscapes, historic cities, tropical jungles and animals galore. With mountains, pygmy elephants, turtles and rare birds it is no wonder that it’s a hub for wildlife enthusiasts. And we’re offering an up-close look at it.

Wildest Middle East 5 x 60'

From thick forests to remote deserts, along wild mountain ranges and into colourful seas – the Middle East has a spectacular, but virtually unfilmed, natural history. This is where east meets west, where forests meet deserts and where, if you look a little harder, the wildlife will amaze.

This series visits vast and varied Turkey, Egypt, Turkmenistan and Jordan, from the howling deserts to the whispering forests. It’s a celebration of the Middle East’s secret, incredible locations and its mysterious wildlife. Nothing is as it seems, and the natural world is fighting a constant battle to survive in an ever changing world.

Surrounded by the largest rainforest in the world, Manaus is a wild frontier where people share their lives with weird, wonderful and deadly creatures.
