Attenborough's Birds of Paradise
David Attenborough tells the story of his life-long passion - the Birds of Paradise. From the myths and legends surrounding their discovery 500 years ago, to the latest extraordinary behaviour captured on camera. He introduces the "birds from paradise" that have captivated explorers, artists, royalty and filmmakers, over the centuries. He traces his own personal journey with these exquisite creatures, including his latest close encounter with a male's display, 50 years after he first glimpsed similar in the wild, and finally he reveals the scientific truth about these spectacular birds.
