Madagascar is a land just off the coast of Africa that is full of misty mountains, tropical rainforests and spiny desert scrub. It is also home to strange wildlife, much of which is not found elsewhere on Earth. This documentary series, from the BBC's Natural History Unit, showcases the island's diverse and rare wildlife, some of it being filmed for the first time. Among the animals featured on `Madagascar' are lemurs, frogs that change colour from brown to yellow, wasps that pluck tadpoles from trees, and fish that swim upside down.
