David Attenborough and cameraman Charles Lagus begin their quest in Borneo, the first in the chain of islands they must cross in order to reach Komodo. There they trek through jungle to a village belonging to the Dayak tribe who give them a welcome.
In this stretch of the journey, Attenborough has a close encounter with a crocodile, spends time with Dayak villagers and makes the acquaintance of Benjamin, an abandoned baby bear.
David Attenborough and his cameraman Charles Lagus explore the island of Java in their quest for the largest lizard in the world, seeing gibbons having a breakfast in the treetops, and taking a glimpse into Bromo, a sulphur-spewing volcano.
David Attenborough's search for the legendary Komodo dragon reaches Bali, where he witnesses a procession in honour of an `invisible god' and explores a temple that provides shelter to a colony of bats believed by the locals to be sacred.
David Attenborough walks through avenues of palm trees and rice fields in order to reach a small Balinese village.Once there, he encounters curious villagers and remarkable creatures, including ants that demonstrate some ingenious behaviour.
The team sails to Komodo island, the home of a giant lizard known as the Komodo dragon. Once on shore, Attenborough soon comes face to face with the prehistoric-looking creatures, and it is plain to see why they are a danger to man.
