Lands of the Monsoon
From India to Australia, all life awaits the transforming power of the monsoon rains; the sun baked continent causes hot air to rise, sucking moist monsoon winds in from the coast and dramatic electrical storms herald the first rains.
In India, huge banks of cloud roll in, heralding four months of incessant rain; the rains trigger a dramatic response; new filming techniques allow viewers to see how mosquitoes survive the impacts of a giant rain drops.
During the part of the year that the monsoon doesn't bring rain, the winds reverse, bringing instead dry air and even drought to large parts of the region.
On the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, black crested macaques thrive in large troops; they are amongst the most "loving" of monkeys, showing affection not just amongst close family, but across the whole group.
An extraordinary story of the relationship between nature and the people of the monsoon, from the ancient past to the future.
