National Geographic - Wild Indonesia [DVD]
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Wild Indonesia is the first television wildlife programme to explore this spectacular archipelago of more than 17,000 islands, stretching 3,000 miles from Asia to Australia. The three-part series captures Indonesia's dazzling natural diversity and ancient cultures in a breathtaking journey to one of the world's last wild frontiers. Indonesia, a land teeming with natural beauty, is home to a staggering 15 percent of the world's species. Until recently, harsh landscapes and an intricate political system made much of Indonesia inaccessible to explorers and film crews. The Wild Indonesia crew worked for two years to film this delightful special and bring viewers some of the most exotic creatures on earth, from pygmy buffaloes to birds of paradise to demon-faced baribusa. Indonesia reveals the magic of evolution like nowhere else.

The first episode is a general overview of the islands, the second covers their influences and how they came to be in their current state and the third is a focus on Sulawesi and how different it is to the rest of the islands. The film quality is not bad; rather it appears to be lower quality because nowadays we are spoilt by the excellent image quality of series such as those of David Attenborough and the BBC. The program was made in the nineties and therefore reflects the image quality of the time. I soon adjusted to it after my initial surprise and it did not bother me.
All in all a revealing and interesting mini-series on this region and I enjoyed watching it. To me it was worth the money -£3.50 - as it covered things rarely seen and was slightly different to the norm.
