This is the world's wildest continent as you've never seen it before - an intense sensory adventure from the Atlas Mountains, through the Savannah lands to the Cape of Good Hope and from the Roof of Africa and the Kalahari to where the dark rainforests of the Congo meet the Atlantic Ocean. Each episode shifting the focus onto a different region as it contrasts the epic power of the landscape with the dramatic struggles of individual creatures living there. From hidden jungles and ice-blue glaciers to erupting volcanoes and lakes of poison, "Africa" explores an astonishing array of previously un-filmed locations and discovers bizarre new creatures and behaviours - including some of the rarest fish in the world, exploding insects and lizards that hunt on the backs of lions. This landmark six-part series utilises the latest filming technology to reveal the surprising environments, extraordinary creatures and other fascinating secrets of an amazing continent. Narrated by David Attenborough.
