Quest in Paradise | [David Attenborough]

Quest in Paradise

Following his expedition to Indonesia, as told in Zoo Quest For A Dragon, David Attenborough's next animal collecting and filming trip was to New Guinea, home of the exotic Birds of Paradise. The quest demanded hazardous treks across treachorous terrain in the Jimi Valley and on the edges of uncharted territory but the arduous adventures were finally rewarded when, as the camera turned, a Count Raggi's Bird of Paradise enthralled him with its frenzied dance.
