    David Attenborough first appeared in front of a television camera in the 1950s when, together with London Zoo's Curator of Reptiles, Jack Lester, he persuaded the BBC to mount and film an animal-collecting expedition. The result was Zoo Quest. Specially recorded for audio, David Attenborough's early adventures are sometimes life-threatening, often hilarious and always totally absorbing. The warmth and enthusiasm that have made him a broadcasting legend are instantly apparent here as he recounts this magical journey.

    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.
