First transmitted in 1956, David Attenborough and his cameraman Charles Lagus explore the island of Java in their quest for the largest lizard in the world. They see gibbons having a leisurely breakfast in the treetops, stop off at the 8th century Buddhist temple Borobudur and take a glimpse into Bromo, a sulphur-spewing volcano. Attenborough also captures a fully grown python to bring back to London Zoo. This creature later makes a wriggly appearance as a guest in the studio.
