In Search of the aye-aye Exclusive: The 1985 pilot show
Searching for the aye-aye of Madagascar
Listen to the original radio programme that inspired Last Chance to See, Natural Selection: In Search of the Aye-aye. First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 1 November 1985, this is how it was billed at the time:
The aye-aye of Madagascar is one of the rarest and strangest animals in the world - who better to search for it than Douglas Adams, author of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' and naturalist Mark Carwardine?
