Search for the Yangtze river dolphin Exclusive: From the 1989 radio series
This episode tracks Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine's search for the Yangtze river dolphin. First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 11 October 1989, this is how the programme was billed at the time:
This week finds our heroes on a slow boat to China in search of what the Chinese believe to be the reincarnation of a drowned princess. She is twenty stone, short-sighted, long-suffering and not very bright. She is, of course, the Yangtze River Dolphin.
