This programme is part of a BBC Four Collection showcasing the early work of Sir David Attenborough.
More about this programme
The Aepyornis egg that Sir David Attenborough pieced together over 50 years ago is still one of his most treasured possessions. In 2011, Attenborough returned to the island of Madagascar on a very personal quest; to find out more about this amazing creature and to see how the island has changed. Could the elephant bird's fate provide lessons that may help protect Madagascar's remaining wildlife?
