First transmitted in 1956, David Attenborough and the Zoo Quest team ventured to the islands of South East Asia in search of the legendary Komodo dragon.
In this stretch of the journey, Attenborough has a close encounter with a crocodile, spends time with Dayak villagers and makes the acquaintance of Benjamin, an abandoned baby bear.
