First transmitted in 1956, David Attenborough walks through avenues of palm trees and rice fields in order to reach a small Balinese village.
Once there, he encounters curious villagers and remarkable creatures, including ants that demonstrate some ingenious behaviour.
In addition to exploring less celebrated wildlife, this is also an opportunity to witness the unique Balinese culture with its hypnotic music and dance based on ancient Hindu legends.

More about this programme
In his memoirs, 'Life on Air', David Attenborough describes how, at the time of his visit there in 1956, Bali was 'the epitome of a remote Oriental paradise', with just one hotel in the main town and an airfield so small that there were rarely any international visitors.
