Wildlife documentary. A team of New Guinean naturalists embark on a gruelling expedition to try to film ten birds of paradise deep in the heart of the rainforest.
Living in the depths of the New Guinea rainforest are the spectacular birds of paradise - creatures so beautiful that the first Europeans believed they must have fallen from heaven. Filming their bizarre courtship displays is the Holy Grail of wildlife film-makers: some perform like iridescent acrobats, others make hypnotic pulsing sounds as they quiver and vibrate.
David Attenborough narrates the film. He has been entranced by these birds since he was a boy and he introduces a team of New Guinean naturalists as they embark on a gruelling expedition to try to film ten birds of paradise deep in the heart of the rainforest.
