Over a century ago, the first explorers in the Congo forests sent back terrifying accounts of an aggressive ape, "half man, half beast," which inspired the myth of King Kong. Ever since then, we have had little contact with these lowland gorillas — they have remained a mystery to us. We have come to know the mountain gorillas of Rwanda intimately, but what are King Kong's wild lowland cousins really like? GORILLAS: ON THE TRAIL OF KING KONG follows Sir David Attenborough and intrepid cameraman Gavin Thurston on the trail deep into the heart of three gorilla sanctuaries in northern Congo: Ndoki, Odzala and Lossi, in search of the true nature of the lowland gorilla.

Baraka is a 1992 non-narrative film directed by Ron Fricke. The film is often compared to Koyaanisqatsi, the first of the Qatsi films by Godfrey Reggio of which Fricke was cinematographer. Baraka's subject matter has some similarities—including footage of various landscapes, churches, ruins, religious ceremonies, and cities thrumming with life, filmed using time-lapse photography in order to capture the great pulse of humanity as it flocks and swarms in daily activity. The film also features a number of long tracking shots through various settings, including one through former German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Tuol Sleng (in Cambodia) turned into museums honoring their victims.

The Trials of Life: A Natural History of Behaviour is a BBC nature documentary series written and presented by David Attenborough, first transmitted in the UK from 4 October 1990.

 

A study in animal behaviour, it was the third in a trilogy of major series (beginning with Life on Earth) that took a broad overview of nature, rather than the more specialised surveys of Attenborough's later productions. Each of the twelve 50-minute episodes features a different aspect of the journey through life, from birth to adulthood and continuation of the species through reproduction.

This is the story of the Philippine tarsier ? the oldest and most mysterious primate in the world.

 

Small enough to nestle in the palm of a hand, with massive, appealing eyes set in a tiny head, these beguiling creatures have aroused suspicion and fear among humans for centuries. This is largely because of their strange features ? reminiscent of fantasised extra-terrestrial creatures ? mysterious lives and the spiritual myths surrounding them.
