Journeys to the Other Side of the World
From Madagascar and New Guinea to the Pacific Islands and the Northern Territory of Australia, a young David Attenborough and his cameraman companion were aiming to record not just the wildlife, but the way of life of some of the indigenous people of these regions, whose traditions had never been encountered by most of the British public before.
From the land divers of Pentecost Island and the sing-sings of New Guinea, to a Royal Kava ceremony on Tonga and the ancient art of the Northern Territory, it is a journey like no other.
Alongside these remarkable cultures he encounters paradise birds, chameleons, sifakas and many more animals in some of the most unique environments on the planet.
Commended by Daily Express as a ‘wondrous reminder of Attenborough’s pioneering role…full of delightful tales’ and by The Lady as ‘an adventure that sparked a lifetime’s commitment to the planet’, Journeys to the Other Side of the World is an incredible tale of cultures and wildlife.
