Australia is one of the largest, and most extreme wildernesses on earth. A vast island of deserts, snow capped mountains and lush rainforest. Here the world’s longest lived culture, indigenous Aborigines, have survived by observing and learning from nature.
Australia’s animals are the product of millions of years of evolution in isolation, producing some of the planets strangest, and most unique creatures. From mammals that lay eggs, to trees made from gold, to lizards that drink through their feet.
This two hour special film explores the bizarre, deadly, and quirky characters that live here and how, through thousands of years of living alongside nature, Aborigines have gained a knowledge that could help shape the future.
