Caribbean - The Wild Side Of Paradise - Discover the secret wildlife of the Caribbean, which is made up of over 7,000 islands and reefs lying within the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. From giant leatherback turtles who visit Trinidads beaches to lay their eggs and the ocean species which cant be found anywhere else in the world, to the giant humpback whales who travel thousands of kilometres to raise their young in the Caribbeans warm and calm waters. But as summer approaches, these sun- drenched islands become an altogether darker place as they lay in the firing line of some of the most ferocious storms on earth.

Wildest Islands is a celebration of the world's most spectacular islands, and the wildlife who call these jewels home. Thousands of kilometres from the nearest ocean, the 1000 islands of the Amazon are flooded for six months of the year and are home to some of the most unusual creatures. This submerged world is like no other - where the forest floor becomes the riverbed, fish feed from the treetops, and canopy dwellers are stalked by creatures that lurk beneath.
Japan's 7000 islands cover an incredible range of extreme climates from frozen seas and snow-capped mountains, to sun kissed beaches and steamy mangroves. Winter can be brutal, and Japanese snow monkeys endure the cold by basking in volcanic pools. Spring is a busy time for Japanese fishermen and the sea birds that catch fish for them. In contrast, summer in the southern islands is sweltering, with crabs patrolling the steamy mangroves.

Arthur Williams heads into Canada's vast untamed wilderness, beginning by taking a 1930s flying boat upriver to the Great Bear rainforest region and viewing ancient rock art commemorating chiefs of the Kitasoo First Nations tribe. He then hitches a lift with a supply plane to Wekweeti, a Native American community in the far north that was built in the 1960s as a social experiment.
Arthur travels to the deserts of northern Australia, the islands of the Coral Sea and the jungles of Papua New Guinea, where flying is the only way in and out.
Former Royal Marine Arthur Williams took up flying to rediscover his spirit of adventure after he was paralysed in a car accident seven years ago. In this series, he flies to some of the remotest parts of the planet to find out how people survive and thrive in places only a plane can reach.
Meet the big birds, a feathered family who've never flown a day in their lives. How they came to be and continue to survive is a fascinating tale that has long captivated Sir David Attenborough.
With disastrous consequences, the worldwide illegal trade in endangered animals is booming, with the latest impact coming from speculative investors betting on extinction. This is a story about greed, brutality and the merciless battle over a limited resource.
Embark on a journey of discovery in the seldom seen or properly understood mangrove swamp with Ben Cropp.
In the series final, Brolga decides to run an open day for visitors at the sanctuary, but has to round up mob boss Roger first. And after months of caring for them, Brolga decides that his orphans are ready to move on.
Love is in the air at the sanctuary. We meet Tahnee - a woman who's fallen for Brolga AND his family of roos. A feral dog attack sees Brolga patrolling the fenceline, AND he takes in a joey that has been abandoned by its mother.
Having agreed to take on Rocky the wallaby, Brolga has to build him a habitat from scratch. He sets out to create a mini mountain but quickly realises he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
It's an exciting time at the sanctuary as Brolga discovers one of his kangaroos has given birth. He and fellow carer Cynthia give some older kangaroos their first taste of freedom as they get them ready for release.
Renowned survival expert Ray Mears visits two of the most iconic and contrasting landscapes of Australia, the swamps of the Northern Territories and wild mountain ranges of Tasmania, on the trail of two of the continent's most notorious creatures.
