About this show

For 65 million years, Madagascar was lost to the world - sat in splendid isolation, undiscovered and untouched by man. Left to its own devices it became a hotbed of evolution, resulting in the greatest concentration of unique creatures anywhere on the planet. Recognised as one of the world's most important biodiversity hotspots, this is an Alice-in-Wonderland island of weird animals, strange plants and extraordinary landscapes. In this three-part landmark series, discover what made Madagascar so different from the rest of the world, and how evolution created an island rivalling the Galapagos for mystique, beauty and scientific wonder.
