Emerald Islands of Malaysia

The islands of Malaysia are jewels of the natural world, ecological paradises where ancient rainforests cascade down mountains into crystal clear seas. This one-off documentary looks at some of the enigmatic species of Malaysia, both above and below the water. From silvered langur monkeys caring for their bright orange babies and ants tending their herds of mealy bugs to boisterous mudskippers and a noisy fruit bat roost. Compelling macro photography explores the fascinating world of insect mimicry as both predators and prey blend seamlessly into the jungle undergrowth. And, beneath the waves, discover the dynamic and technicolour world of the coral reef in this intimate and stunning portrait.
