Deep Jungle reveals how technology is changing the nature of jungle exploration, providing scientists with the means to unlock secrets that enlarge our understanding of rain forests and the role that they play in planetary ecology. Filmed in the rain forests of Borneo, Peru, Cambodia, the Central African Republic, and elsewhere, this program follows researchers as they climb nearly 200-foot-high jungle canopies, confront unknown species, unravel mysteries of animal behavior, and explore hidden archaeological sites that harbor clues about lost civilizations.
Part 3: The Beast Within
What role did the jungle play in humanity's distant past, and what can it tell us about our future? The final episode looks for clues among the primates of the rain forests as well as the traces of ancient civilizations that thrived there, only to vanish. For example, using 3-D infrared satellite imagery, the scientists piece together what might have happened to the lost civilization of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, tracing how the city's relentless expansion led to changes in climate and ecology and eventually to drought, starvation, warfare, and abandonment.
