Jungles are the world’s powerhouses, the most vital habitats on the planet. They only cover 6% of the Earth, but they contain more than half of its plant and animal species living in a complex web of relationships. Without jungles, the planet would grind to a halt.The jungles of the world are all very different. Charlotte takes a close look at the animals inhabiting the jungles, highlighting how they have adapted to survive the challenging conditions. Using hi-tech climbing technology and a hot-air balloon, Charlotte explores the soaring canopy of the Borneo rainforest - a green landscape hundreds of feet off the ground filled with all kinds of animal life. She also takes a boat into the flooded forest floor of the Amazon, where fish and dolphins swim between the trees. Finally, she delves into the dense underworld of the Congo at ground level - dark, damp and full of dangerous animals. This is her account of her journey, and through her words and research we are given a day-to-day glimpse of a fascinating world, from the largest primates to the tiniest insects.
Programme 1 : CANOPYWORLD
In the first episode of Jungle, get up close and explore the forest canopy. The high frontier of the forest canopy is one of the least known and least seen habitats on Earth, but it has the greatest concentration of life on the planet. In the jungles of Borneo where the trees are the tallest, Charlotte discovers what it's like to live 200 feet above the ground in a complex three-dimensional world - where one slip could be fatal!
Programme 2 : UNDERWORLD
On second episode of Jungle,Charlotte Uhlenbroek explores the mysteries of the forest floor.The forest floor is perhaps the worst and most inhospitable place of all - dark, damp and full of potentially dangerous wildlife, nowhere more forbidding than the original heart of darkness, the Congo.
Confronted with walls of impenetrable poisonous plants, toxic snakes, spiders, killer ants, diseases and large predatory cats, you can't even sit down without being bitten. Charlotte overcomes the hazards, and with state-of-the-art technology and inventive field craft, she reveals the hidden world of the forest floor.
Programme 3 : WATERWORLD
In this final episode of Jungle, Charlotte Uhlenbroek explores the watery world of jungle life.
Rainforests are some of the wettest places on the planet and none more so than the Amazon. Standing at the top of Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world, Charlotte explains how the biggest river system in the world operates. Millions of tonnes of water pours into 11,000 tributaries of the Amazon Basin each year.
The waterways are the main arteries for the animals too, and along the rivers and lakes are some of the best jungle spectacles in the world.
