Episode InformationThe islands of Indonesia are a wild paradise of giant flowers and coral gardens, of dragons, tigers, giant apes and glorious birds of paradise. Incredibly, 15% of all the world's species can be found in this unique region. This island chain straddles the equator, and was forged by fire. Violent volcanic eruptions created more than 10,000 separate islands - some huge, others merely a speck of rock. Indonesia is a centre of bio-diversity that is unmatched anywhere else in the world, and is one of the last genuinely wild frontiers. This is a story of invasion, extinction, isolation and evolution on an unparalleled scale. Wildest Indonesia explores the incredible wildlife of this extraordinary archipelago and reveals the remarkable ways in which life has been created, adapted and re-born over millions of years of natural selection.
