Magical Forest
3. Magical Forest
February 6, 2000
Kangaroos in trees and flying foxes - nowhere else are there animals as weird and wonderful as in the forests of Indonesia. The forests are home to the World's largest flower, Rafflesia, and Amorphophallus, which has an 11ft flower spike. Up in the canopy are the people who live in fragile homes perched precariously in the highest branches.
Underwater Wonderland

January 30, 2000
In Indonesia's underwater wonderland, flamboyant reef fish, huge manta rays and shimmering schools of barracudas ride the strong currents that flow between the 17,000 islands that form stepping-stones between Asia and Australia. The coral reefs are the rainforests of the sea, home to huge variety of life including whale sharks and the bizarre mimic octopus. While off the island of Sulawesi, the Bajau people, known as sea gypsies, live on the water.
Island Castaways
1. Island Castaways
January 23, 2000
Indonesia was created by volcanic eruptions 150 million years ago. Today, there are 155 active volcanoes in Indonesia, and one erupts every day. Heavyweight Komodo dragons throw themselves at each other as they do battle for a mate. On Sulawesi, weird maleo birds incubate their huge eggs in hot volcanic sand and on Borneo proboscis monkeys leap across rivers, trying to avoid falling into the mouths of waiting crocodiles.
