BBC to Produce Burma Nature Documentary Series
5 November 2013
BBC Two has announced plans to produce a series of three documentaries about wildlife in Burma. According to the BBC Media Center, the British broadcaster’s team of wildlife filmmakers, together with scientists from the Smithsonian Institution, will be the first to gain access to the little-known jungle wilderness of Burma in more than 50 years. The series, to be called “Wild Burma: Nature’s Lost Kingdom,” will consist of three 60-minute episodes. The program’s aim is to “present a compelling list of rare and iconic species to the country’s policy makers with a view to persuading them to safeguard the future of these vital wilderness areas,” the media center said on its website.
