David Attenborough's all about the new series this week. Here he takes a breathtaking journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa as it's never been seen before. From the soaring Atlas Mountains to the Cape of Good Hope, the brooding jungles of the Congo to the raging Atlantic Ocean, filmed over four years, Africa explores the whole continent using the latest in filming technology, including remote HD cameras. He begins in the Kalahari desert, Africa's south-west corner, where clever meerkats are outsmarted by a wily bird's use of mimicry, a solitary rhino is seen to exhibit previously unknown sociable behaviours, terrifying insects prey on baby birds and the rarest fish in the world is filmed for the first time.
Africa. BBC1: 9.00pm
