David Attenborough, Britain's voice of natural history, narrates his early adventures in the wilds of Indonesia

David Attenborough's books and broadcasts have opened the incredible world of natural history to millions of viewers and listeners. Zoo Quest for a Dragon takes us back to one of his earliest projects, when the BBC and London Zoo joined forces on several animal-collecting expeditions.

This behind-the-scenes look at how the first programmes were made reveals moments of hardship on horseback, canoe and in a wreck of a jeep through swamp, desert and rainforest. Attenborough tells of danger on the crew's hazardous boat trip with a gun-smuggling captain and the terror of erupting volcanoes.

He also depicts for the listener some of the incredible sights he and his team witnessed - breathtaking butterflies, taking tea with Charlie the orang-utan and the the voyage to the little-known island of Komodo to capture the elusive Komodo Dragon.

Specially recorded for audio, David Attenborough's early adventures are sometimes life-threatening, often hilarious and always totally absorbing.The warmth and enthusiasm that have made him a broadcasting legend are instantly apparent here as he recounts this magical journey.
