David Attenborough narrates the story of the island in the Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of Africa. It has an ecosystem that has stood in isolation for millions of years, and produced an array of wildlife that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. He begins by observing lemurs in their habitat, male red giraffe-necked weevils fighting each other, the courting rituals of chameleons, and the behaviour of spiders and fossas.
