Jungles - People of the Trees

Series 1 - Episode 4 Jungles - People of the Trees



The ingenious survival techniques used by people who live in rainforests, home to more species of plants and animals than any other habitat on Earth. The Matis tribe of Brazil carve blow-pipes to hunt monkeys in almost total silence, while deep in the Congo forests a man scales a giant tree and contends with a swarm of bees to collect honey for his family. Three children from Venezuela's Piaroa tribe search for tarantulas for lunch, and a high-rise home is constructed in West Papua. Narrated by John Hurt.
