BBC Worldwide and the Smithsonian Channel are coproducing a 3 x 60-minute series that will bring filmmakers from the BBC’s Natural History Unit and scientists from the Smithsonian Institution into the deep jungle wilderness of Burma.

Wild Burma: Nature’s Lost Kingdom (air date to be announced) will team wildlife filmmakers Gordon Buchanan and Justine Evans with Smithsonian scientists as they explore the dense forests of the region, in search of rare and iconic species which will serve as evidence for the need to protect and preserve the relatively untouched wilderness.

The series, which will air on BBC2 in the UK, follows the team as they endeavor to find such rare and endangered animals as the Asian elephant, the Asian golden cat and the clouded leopard.

Wild Burma: Nature’s Lost Kingdom is produced by the BBC’s Natural History Unit and series produced by Susanna Handslip. The executive producers are Tim Scoones and Tim Martin.
