Synopsis by Sally Barber
Internationally known naturalist and broadcaster of wildlife programs David Attenborough leads viewers on a 12-part expedition to the world's major habitats, showing how plants and animals have adapted to their unique surroundings. The entertaining and inspirational programs reveal places and sounds never before captured by cameras. In volume ten, Worlds Apart, Attenborough examines island life, how plants and animals came to the isolated locations, and how they survive. The natural scientist takes viewers on a guided tour of Aldabra Island in the Indian Ocean where giant tortoises exist amidst a harsh and rugged habitat of coral rock. Other episodes in the series are: Baking Deserts, The Sky Above -- Communities of the Sky, The Frozen World, Jungle, The Margins of Land, New Worlds, The Northern Forests, The Open Oceans, Seas of Grass, Sweet Fresh Water, and The Building of Earth.
