Zoo Quest in Colour: Starring David Attenborough DVD


First broadcast in December 1954, Zoo Quest was one of the most popular television series of its time and launched the career of the young David Attenborough as a wildlife presenter. Zoo Quest completely changed how viewers saw the world revealing wildlife and tribal communities that had never been filmed or even seen before. Broadcast ten years before colour television was seen in the UK, Zoo Quest was thought to have been filmed in black and white. Until now! Thanks to a recent remarkable discovery in the BBC's film vaults, the best of David Attenborough's early Zoo Quest adventures can now be seen as never before in stunning HD colour and with it the fascinating behind the scenes stories from David Attenborough and cameraman Charles Lagus of how this pioneering television series was made.

Colour footage of David Attenborough's early BBC documentary series. Originally aired in December 1954 in black and white, the programme was recently found to have been filmed in colour, courtesy of a chance discovery in the BBC archives. Attenborough travels to exotic locations in search of wildlife to take back to London Zoo and along the way meets the indigenous locals and learns about their customs. Selected footage from the show is presented here alongside interviews with Attenborough and his cameraman, Charles Lagus, in which they discuss their experiences of making the programme.
