National Geographic Documentary

     Join National Geographic photographer Tim Laman and ornithologist Ed Scholes as they journey deep into the most remote jungles on earth in search of all 39 species of some of the most amazing birds in the world – Birds of Paradise. Their mission takes them into the jungles of one of the last wild places on earth – New Guinea. Far-flung islands, impenetrable jungle and extreme elevations all create areas of isolation where ordinary birds have evolved into some of the most beautifully bizarre species on earth. Digital explorers on an old-fashioned quest, Tim and Ed have survived everything the jungle has to throw at them to becomes first in the world to capture all 39 species of Birds of Paradise on film.

This 45-minute documentary shows some of the behind-the-scenes work that went into capturing never-before-recorded behaviors of a few of these spectacular species.
