Brazil is a land of gigantic proportions. This one country is similar in size to Europe and the USA. Brazil is energetic, flamboyant and fun, but also overwhelmingly beautiful. Within its mountains, seas, rainforests, deserts and millions of miles of rivers, are many of our planet’s last wild frontiers. Its diversity of life and landscape is second to none. Brazil is a rapidly developing and increasingly important country. In 2014 it will host the football World Cup and two years later South America’s first Olympic Games.

 

Yet, surprisingly, this will be the first series on wild Brazil; and most of its animals and places are still little known. This series explores five spectacular worlds. In each episode the viewer will be taken on a journey across fabulous landscapes and will meet a few carefully selected charismatic and little known animal species. The series will investigate their fight for survival and their amazing adaptations to their environment. It will show behaviour that will surprise even avid nature lovers.

 

The latest in HD technology including super slow-motion, night vision cameras, boroscopes and extreme macro photography will bring Brazil’s mysterious carnivores, secretive sea life, astounding insects, and much more to life. Gyro-stabilised aerials will reveal a Brazil that has never been seen before. The style will be extremely cinematographic, using the latest motion picture technologies to make this series an emotionally moving experience.
