Audio slideshow: Exploring Africa


David Attenborough takes a breathtaking journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa as it’s never been seen before.

From the soaring Atlas Mountains to the Cape of Good Hope, the brooding jungles of the Congo to the raging Atlantic Ocean, Africa – filmed over four years – explores the whole continent, uncovering bizarre new creatures and extraordinary behaviours.

With music composed for the series by Sarah Class, series producer James Honeyborne, producer Simon Blakeney and director Felicity Egerton talk about the experience of making Africa, highlights from their time filming and discuss some of their favourite photographs from the series.

Africa will be broadcast on 2 January 2013 at 21:00 on BBC One.

Produced by Dualtagh Herr. Music by Sarah Class.
