BBC Programmes worth seeing
Alan Lane kindly alerted us to the films about Wild Burma
“The BBC has a new series, of three episodes, running each Friday at 9pm that is called Wild Burma. The first of these programmes that was aired on Friday 29th November was located in the area of North West Burma in the Arakan Yomas hill tracts, where the team was searching for wild elephants in the jungles that run from Bangladesh and Lushai/Mizo Hills. As one might expect, the scenery was very similar
to the jungles and paddy fields of Assam and certainly brought memories flooding back for us ‘koi-hais’. It was a very enjoyable programme, and quite exciting when the BBC team of naturalists were walking up to the wild herds along elephant tracks through the thick bamboo growth.
The following two episodes will be on BBC 2 at 9pm on the 6th and 13th December.
For those of you who perhaps missed the first programme, it is available on BBC 2 iPlayer for the next five days – highly recommended viewing.”
