Martin Clunes realises a childhood dream of visiting the Indian ocean island of Madagascar to see the threatened species of lemurs for a documentary for ITV1.
Moved by the plight of the planet’s last surviving lemurs, Martin sets out to explore what is being done to save them and their environment.
These iconic and endearing primates live only on Madagascar, and one by one, they are dying there. The forests where they thrived have been destroyed, and the lemurs are hunted and eaten by man. Seventeen species are already extinct. This paradise island has turned into their hell. Only a miracle will save them all now.
