An ambitious new natural history format following a team of naturalists and wildlife filmmakers on a unique expedition into the most biodiverse region of the Amazon rainforest. Their mission is to attempt to install a network of remotely operated cameras and mini-cams, in the richest jungle on the planet, to capture the intimate lives of the wildlife here in whole new way.

Their rig of cameras is fixed across all levels of the rainforest, from down on its dark forest floor right up to its towering tangled canopy 300 feet up in the air. By filming 24/7, day and night, the filmmakers capture the lives of remarkable creatures and discover the incredible tricks that these animals use to survive in this extreme jungle. From agile pygmy marmosets and boisterous howler monkeys, to solitary pumas and mesmerising leaf-cutter ants, they meet a whole host of incredible animal characters carving out a living in this incredible tropical world.

Following the camera crew’s expedition over a month in the Amazon, the show combines stunning natural history footage, the latest camera technology and immersive observational documentary, to uncover the wild secrets of the rainforest like never before.
