Join Britain's best-loved wit and raconteur, Stephen Fry, as he follows in the footsteps of his great friend, the late writer Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), along with zoologist Mark Carwardine, to remote parts in search of some of the rarest and most threatened animals on Earth.

Twenty years ago Carwardine teamed up with Adams and embarked on a groundbreaking expedition in search of some of the world's most endangered animals. This time, he is joined by Stephen Fry to see how all those animals have been faring in the years since and which, if any, survived.

In this programme we follow the duo on six separate journeys which take them from the steamy jungles of the Amazon to the ice-covered mountain tops of New Zealand and from the edge of a war zone in Central Africa to a sub-tropical paradise in the North Pacific. Along the way, they search for some of the weirdest, most remarkable and most troubled creatures on earth: a large, black, sleepy animal easily mistaken for an unusually listless mudbank, a parrot with a song like an unreleased collection of Pink Floyd studio outtakes, a rhino with square lips, a dragon with deadly saliva, an animal roughly the length of a Boeing 737 and the creature most likely to emerge from the cargo doors of a spaceship.

Last Chance to See is a unique insight into the disappearing world around us, and this is their hilarious, entertaining, informative and thought-provoking adventure.


Synopsis
Twenty years after HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY writer Douglas Adams and his friend, naturalist, Mark Carwardine travelled the globe in search of endangered animals (the progress of which was documented in the popular BBC radio series and companion book LAST CHANCE TO SEE), their amazing journey is retraced and reevaluated in this fascinating TV series. Adams' death in 2001 sadly put an end to the duo's adventures, so this series see his longtime friend, comedy legend Stephen Fry take up the challenge. Fry and Carwardine barely knew each other which makes their initial mission to find the Amazonian Manatee endearingly awkward, with both clearly intimidated by each others' vast knowledge. But the elusive manatee is just the tip of the iceberg, other episodes follow the trail of the Northern White Rhino, man-eating Komodo dragons, a flightless parrot, man's closest living relative, the pygmy chimpanzee and much more. As the pair re-investigate the disappearing animals of the world, the series highlights the worrying immediacy of extinction and what can be done to help prevent it.
