David Attenborough returns to the isl& of Madagascar on a very personal quest. In 1960 he visited the isl& to film one of his first ever wildlife series, Zoo Quest. Whilst he was there, he acquired a giant egg. It was the egg of an extinct bird known as the 'elephant bird' - the largest bird that ever lived. It has been one of his most treasured possessions ever since. Fifty years older, he now returns to the isl& to find out more about this amazing creature & to see how the isl& has changed. Could the elephant bird's fate provide lessons that may help protect Madagascar's remaining wildlife?
Using Zoo Quest archive & specially shot location footage, this film follows David as he revisits scenes from his youth & meets people at the front line of wildlife protection. On his return, scientists at Oxford University are able to reveal for the first time how old David's egg actually is - & what that might tell us about the legendary elephant bird.
