Terry Pratchett: Facing Extinction
Eighteen years ago Sir Terry Pratchett had a life-changing experience in the jungles of Borneo, where he encoutered Orangutans in the wild.
Now he’s going back to find out what the future holds for these endangered species, and discover a new threat to their habitat that could push them to the brink of extinction.
His Alzheimer’s will make the trip an incredible challenge both physically and mentally, as he contemplates the role of mankind in the eradication of the planet’s species and considers his own inevitable extinction.
Originally broadcast on BBC Two, Wednesday 27 March 2013.
