The very best of Sir David Attenborough's early Zoo Quest TV adventures can now be seen as never before - in high-definition colour.

Thanks to a recent remarkable discovery in the BBC's film vaults, the best of David Attenborough's early Zoo Quest TV adventures can now be seen in colour, and with them the remarkable story of how this pioneering television series was made.

First broadcast in December 1954, Zoo Quest launched the career of the young David Attenborough as a wildlife presenter and completely changed how viewers saw the world. One of the most popular television series of its time, it revealed wildlife and tribal communities that had never been filmed or even seen before.

Broadcast 10 years before colour television was available in the UK, Zoo Quest was thought to have been filmed in black and white, until now. Using this newly found colour film, together with new behind-the-scenes stories from David Attenborough and cameraman Charles Lagus, this special showcases the very best of the series.

Drop in and watch these incredible moments of wildlife film history for free in a cosy corner of our Origins Gallery throughout the July school holidays.
