Burma has been closed off to the world for over five decades. Now, for the first time, a team of scientists and wildlife filmmakers has been allowed access to explore this uncharted wilderness.

Burma is rumoured to be home to a treasure trove of wildlife. Decades of military dictatorship have meant that its impenetrable jungles remain full of secrets.

In this three-part series, a team of scientists and wildlife filmmakers find out whether Burma’s vast forests could be the last stronghold for iconic species already lost and endangered in the rest of the world. Can they find new species that will help ensure these vitally important habitats remain untouched for the future?

Expedition Burma premieres on Thursday (20 November) at 10:50pm (SIN/HK) on BBC Knowledge.
