An Aye-aye, a boggle-eyed mammal from Madagascar

Our friends at the Douglas Adams Continuum are always happy to let us know the latest DNA-related news.

Zoologist Mark Carwardine and the late Douglas Adams' lively expeditions in search of some of the rarest and most threatened animals on Earth is transformed from its original radio and bestselling book format into a TV series. This time it's Stephen Fry at the helm with Carwardine, as they revisit the six featured endangered species and bring their stories right up to date.

From Madagascar to Mauritius and from China to the Congo, the pair will be guided by the ethereal presence of Douglas Adams, whose voice lives on loud and clear in scene-setting audio. As they track down these extraordinary creatures, Mark and Stephen will explain the ecological pickle they are now in and encounter the often eccentric characters whose determination, 15 years later, is still all that stands between them and extinction.

This unlikely partnership will make Last Chance to See a groundbreaking, informative and humorous TV series — a treat for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy buffs who will enjoy Douglas's ghostly presence, a joy for Stephen Fry fans and a thought-provoking report for anyone interested in the beauty and variety of Earth's wildlife.
