Last Chance To See

Douglas Noel Adams was an English author, scriptwriter, essayist, humorist, satirist and dramatist. Adams was the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Mark Carwardine is a British zoologist, a leading and outspoken conservationist, and a prolific broadcaster, columnist and photographer. In 1985 the Observer Colour Magazine paired up Mark Carwardine and Douglas Adams and invited them to travel to Madagascar in search of the aye-aye, a strange and little known nocturnal lemur thought to be on the edge of extinction. Douglas and Mark found that they enjoyed the journey, and each other's company, to such a degree that they decided to spend a year travelling the globe in search of other endangered animals. In 1990 the book Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine was published. This book describes various adventures that duo had encountered on journeys, often with a comic tone. In a series of expeditions, the authors encounter mountain gorillas and white rhinos in Zaire, rare kestrels in Mauritius, and kakapos in New Zealand. In 2001 Douglas and Mark were discussing the possibility of new adventures, but before plans were made Douglas suffered a heart attack and died. Stephen Fry was a close friend of Douglas Adams. In 2008-2009, exactly 20 years after the original journey, Stephen and Mark head off to see what has become of the animals in two decades, and to discover what has affected their fortunes.
