The Screen Guide

To the north of Cape York, in the Gulf of Papua, lies one of the world's largest mangrove swamps, the size and diversity of which surpasses any such swamps in Australia. John Bunt explores the area for the government of Papua New Guinea, which proposes developing the area and erecting a dam on the Great Purari River. John Bunt and his team of scientists reveal the close relationship between the people of the area and their environment - a relationship so finely tuned that the proposed dam could permanently alter the people's lifestyle.
