Cambodia: The Lost World of the Khmer Rouge - Journeys to the Ends of the Earth (2001)
It takes courage to travel to the harshest places on Earth and come back with pictures so good they’re printed in 25 countries around the world. It takes vision to turn a passion for travel into a brilliant travel/adventure TV show, and that’s what David Adams has done with Journeys to the Ends of the Earth.
Cambodia: The Lost World of the Khmer Rouge
The Cardamom Mountains in Cambodia are how Asia used to be. A surviving pocket of intact wildlife & wilderness that’s been untouched by history. And not just any history. It’s survived Year Zero. Pol Pot. The Killing Fields. History at its most vicious. David Adams enters this lost world in search of the khting vor, a mysterious snake-eating animal known as the “Cambodian unicorn” which was until recently believed to be extinct. On his journey he runs the gauntlet of renegade bands of the Khmer Rouge and Mekong River pirates, goes trapping tigers and discovers the jungle-choked remains of what was once the biggest city on Earth.
