Episode of Series “Up a gum tree”.
Two hundred million years ago the giant continent Gondwanaland split and Australia drifted away. Its plants and animals evolved in isolation from the rest of the world. How does a tree used as a prison fit into the story and what are the secrets of the gum tree’s success? Narrated by David Bellamy.
