Episode Detail: Thailand: Jewel of the Orient - The Living Edens

“Thailand: Jewel of the Orient” explores the Southeast Asian nation's wildlife from the Buddhist perspectives of life's interconnectedness and its impermanence. “Life here has found a delicate balance,” says narrator Faye Dunaway. But sometimes, life isn't so delicate---a brown gibbon is seen chasing a black one from its tree, and mudskippers engage in a mudflat turf war. And, as the case of a deer's encounter with a tiger attests, it's certainly impermanent. “Life,” notes Dunaway, “becomes food for the living.”
