Sir David Attenborough's crew unveils the jungle torment that films the new BBC show

The crew of Sir David Attenborough suffered two and a half years of jungle torture when he shot his new BBC show, which dealt with snakes, scorpions, bloodsucking flies and swarms of bees.

New Series Dynasties deals with the family life of Emperor Penguins, Lions, Wolves and Tigers in dwindling habitats – Episode 1, which focuses on male male chimpanzee David trying to defend his position from younger rivals.

But it was the scary creepy-crawlies that pushed the team to its limits in the steaming West African jungles of the Kedougou region in southeastern Senegal.

The crew woke up regularly at 3:30 am and walked 15 miles to find the troupe of endangered chimpanzees.
