Tropical Fever

We tend to equate paradise with the lush, fertile tropics... ignoring the hardships of life in humid conditions, with insects, wild animals and deadly diseases on all side. The three-part ZDF series Tropical Fever presents three explorers over the last 500 years, now virtually forgotten, who have shaped the myth of the tropics - and introduces three modern "heroes" in these same regions today.
