1 Ark of the Waterhole. A dramatic 24-hour day-night sound portrait of events at a waterhole in Kenya. Wildebeests and colobus monkeys join a hammerkop (bird) as the sun rises above the horizon and heats the forest surrounding this main source of African life. Then a downpour cools the air. Later, mating crested cranes, elephants, masked weaver birds, lions, a giant forest pig, hippos, and a funny-sounding chorus of tree hyrax all lend their wonderful voices to this natural performance.

2 The Mighty, Great Gorilla. The mountain gorilla lives in ever-shrinking preserves high in the rain forest of central east Africa. Nearly every day begins with a rainstorm. The fragile rhythm of gorilla life includes families playing, lovingly interacting with the newborn and young, foraging for tender bamboo shoots, and clinging to their lives among the exotic sounds of insects, birds, and other mammals sharing the habitat with them.
