Judi Dench's Wild Borneo Adventure

Judi Dench's Wild Borneo Adventure has delighted audiences, but where exactly is it?

Dame Judi Dench is a bonafide national treasure, having delivered consistently exceptional work across the decades. 

She's shown audiences her remarkable talents in such efforts as Philomena, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Ladies in Lavender and A Room With a View - just to name a few. 

However, she's perhaps best known for reprising the role of M in the James Bond franchise throughout her career, being given an emotional send-off in 2012's Skyfall

The actress has always come across as irresistibly charming and genuine, so with great pleasure, audiences have been invited to accompany her on this latest adventure...

If you're a fan, then Judi Dench's Wild Borneo Adventure is too good of a time to pass up. 

The ITV documentary series sees Dench escape her character-work, let loose and be herself; that doesn't mean the cameras are far away of course!

We chronicle her trip as she explores gorgeous rainforests and acquaints herself with the majestic wildlife that the greenery homes. As you'd expect, Dench mingling with nature is as wonderfully entertaining as it sounds, but you may be wondering where exactly Borneo is located.    

Where is Borneo?

As highlighted by Wikipedia, Borneo is the largest island in Asia and the third-largest in the entire world. "At the geographic centre of Maritime Southeast Asia, in relation to major Indonesian islands, it is located north of Java, west of Sulawesi, and east of Sumatra."

So, why Borneo in particular?

Well, it appears that the island boasts one of Earth's oldest rainforests; the show has beautifully captured this marvel. 

Throughout the first episode, she was in awe of her surroundings; “It takes your breath away,” she expresses. “It’s not like anything I’ve ever experienced before.” The things she witnesses are right there for us to enjoy too, still appearing spectacular through a screen. 

 

How many episodes?

Sadly, there are only two episodes. 

The second will air on ITV at 21:00 on Tuesday, July 9th 2019. Be sure not to miss it!
