    For people interested in abandoned places there is a film from 2016 documenting some of them. You might even recognise some of the places...

    Homo sapiens (2016) - IMDb

    It's a beautiful movie, in all its simplicity.

    (Apologies if this has been posted before, I didn't see it.)

    Just watched a BBC show about Borneo. The forest there... is not friendly. Giant leeches eat giant worms. Giant stomachs, Pitcher plants, hang around dissolving things. Few mammals. Mini-hawks, proboscis monkeys, speedy shrews, not much else, yet it's the 4th or 5th largest island in the world.

    I'd love to watch that, but it doesn't seem to be available in the UK.

    Do you remember what that was called? Was it this documentary from 1964? Jungle Green: Borneo

    Looks like it was an episode of 'Lands of the Monsoon'.
