In 1961, the Royal Society embarked on a four-month expedition to Mount Kinabalu. This historical film follows the account of Royal Society scientists and researchers as they explore the surrounding areas of Mount Kinabalu – one of the richest botanical regions in the world. Many discoveries arose from this expedition including the discovery of a new genus of oak. The film captures not only the scientists at work but offers a glimpse into the lives of the local community during this era.
