Cane Toads - Cane Toads is a documentary detailing the spread of Hawaiian sugar-cane toads (toads which live in the cane fields) through Queensland and then into the rest of Australia following a mis-informed attempt to introduce them to counter pests. Turns out they wouldn't eat the 'cane grubs' but they would multiply like no one's business... and they have no natural enemies in Australia at all, partly due to their poisonous skin. CHICKEN- Whilst most of us know chicken from our dinner plates, few of us pause to consider this bird's many virtues. This new film by Mark Lewis delightfully discovers how this seemingly simple animal reveals itself to be as complex as any of God's creatures. The stories are illustrated with narrative vignettes depicting these birds at their magical best, inspiring facination and gentle humour. The film allows us to rethink our relationship with a creature we have previously taken for granted, while at the same time providing a lens by which we look at ourselves. It is the "natural history" for an animal like no other.
