Join Britain's best-loved wit and raconteur Stephen Fry as he follows in the footsteps of his great friend the late writer Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) along with zoologist Mark Carwardine to remote parts in search of some of the rarest and most threatened animals on Earth. Twenty years ago Carwardine teamed up with Adams and embarked on a groundbreaking expedition in search of some of the world's most endangered animals. This time he is joined by Stephen Fry to see how all those animals have been faring in the years since and which if any survived. In this programme we follow the duo on six separate journeys which take them from the steamy jungles of the Amazon to the ice-covered mountain tops of New Zealand and from the edge of a war zone in Central Africa to a sub-tropical paradise in the North Pacific. Along the way they search for some of the weirdest most remarkable and most troubled creatures on earth: a large black sleepy animal easily mistaken for an unusually listless mudbank a parrot with a song like an unreleased collection of Pink Floyd studio outtakes a rhino with square lips a dragon with deadly saliva an animal roughly the length of a Boeing 737 and the creature most likely to emerge from the cargo doors of a spaceship. Last Chance to See is a unique insight into the disappearing world around us and this is their hilarious entertaining informative and thought-provoking adventure.

March Of The Penguins | Blu Ray | (07/05/2007)
from £4.37 | Saving you £20.62 (82.50%) | RRP
Coming from a French director Luc Jacquet the Oscar-winning family documentary March Of The Penguins would have to be a love story. And it is in that it follows the mating rituals of the emperor penguin one of the most resilient animals on earth. Each summer after a nourishing period of deep-sea feeding the penguins pop up onto the ice and begin their procession across the frozen tundra of Antarctica. Walking in single file they are a sight to behold. Hundreds converge from every direction moving instinctively toward their mating ground. Once there they mingle and chatter until they find the perfect mate - a monogamous match that will last a year through the brutal winter and into the spring. During that time the mother will birth an egg and then leave for the ocean to feed again. The father will stay to protect the egg through the freezing blizzards and pure darkness of winter which would be deadly to practically any other species. Finally with spring the egg hatches and the baby penguins are born. Mothers return from the sea to reunite with their families and feed the starving newborns while the fathers are finally relieved of their protective duties after months without food. The film is remarkable in its story which is narrated by Morgan Freeman whose dignified voice gives the penguins the grave admiration they deserve. But even more incredible is its photography which shows the penguins hunting underwater sliding on the ice and in the midst of kissing. At one point the camera even zooms inside the mouth of a penguin as it regurgitates for its young. A story of love and more strikingly survival March Of The Penguins is any eye-opening and educational experience.
