Natural World, 2008-2009 Episode 13 of 16

Wildlife documentary. Six feet tall, 13 stone, and armed with five-inch claws, cassowaries are birds that deserve respect. So when a cyclone forced dozens of cassowaries out of Australian rainforests and into towns, there was bound to be trouble.

This film follows the dramatic attempts to save these endangered giant birds, and reveals their fascinating natural history for the first time. Narrated by David Attenborough.
