The Correspondents' Animal Menagerie

25 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 08 February 2014

Reports from correspondents whose encounters with animals cast light on issues of global significance. In Thailand, Becky Palmstrom discovers that it is not just the fish who get trapped by the seafood industry. Matthew Teller follows the wolves under threat from hunters in Sweden, while Georgina Kenyon is served up a dish too cute and furry for her tastes in Belize. At a camel beauty contest in Abu Dhabi, Simon Atkinson discovers the secret to dromedary allure. And we revisit the moment, in 2007, when an eagle rudely awakened Hamilton Wende in Zambia.

Presenter: Pascale Harter
Producer: Ben Weisz
