An African elephant at home – photograph taken by Frederik Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Lehn
This powerful documentary is about a giant and those who knew him. It is fascinating, sad … and so important to watch.
Sir David Attenborough is with us from start to finish. It is he who picks through the evidence to show us the life and times of Jumbo, the celebrity Victorian elephant.
This film, a collage of memory and story, nightmare and fact, holds high the war-shattered image of Naples. It takes us amongst the ruins to show us desperate lives caught up in battle and destruction.
We are not asked to pity or excuse … only to understand, and to witness the consequences of a year of war in a city targeted for its strategic importance.
