First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on CBeebies HD

Why do zebras have stripes and leopards spots, rhinos horns and camels humps? Tinga Tinga Tales tells a modern, young audience what really happened.

There was a time when Woodpecker didn't peck. All the birds had their very own sound, but Woodpecker didn't make a sound at all. Then one very dark night in Tinga Tinga, the moon and the stars disappeared! The animals summoned the birds to tell Lion, but Woodpecker couldn't pass the message on. Show less
