Introduced by Jeffery Boswall The Private Life of the Cuckoo
The bizarre life-style of the cuckoo is unique among European birds. This film tells the story of a pair of cuckoos that conduct their cuckolding in a colony of reed warblers. The hen lays 12 eggs, each in the nest of a foster-parent. The young squatter cuckoo on hatching, evicts the warbler eggs or chicks and takes for itself all the food the nanny warbler can collect. When the juvenile cuckoo is full grown it completely dwarfs the warblers but they continue to feed it until it flies off.
Many people regard cuckoos as clever or cruel, or both. By our standards they may be, but cuckoos are not humans, they are birds: birds with a simply amazing life-style as this extraordinary film shows.

Indian ground worker:
Fyfe Robertson has seen the aeroplane progress from fun for a few to transport for many and, since jets especially, a magic carpet for holiday millions.
'When I walk around in a wide-bodied jumbo jet, or watch Concorde nosing down from the sky, or enter a great airport, I never fail to marvel that these things have come well within a single life-span.'
