The Fastest Claw in the West Narrated by David Attenborough Killer crustaceans?
The stars of this award-winning film are shrimps - but shrimps with a knock-out punch that would make Frank Bruno gasp in amazement.
They're called mantis shrimps and their strike is one of the fastest animal movements known - its impact is the equivalent of a .22-calibre bullet. They use jagged spears or huge clubs with devastating results.
They can even punch through glass and often batter their way out of aquaria.

Chernobyl - 'Nobody
Thought it Could Happen'
Tonight Panorama premieres a Soviet television documentary called Warning that reveals how ordinary
Russian people dealt with the aftermath of the world's biggest nuclear accident.
More that 100,000 people were evacuated from the area around Chemobyl, leaving behind their belongings - even their animals - because the authorities were afraid of infection.
Local authorities were helpless in the face of such danger. Local committees began by trying to cover up the scale of the disaster. This documentary shows for the first time the immediate devastation at Chernobyl's Block 4, including rare pictures of the core of the reactor - the graphite melting and emitting radioactive particles. Soviet television raises questions about the disaster nobody thought could happen.
Produced by SOVIET CENTRAL TV

Robert Mitchum stars as Quinlan, the seedy but stubborn ex-narcotics agent, who attempts to bust the vicious drug gangs and unmask the men behind the scenes with the aid of an Amsterdam-based dealer turned police informant.
