This week and every week television in this country brings us the stories and issues that concern us. The arguments, the evidence, the examination. We listen and we watch-sometimes we switch off or over-and then we make up our minds. But nearly all the coverage is seen through our eyes. Elsewhere in Europe the same process goes on-but there the view may be quite different.
Introduced this week by Derek Hart

A selection of outstanding feature-length travel and adventure films reflecting man's curiosity in the world around him
No Room for Wild Animals
Produced and directed by MICHAEL GRZlMEK
Michael Grzimek based the film on the book of the same title by his father, Dr. Bernard Grzimek. Both book and film are pleas for the preservation of the diminishing wildlife of Africa.
This film involved Michael Grzimek in a heavy personal sacrifice in order to raise money for its production, but it eventually won a first prize at the 1956 Berlin Festival, as well as two Golden Bear awards. Grzimek used his share of the profits for further work in Africa. He embarked on a long programme of research on the migration of the large herds of animals in the Serengeti, and it was on completion of this work that he was killed, when his light plane collided with a vulture. He was only twenty-four, but tonight's film with its outstanding pictures of African wildlife serves as a fitting and moving memorial to an ardent naturalist and promising young film director.
