Each autumn millions of wild ducks, geese, and other birds migrate southwards through the United States to their winter quarters. This film follows them to the Mexico border and shows some of the work of the us Fish and Wildlife Service, which has to strike a fine balance between providing sport for the American hunters and ensuring the protection of rarer species. Among these is the entire world population of one of the rarest birds of all - the Whooping Crane.
Filmed by RONALD and ROSEMARY EASTMAN Directed and produced by CHRISTOPHER PARSONS

A Devonshire Farm
June 1968 - June 1969
Never sure of the weather, animal health, or Government subsidies, the farmer of today must be an accountant, scientist, labourer, and above all, optimist.
Such is the life of GEORGE DAY , who attempts through the year to harness nature to his advantage on his farm in the attractive valley of the River Exe. Will his year be too wet or too dry, too cold or warm, diseased? Profitable or not? It is a continuous struggle of man and nature.
