A grand tour of some of the world's outstanding zoos with Anthony Smith
Set in a quiet park not far from the Brandenburg Gate and within a mile of the Berlin Wall, this is a zoo of contrasts - a place where it's not the roar of lions that attracts attention but the pneumatic drills rebuilding a zoo almost totally destroyed 26 years ago. But despite the bombing, despite political difficulties, air corridors, and transport problems - food has to be brought some 200 miles from West Germany to keep the animals alive-the zoo has fully regained its international reputation and has the largest animal collection in Europe.
"I don't order you to attack. I order you to die."
With this command to his troops Mustafa Kemal launched an attack on the Anzacs at Gallipoli in 1915. After the Turkish victory he became a national hero and led his country to victory in their subsequent struggle for independence.
Against incredible odds, with a peasant army and home-made equipment, Kemal drove all foreign invaders from Turkish soil and abolished the corrupt government of the Sultan. By his vitality, strength of will, and dynamic personality, he dragged a beaten, backward country into the 20th century and was hailed as Ataturk - Father of the Turks.

The last of seven programmes in which Summer Review offers a repeat of the best work done in Review during the past season.
Anthony Rossiter paints and writes in a Somerset farmhouse. His inspiration is the beauty of the countryside and the simple things around him. But there is a darker side, when his world becomes a 'landscape of fear,' and he swings uncontrollably from an intense joy and vision to periods of despair and madness: his autobiography is called The Pendulum. In this film he retraces some of his experiences and describes their impact on his work.
W.H. Auden reads three of his own poems.
