with Anthony Smith Okefenokee Swamp
This is a wilderness with a difference - an ' instant' wild experience for people in their thousands to enjoy alligators and deer in the watery beauty of a cypress swamp. Okefenokee seems to confirm the need to preserve wild places for people to wonder at, escape into, get lost in. But can a wilderness filled by visitors remain a true wilderness?

How on Earth Did They Do That? How did King Kong strip Fay Wray ? How did the tornado carry Dorothy's house to the land of Oz? This programme shows how the cinema has depended on special effects since the very first films, and is a tribute to the skill and ingenuity that makes directors' dreams come true.
