Since the first white men entered Canada, stories of the wolf's ferocity have multiplied. But there is another side to the wolf story. This film is a rare opportunity to see how a wolf pack operates, both as a hunting unit and as a family and social group. Some remarkable photography, which shows the birth of cubs inside a den, also reveals the wolf in an unexpected role - that of a devoted and affectionate parent.

With this legendary creature now facing extinction in Canada, this film asks - is he really the 'big bad wolf'?

An affectionate tribute to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
In 1948 three Austrian refugees and an Englishman formed a partnership which was to transform the musical public's attitude to chamber music.
Norbert Brainin, Siegmund Nissel, Peter Schidlof and Martin Lovett have four very different personalities, but possess in common superb musicianship and a delicious sense of humour.
They are seen not only playing the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and others, but in rehearsal with Sir Michael Tippett, recording their latest disc of Haydn quartets, and in relaxed domesticity with their families.
Introduced by John Amis
