Cane Toads: An Unnatural History / The Natural History of the Chicken

A DVD Double Feature. "Cane Toads: An Unnatural History" (1987) - In a unique blend of personal anecdote and absurd fact this documentary exposes one of the most bizarre biological blunders of all time. It is a quirky, offbeat film, made by an exciting new filmmaking talent. 'They pose a bigger menace than the German Army in World War II' - Mr Tip Byrne, Cane Grower, Tully, Qld. "The Natural History of the Chicken" (2000) - Director Mark Lewis' follow-up to his wry "Cane Toads" and "The Wonderful World of Dogs" trades in the same bewildered sensibilities and if you can believe it, the stories of strange animal-human bonds are even better this time: mouth-to-mouth resuscitation of a frozen chicken, the headless howler and cock-raising run amok, plus some subtle jabs at the horrific chicken farming industry.
