Oddie is going, we are told, “to ask questions that no one has dared to ask before: “Do trees tell tales? Are there jazz birds and classical birds? Why is the neighbourhood fox obsessed with my plastic statue of Jesus?” It could set your teeth on edge, or it could be oddly inspired and, as Oddie hopes, open our eyes (and ears) to the quirkier side of the wildlife around us: here's hoping.[/FONT]

This delightful film follows Sancho's progress as he becomes an adult and learns how to survive in the wild.
