> On only its 3rd night on-air, Channel 4 screened The Animals Film broadcasting it entirely uninterrupted by any commercial breaks. This remarkable, pioneering and definitive documentary about the exploitation of animals in modern society caused huge shockwaves and received worldwide critical acclaim: Pick-of-the-Week & Pick-of-the-Day in all UK national newspapers, and extensively covered in front-page news and feature stories across the world. 25 years after its release, this controversial classic is still shockingly relevant today in its analysis. With music by Talking Heads and Robert Wyatt.
