Natural World - Cuckoo (9th January 2009) [TV Rip, Xvid+mp3]
Cuckoo, part of the BBC's latest 2008 series for Natural World.
Quote From RadioTimes
Watching a film about the cuckoo, you can see how this eccentric bird came to be such a byword for trickery. It is an astonishing (and beautifully filmed) story of "a cheat, a thief and a killer", as David Attenborough tells us, a creature whose laborious deception reminds you of a politician who insists on lying when it would be so much easier to be honest: one expert here suggests the cuckoo would almost certainly have an easier time of it building its own nests rather than elaborately tricking smaller birds into adopting its young. But that's not the strangest part. The part of the story that'll have you gasping with fascinated horror is the scene, painstakingly filmed, when the ugly little day-old cuckoo chick instinctively heaves any fellow chicks out of the nest, to make sure it can have all the host's food. Chilling.
