    These are quiite good programmes, nice if you fancy something to watch at the end of the day that is pleasant without being completely moronic and it doesn't spend half the programme constantly telling you what's 'coming up'. It's also good to see and find out more about the Highland Wildlife Park which I find one of the more interesting collections in the UK.
