Told with a tongue-in-cheek style, this documentary tells the story of the introduction of the cane toad to Australia and some of the environmental consequences that have followed. The tale focuses on some quirky characters and individual experiences connected to the remorseless spread of the amphibian, with "toad-eye" views on much of the action. We also get explanations and expansions by a number of scientific speakers. One is left with a feeling of admiration for a species that can adapt so well to a new environment and seems to be able to thwart every effort to control it. Where I feel this programme lacked over others I have seen is that the full damage to the wildlife of Australia wasn't really made clear. The film concentrated on the social consequences and the effect on pets, notably a few sequences connected with dogs. All in all, the film makes an entertaining, humorous and informative wildlife documentary but, personally, I prefer something with a little more detail and scientific explanation.
