Summary
Sheep Dog Trials Three little woollies at a Sydney sheep show are just waiting for their cue to round up the charges. Mountaineering and Birds The barren peaks on the wild Magaliesberg Mountains of the Transvaal are the home of many species of wild bird, and students of natural history take their lives in their hands as they plod up the dangerous heights to study the birds at close quarters. Elephants Bathing Taking an elephant for an airing is a big job. But in spite of their size these Kandy elephants are as light on their feet as a ballet dancer - and one of life’s joys is a bath.
