I watched this show, Wild World of Animals almost every Sunday evening. it was on before Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom (1-800-228-9800) and I always wanted to see the octopus episode, but it seems like they (and Wild Kingdom) were enamored of birds. thousands and thousands of birds.
I realize now that footage had to be easier to obtain.
anyway, the themes are pretty cool, but the end theme is way better. I didn't realize it was only produced for five years. it ran on the NBC affiliate in the 70s, then later on the PBS (no less) affiliate in the 80s.
I am going to re-buy this book. I think it has a cool "Mary Celeste" story in it, about what really happened to the crew. it's a nice tale, could make a really intense short movie.
