Saturday Night at the Movies - 17 May 2014

Howard Goodall ventures into the animal kingdom at the movies.

This week, Howard Goodall is going animal mad on Saturday Night at the Movies, celebrating the silver screen's finest non-humans.

His cinematic journey through the animal kingdom goes from the farmyard with Babe to the Amazon with Rio 2, via Antarctica in March of the Penguins. 

In between he dips his toe into murky waters with Jaws - and its ominous music by John Williams - and travels to Africa to see The Lion King.

And there's a celebration of the best screen pets too, such as Uggy the dog in The Artist and Hedwig the owl in Harry Potter.
