The World About Us (1967 - 1987): The Wildlife of New York  (1973)

Clapperboard held by (?)

New York - the ultimate in man-made environments and the last place to make a wildlife film... or is it?  There are, in fact, parakeets nesting in air-conditioners and Western jack-rabbits living alongside the jets at Kennedy Airport; so it's not just the usual opportunists like squirrels and pigeons who have found their niches.  In New York it's short-sighted to see only the people, concrete and glass in front of your eyes.  This film reveals a new kind of jungle in which an astounding variety of plants and creatures have found the necessary resiliance, adaptability and tolerance to survive and prosper.
