The Fall of Toad Hall

by Syd Briscoe

The Wildlife Trusts: “The Wind in the Willows” - 2 mins

This beautifully animated film for The Wildlife Trusts draws attention to the challenges facing Britain's native species in a whimsical manner.

In an age of countless reboots and remakes, classic characters from 'The Wind in the Willows' are the latest to ride again - although Mr Toad and friends find themselves in a very different landscape from the rural idyll they're used to.

The countryside adopts a much more apocalyptic vibe here, as rivers become polluted, animal homes are destroyed to make way for roads, and fields become graveyards for extinct species. Timely intervention is needed to reverse the process, and this ad reminds us that our furry friends can't handle the clean-up alone.
