      A real heart -in-the-mouth job! Somehow the unlikelihood of the chick surviving almost physically forces you to stop watching and you want to strangle the bloody parents waiting at the bottom and make them lay their eggs in a safer place. The clip emphasises the true meaning of an extreme adjective and shows how utterly inappropriate and ineffective graded adjectives would be. To set this up around an ambiguous initial sentence is pure genius. Hats most definitely off!

        Thanks Jennifer! Wildlife documentaries can be a great source of heart-in-the-mouth moments and a great source of classroom material!
