Mark Lewis's short film from 1988 about the introduction of cane toads to Australia in the 1930s. His latest film - 'Cane Toads: The Conquest' - was released in 2010.

The cane toad was introduced to Queensland in an attempt to control the cane beetle grub which ravaged sugar cane planatations. Since this program was made, the toad has spread much further and has now reached the northern area of Western Australia.

Attempts are still being made to control the spread of the toads, so far without success. It has never shown the slightest interest in preying on the grubs.
