This time of year is meant to be fun, but the twinkling lights, shiny shop fronts, looped yuletide tunes and nights out can make a hole in your pocket seem enormous. It's a reminder for many that they are out of work and can't afford to have the Christmas on display on the high street...

In four and a half billion years of existence there have been no creatures more dramatic or scarier. Whether they would be as popular if they existed today and were stomping down the high street, I don't know, but they're perfect for films because they are more spectacular, more awesome than most animals today, more like monsters, and yet they are real.

The new Walking With Dinosaurs film as I think this is the most realistic portrayal of dinosaurs that's ever been done on the big screen. I spend my life studying dinosaurs, pouring over the dry remains of their multi-million-year-old bones. This film brings dinosaurs to life unlike anything I've ever seen before. It brought a tear to my eye seeing the Gorgosaurus for the first time.

There are a number of acronyms in existence that have been used in the English language for hundreds of years, and all have been abbreviated for a good reason, because they were in another language to begin with. However the acronyms of today differ entirely. They have been created purely for convenience, and they do nothing but promote laziness in written and sometimes spoken English. 'ATM', we're well and truly in an age of 'LOLing', 'OMGing' and 'ROFLing'. However, since when has it become acceptable to communicate like this, rather than using good, old-fashioned, full length words?

Not to want to see these wolves dead is ultimately to want to see them returned to captivity and a life sentence of imprisonment. Those protestors are as guilty of animal cruelty as the zoo keepers themselves who exploit animals for human pleasure in the first place.
