Arena - Animal Night (1989)

Concept and creative process

The opening title sequence for an 'Arena' special evening-long series of programmes on the theme of animals showed a very different take on the traditional story of Noah's Ark, with the animals depicted as food for Noah and his family throughout the deluge, rather than being saved to regenerate the species after the flood. A complex model shoot with effects and puppetry ends in the iconic 'Arena' neon logo (a message in a bottle) being thrown overboard.
