This musical by Peter Rose and Anne Conlon was specially commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature to mark the organisation's 50th anniversary.
The oak tree, the panda, the polar bear and the tiger remind us of the great wonders and beauties of the earth and the intricate threads of life linking every living thing. The children of the world tell us about the amazing web of trade and communication which has produced our exciting modern world with its global transport systems and its ever-changing technology.
But as the musical unfolds, the characters become more and more worried by changes beyond their control. The children of the world wonder how they can help to protect this wonderful life we all know.
