Starlinggrad!


Original playout date: 26 January 2008
Duration: 1:11

Some times in the year, here in Warsaw, we get inundated with huge flocks of starlings.

Despite Clarice Starling, starlet of Silence of the Lambs, being named after them, starlings are not a native species in America, leading to some Americans wanting them to be destroyed in that country or greatly reduced. Strangely though, they are not suggesting that they themselves be culled and their spaces given back to the Cherokees and Mohawks, so it looks like one law for the birds and quite another set of laws for the human beings.

Quote of the clip: “I can’t work out if it’s a more Hitchcockian or Orvellian…”
