On the Brink of Extinction; Best of This Week's TV Tune in and Make Your Vote Count If You Want to Help Save These Eight Endangered Species from Mankind's Excesses NEW! EXTINCT STV, WEEKNIGHTS, VARIOUS TIMES

Every night this week, Sir Trevor McDonald and Zoe Ball will present films from some of our best-loved personalities who will champion the cause of eight species on the brink of extinction.

Then we can vote for our favourite, which will raise money to make a real difference to their survival. Zoe says: "The nice thing is the people really care about the animals' plight. It's quite moving. They all cry at some point in the film!

"But it's not all doom and gloom. They come to the studio and tell us more about the situation then we'll report from a conservation project."

The programme is being made with the World Wildlife Fund, which helps protect endangered animals and their habitats. Zoe says: "It's not like Pop Idol where one animal gets all the money.

"Half will go to the animal who gets the most votes and the rest split among the others."
