Read Natasha Footman's film review of The Wind In The Willows

The extras found on this edition of the DVD, made up of just one behind the scenes documentary and two almost identically natured photo albums, are much less than would be expected of such a recent production. In fact, the photo albums are hardly an extra themselves in this day and age of internet literacy, and are two slideshows of fairly bland cast and crew pictures.

The behind the scenes documentary, The Further Adventures Of Toad, is a much more exciting feature, and is enjoyable for all its 24 minutes or so. Containing various interviews, trial footage and video diaries, it is a joy to watch and much more humorous than you would expect. This extra certainly makes the production itself more endearing, showing it to be charmingly low-key and British, with playful interactions between a thankfully humble cast and crew that makes a pleasant change from the conceited world of Hollywood.

The visual and audio quality of both the extras and the feature film are as clear and clean as would be expected from such a recent production, and although there is an occasional blurriness that spreads itself across the screen in times of fast movement, it is hardly noticeable.
