Londonist Out Loud: All Creatures Great And Small

Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London.

This week N Quentin Woolf is at the Royal Veterinary College in Camden, where he hears how the centre has progressed the science of animal medicine, from the early days with race horses, to achieving realistic special effects in Harry Potter films. He also sees a dissection in progress and meets live cows and a pony.

WARNING: Contains bits squeamish people might find makes them go a bit wonky. Especially if you like cats.
