A TV documentary tonight focuses on the animal rights protest against Oxford University's £18m animal testing laboratory.

Monkeys, Rats and Me: Animal Testing is being shown tonight on BBC2 at 9pm.

It features an interview with Oxford neurosurgeon Tipu Aziz, whose research involving monkeys has helped to develop pioneering ways of treating Parkinson's Disease.

The programme also focuses on the activities of Speak, the peaceful protest group which is leading the campaign against the building of the laboratory, which has not yet been completed.
