A Day at the Zoo
History Documentary hosted by Richard Bacon, published by BBC broadcasted as part of BBC Time Shift series in 2013 – English narration
Using unique home movie footage, this is the story of how zoos captured the imagination of the British – from the first ‘scientific zoological garden’ in Regent’s Park to Gerald Durrell’s ‘conservation ark’, which became Jersey Zoo. It’s a nostalgic tale of show-stopping animals – such as the original Jumbo the elephant and Bristol Zoo’s Alfred the gorilla – as well as bold innovations like the make-believe mountains of London Zoo and Dudley’s animal enclosures without bars. No wonder, despite modern concerns about keeping animals captive, a day at the zoo remains one of Britain’s most popular family days out.
