Step back in time to the 1930’s and experience the incredible true story of George Motteshead, a man who had a vision to build a zoo without bars.
After purchasing ‘Oakfield Manor’, at a bargain price, he began to envision a zoo where animals were cared for and above all, happy. Along his amazing journey to eventually creating what is Chester Zoo, he faced intense opposition from the public. Watch how George Motteshead would forever change the way zoo’s house their animals.
I absolutely loved 'Our Zoo' and Faye shone in her first major TV role playing the lovely Agnes Franklin.
You can currently pick up the entire series on DVD for an incredible bargain price of just £5.99 from the BBC Shop. Click on the link below.
