Summary
Our Zoo, is a six-part BBC drama based on the inspiring story of our founder George Mottershead and his family in the 1930s. When George Mottershead, an ex-serviceman still struggling to come to terms with the effects of the Great War, finds a monkey locked up in a quarantine cage, it sparks an idea that becomes a life-long mission. He dreams of building Britain's first zoo without bars. Soon, he starts buying up unwanted animals. But George lives with his parents Lucy and Albert Mottershead, his wife Lizzie and his daughters Mew and June. The family home is bursting at the seams and something has to change. Then George spies a large, rambling and rundown estate in the countryside. It's the perfect spot for his zoo... From struggling to win over the hostile locals, to coaxing two bears off a hillside, and working out the best way to transport a dozen penguins, this series follows the ups and downs faced by the Mottershead family as they try to get George's idea off the ground. Funny and tender, Our Zoo shows how with dogged determination and a little recklessness, anything is possible
