‘The Zoo' goes inside one of the most important and yet entertaining and iconic institutions in the whole of Great Britain - London Zoo in Regents Park. Here we will meet the dedicated professionals who, every day, live with and look after the Zoo’s most precious assets - the 15,000+ animals that are kept there.

This huge collection of wild animals needs an awful lot of careful looking after and that takes a massive amount of time – and an equally massive amount of money. Our series of films will meet the staff totally dedicated to doing the job. The Zoo gets no government funding – it’s a registered charity dependent on the money it raises from us the public. Not that long ago the zoo was threatened with closure for financial reasons and they are determined not to let that happen again. Now for the first time in more than ten years the zoo are allowing the cameras in to watch their work and the love and care they give all their residents.
