The Zoo

Breeding critically-endangered Sumatran tigers, preparing for the arrival of a new baby elephant, and managing a feisty group of chimpanzees – it's all in a day's work for staff at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). "It's not enough just to be passionate about animals and to love them. You've actually got to almost look inside their head. Anyone can dominate an animal through a cage but getting an animal to co-operate is extremely rewarding." - ZSL London Zoo senior keeper Tony Cholerton.

Produced by Wild Pictures, the series offers a privileged and unique insight into the at times emotionally intense stories of keepers and their 20,000 charges at one of the world's oldest zoos at its base in Regent's Park and country estate at Whipsnade.
