Inside the Zoo

BBC Scotland (8 x 60 mins)

Three hundred and sixty five days a year, over 200 dedicated staff face the challenges, joys and complex logistics of caring for over 3,000 animal residents at Edinburgh Zoo and its sister site, Highland Wildlife Park.

This new eight-part series provides a fun and fact-filled insight into the lives of the keepers - the dedicated teams who operate in both a centre of zoological excellence and an iconic UK tourist attraction.

Narrated by Edinburgh’s own Gail Porter, it’s welcome to a world where state-of-the-art-science, endangered species conservation and the completely and utterly unpredictable are a part of daily life.

At both locations and out-in-the-field working with endangered species, this friendly and expert team deliver warm stories, fascinating specialist factual take-out and real behind-the-scenes insight into the workings of a zoo that leads the way.
