A new period drama about the early days of a 1930s zoo...

It may be airing midweek but there’s a real Sunday night feel about this charming drama exploring the founding of Chester Zoo in the 1930s. Lee Ingleby will have you rooting for his character, shell-shocked World War One veteran George, who finds a new purpose when he rescues unwanted animals and decides to build a zoo. Liz White is equally captivating as George’s wife, who eventually supports his outlandish dream, and Anne Reid is brilliant as George’s despairing mother. There are scene-stealing performances, too, from the family’s weird and wonderful furry new friends. Perfect autumn drama.
