Isis Town and Country - - Television -

This six-part Bri­tish drama se­ries tells the story of real-life wildlife en­thu­si­ast Ge­orge Mot­ter­shead, who in the early 20th cen­tury, set out to cre­ate a new zoo, one in which the an­i­mals would not be con­fined to cages. In 1931, his dream would be re­alised with the open­ing of the Ch­ester Zoo, which to this day re­mains the most vis­ited wildlife at­trac­tion in Bri­tain and is rated one of the world’s best zoos. Tonight, Ge­orge (Lee In­gleby, right) tries to res­cue to Hi­malayan black bears from a cave. Mean­while, Rev­erend Webb (Stephen Camp­bell Moore) is de­ter­mined to find out what the Mot­ter­sheads are up to.
