The sec­ond part of tonight’s At­ten­bor­ough dou­ble bill tells the story of the re­mark­able life and death of Jumbo the ele­phant, whose story is said to have in­spired the Dis­ney movie Dumbo. Sir Dave joins a team of sci­en­tists and con­ser­va­tion­ists to un­ravel the mys­te­ri­ous story of this large African ele­phant who ar­rived in Lon­don Zoo in 1865, be­came a favourite of Queen Vic­to­ria, but was then sold to PT Bar­num’s cir­cus in Amer­ica.
