The Original Classic Series
Adapted from Gerald Durrell's best-selling autobiography, this much-loved classic tells the story of the naturalist's childhood years spent on the island of Corfu.
A new world of freedom and adventure opens up to young Gerald when his somewhat eccentric family decide to leave the grey skies of England behind and start a new life.
He soon discovers the wonder of nature in this sun-drenched environment and into the lives of the family come a succession of colourful characters, including larger-than-life taxi-driver Spiro who helps them move from one villa to the next.
An acclaimed series with wonderful performances by Hannah Gordon and Brian Blessed.
