  • Description

    Redbourne, Hertfordshire.

    Several shots show some tiny and extremely cute fox cubs being weighed on a table, while Grahame Dangerfield makes a note of each one; a girl, Betty Darvel, feeds one of them with a long pipette full of milk. Grahame brushes a cub while the others sit with a black dog.

    Other animals seen at Grahame's animal sanctuary are a pelican, a kinkajou (mongoose type animal), Bob the badger, a gannet, geese, a snowy owl, a lovely baby deer (a Muntjac), a South American Ocelot, a Mynah bird, a polecat-ferret, and a buzzard (?). Most of the animals were offered to Grahame by viewers of his television programme.

    We see Grahame releasing a swan back onto a river, while Betty Darvel watches with Freda, the tame fox.

    Note: there is correspondence on file plus notes from Grahame Dangerfield on the animals seen.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
