  • Description

    Southam, Warwickshire.

    Farmer, Leslie Clews has a small private zoo on his farm.

    Pauline, Leslie's wife is seen grooming a pet fox on a table outside, a greyhound watches. C/U of a chimp in clothes sitting on Leslie's lap as he drives a tractor. Various shots of Leslie and the chimp driving around the farm. Leslie's son, Terry is seen holding a leopard on a chain as he feeds the pigs. Leslie leads the chimp down to a pond where they feed the ducks. Leslie's youngest son, Brian is seen rounding up cattle on a donkey with a tree-monkey on his shoulder. M/S of storks in a ramshackle, muddy pond. C/U of Brian and the chimp feeding baby badgers with milk bottles - the chimp ends up drinking the milk.

    The appearance of the farm zoo and most of the animals is drab and shabby - Rolf Harris would not be impressed!

    Cuts exist - please see separate record.
