Adapted from Gerald Durrell's bestselling 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 BBC series with wonderful performances by Hannah Gordon and Brian Blessed.

If your a fan of gerald durrell you should certainly check this dvd out. The scenes around the island of corfu alone are breathtaking - that, coupled with the excellent acting of hannah gordon and brian blessed (i was nearly crying with laughter at times) makes this one to watch. The series follows very closely to the story in his book. Apart from the wildlife that would seem to be his family, the series goes very indepth at geralds facination with the wildlife of the island and animals in general. I sugest that this is a dvd that everyone should own.

 An absolute Gem!!

I absolutely loved this as a girl when it was first shown on TV in 1987 and was over the moon when I realised it was available on DVD. The series stays very close to Gerald Durrell's book which recounts the colourful childhood he spent in 1930s Corfu along with his wonderful, eccentric family and many many animals. Full of humour, warmth and wonderful scenary this is an absolute gem.
