Elephant Diaries

Series 1

Episode 4

Duration: 29 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One WestLatest broadcast: on BBC Four HD

At the Nairobi nursery, the dry season brings a flood of new baby orphans, and Michaela meets the latest newcomer, a happy and charismatic baby elephant called Jipe. In southern Tsavo, Emily, the matriarch of the large orphan herd, is behaving strangely, throwing her weight around like an adolescent teenager. Her keepers think she may be ready to go back to the wild.

Up at the new release site in northern Tsavo, Jonathan follows the newly formed herd of ten little orphans as they start to bond. But just as they are beginning to settle down, disaster strikes - the herd is attacked by a rabid dog and it looks like all the orphans here, including gentle little Wendi, may have to be put down.
