A grand tour of some of the world's outstanding zoos with Anthony Smith
Germany's oldest zoo: set in a quiet park within a mile of the Berlin Wall, this is a zoo of contrasts-a place where it's not the roar of lions that attracts attention but the sound of pneumatic drills rebuilding a zoo almost totally destroyed in the last war. But despite its difficulties, the zoo has fully regained its international reputation and has the largest animal collection in Europe.
