Elephants have had a special place in the lives of the Chipperfield family ever since they shipped their first herd from Sri Lanka in 1947. Over the following two years, 25 elephants arrived in Britain and helped transform their small circus into the largest tenting show in Europe.
Mary Chipperfield, whose mother accompanied these animals on their voyages, visits Sri Lanka for the first time to find out about the elephant population today.
She meets the Director of Wildlife Conservation, Lyn De Alwis , at Colombo Zoo, observes herds of wild elephants in the Gal Oya National Park, working elephants at a logging camp near Kandy and rescued baby elephants at the orphanage in Pinnewala.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
