A grand tour of some of the outstanding European and American zoos with Anthony Smith
7: BASEL, SWITZERLAND
A place to live and breed
This largest and oldest Swiss zoo is one of the richest and most up-to-date in Europe. Its director, Dr. Ernst Lang, is dedicated to the ideal that a zoo is a place where animals can live and breed rather than just exist and eventually die. The number of Basel-bred animals exported annually to other zoos is far greater than the number of new animals brought into the zoo, and the lengthening list of ' firsts ' is further evidence of Basel's success.
The first European Indian Rhino was born here, and Goma, the first European gorilla, now lives with her parents, brothers, and sisters as a family unit in a section of the extensive new air-conditioned Ape House. Next year the collection of fish and reptiles will move to a three-quarter million pound Vivarium-an example of modern zoo thinking which will push Basel even further ahead.

Does it matter how you look? Does your appearance have any bearing on what you are? In this programme children turn their usual perceptive eye on whether appearance really is skin-deep: and in doing so they cast a searching glance or two at some of our more obvious characteristics.
