Anthony Smith visits Peking Zoo - the most visited zoo in the world - and in so doing looks through a window into China - China that few Westerners ever see.
Here, on the outskirts of Peking, within a zoo of lakes, trees, willow-pattern bridges - and Red Guards
- are the only pandas ever bred in captivity. The latest arrival, Jer Jer , plays like a puppy with ANTHONY SMITH. The zoo has a very good breeding record and yet some of its cages are dismal ... and some are superb.
Chinese attitudes show in the collections too. Three thousand carp i are there. The Chinese have bred goldfish fanatically for thousands of years. Surely in no other zoo could you ask a child what was her favourite animal and get the answer ' The big carp '?

Hands Off the Classics
In the 17th century Troilus and Cressida was produced with all the dirty bits cut out. In the 18th, King Lear had a happy ending. In the 19th century the classics were brazenly cut in half. In our own century we take a scalpel to the classic rather than a hatchet. Nevertheless a fascinating debate rages over the border line between interpretation and vandalism.

In 1934 the then Marquess of Anglesey made a family film ridiculing the Blackshirt movement. He called it The Pinkshirts and it starred his five children and his house-guests. The Pinkshirt leader, played by the young Lord Arran, is overthrown thanks to the courage of 14-year-old Lady Rose - ' Peter Fleming was staying with us - it was a lovely summer and Daddy said " let's do a film ".' Now Lady Rose MeLaren , she guides JAMES CAMERON through the plot.
