The Screen Guide

In the South Eastern corner of Australia, clustered around the city of Melbourne, are three zoos, all run by one central board. Each zoo is distinct in its focus, and each worthy of the international recognition it receives. The keepers are passionate, many of the animals endangered and the management is continually struggling against lack of funding. ZOO'S COMPANY goes behind the scenes, in a 'fly on the wall' observation of the joys and the heartaches, the frustrations and the tensions, the daily grind and the celebrations of the zoos.
