Monkey Mischief at Whipsnade 1930

15 mins United Kingdom

The zoo keepers at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park certainly have their hands full as they enjoy afternoon tea with the chimpanzees in this home movie from the 1930s. We also see feeding time for the giraffes, the rhinos, and the penguins, as well as a lovely view of the surrounding Chiltern countryside.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
