A trip to the zoo for mother and son doesn't go quite to plan, when our young hero wanders off to explore on his own. This entertaining colour film is a beautifully shot record of the animals, birds, and buildings at Belle Vue Zoological Gardens in Manchester, as well as a humorous tale of a boy and his zoo experiences. For boy and animals alike, lunch is a very important part of the day!
