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.
