All six episodes from the BBC drama that tells the true story of the Mottershead family who founded Chester Zoo. George Mottershead (Lee Ingleby) and his wife Lizzie (Liz White) live in a small flat above his father Albert (Peter Wight)'s grocery shop with their daughters Muriel and June (Amelia Clarkson and Honor Kneafsey) but feel it's time to move out and start a life of their own. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, George often finds solace in rescuing abandoned animals. When he sees a dilapidated manor in Chester for sale at auction he borrows money from the bank and purchases the land with a view to converting it into a modern zoo where animals are allowed to roam free. The episodes are: 'The Idea', 'Moving On', 'The Village Rivals', 'The Fund of Chester Zoo', 'In the Middle of a Local War' and 'The Final Decision'.
Alan Taylor (Palookaville) directs this comical re-imagining of the history surrounding Napoleon Bonaparte's exile and death on the remote Atlantic island of St Helena, based on Simon Leys' novel 'The Death of Napoleon'. A secret network of loyal Bonapartists is poised to return the Emperor (Ian Holm) to Paris and help him back onto the throne. To achieve this end, they enlist a double, deckhand Eugene Lenormand (also played by Ian Holm), to take his place on the island, where he has been under very comfortable and luxurious house arrest for the past six years. But things don't go as planned: the ship, supposedly bound for France, docks instead on Belgian shores, and when he makes his way back to France by barge, Napoleon discovers that his contact, Truchaut (Sergio Ballo) has died. Meanwhile, back at St Helena, the lookalike Lenormand is enjoying his newfound luxury too much to implement his side of the bargain...
