Summer Special 2019: Episode 2



Ben Fogle and Kate Humble reveal big plans for handsome Harry, the pin-up boy of the park, who is destined to head up a brand new pride at Longleat. He’s been living with his mum and aunt, and now they’ve been moved on to a new collection, this young lion can be moved to meet his eight lionesses for the very first time. But has he got what it takes, and how quickly will things – including his beautiful face – turn ugly?\n\nKate plays cupid for a lovelorn emu. Ever since Bourbon arrived at Family Farm, she’s been a bit of a loner, but keeper Gemma reckons she’s got just the boy to woo her and win her heart. Bounty might not be a pin up like Harry, but Gemma dreams of baby emus. The trouble is Bourbon runs a mile the minute Bounty - not necessarily the most sensitive of Romeos - comes anywhere near her.\n\nJean Johansson catches up with Anne, the Asian elephant. Devoted keepers have been doing everything they can to help strengthen and rehabilitate this old favourite ever since she arrived at the park. An elephant’s trunk has hundreds of muscles and is crucial to the survival of these gentle giants. Jean joins keeper Kevin to see how Anne’s trunk copes in her own mini rainforest in the depths of Wiltshire. Has she got the strength to scythe through it as her cousins would in the wild?\n\nAs well as giving baby anteater Bella her first shower, Jean’s also on a mission to discover who’s the cleverest in the park as the meerkats take on the otters. Who can crack a brain-teasing puzzle the fastest?
