Can't ever forget it. Still in the industry as Curator at Dartmoor Zoo of "We bought a zoo" fame. (Google it) Let me know...

Been involved in just the same procedure. Very interesting, and dangerous for the Giraffe! Cool shot.

Re: Windsor Safari Park closes it's gates THE CLOSE DOWN

I was there throughout the process until the Lions were shipped off up north. I went with them. Park closed Oct 92 and i finally went in Feb 93. Rest of park followed and by Dec 93 pretty much everything was gone.

Advert

Thought you all might like to see this. It took four days to film for a thirty second advert! The bits of car the Baboons removed were made of sweets to encourage them to take them. Brilliant! Its part of a compilation of Hamlet cigar adverts. Skip forward to 1 min 44 secs. Enjoy. http://www.youtube...

Re: 1986 Souvenir Video Tape

Just been watching some of these cips. Amazing! Very fast download. About 30 seconds for my laptop, (which is nothing special!!). Quality of clip is good too. Brought back floods of memories. Thanks for putting them up. Awesome.
