An African elephant at home – photograph taken by Frederik Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Lehn
This powerful documentary is about a giant and those who knew him. It is fascinating, sad … and so important to watch.
Sir David Attenborough is with us from start to finish. It is he who picks through the evidence to show us the life and times of Jumbo, the celebrity Victorian elephant.

Wild baby elephants (Loxodonta africana africana), born amongst the acacias of Zimbabwe, are being sold to zoos in China by the Zimbabwean authorities.
In 2012 four baby elephants, one of whom is already dead, were transported to China and it is believed that more are due to follow shortly.
