Moondance & TV3 Go Wild at ‘The Zoo’
16 Feb 2010 :
The Zoo
Wednesday, February 17th will see TV3 broadcast of the first episode of new documentary series, ‘The Zoo’. The series will mark the first time in Dublin Zoo’s 179 year history that a camera crew has been allowed this unique and exclusive access.

The six part series from Moondance Productions looks to show the public a side of the Zoo that visitors have never experienced before.

‘The Zoo, narrated by ‘Newstalk’s Tom Dunne, will take viewers behind the scenes to see the activities of the dedicated men and women who take care of the 600 plus exotic animals who live there, audiences will share in the highs and lows of life in the Zoo and gain access to an incredible world that few of the general public have ever seen.

Series Producer and Director, Shane Brennan (Redlegs) tells IFTN: “This unique series brings viewers close to some of the world’s most endangered animals and gives them an opportunity to see first-hand how the work of Dublin Zoo forms part of a wider global project to conserve and protect the animals of the world.

“Viewers not only get up close and personal with the many beautiful, exotic and often critically endangered animals housed in the zoo, but also join the keepers on the exhilarating and often emotional journey of taking care of them; from day to day life and animal husbandry to the excitement of births, deaths and unexpected emergencies, there’s something new happening every day and in ‘The Zoo’, no two days are ever the same.”

Shane Brennan also acted as the series’ director of photography and the project was edited by Andrew Hearne (Bye Bye Now). More information on the show can be found on the official TV series website www.thezoo.ie. ‘The Zoo’ starts this Wednesday at 7.30pm on TV3.
