Our Zoo: Episode 6

6/6 Can the Mottersheads convince a visiting inspector to overturn the council ban on the zoo?

First broadcast 8 October 2014

The family’s last chance is to convince a visiting inspector from the Ministry of Health to overturn the council ban on a zoo at Oakfield. But when the nets of the aviary are slashed, George begins to lose his grip on the case – and his self-control. Lizzie is concerned he might throw their last chance away so reaches out for legal help, which comes at a cost. 

The high emotion of the hearing sees a hidden truth tumbling out for Reverend Webb, which helps tip the balance. An inspection of the zoo is held but the final decision could take weeks – can the family hang on and is there life after Oakfield?
